How About a V-Series Thread?

Well, there's a Valveking, Peavey Classic, and Laney thread...


How about a V Series/Crate thread? Let's talk about the all tube amps (not the SS ones )

I have a V33 head and Palomino V212 cab. Clips are in the profile.

Post pics, clips, tips, or whatever.

^ I haven't played a BV, but the 60 and the 120 seem nice. There are a few folks on HCAF that have them, as well as a few for sale on Craigslist, but they wouldn't fit my style.

Hey, are there any tube Crates with an effects loop that aren't more than 30 watts?

Same here, shame Crate have been so fecking useless not to release them in the UK market. Replacing them with the overpriced Blackhearts... meh

I'd buy a V18 just to mod the crap out of it if they released it in the UK for the same price.

The V18 has no effects loop
a) How brutal can the V33 get?
b) Is it possible to get some power-tube saturation at moderate levels?

No point asking if you intend to buy really, it's almost impossible to get them outside of the US.

Thought it did.

a) It's not a metal amp by any means at all. It sounds a bit the bastard son of a Vox AC30 and a Marshall of some sort.

b) Depends on what "moderate" is. I like using channel 2 with the gain down and the level up. It's quieter than the clean channel, which is bright as all hell.

Nowai.

Do they only make the V33 in 212?

They make a killer head version.

Though I want to take the V33 off of the grille.

Haven't tried to get metal from it.

To me, it gets fizzy if you dime the gain.

What kind of stuff are we talkin here? It doesn't really have the voicing for modern metal type stuff.

Also: In Russia, don't you have Sovtek amps, and Redbears? I'd much rather have one of those.

Sovteks and RedBears are hard to find, plus they're loud.
Basically, I'm looking at a nice tube amp with an effects loop, which will have enough gain for this - (the solo at about 2:20), so Crate is one of the amps I might get.
I nearly don't play metal, but still, an amp that can do not only rock, but metal too (Metallica-heavy, nothing over-the-top-extreme) would be nice.

It can do that.

But the V33 is very loud, just so you know.
