JSX, has alot more headroom and is more versatile than the Krankenstein.

Are you pondering what I'm pondering pinky?

I think so, Brain, but where would we buy rubber pants at this hour?
Pretty wide price range.....why only between the two? There are many different amps to consider for the price.

Between the two, definitely the JSX....the krank is a horrible amp.

Have you played any of the amps? When spending this much, you should have a general idea of what you're looking at and exactly what you're looking for....

What are you looking for in the amp?
It isn't for me. A friend of mine had me post this. He's in a band with me and we incorperate a lot of stuff in our music. We do a lot of really heavy stuff but also soft and ambient sort of things. Basically he's looking for an amp that can cover a lot of musical styles. Any other suggestions would be great.
He could get a rectifier and an avatar cab: $2200 after tax....well worth it if he wants the balls to the walls heavy tone, in addition to a great clean and crunch

The JSX is also a great amp....the gain just doesn't have the same power that the recto does....still a great amp though!
