Description & Specs

From Victory:

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.

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.

I recommend this product
Monster of an amp. Packs a mean punch. Super high gain and beautiful clean in a small box.

It’s a compact 100 watt tube amp. Offers British style tones and with a flick of the switch can go straight into high gain American territory. The Brit channel reminds of the grit you get from a Marshall but with a hint of the polished glossy sound and feel of a Friedman. You can’t go wrong with the high gain channel either. It’s a ridiculous amount of gain. The amp is not designed for the bedroom player as even the lowest volume setting will be excessively loud.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, fill out the Return Request form below, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days.
