Their parent company does water quality?
Where did you see that statement?
Water filters and what not, apparently.
Where did you see the statement about Krank closing?
Would really like to know where this news came from. It does sound resonable, since Krank doesn't seem to sell that well.
EDIT: Found some other threads.
I thought these guys had closed up shop at least once before, maybe around 2005. Hmmm.....
Their website doesn't say anything about it and I can't seem to find a FB page for them either.
im not really surprised, amps weren't really that impressive. love the krank cabs though.
Didn't they close down 2 years ago too?
I knew a dude who had a Rev 1 head and cab and could make it sound incredible. But he was the only one.
+1 on loving the cabs. Excellent construction. I'm glad they have an exit strategy that includes honouring the warranties.
Interesting that the ad banner on this page is offering me a salt-free water softening system starting at $1345.
With all the e-h8 these got, I'm not surprised.
Too bad, the amps were actually pretty solid sounding and the guys who worked there were nice as hell when I checked them out.
Maybe shouldn't have gone "endorsement crazy"
Still, sad thing.
Kind of a cautionary tale. Their amps could sound pretty good (obviously no amp is for everyone) and were inexpensive. What seemed to get them (at least on internet forums) was backlash to very poor marketing. Would have been better to rest on the merits of their amps, but then maybe no as many people would have heard of them.
Weren't reviews of their amps banned on Harmony Central because they had employees fake good reviews?
Doesn't really surprise me. Krank amps were fine, but with other amps on the market with a better price and newer technology.
Yep.. Krank employees posted a bunch of phony positive reviews over there.
I own a Rev 1 combo, and despite starting a thread just this week saying that I was sick of it, I have to say its sounded awesome since day one. I've since decided to keep it since a few hours of fiddling with EQ and stuff was enough to satiate my urge for a different tone and renew my love for its sheer brutality. Krank were never the most sophisticated amps, I've played a few, they have a kind of back door engineering that seems rudimentary but it works. It's the sawn off shotgun of amps. Yes, they aren't for everyone, but hell, name an amp that is. I for one will be keeping mine and will be very sad to see the brand die.
I also remember them getting a lot of flack about this:
Krank makes a statement about Michael Amott and Ra... - Harmony Central
I have a Rev1 and I think its great for lower gain rock and thrash. Cleans sound pretty good too.
That was posted here...
