Overview

The 50W Jr. version of Dimebag Darrell's mighty Krankenstein+ amp is one of the most asked for products by Krank amp users, and this mini version certainly captures its big brother's tone. Using the same tone circuit that was developed with Dime, the Krankenstein Jr. tube amp head offers all of his signature sound at lower wattages. For the home or studio, it's a great choice for high-gain sound at lower volumes, and powerful enough for a club gig. The Krankenstein Jr. head features include a 3-band EQ, parametric mid-sweep, gain, footswitchable Dime and Kleen channels, tube driven active effects loop, Ohm selector and voltage selector for worldwide use.

Krank amplifiers have been gracing stages of all sizes around the world since 2003. Users include a who's who of music heavyweights such as Dimebag Darrell, Metallica, Fall Out Boy, Toby Keith, Shadows Fall, The Offspring, Blue October, and so many more, all being certifiable Krank addicts.

Incredible.

By Rex Bachstein

from Indianapolis, IN

I ordered this through Guitar Center. I ordered the "full" stack (with the 2 12's.) Had to have the head special ordered through Krank and it took quite a while because they are backlogged. This is my first tube amp and it is beautiful. Very well made, looks professional and great. THIS AMP IS EXTREMELY LOUD. I'm probably going to have to buy a power attenuator to be able to practice with this in my room because Master at 1 is loud, 3 is the neighbors are knocking, and 5+ is the cops getting called. I would put this up against just about any 100 watt amp-cab or combo. The Krankenstein jr is so loud that I have no doubts that I have the wattage and volume to play large clubs. With the Sweep knob there is a multitude of tones you can get out of this amp. I've had mine for a few days and I'm still trying to dial in a tone that I am satisifed with, but it's there. With the sweep turned all the way up you can get that brittle Randy Rhoads style sound, with it all the way off it sounds like Kerry King in Slayer. Very versatile, I bet I could dial in some awesome blues tones if I wanted to. The Stein channel ("Distortion") is loud, crisp, and has plenty of gain (or even a lack thereof) to get whatever tone you want. The Kleen channel is warm and tight. I highly recommend this amp.
