In [this article](http://www.guitarworld.com/dimebag-darrell-reinventing-squeal?page=0,3) from *Guitar World*, they write that Darrell collaborated in designing this amp, but was killed before the official release of it. "Dime started using a Krank Revolution stack onstage with Damageplan, but he also started collaborating with Krank amp designer Tony Dow on a new model that became known as the Krankenstein. Dime called it a “super hot-rod hell-raiser version” of the Revolution. 'I got rid of everything in my rack,' Dime said. 'Now I go straight into the Krank and let it blaze. The less shit you run through, the more pure your tone is. I always thought that I had to have my six-band EQ and my PQ4 and jack everything up to high hell. Now I plug in and let it rip.'"more
Noodles used a Krank Krankenstein amp to record "Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace" album. "And then the Dimebag Darrell Krank amp which actually sounded really good. [Laughs] I wouldn't think that a Dimebag Darrell amp would work for us at all but it really sounds really good. It's a lot more varied; not that there's anything against Dimebag, it's just different styles, you know what I'm saying? It's actually a really cool and great amp." - Noodlesmore
The versatility and durability of this amp is phenomenal and gives of that high gain metal tone good enough for... well you know ;) The dual master channel selection is an amazing feature for those ripping guitar solos. I have not played through a better amp in my opinion.
Well DIME RULES and so does this head. Looks cool, sounds amazing and is endorsed by DIME. When I spoke to the KRANK people and mentioned my serial number they said it is a very early one, one of the first sent out to a customer or to anybody for that matter.
