So i've heard a few demos of the Krank Krankenstein and Krank Revolution and they don't seem bad at all. Anyone have an opinion on these amps? Difference between the two and why one may be better than the other? Anything I should know about them? Thanks so much


EDIT: I play in drop A# and drop G# mainly if anyone has experience with these in a low tuning

search for the official krank thread, may take a few minutes, and there are at least a couple hundred posts.

^ correct, but Stiff amplification is no more since tony started Revolution amps which he has the Revolution, K-stein and 1980 under different names.

I really like Krank amps besides the K-stein (It is way too aggressive for me) and used they are really cheap.

KRANK!!! They are awesome. Already scheming on how to get another one. I've had a Chadwick, two different Rev Jr.s, and I'm hoping to get a K-Stein soon
I'm just a kickin' and a gougin' in the mud and the blood and the beer.

The thing about Krank (or at least my chadwick combo) it needs to be KRANKED for tone, these are not bedroom amps. Unless you are wanting to play loud or don't care about tone look elsewhere. They are nice amps, but you need the volume at 4+ for tone.

The Jr.s sound pretty good low, but I agree about the Chad and my 1980, they like volume

From what i'm seeing there are three different kinds of revolution.
The Original, the Rev1 and rev+
Does anyone know the difference between the three?

There are only 2 Revolution amps and there are 4 Rev Jr amps

There are the Rev series 1 and the Rev series 1+

The series 1 has 6l6 power section and the Rev1+ has a 6550 power section. They sound very similar, but the rev1+ has a little bigger bottom end.

Now there are also 4 versions of the Rev Jr. There is the Rev Jr 50 watt and rev Jr 20 watt and then there is the Rev Jr Pro 50watt and 20watt which has foot switchable channels and a better EQ section for the clean channel

In an old band I was in the other guitarist used a Krank Kranenstein.. It was a Beast.. But his was one of the first ones.. But,like Marhsall's, it needs to be played loud.. And they Are Loud..! We played the Heavier Classic Rock and '80s Hairband stuff.. It did it's job very well..
