Yes.

It still doesn't mean it's good though. It's just a better quality piece of turd.


Just save up and get a better amp.

Those amps aren't bad for solid states, but you can do better. Much, much better.

Don't buy cheap Crates, Unless it's the powerblock/V5 tube or something.

And this is coming from someone who loves Crate High end amps.

Well I don't have money right now. If I traded, I could save up money and sell it when I get a good amp.

I don't mind my spider for playing rhythm, but when you play lead it sounds like ass.

Then get the Crate if you want harsh and overly trebly lead tones.

Well I have a tone right now that doesn't sound horrible, I just had to cut way back on treble. Is it worth my time to do this?

Save, save, save, save. Thats all I can say.



Ok, I have decided to not waste my time. It's kinda hard to save money when you are a jobless 15 year old.

yea, the crate GTX's are pretty offensive sounding amps.. the cleans are kinda wierd.. really clunky honky sounding cleans and the distortion is pretty much sheer fizz.

i'm not a tube snob by any means.. but i found my Kustom KGA65 to be a much better sounding CHEAP solid state amp.

if you use the clean channel, and a good distortion pedal for drive, I think its a better value than a cheap tube combo
