The team's opinion: It's been a while since we wanted to get our hands on a product from Krank USA! Well it's done with this Krankshaft! Behind this particular name hides a very particular effect pedal, not to be put in all hands! First thing that jumps out at you: Her look! No, but look at this Panzer. The pedal is massive, rather heavy and immediately inspires confidence: it will withstand the ravages of time. Inside hides a very clean circuit, made entirely by hand. But how does it sound? Basically, Krank is a brand of amplifiers offering Hi-gain products. We therefore expected a very sustained Overdrive. Well no ! On a Clean channel, gain fully, we are still in the area of Crunch. Yes, but a very modern Crunch, reminiscent of metal productions from the early 2000s (with a little chorus in the intro, you know). But where the pedal delivers its full potential is on the overdrive channel of a modern amp! It's simple, over the saturation of your amp is added the incisive and straight grain of Krank. We end up with an ultra-modern Ersatz of TS9 but with a particular voicing and a radically different color. Basically, this pedal will increase the potential of your amp tenfold, bringing an unusual presence and color! Yes the pedal is typed but what does it sound! Pedal offered in near new condition, with its original box. Very rare on the European market!
