Blackheart, palomino, V series, blue voodoo if these are stamped on your amp sign in and tell what you think of the amp. Pics are a nice plus but don't go crazy.(keep them small and don't post too many)

Have fun, this is for people who are looking to buy crate amps, want to ask about crate tube amps or for people with crate amps who like to talk about their amp.


Personally, I own a crate 15w palomino. I've had it for ~2 years and it's never failed me. It is vintage voiced then will get up to a marshall type of distortion when you crank it. It will accept most pedals well and is quite reliable.

I have a Crate V18 112, had it for about 3 months and love it. It takes pedals well and gets that nice crunchy distortion when cranked, but there's no way it will do metal without a pedal. It's perfect for classic rock though. I also love how simple it is, a 3 band EQ, master vol., reverb, and gain are all I need.

I've got a Blue voodoo 50 head with 2 8ohm Celestion Vintage 30 enclosures. All I'll ever need. Smokin' hot blues and hard/classic rock amp. I play a lot of slide and this amp is the shiznit. I got it off a jonesin' junkie for next to nothing. I've got pics on my profile.
Scarred for life!

This is exactly what I was going to say...only I have the 212 version. Very cool amps for the price.
