I've heard they sound great, but they're loud. No matter what. They start loud, and get louder. Definitely not a bedroom amp.

That's what I read too, they are really loud but sound good.

One of the local bands here got one for free as an endorsement deal. It blew up on stage, and he brought it in to be serviced.

Crappiest soldiering job I've ever seen on the inside of an amp, the amp tech alomst busted a gasket when he found out they sold for what they do.

Krank has been banned from Harmony Central's review system for having their employees give glowing reviews over and over to boost hype.

Everyone who's played one on the HC Forums has said the same thing: Great clean channel, thin buzzy, and un-useable distortion channel.

Dimebag has just started endorsing them. He was dumped by Randall/Washburn's owners. He's now endorsing Dean guitars too.

i dont know about the gain channel being un-usable, i use it alot...but, its a pretty modern sounding thing, its not got your classic fat crunchy hendrix gain... its got some awesome gain sounds though, and i really dig the amp overall, its also got absurdly tight low end for riffing and all that,. The clean channel is CLEAN, turn it upto ten and you wont even hear the slightest crunch, its punchy and full, and really responsive, i use it alot, i think overall Krank make a good versatile amp, with two very different and distinctive channels, the cabs/enclosures are also built like tanks, reminiscent of MESA cabs, and sound huge. turn it up loud, cause you dont have a choice :P

If only they added a third, lower-distortion, more vintage sounding channel, I'd give up digital altogether.

Hey, I've never heard a nicer clean tone other than Line6, and that's an important factor to me. The only way I'd ever give up Line6 is if I could afford 2 or 3 amps and a bunch of pedal/rack effects, or I found a non-digital amp that was as versatile.

The reason Krank could almost do that for me is that in my current band those amps are just one channel short of everything I need so far.

Keeping a Line6 (atleast PODs) totally clean is a drag, I`ve got to use the tuner function to bypass everything to keep it from breaking up.

Yeah, micro, I was thinking- that's about as strong an endorsement as I could imagine, too.

re: line6 not liking to stay perfectly clean; my favorite clean tones have always had a slight amount of warm grit to them. I just never could come to terms with perfectly pristine clean tones...

I have no problem keeping my Line6 completely clean, at volume levels that are clearly heard standing next to a loud drumkit in a small room, with earplugs in.
