title says it. i play avenged sevenfold, atreyu, bullet for my valentine, zakk wylde, etc.

i can get a krank revolution 1, used in like new condition for 750-800$

vs a peavey 6505+ head for around 700-750.

i'd be playing the head through a mesa rectifier 2x12 cab.

what do you think about this situation?

a7x, atreyu and bullet uses 6505's so I'd reccomend to go with that one.

First off, I'd suggest you follow the stickies at the top of the board. Find the "We Need:" sticky and post your situation.

(Note: Judging mostly off of YT vids. I've played a 6505 112 combo, but never played a krank)

I personally don't like the clean channel on either one of them. I mean, it ain't bad, but it isn't all that great.

The high gain is obviously the seller. Krank will have like, a mix between an American and a British (think 50% mesa boogie, 50% Marshall). That;s what I'm getting out of it.

The 6505 is the standard for br00tz ball crushing high gain. If you play metalcore, GO THIS.

The peavey 6534 might be a good middle path.


From the first thread.

However, given prices, the Krank is a steal for $800. There is almost no used market for them. 6505's go for $650 every day.

I'd go with the Krank, but be sure to play them both.

one of the ax7 guitarists use the 100 watt jet city head. which should be cheap than both of those brand new.

Thats a very good deal on the Krank. I've played both (owned a 5150). I would go with the Krank.

I would go for the Peavey, but that's because I don't like the way Krank's sound.

That should be the main issue at the end of the day. Which one do you think sounds better?

$800 for a Revolution 1 is decent, but you can find them for about $200 cheaper online. $800 for a Rev+ now that would be on par.

Either way though, a Krank is definitely a steal at that price...I'd go for it, then save up for a 6505 later on as there are definitely more on the used market.
