Manufacturer's ID: V4 The Kraken

The Victory V4 Series Pedal Preamps are not ‘normal’ pedals. The market is awash with incredible overdrive and distortion boxes that do a certain job in front of a great guitar amp. That’s one thing. An all-valve preamp is quite another.

Victory chief designer, Martin Kidd: “To the best of my knowledge, nobody has put four valves running at proper plate voltage in a pedal format before. Whether you opt for The Countess, The Sheriff or The Kraken, you have an entirely separate, alternative, all-valve front end for your home, live or recording setup. For your guitar amp, that means vastly expanded versatility thanks to two extra, all-valve channels offering genuine valve overdrive.”


V4 The Kraken
Heavy, progressive and extended range tones from VX The Kraken amp, developed with Rabea Massaad

Vol 1 and Vol 2 are lower and higher gain modes. They can be switched from the top panel or via the ‘remote’ TRS jack on the side of the pedal.
Bypass (on/off) is switchable remotely too.

Three positions, designed as a global setting to best match the V4 Pedal Preamp to your amp, because effects loops and amp front ends differ dramatically. Choose the one that sounds best.

Set the output levels of each mode independently, to taste. SET TO ZERO BEFORE TURNING ON!

Powerful bass, middle and treble controls. These also have a significant effect on the gain character and drive levels – just like in any valve guitar amp.

Protection for the knobs when you’re stomping.

Clearly labelled so there is no confusion.

12V DC, 800mA minimum. There are four valves, so we need plenty of current! Adapter supplied.

Overall Rating 4.6/5 (5 reviews)

Super good and versatile pedal. Little spendy but basically a new amp. Preserves your guitars sound alot better than most heavy amps

Awesome pedal! Great for high gain tones

Archibald S. - 2/9/2020

Really nicely made, quality product. I feel the front end needs a little bit of a push to get decent modern high gain sounds.

David O. - 15/6/2020
