Alright I need your opinion(s). for pure tone, smoooth, creamy, buttery distortion and warm clean channel which krank would be better
a) Revolution
b) Krankenstein

i don't use that much gain but normally i would need a distortion pedal and i don';t want
one so take that into account. Thanks.

I hear a LOT of bad things abotu Kranks for what you pay... I like ENGLs personally... Good cleans... Awesome distortion

Cmogi10 says that Krank=Krap. I've never tried them, but I'd like to hear his opinion on them.

yeah i know the sound i'm looking for and i'm going to try other models but i don't really want to try the revolution and krankenstein since i'm trying shitloads of other amps. (too many amps to try i only have an hour at the GC)

I've played both, unless you want a super modern tone and nothing else, look elsewhere. The Rev. or Krankenstein is far from smooth and buttery, they are both very, VERY rough, raw, aggressive sounding amps.

For a smooth, liquidy lead tone, look at a Mesa Recto, as smooth liquidy tones are all they are good for IMHO. They can have pretty good cleans too.

assuming you and I use the same words for describing tone, I can't think of an amp worse than either of those kranks for reproducing those tones.

what's your budget?

I wouldn't call a recto smooth and liquidy either, but that's personal preference, obviously.

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.

You could look into a Peavey JSX. Amazing cleans, amazing crunch, amazing lead. Try it out.

kranks have an awesome raw agressive sound, but they are miles away from smooth and buttery, and they are a little too expensive for what they are, id look elsewhere.

I've played a Krankenstein...
Needless to say it sounded like a solid state on "crank"...
It was tinnier than a JCM900 and its cleans were worse than a 15 watt Crate starter amp...

Kranks are overrated try a Peavey JSX, Carvin V3 or Mesa Dual Rectifier
Epiphone Custom 1966 SG w/EMG 85(B)
Epiphone Les Paul
Peavey Valveking
Boss SD-1 Overdrive; NS-2
Fender Tuner

If you like really sludgy, muddy, thick distortion, then get a Krank.
If you like any tight overdrive/cleans/good solo tones/anything except sludge-slinging metal then don't get a Krank.
Washburn HM Idol w/ SD JB in bridge > Ibanez Weeping Demon > Korg Pitchblack > Digitech Bad Monkey > Boss NS-2 > Boss DD-6 > Egnater Renegade > Splawn 2x12 w/ Weber Sig12Bs

you need to be careful with the engls as some are smoother than others. I'd say screamer/blackmore/savage for smoothness.

Some of the engls are mega-metal like the kranks, they just do it a heck of a lot better, and with better versatility.
