Gain 1 gives you a classic British crunch to enjoyable high gain tones, whereas gain 2 gives you soaring lead tones, a biting mid range and a solid low end. While a lot of amplifiers will offer you a clean and crunch channels very few offer you just two high gain crunchy overdrive channels. If you play rock or metal the clean channel may be completely useless to you so why not replace that with another gain stage so you can free up your pedalboard of all of those pesky drive pedals. In the original tone testing of the Kraken (that included Martin Kidd & Rabea Massaad) it was agreed that 6L6s gave the tone we were looking for, & so the “regular” Kraken comes with these valves fitted as standard. However, if you think you’d prefer the Kraken fitted with EL34s you can order that as standard if you want. It should be noted that in Rabeas stereo Kraken set up (which is without doubt the most crushing guitar tone we’ve ever heard!) he uses EL34s in the amp he sets to channel 1 & 6L6s in the amp he sets to channel 2. Legend has it that the mysterious Kraken once ruled the seas with the help of its deadly tentacles – swallowing ships, whales and even terrified sailors whole.

At certain intervals, the kraken will initiate one of three different attacks so you should learn to read the tells and be prepared to respond appropriately. Larger crews should remain flexible against the kraken, shifting between tasks – attacking, repairing, and steering – as required. As always on the Sea of Thieves, good communication and crew coordination is key, so it helps to have one player designating tasks. That player should also keep an eye on the horizon for enemy vessels, as the last thing you’ll want during a kraken attack is to find yourself amidst a PvP encounter unprepared. When the Kraken attacks, it’s best to start with the basic principles of ship combat that we outline in our Sea of Thieves sailing guide. Although the kraken will pick a random crew to attack when it spawns, there’s a nifty trick you can use to tell when it will appear, if not who it will spawn on.
So many artists that play prog metal, djent or similar genres are using extended range guitars. Whether that is 7, 8 or even 9 strings the Kraken has a trick up its sleeve to make sure you never get flabby low end again. 50w is a lot of power but it is often needed at medium to larger size venues to even be heard when mic’ed up. When you are at home however that can just be overkill.
Preamp Focus tightens up the bottom end and boosts somewhat like a TS-type pedal would do. Separately, the Poweramp Bass Focus affects the negative feedback in the power section for looser bass with plenty of resonance; or tighter and more focused.
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.
Mesa Guitar Amplifier Heads
All crew mates should IMMEDIATELY stop what they’re doing and head below deck until the sound has subsided. If a crew member is hoovered off the ship, they should begin attacking the tentacle with their sword until they’re dropped into the inky water. Alternatively those still on the ship can use cannon fire to librate them, or even hoist them back onboard with a well-aimed shot of the harpoon at the front of the vessel. Be aware that this suction attack can also target crew mates on a rowboat.
Another mysterious sea monster was said to have been spotted last week. This massive creature would snag ships with its long, very strong tentacles and drag them deep into the ocean – never to be heard from again. According to Nordic folklore, the Kraken haunted the seas from Norway through Iceland and all the way to Greenland. ‘I used Google ruler and it says this is 30 meters from head to end, but the end looks like just the mid area of a giant squid, which means it could be 60+ meters long with tentacles. Nordic folklore speaks of a massive creature that haunted the icy seas of the North Sea, where it attacked passing vessels with gigantic tentacles.

Once the kraken encounter begins, its tentacles will rise out of the water, and you can immediately start attacking with cannons and ranged weapons. You can attack any tentacle poking vertically out of the water, although you’ll obviously find it easier to aim for those closer to your ship. Concentrate on the open “mouths” at the tip of each tentacle to do more damage.
- When you are at home however that can just be overkill.
- It’ll even travel as hand luggage when you fly!
- The Gain II channel picks up from where Gain I leaves off.
Victory know that you don’t always need 50w so you can switch the Kraken down to 15w, 9w or even 2w of power for use at home, in the studio or on smaller stages.
More seriously though, the attack will create a large number of holes in the lower deck of your vessel. As such, have as many crew mates as you can spare head down in preparation for rapid repairs. The front panel switch offers a low power mode for around 9 watts. In addition, you can use the single-ended modewhich switches to just one or other of the power valves . Low power and single-ended together is taking you down below 2 watts RMS. It works in the power section of the amp, offering either a tighter, more focussed bottom end, or conversely more loose and resonant depending on your needs and tastes. One for the preamp and one for the power amp.

This can be useful if you’re trying to increase the odds of encountering it to complete related Commendations, or even if you’re actively trying to avoid encountering it for what ever reason.

As such, if you’re actively trying to defeat the creature, you might want to lower your anchor at the first sign of the beast so that you don’t accidentally drift out of its area of attack while the battle rages on. Of course, if this does happen, you can simply about-face and sail back into the water to resume the attack. Like the Megalodon and Skeleton Ships, the kraken is what Rare classes an “emergent threat”, and will randomly spawn to attack a ship while it sails across deep water. You still get the Brit-inspired Gain I channel.
