I traded a Champ 25 SE for it straight up and I love this thing. It's tiny and it simply scorches! It's so simple and I can get a cranked sound at pretty much any volume. If you want cleans, I'd pass but, if you like some nice grit, this thing kills. I can retire my tube preamp now. It does that great cranked-amp thing, which is the only way I play, well beyond my expectations. I like it.

After being disappointed decades ago, I have avoided Crate* but I must admit that they did right by this one. It's got some beef. I tried it through my JBL 2x12 and it's a little monster. It'll do a bar easy.

* and any other EL84 amp, too. They always sounded a little washy and lacked the bottom thump of 6L6 jobs but the V15 doesn't seem to lack a strong bottom.

Remove V1 & V6. Put the 12AX7 from V1 into V6 and leave V1 empty. Try the vibrato channel.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
