    I just picked this up out of curiosity, and despite not liking it before, I'm actually really digging what you did to this, Andy!

    Any details? Did you reamp the guitars as usual?

    Andy, You seem to be the only one who can make them sound ok. I've seen a couple live and i'm still un-impressed

    Anyone know what was used on Midian and Damnation And A Day?

    It sounds like just 2 tracks to me - wouldn't make sense to have more than one amp.

    Where She Wept, I agree. I tried the Revolution and Krankenstein a couple of times each over a 2 week period (eg.; fresh ears) with a variety of Cabs (Krank Rev, Mesa Trad Rect, Line6, Laney.) in 2 different stores (at quite loud volumes for a store test)and each time was unimpressed with the Krankenstein. It had a thinner and much buzzier (is that a word) sound than the Revolution. After all the hype, I was sure the Krankenstein was going to be the one I bought, but it wasn't. I went with the Rev and Mesa cab.

    I understand that I am just a hobbyist/hack and not a Pro Musician or producer but I don't get it. All the bands seem to be changing to the Krankenstein from the Revo and Andy seems to be using it for a heap of releases so there is obviously a reason for that and I am very curious to know a Pro's opinion of the benefits of the 'stein over the Rev. Andy's work on Arch Enemy's DVD is AMAZING, so there is some proof, but that sounds quite different than a Live 'stein to my n00b ears. The Manchester Academy songs on the Arch Enemy DVD sound much closer to a Live sound that I have heard from a Krankenstein.

    I think Andy is some kind of wizard:lol: .

    DISCLAIMER: Sorry to satisfied Krankenstein owners, I do not mean to bag your amp, I was just disappointed that I didn't like it. I really wanted to, I tried, it's just that the Rev sounded better to my ears. I do feel that I am definitley missing out on something though given the vast majority of 'stein users. I just wish I knew what it was.:headbang:

    Krank's stock tubes really aren't the best - there's a lot that can be fine-tuned and improved with the right tubes. How many stock Mesa's sound good right off the bat?

    I bet Andy can get killer tone even out of my smelly farts....
    Andy is the man! he always had/has killer tones!
    I think is due to the man himself.
    Never tried a Krankenstein but I have to say: push those amps to the top, maybe it will sound good.
    I heard a lot people that can't get a decent tone out of a 5150 just because they play it in a local store with post gain on 2 (2 for a store is too much I think), so they're bitching my favorite amp while they didn't really have a good test on the amp.

    +1. Re-tubing my Dual Rec was the best thing that ever happened to that head. Did you swap out the Krank tubes or where they just stock?
