NAMM 2024: Victory has dropped its all-new MK Clean and MK Overdrive guitar amps, which it says are the culmination of Head Designer Martin Kidd’s three decades in the industry. The two units have boldly set their sights on becoming the best single-channel clean amp and the best multi-channel overdriven amp available to players today.

The two tube amps, hand-made and hand-wired in England, are the result of a four-year design and build process for the British brand. Their development, Victory says, was underscored by a mantra of “no limits, no compromise.”
