Does anybody know of a cheapish dealer of Krank amps in the UK or if not Krank, any other decnet metal amp??

I wouldn't associate the words "Krank" and "decent".

Now "Krank" and "Waste of money", that's a bit closer to reality.

I'm saving up for an Engl amp right now. Imo the "Engl Powerball" is the best amp for metal I have ever heard. Then again, I'm referring to Death Metal so I guess it depends on what genre of Metal you play.

What's bad about Kranks? I'm new to the market, so i need some advice


They are way too expensive for what you get. They are one of those companies that rely on image in order to get aspiring Metal Guitarist's money. So don't get me wrong, there are a few decent Krank amps out there... but they are WAY over-priced and you can get MUCH better for what you spend.

I'm not trying to cut him down... I'm only trying to help him out by stopping him from making, what imo, is a bad purchase. If he is really dead set on going with a Krank then that's his business, but this is how I feel.

True, tone is all preference. To each his own I guess

speaking of krank amps, they have a factory or their main office here in Arizona. They have several local bands on the artist endorsement list.
Ibanez RGT42DXFX with emg 81/85
Schecter C1-Classic
Vox AD30VT

I agree that Kranks are shit amps. I played the Krankenstein and it was lame.

If you want a metal amp I say look at ENGL or Mesa/boogie. ENGL Powerball is the best amp I've ever played through. Killer metal tones. More gain than you'll ever use. Plus it's extremely versatile and has really nice warm cleans.

DO NOT BUY KRANK!!

I would buy a Laney or an ENGL powerball for metal in the UK. Also, Bogner might be decent in their distribution.

I absolutely LOVE my Krank revolution 2X12 combo

I had it side-by-side with my Mesa triple recto, and everyone agreed the tone was more desireable out of the Krank

I actually know 2 people that sold their dual-rectos to get a Krank, so don't listen to the haters

sounds great in manchester do krank, as already suggested, as do machinehead in hitchin, north london.

be warned, imo they're terrible. You can do much better for the same price, or even less.

engl, framus, mesa, peavey, koch, cornford, soldano, vht, etc., etc., are all worth a look.

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.

I have a Krank Rev and love it.
I would'nt listen too these twats on here!!
Tone is a personal choice, if someone uses krank then thats what they want! Tell DIme you think his amp is ****, would love to see him shove a dean up your ass!!

I would avoid mesa dual recs, cos they ARE ****, IMO......Powerballs are awesome the other guitarist in my band uses one, but i dont like his tone. Mesa's are a completely overpriced. Randalls are cheap transistor rubbish.

As for dealers, soundsgreat still stock em, machinehead dont at the mo, (where i got mine) and place in frome, somerset and bideford guitars. thats it. Really hard to find em.
Make your own choice with your own ears....... Good luck!
