VX100 The Super Kraken

100-watts, three-modes, plus Preamp Focus boost for rock, metal, extended-range and progressive players 

VX100 The Super Kraken is evolved from the award winning Compact Series VX The Kraken, developed with Rabea Massaad

 

The Kraken has morphed into an even more powerful beast via 100 massive watts of 6L6 power. You still get the Brit-inspired Gain I channel. You still get the colossal smack of Gain II’s US grind… but now there’s a whole new footswitchable clean mode, plus a footswitchable Preamp Focus function to add a little juice and cut to any and all modes. There’s also a preset Bass Focus option in the power section, footswitchable FX loop, assignable/ footswitchable dual master volumes… plus a useful 30-watt low-power mode for when you don’t need to blow the roof off. And, of course, MIDI switching capability.

1/2
Gain I Crunch… and Clean!

VX100’s clean mode is entirely new, allowing sparkling clean tones with superb headroom. Footswitch to crunch mode, and you're rocking hot-rodded British gain tones. Switch in the Preamp Focus to boost, tighten and punch through.

Gain II

The Gain II channel picks up from where Gain I leaves off. There's extra overdrive as you'd expect, but also a tighter bottom-end response and a more focussed midrange character, for a more American flavour in your riffs. Yes, it Djents if you want.

Preamp Focus
This preset footswitchable boost adds a little gain while also tightening up the bottom end and pushing mids. It's akin to what a clean-sounding TS-type pedal would do. It works in all three modes: Clean, Gain I and Gain II.
Power Amp Bass Focus
This preset footswitchable function affects the negative feedback in the power section. One setting delivers looser bass response with plenty of vintage-style resonance. The other setting is tighter and more focussed in the bottom end.

Dual Master Volumes
You can configure these to change with the channels (Gain I/Master I and Gain II/Master II) or have them independently footswitchable for two separate master volume levels whenever you want.
Low Power Mode

Select between 30 watts low power or 100 watts high power. Both are plenty loud, but the feel and dynamics are different.

Traditional Footswitching…

There are six footswitchable functions in VX100: Gain I/GainII, Clean/Crunch modes, Preamp Focus, Power Amp Focus, Master Volumes and the FX Loop… Two dual-button footswitches come with the amp as standard – see below.

MIDI Control

All six of the functions mentioned left are MIDI switchable with a compatible MIDI controller. That means you can pre-program multiple function changes to happen at once… along with all your other MIDI compatible devices, should you so desire.

Everything I love about the 50-watt VX, but with added tonal flexibility, MIDI control and even more power and headroom: it's just awesome
