Designed by Tony Krank, Krank Amplification made guitar amplifiers in the United States beginning in 2003. All products were made in the USA, at the factory and world headquarters, located in Tempe and later Chandler, Arizona.

In late 2013, it was announced that Tony Krank had regained the Krank brand, and would rename the company to Revolution Amplification.
