What a monster!

25.03.2017
After a long time, I got the Kraken as my first Vollpöhren Amp. It is mainly intended for my band but also for the home set. And he fulfills these tasks with bravura.

I came to the amp about reviews of Rabea Massaad on YouTube, the versatility, the sound and the small practical form factor have convinced me to make myself a picture of the small amp. And what can I say, what the amp does, he does damn good.

In my case, he covers all needed sounds, my band and I play Progressive Rock / Metal and the amp is definitely suitable for this. Channel 1 is more British oriented, and channel 2 is quite clear in the direction of 5150, with the two master volumes, a fairly broad spectrum can be covered. Gain 1 is at eleven o'clock, so I can turn the volumepoti of the guitar down I create very nice clear cleans (here is 2nd master volume very handy to maintain the volume) and through a fully turned volume poti a very nice crunchsound, with a small thrust through an overdrive channel 1 a nice bit of a biting rhythm sound. Gain 2 is with me for solos and harder, percussive riffs a là Meshuggah. The bass focus switch is permanently active with me, since I play a seven string and so a very nice articulation on the deep notes.

It was not easy for the box to decide, since very much sound sounded, but it was a 1936 Marshall, which still sounds damn good at room volume, and very directly on the torn of the amp Reacts.
Speaking of the room volume, in my bedroom I can operate the amp quite comfortably in the low mode, in principle the amp can be even quieter by still the single end switch, this is in my case however not necessary, since the master at 8 clock exactly Correct volume, and the single ended switch should always be careful to load both tubes evenly, which is quite possible with an exclusive bedroom use. Outside of the bedroom, the amp can be loud, too, bruchial, are still 50 watts of solid, and everything in between sounds very good

My only drawback is that the footswitch, which is super verareitet down has such an anti-slip foam that I need to remove to stick the Velcro for the pedalboard.

All in all, I am dealing here with a very versatile amp without frills.

Magic !

17.08.2016
What to say ... this head is all simply magic
The power is at the rendezvous whether it is in rehearsal or in concert even with a drummer who beats hard she is at the top
The gain 1 is all just sublime! Accompanied by a reverb and a delay it is a treat
The gain 2 is all good as well well fished.
The bass focus is very interressant especially with a guitar 7 strings
