How am I supposed to know where to tell you to go, I don't know where you live. But if your thinking of buying an amp based on what people on UG say it sounds like, then you shouldn't be putting thousands down on something like this.

I quite dislike what I have heard from most Krank amps.

All of the reviews say they are so good, but when the test it, even with high-end gear, they just sound so bad!

They are decent amps, not quite worth what they ask for 'em IMHO. They are great for modern metal and not much else, tho the Rev. did have a pretty good clean channel.

Yah.. same here..
the Krankenstien sounded like a muddy SS amp IMO..

but I have yet to play the Revolution...


I also heard the only way you can get great tone out of them is going into a studio, cranking them, and then compressing the signal a shitload....

The Revolution is worth every penny.
If you play straight up, high gain, high intensity metal, this is it. The cleans with some verb or chorus would sound great too.

The Krankenstein if worth about 500 bucks, give or take.

The Chadwick, from what I hear, is excellent for classic rock, and doesn't even come close to metal as far as gain goes.

The Chadwick I played seemed to be voiced WAY to dark to pull of convincing classic rock, may have just been the circumstances tho. None-the-less, I probably wouldn't turn to a Krank for a workhorse classic rock amp.

Revolution head sounds nice if you are looking for high gain metal!
The cleans are ok, not great.

THe problem is that the Krank price is just too high for the sound. I think the Rev one head sounds really nice for about $1000 but for $1600 its not quite as good a deal.
