Hi

im lookin to buy a crate 120 watt combo amp because my neighbor has an fxt120 and it sounds really awesome for its price, but when i was on musicians friend, it has the fxt120 and glx220 with the same features but the latter is more expensive.

here is both links to musicians friend

http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Crate-GLX212-120Watt-2x12-Combo-Amp-with-Effects?sku=487689 thats the glx

http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Crate-FXT120-Guitar-Combo-Amp-with-DSP?sku=487787 thats the fxt

if anyone can tell me why the glx is more expensive, please do

also if the glx is better, i havent heard the glx but the fxt sounds awesome (ive heard my neihgbors)

thanks

I'm not sure but the glx seems like it has an illuminated control panel and a built-in tuner
That might be the only difference.

EDIT: Ok, maybe the effects too.

It's better with no teeth, trust me. Much fewer scars on my penis now that I've switched from seniors in high school to senior citizens.

Looks like they have the same power and speakers but different effects. I guess you should choose the ones that you like best. Also compare the customer comments on each item (below the product description) and the numeric ratings (value, features and the rest).
