Went to a gig on saturday, and the bands used the amps listed in the title of this thread.
I have come to the conclusion:
Krank sound like ass. Fact.
And the guitarist from Panic Cell was using a Framus full stack (ie: head & 2x 4x12" cabs) which was total overkill considering that this was on Floor 3 of the Marquee in Leister Square (for those that don't know, it's like a small club in that room)
It sounded really nice, although the clean channel was set too high.
So, to conclude:
Yes, it's true that Krank sounds like ass. And ESP guitars with active EMG's kick ass.
ESP EC-II -> Jim Dunlop Dimewah From Hell -> Boss NS-2 w/ Maxon OD-808 in the loop -> Bugera 333XL head w/ Boss CH-1 & Line 6 Echo Park in the loop -> Marshall JCM-800 cab.
Marshall JCM-900 MkII 2100 100w head
Peavey Transtube 1x12" Combo
