Hi, i am buying a Crate V18-112 and i was wondering how well will it do Metal and Rock (from Ac/Dc to Metallica to Led Zeppelin)? If not, what pedal(s) can i buy for it so to make it more versatile or what other amp in the $300 dollar area can i buy instead of the V18? My guitar is a Fender Strat with a Red Lace Sensor on the bridge.

thank

You can get a 50w All Tube Valve King for 399.

I say get a Blackheart 15w, not the Little Giant, but the newer one. You should probably get an overdrive pedal like the Zakk Wylde OD for your Metallica and harder sounds.

for 300 hundred bucks, you wont get too much outa them but i do here good things about the crates, although you will most likely need some OD or dist pedal...

but.. DID YOU KNOW that the 50 watt version is the same price as the 212 18watt version on musiciansfriend? Although you might not want that kinda loudness lol

You should be able to find a Peavey Windsor Studio combo for $350. On Musician's Friend they have one for $347 or so.

I have the same amp. It does blues and jazz really well, and you can get some good hard rock, but you would need a pedal to get some metal tone
