The other guitarist in my band rented a krankenstien and a random 212 which i cant identify for a show tonight. He was using a spider and it broke. He just called me and told me that the krank actually sounds worse then his spider.

What would be a good starting point for an EQ of this amp?

Any tips to make it sound good?

BTW were a progressive metal band and he is using an ibanez s620exqm.

Volume = waaaaay up.

Also try putting the EQ and gain up to 12 o' clock and work your way round from there.

the random 2x12 could be the downfall. if the speakers are crappy your tone will be too.

what kind of speakers are in it ?
i used to be a mod, then i took an arrow in the knee.

not sure what kind of speakers, he told me there are no brand names or markings on it, and he wont be at my house for about an hour for me to check.

It's probably the 212, cause a Krank sounding worse than a spider?
I doubt it.

As everyone else has said, bad speakers are going to have a major impact on the tone.
Considering how many good reviews I have heard about the Krank, I would assume that would be the issue, unless he REALLY sucks at EQing.

the 212 is a traynor ycx 212. I told him to turn it up and he said it sounded better but not amazing, if we dont get it working with the 212 we will probably borrow a 412 from the band before us.
