Over priced, sounds like a solid state...for the price you could nearly get 2 mesa duel rectofiers...like thats so sad i think..

a dual is actually 100$ more than the krank

For $400 they would be half decent.
For $2000, they're awful.
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.

Jeez, kids, how many of you Krank = 300 dollar dudes have played one? Into the Moat has one that he doesn't like because he probably has a Krankenstein. The Krankenstein is a HIGH GAIN, HIGH TREBLE amp. Into the Moat plays melodic death metal and likes DARK (5150-esque) tones. Different strokes. They're a killer distorted amp (Worth whatever the cost is? Not if it's over 1400... but a good/decent amp? Yes). I gotta say their cleans coupled with the high gain the clean sound is not my favorite.

Learn how to work an amp before immediately bashing it.

good one mate.......

I work in a studio (Im only 16, but I plan on studyin this stuff in collage) I have played kranks first hand, spent hours with it, couldnt get a decent tone. This band that were recording used the same settings as me, but they compressed the tracks etc. and it sounded pretty kick ass..But my point is what you hear on cd etc isnt always what you get.

from what i hear the rev 1 is pretty killer. i disliked the krankenstien when i played it though. they're not bad.

And people don't tend to like Kranks much, you should have tried it and formed your own opinion of it though.

What would Krank Inc be like today if............ just if........ Dimebag never touched any of their merchandise ??
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
The rest depends on your wallet's thickness !!

Keep the faith, baby!!
