This is my first amp, and I've owned this for five months, and id have to say it was a good investment. It has lots of power and great-sounding, versatile tone. The 16 DSP effects are pretty cool, I especially like the flange/delay setting, however you can't control the effect parameters, just the level. Another good feature is the footswitch jack which allows you to switch channels and effects on or off. For the price its very reasonable; I love it, and considering what I've done to it it'll probably last forever. If you are looking for more options and power output I might consider looking at the Behringer V-AMP or V-tones. All in all a good product.

i bought this amp thinking it was a decent bargain with good sound and it was cheaper than a comparable Marshall. After several monthes I have realized my mistake. The clean is nice as long as you keep the output of your pickups turned down, otherwise it gets dirty, which can sound ok sometimes if thats what you want. But the dirty channel is just crap. I can't find a nice crunchy sound without losing all tone. The distorion is pretty much just muddy all over. Also, whenever i crank the volume up past 5 for more than a few minuets, the amp begins to smell like something is burning, which i assure you is a little it alarming the first few times. I will say however it is probubly about as a nice an amp as you can expect for the money, much better than a fender frontman. However this summer will be spent saving up for a good ol' Marshall halfstack or valvestate.

Crate or crap

By Semi-hollowbody

from Michigander

See all my reviews

This amp sucks...do not buy it...the cleans are muddy and no tone at all to be found...if you dont have an eq pedal get AT LEAST a 7-band eq just to make this amp workable. The built in effects are ok...The "solo" channel (distortion) is HORRIBLE...can't get a good tone to save my life...the shape control is iseless, and the lead channel has no other tone controls...worst money I ever spent...I practice with this while I save for a good amp, but I run eq pedal, noise gate, 2 overdrives and a distortion pedal just to get a a few usable tones that dont kill my motivation.

excellent amp

By ibanez1473

from Wakefield RI

this is a great amp. i recently bought this amp for christmas, and i love it. it's got pretty good dsp, and nice clean and solo channels. It also sounds way louder than a 30 watt amp. it is also great for small gigs. i definitely suggest buying this amp.

The best amp I own

By SlipknotFan112

from Burleson, TX

See all my reviews

I got this amp several months ago, and I haven't found a better one for the price. The clean and solo channels are awsome. I only think the amp should have included a footswitch to switch between the two channels. I highly recommend buying this amp.

Little Amp- Big Sound

By Spicy Mothballs

from Cincinnati, OH

I've owned several amps over the years, both tube and solid state. This little setup is my favorite yet. The DSP effects are perfect for thickening up your sound without a rat's nest of jumper cables and power cords. This little amp puts out enough sound for a jam session with real-wood drums without miking up-- for the price that ain't bad. The DSP does 99% of what I want-- a little of this and a little of that. It's a case of a device that does what you need it to do. As far as tone and warmth, these Crate amps keep getting better. This is the best sounding solid state amp I've ever played 'barre none'.

serious little amp

By bill casey

from Beulah, MI

This is a great amp for the amount. It has warmth and clean sounds and all the effects are excellent. I preamp it into a peavey decade and then add a digitec sustainer/compressor pedal or my cry-baby-wah-wah pedal and it cranks out the sound . I also sing through it with excellent results on the reverb setting. Patch it into another power amp or a P.A. system and the sky's the limit. I've been playing music for 35 years and this is the best thing around and it don't cost an arm and a leg to own. Buy it whether your a beginner or an ole pro. Crate is Good equipment.

Great starter amp for someone who's past starting

By Fireturtle5

from syosset, NY

I have owned a multitude of amps through the years, keeping them somewhat small due to living space, neighbors etc... and I keep coming back to crate. Great tone, dirty distortion, and crystal clear clean. I love em! If you are looking to keep a few dollars in the wallet but want a few watts on stage, go for a crate. This one is great because the effects are good for someone who doesn't want a rats-nest of wires and pedals, just wants the sounds. Spend the money, it's more than worth it!

Awesome

By CrateMASTA41

from Azle, TX

i had it for 2 days. I've been playing for two years and it is one of the best amps i have had. I play with a Epiphone Les Paul Special II and A Fender Stratocaster and this amp sounds great. Effects are great small, light, and it has great solo and clean channels!

Alright...

