Did you find this review helpful? My matchless cost me almost 3k and for the money this amp would be my first choice, if I only had 3k to spend for equip I wouuld buy the crate, a epiphone LP 56 goldtop and an epiphone firebird v and I’d still have a good grand left over. Login or Sign Up.

I’ll put money on it you wont! Get it for less at zZounds. I am pretty sure that the cabinet is made from MDF and not plywood The sockets were so tight that I even heard the solder joints creak as I tried to wiggle the tubes out.

I’ve already sold a couple fenders,marsshall,musicman and silvertone amps I owned.

Btw,it does not have the word “Crate” anywhere on the amp or the on the box that it came in. Advertise on the most comprehensive and widely viewed musicians’ website. At higher volumes and using the effects there is a vrate of noise which is the only “con” I can find for this amp.

It reminds me of an old vintage Marshall with it’s harmonic content and smooth midrange bark and bite. I own it and would buy another.

The clean channel is very crisp and produces a very full tone with a great bottom end. The heavy leather padded handle is another nice touch.

The high gain tones are rather articulate in nature and are more smooth than nasty. You will regret if you don’t at least try it out. It sounds like a marshall plexi yet it has almost a mesa balls yet like a xox ac or almost like my matchless not quite but very close. My friend brought over his Mesa, I also used an A-B box side by side at lower volumes with my line 6 vetta and compared sounds and the crate sounds better than both, I called my friend who has a matchless c from and we put them side by side and this v sounded just as good but had more balls when the gain was cranked, the matchless had a bit more magic an some rnages but damn this crate is incredible, I always thought crate amps were 2nd rate and a cheap alternitive to much more expensive amps and I never even considered buying a”CRATE” even at a super bargain price but I am totlly blown away, the dynamics are excellent, the sound can please the most descriminating players from,blues,jazz and hardcore rock.


I have boxed up all of my other effects and now just use the amp!

Why fight traffic and pushy salesmen when we’ll bring your gear straight to your home, free of charge? The crate is cleaner,twangier,louder,ballsier and can be dirtier than the fender.

You’ll still get the trustworthy service you’ve come to expect from zZounds, without paying more for your gear! The distortion channel has a very wide range of tones from a very good bluesy overdrive to marshall crunch and heavier. No hidden charges or hassles on returns. I have to say if you think crate is crap like I did, try a v series and you will pee your pants I am still amazed at what a great verstille sound that the v series gives.

No application to mail or fax, no bills to pay. There is also a series effects loop,if more flexibilty is needed. It has a number of features that make a really solid tube amp even better. Find a better price after buying from us?

All we need is the first craet up front and the rest in easy monthly payments! See all Tube Amps. I’m still keeping my matchless and my line 6 vetta though but this is my new “gig” amp. The black material with real chrome emblem up front and the nice effects knobs are cool looking.
