The innards aren't nearly as boring as I thought they would be Still very messy, but at least it isn't pcb upon pcb. Cool Stuff. The last one is just to show off the transformers, because I have really been missing big transformers. Got to play a little bit after work today, I just was kinda knocked out big this thing really sounds. I didn't really get to tinker a whole lot yesterday, but after playing a little bit more with it today it is really just a very big amp, almost like a more Brit version of a rectifier type of thing going on, but not all the flub. Again, I am still in the honey moon period, but I just cannot say how much I love this bad boy.

Retubed the Chadwick yesterday. Jj preamp and sovtek 5881 power tubes, just because I can't fit anything else in the amp comfortably lol. Sound is much improved, much clearer than the cheap no name Chinese preamp tubes, still very big sounding. Might try a tungsol in v1 to brighten it up a tad, fairly dark amp, it could use it

Nice gut shot.

And I finaly found out what that weird Krank on GC used was. It is from the 90's when there was no "Krank" company. Thats one that he made out of his little shop. That is all I could get out of Krank.

I did find that he has started another company called Stiff amplification. On that site he offers a amp I am guessing is his Revolution circut, and one that is called the AD90 (which I gathered is basicaly the 1980). Just thought I'd share that info.

Yeah what I got from the emails I have gotten is that they don't want to answer many questions about the older amps (maybe because of the falling out with tony ) but when I asked them about the diffrences in the Chadwick and the 1980 I felt I was given the shortest answers about the chadwick, but 2 paragraphs about the 1980. I think they want everyone to buy new not used.

Well I can't blame them there. They only get payed once , so new is probably better. I just noticed you have a 1980 now, y'know what that means right?

Oh yes, but I have to wiat untill I can get my USB port working so I can do pic's
But in advance, It is pretty badass and it works well with my Rev 4x12. Just played my first show with it last night, and doing it again tonight. Lots of people wanted to know what it was (other bands) and where I got it.

Sweet man! Can't wait for some pics. So, I have played one before, but that isn't the same as owning one. What is the sound like? What type of music are you using it for?

It sounds very similar to clips I have heard of the Splawn QR, but seems to have a bigger bass responce . But I havent actualy played a splawn to know for sure. My other guitarist uses a Mesa Dual and while it doesn't have that much lowend, it has a good deal.
I scored it for $670 shipped
I bought it for playing in my Prog-rockmetal band. Think Punk-Hardrock-Mastadon mix.

I still havent got but a very small Idea of the tones I can get out of it. I have only played it for ~4 1/2 hours but the sweep knob is kind sensitive, so I know there are lots of options.

Very HR Marshal tone. Kind of Splawnish, but with lots of low-end. It has quite abit of gain on tap. So far I havent felt the need to run any OD/boost pedals with it.

There is a diecent video on Kranks site, but it was done in the studio so there is deff production done on it, but live it sounds very close.

yes, but it was the 20 watt version, not the 50. It was diecent, but not in the same class as the 80watt. It sounded more like a DSL with a little bigger bottom, but not by much. Maybe a tad more gain, but not quite as fizzy as a marshall. But I only played with it for about 10-15 min at my local store.
