should i get a 6505+ or a krankenstein?


Quote by Gabel
Simple. It's the amp. Getting EVH tone out of a Twin Reverb is as likely as Nazis supporting jews.

6505 +, the Krankenstein is ****. I'll just wait for the other guys to agree with me and explain why.

EDIT: and I have played both before and the 6505 + kicks the ever loving crap out of the Krank, thats why I bought the Peavey.
As I see the ignorance of humanity engulfing reason and sanity like a wave of perpetual defeat and misery I ask myself, when the hell is everyone going to shut up and actually think?

depends what sound you're going for. old school thrash stuff i'd say krank. like van halen/nu-metal i'd look at 6505.

also look at the boogie triple recs. they're beastly.
i lost my virginity. can i have yours?

^ Nu-metal on a krank, old school thrash "Stuff" on a 6505. I actually really liked the krank revolution combo. But I have to agree, playing a 5150 was a tad better.

ok , i hear all the time on hear that krank sucks . some of my favorite bands play krank . most of my fav bands play 6505 but still - what is it about them that makes them suck . im not trying to sound like an ass here i just would like someone to fill me in so when someone says "hey , what have you heard about krank amps " i can explain to them instead of saying....uh Shadows Fall uses them.

They just endorse them for more cash, but I don't hate bands for it, recording and touring does cost alot of cash. Plus the Krank Rev. is not as bad a the Krankenstein but waaaaaaay over priced for what it is.

Krank's aren't bad amps, I actually kind of like them, the only problem is that you can ONLY get a modern metal tone from them. And that they are horribly overpriced.
#10
yes they are very over-priced . and they havent even been around long . its like their plan in the beginning was " ok , pay someone 50,000 dollars to stand next to this amp onstage , with it not hooked up , and take a picture . BAM thats 1,700 right there . but i do like mostly modern metal . i have respect for old metal though cause without those guys , we wouldnt have the new guys .... but slipknot....dont know how they were influenced ....

6505+ will sound meaner and a tad brighter.

krank will sound more grainy and darker.

i haven't tried a rev one, but the krankenstien i played was subpar.

Other way around. And the Triple Rectifiers are crap.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

6505+ is so much better than krank. i own a lot of amps. i actually collect them. and i bought a krank without trying it just to have one in the collection. i tried it out it was decent. i wanted to comapre it. so i plugged into a 5150 and a 6505. i returned the krank the next day and bought lunch for 2 with the money i got back for it.
#16
6505 hands down...
I played a Krankenstein...
and put lightly...
it sounded like a big, bassy version of my old squier practice amp with
the gain cranked...
and it cost about 200 times as much...

not the krank. obviously try it though, you may like it.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
