Kenetek 1176 vs purple MC77 for vocals?

Hey guys I'm between these two 1176 clones. I've heard the Kenetek in action and love it, but I have heard a lot of talk about how great the purple MC77 is. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with both? Which would be better for vocals?

Thanks guys!

Never heard the Kenetek, but the Purple MC77 is always on my lead vocal chain. Love that box!

Sorry to give you another option, but I really like the Mohog 1176 clone as well. More versatile than the others too since it has switchable output transformers. Just something else to consider

Havent heard the kenetek.
The purples are bright.
Not that thats bad but just depends on source.
Mohogs are awesome.
Love the ability to switch the xfmrs.
Its like a tone switch.
Very excited to try the infratronics.
Should be here today......

Did you ever get to try the infratronics? That unit's caught my eye recently.

Thanks,

Never listen to opinions regarding gear. For every 50 nobodies on Gearslutz that say a piece of gear doesn't sound good enough to cut it, I know at least one somebody who is cutting it in NYC with that piece of gear.

Thanks,

yes the infratronic is really good.
totally nails the aggression of an 1176.
more so than the purple and mohog.
dont get me wrong, i love the mohog,
but there is a certain quality of the tone to the infratronics that seemed more like a urei. perhaps, as warren was saying, its the ed anderson xfrnrs that make the difference.
i dont know nor do i care really.
it sounds friggin good
gain structure seems very familiar and like an original too.

I've been interested in the Infratronics too. I've also looked at the Revive M76. Been wondering how close overall they would compare...and the Mnats rev D.
