After a week or so of anticipation, my Crate V18 came, i meant to take more pictures of the box opening process but i forgot, oh well.





So far i love this amp so much, my previous amp was a solid state Raven amp, and this is a huge upgrade, plus it cost the same amount. The cleans are very nice, this amp is VERY bass heavy, when i play on the clean channel i have to dial it back a bit, aside from that it sounds great. When i boost it with the blues driver i can get Metallica-esque distortion, without it, the amp sounds great for AC/DC style rock. If you're looking at these Crates now that they're on sale, i really do recommend getting one, even if you want to play HEAVY stuff you can get a metal muff or a similar pedal (which im planning on doing)

All in all, i feel this was a worthwhile purchase, i dont see myself upgrading to another amp in the near future (unless i come across $1000 and can buy a 6505..)

Lol, if you think that's bad, just wait till I post pics of my amp in my room

5 years of my mom yelling at me to clean it up should describe it enough

EDIT : i would suggest you to take the seemingly open bottle with whatever the **** is inside of it off of your amp..

i drank that iced tea about 5 seconds after i took the picture, infact i put it down to take the picture, then finished it

as for sound clips, cant be done tonight, i cant turn my amp up to a reasonable volume since its late enough my neighbors would complain (im in a condo). For those of you who still care tomarrow ill have them up on my profile

Congrats, I just got my V33 a few days ago.

I love the cleans, I just wanna know who thought 1 EQ for 2 channels was a good idea.
But for the price, I really can't complain.

All I need now is a footswitch and an OD.


and maybe an eq... and maybe a wah... and a delay... and a new guitar...