By rock_music_lover89

from Burnsville, NC

I bought this amp 2 and a half years ago. Its well built with reinforced edges and the like. Everything is quality.As for tone, the distortion is very harsh. Sitting side by side with a fender tweed amp, this amp sounds very dry and harsh. But thats to be expected a little. This amp does feel like a tube amp, but thats the only resemblance.The DSP is great. Reverbs are lush and delays are great.The Clean channel sounds plastic-y and thin. Even with reverb, this channel sounds electronic.Overall, a newcomer would love this for its price, and they wouldnt notice that the tone was dry, but an experienced user would hate it.

Nice step up for me!!

By 311thewiser

from La Porte, IN

Well I have been playing electric guitar for about 6 months now, and Started off with an olp mm1 which I really like and a fender frontman 15R practice amp. The guitar sounds good I ran it thru my dads peavey rage 15 because it sounded so much better than my fender, so i needed a new amp because the frontman distortion absolutly blows. I play hard rock and some metal, 311, velvet revolver, p.o.d type stuff. I bought this amp and it is a very good step up for me! The effects make it shine, the distortion really isnt that good but I run it thru my marshall jackhammer pedal and it sound REALLY GOOD!! For what they are selling it for WHAT A DEAL!!!

Affordable practice amp that's fun to tweak

By motorcitymusician

from Lakewood, CA

I think this fxt series from Crate is excellant for the price. You can really mold your sound and experiment with different fx without spending loads of cash on pedals. The distortion and clean sounds are good; you get what you pay for. However, you can't ask for a better practice amp for the price. The low volume sounds good and the various high and mid volumes are cool for shaping your sound.

Depends on what your going for

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Pros: good little starter amp for those that don't need anything too loud, has nice effects, distortion with typical crate tone.Cons: crates have indistinct and low end tone that isn't good for leads, this amp tends to breakup and vibrate when it's too loud, if your into metal and you want to jam with a drummer then just forget about being heard over the drums.I'll give it this much : it sounds awesome when the volume is halfway, but past that it is garbage. I hated the distortions tone so I bought a Digitech FX Pedal and it sounded awesome, but when I took it to play at a drummers house I was left dissapointed with results. Get this amp if your just starting but if you want to gig then look elsewere.

Great amp

By Mike-hu-Ea

from Middle Georgia

Got this amp a while ago and has worked great for me. It has more than enough power to be heard over a drumset and the DSP effects are awesome, except that you can only select one at a time. Overall, you get a lot more than what you pay for.

try a bigger combo

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

this is a very nice guitar amp for small jams if you want something a bit more kick try useing a crate GXLi-12 or 2-12combo at 65 watts for the 1-12or 120 watts with 2-12because you will need a more powerful amp to cut thr the drumers and i use an XL 2-12 at 120 watts with a roland BD-2 bluesdriver and a CE-5 Chorus and a little reverb to cut it up just remember that small amp are okay for small gigs like coffee houses but for the other you will need a 1-12 or 2-12 with 65 to 12o watts and tou have to remember that this is just solid state amp ...

This amp is a great practice amp. The DSP affects on it are amazing. Sure the gain isn't that good, but it's great with the affects on it. This is a great deal for an amp like this.

Good deal...

By Zephyr-iFyzk

from Virginia

I got this amp half a year ago. It was well worth the price. The only thing that could make it better is if it included a footswitch to change from clean to overdrive. The different digital sounds such as 'Touch Wah' are awesome. You can have loads of fun with the different kinds of sound. Overall, I recommend buying this amp.

Best 30 Watt I've Heard

By Make Mine Country

from Green Valley, IL

See all my reviews

Make sure you turn up the levels to get the effects to produce clearly but this is a remarkable amp at only 30 watts. The only thing I wish is they would have thrown in the 2 button footswitch. I'd recommend getting it with the amp since it makes in more user friendly. You won't be disappointed with most sounds for the price you pay. It's a good buy, IMHO.

By SGguitarist-Wjb2.

from O.C., CA

This amp has been great for me.I've had it for a little over a year and so far there have no problems with it. It is only 30 watts but it screams. I have yet to turn it up all the way. However, the only complaint I have is that the distortion sounds really muddy. When I plug in my grunge pedal it sounds awesome. I really recommend Crate.
