It's over-the-top insanity with the warmth and clarity you expect from Krank.

5. Frantone "The Sweet" Distortion

Over the top in every way using the classic tone of germanium transistors. This is the longest sustaining and smoothest sounding all-transistor fuzztone you will ever own. I have designed many fuzztones, including the 2000 New York City Big Muff for Electro-Harmonix, so believe me when I say that this is the most extreme and finest I have ever made. It's tone is indescribable. The full bottom and crisp highs will astound you, and the endless sustain will make you cry like a baby. But don't take my word for it.. try one for yourself!
