CR112 Review

manufacturer: Crate date: 06/11/2005 category: Guitar Amplifiers
The amp is very versitle, because clean and od chanels are almost perfect. Gain a little cloudy, and theres something wierd with the clean. It has 2 chanels, clean and overdrive. The only effect it has is is bright, and thats the only way you can play and have it sound good, for any style.

Features: This amp is very old, like 25 years, and its used. The amp is very versitle, because clean and od chanels are almost perfect. Gain a little cloudy, and theres something wierd with the clean. It sounds weird, but cant describe it. It has 2 chanels, clean and overdrive. The only effect it has is is bright, and thats the only way you can play and have it sound good, for any style. // 6

Sound: It would suit metal good, regualar rock none so good, as you lower the distort, it gets very cloudy, toneless, and that weird sound that you get with clean. It won't hum unless you either have your guitar turned up all the way, and not close to the amp. On clean it distorts a bit around volume 8. // 6

Reliability & Durability: Durablity? Yes. I wouldn't depend on it on a gig, without a backup. I heard from the guy its been repaired twice. But it's a very solid frame. You can stand on it, kik it, and not damage it. // 8

Overall Impression: I play rock/metal/punk. It's not very good for punk, becasue of the distortion. If it was stolen, I wouldn't buy a new one. Becasue I don't think you can. It's 25 years old. I love the distortion for my metal, and I don't like the clean channel. // 6
