This collaboration with Richie Kotzen is a rekindling of a long-standing friendship between the celebrated American rocker and Victory Amplification chief designer, Martin Kidd. There's a huge range of gain available from the single channel, including a footswitchable boost function. A single tone pot keeps it simple, while onboard reverb and tremolo give you ambience for days. We are so proud to be behind such a brilliant and unique artist.
Single Channel design, Richie loves the simplicity of a single-channel amp where he can ride the transition from clean to crunch to lead gain from the volume pot of his guitar. Footswitchable boost.. Just like stepping on your favourite full-range boost pedal, except this is another valve gain stage to take you into singing sustain.
We've chosen a clean sounding digital reverb for the Compact Series head. Somewhere between a plate and room-style ’verb, it gives you tons of ambience.
One of the earliest guitar effects, tremolo can add anything from a subtle throb to full-on metronomic staccato rhythm. Footswitchable, of course.
Speaker damping works in the power section. Set it to 'off' for increased bass response and cabinet/speaker resonance. There will also be more presence/high-end with speaker damping off.

IDEAL FOR: A bigger sound than our Compact 1x12 cabs. Works especially well with the RK50 series and Sheriff 22. It can also suit the V40 The Duchess and V40 Deluxe if you like more speaker 'colour' and more rocky, closed-back feel than the open-back WC-75.
SPEAKER CHARACTERISTICS: The G12M-65 Creamback is less sensitive/efficient (97dB) than the Vintage 30 and also the H-75 Creamback, using a medium-magnet (35 ounce) 12-inch driver. Celestion regard it as a 'more powerful Greenback' and that is the perfect description. Expect that classic, 'woody' tone and feel to add colour to your medium gain sounds, with a little speaker breakup to boot… albeit with a full 65 watts power handling which is 40 more than the standard Greenback. Compared with the 75-watt Creamback, the 65 is less sensitive/efficient so sounds less loud at equivalent amp volume settings. It has more colour to the tone overall, a looser bottom end and breaks up earlier.
Power handling: 65 watts
Speakers: 1 x Celestion G12M-65 Creamback
