    Hello talkbass!

    This is my first post on TB, still a bit nervous:bag:

    I stumbled upon quite a unique bass amp recently. The Krank D800 Dirty Tube bass head. It's a lightweight, rack mountable hybrid-tube head with some very interesting settings such as "girth" "mid punch" and "fat growl." Now, I know this is a very new amp with little knowledge existing on it, but it seems like it would make for a pretty unique bass tone, seeing that its designed just for heavy music.
    Anyways, what are your thoughts on this monster? X mas is right around the corner and my money's saved for either this or an Ampeg SVT 2 PRO.

    ....begin.

    That Krank sounds cool. I've never heard of it. You can't lose with an SVT-2 though. It's up there with the other kings.

    Between those I'd go for the 2pro. No contest.

    I don't really intend for this to become a "Krank vs. Ampeg ultimate showdown" threads, I just want to know your thoughts on the head (and don't get started on the basszilla cabs)
