« Pretty awful sounding »Publié le 05/18/11 à 19:56
The amp takes a LONG time to dial in a decent tone. And when I say decent, I really mean usable. That's the key word with this amp. The presence knob on this thing goes way too high, and the gain is nearly unusable at certain points. It's also kinda noisy, so you'll want to run a gate with this. Be aware of certain super positive ads with these amps as some of them may be from Krank employees. There was a big scandal on a certain forum where people found out Krank employees were writing false reviews to get people to buy these amps.
The sound is awful. Really, it's that simple. You have to play with this thing a ton to get anything decent out of that, and you're better off spending your time playing through something else. The gain on this amp is stupid in that it goes so high that you can't even fully utilize all of it. The knobs also tend to all turn too extreme. Keep the presence and whatever else knob it was fairly low, and you can get a usable tone out of it. The clean channel is also nothing to brag about.
This is one of the worst amps I ever played. It was super buzzy and sounded just like they used to describe it -- bacon sizzle. It's thin, harsh and noisy. I recommend people avoid this amp like the plague as it sounds nothing like Dime's sound and really can't do a great tone to save its life.
