Sound — 10
I run an American Tele, Gibson SG Standard and Ibanez Artcore AS73 through it. I mostly play through various tube amps and keep the Crush 15 & 30 as practice amps. This has become my main amp for smaller venues. The only effect I use on it is an Electro Harmonix LPB-1 at the 12 o'clock position on the clean channel with the mids scooped and the gain and level all the way up and volume around 10-11. I was blown away at the breakup and sound I get at this level and is has that classic rock sound. It is a lot louder than I thought and plays like a tube amp almost. I'm amazed at the sound and volume I get with these settings and the better speaker. It looks a little beat up but people ask about it and how I get that sound out of it.
Overall Impression — 10
I never intended to use this for gigs but after the tone I got out of it and the fact I don't have to lug the heavy tube amps around I use it for almost everything. I haven't recorded with it yet but I run a splitter out of the end of my pedal board and stack the Crush 15 on the Crush 30 and run a line into both and that sounds really good.
Reliability & Durability — 10
Never had any problems with either Crush I have. This one was very worn and just needed a loving home and someone to take care of it. Its one of those amps that when I gig with it people give it a funny look and are in disbelief when I say I spent $25 bucks on it and threw in a $80 speaker.

someone was selling it on Craigslist for a whopping $25 so I bought it. I have the Crush 15r so I thought why not. It is a 2004 model and the grill cloth was pushed in. I fixed that and there was no other visible issues with it. I didn't like the stock speaker so I bought a Jensen 10" to put in it.
