Victory Amplification is excited to update the V30 MKII The Jack to include a wooden sleeved version to the compact family. The V30 MKII Jack is a 42-watt, two-channel, three-mode, all-valve guitar amplifier. The V30MKII Jack is evolved from the V30 Countess, Victory’s first ever Compact Series head that was developed with the help of Guthrie Govan in 2013.
Renowned for their exceptional craftsmanship and unbeatable portability, our customers now have the option to choose between our classic lunchbox style heads or the all-new wooden sleeved heads for the V30 MKII Jack. Originally developed with Guthrie Govan as his ‘flying amp’, the V30 MKII features an all-new Clean-channel Crunch mode and the footswitchable ‘Nomod’ function to offer two levels of bass response.
The original V30 has very distinct clean and overdrive channels. There is massive headroom and clarity in the former, with a ton of heavy rocking overdrive in the latter. With V30MKII, we’ve added an extra footswitchable crunch mode to the clean channel – developed for V130 The Super Jack– that offers a whole new palette of pushed clean, crunch and light overdrive tones to the party. Along with the new ‘Nomod’ function, the V30 is now the ultimate ultra-compact all-rounder.
All the features and sounds from the original V30 MKII Jack are present but there are leather corners, a leather handle and a deluxe Victory logo, adding an extra layer of British hand made quality to the family.
