What do you play? If you're more rock orientated, I'd go with the Crate. Even if you play a little bit of metal, I'd still go with the crate. If you're playing more modern metal music, I'd go with the B-52.

what kind of music do you play? just looking at those choices i'd personally go with the crate for some classic rockish sounds. the b52 is known as a poor man's mesa if you want more higher gain sounds.

No to the Frontman. The B-52 if you play modern metal, and Crate if you play Rock (Zeppelin, GnR, Black Sabbath,)

dont get the front man. the palomino is great and the b52 will be good for metal. but best all around would be the palomino

No. Just no.
Anyway I'd agree with the majority here and say the Crate Palomino. It can get a good solid crunch going through it, I quite like it's hard blues tone (SRV - House Is Rockin type of thing) aswell as what the others have said with the classic rock sound.
By the way i'm not sure why people are saying "if you play metal then this" he said in the first post he doesn't do metal or shred.

A Palomino would be great for blues to alternative and maybe decent for metal, and the B-52 can do pretty much anything else.

Well it looks like most of the votes are for the V32 Palomino used. I do like the Fat creamy sound you can get out of it and as I am Old I tend to play of Lot of Blues
