Victory Amplification Announces the Richie Kotzen RK100 Custom Limited Edition

A 100-watt all-tube head that's individually signed by Richie and limited to just 20 pieces.

England (September 9, 2019) -- Victory Amplification proudly announces the Richie Kotzen RK100 Custom Limited Edition, a 100-watt all-valve head, individually numbered and signed by Richie, limited to just 20 pieces and available only direct from Victory.

Victory launched the Richie Kotzen RK50 Series back in 2017, rekindling a long-standing association between the celebrated American rock musician and Victory chief designer, Martin Kidd. The RK50 has been a great success, offering all-valve no-compromise rock tones with on-board reverb and tremolo. In 2018, Richie approached us with the idea of a bigger RK amp – a 100-watt head for touring that delivers old-school, big-stage rock tones, but with a couple of usability tweaks. It would need to evoke the sounds and feel of the classic, late-1960s British rock heads, but with Martin Kidd’s unmistakeable sonic stamp.

Instead of a traditional two-channel/four-input setup, the RK100 CLE features Normal and Bright channels with a single input; they can be used independently or mixed together. There is also a bright switch to add extra sparkle to the bright channel if required. After the traditional EQ section comes a master volume to enable wonderful drive tones at more friendly volumes, adjusting presence to taste. For even more control over volume and dynamic response, the low-power mode drops the amp’s output to 30 watts. In addition, there is the option of using either EL34 or 6L6 output valves. There is also a bypassable series effects loop for external reverbs, delays and so on.

The Victory RK100 Custom Limited edition is finished in Richie’s preferred white, black and gold colour scheme, limited to just 20 pieces worldwide, numbered and signed. Needless to say, we are immensely proud that Richie chooses Victory!

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.
