Victory Amplification proudly unveils the VX Kraken MKII
October 2023: Victory Amplification proudly unveils the VX Kraken MKII, the culmination of four years of development. Building upon the legacy of the acclaimed VX Kraken series, the MKII represents the next evolution in the Kraken family.
The original Kraken, a 50 Watt compact powerhouse, is one of our most popular and highly regarded amplifiers. The updated MKII version, designed in collaboration with Victory artist Rabea Massaad, retains all the great features and sounds you love, while adding extra features and versatility.
The MKII still has 50 glorious Watts of power and two channels of gain, one for classic British-inspired rhythm tones and the other for tight, aggressive searing American high-gain sounds. However, we’ve added to Gain I a Clean mode, which can be footswitched or controlled by a three way switch on the front panel. There is also a presence control, a presence shift switch, assignable dual master volume, external rear bias outputs, and a Gain 1 balance control.
