    Guys who like Krank amps don't like the Chadwick because it is Marshall-y and not metal enough.



    Guys who like Marshall-y amps that aren't metal don't like the Chadwick because it says Krank.



    If you fall into neither of those camps, this amp is awesome for the prices they go for now!

    I have the single channel version, and it flat out rocks once you get the volume up. It is pretty fizzy at low volumes, but it's only a 50 watt amp so it's not at unmanageable volumes that it really comes alive.

    Very unique controls, the drive knob controls the saturation of the preamp, and the envelope knob controls how hard the phase inverter is run.



    I don't know if they all do, but mine came with Mercury Magnetics transformers to boot.

      I use to have one. Its a decent amp but none seems to give it a chance because it says 'krank'..



      I remember the clean Chan being very pristine and really nice sounding..

      The drive Chan is basically jcm800ish but with a little different flavor..



      Its also super light and there isn't tons of gain..

      But if you boost it with a screamer you are basically 80's metal territory.

        I used to have one. Serial number 13. It kicked ass. Basically a 2204 but a touch tighter and a tad more gain.



        Edit: I should add that this was the earlier JMP-style single channel Chadwick, before they added the clean channel.

            My Krank Nineteen80 head does the modded '80s Marshall thing extremely well,though it doesn't have quite as much preamp gain on tap as my RevPro Jr. head.I believe that the Nineteen80 was Krank's attemp at adding a bit to the preamp gain of the Chadwick,though I might be wrong about such.

                A real sleeper amp. You could steal one if you wait it out, though.

                        Chadwicks are sweet. My fav Krank is the Rev+ but the Chadwick is a close second. It can cover just about anything. Plenty of gain on tap for me.
