After spending loads of money this past year on vinage amps and guitars. My wife was getting really pissed at all my spending. As I looked at all my equipment, like God, I said: "This is good. Then the other day someone asked me what kind of half stack I had. It dawned on me. I had bought the Fender Twin Rever Delux and Fender Hot Rod Delux, (both are great amps), but I had no half stack. Going back to the boss of the house (my wife). I promised she could get something if I could just add one more item to my music. Being on a budget there was no point in me looking at a Marshall, and the new less expensive model of Marshall really sucks. Then a sales person told me about this new Crate GLX1200HS. I looked at the reviews on this web-site, and just about all were good. So, I go and get this Crate, bring it home and hook it up. WOW! This thing blew me away on the sound quality. Keep in mind that my Fender tube amps don't get any better on clean. This Crate has effects (I don't use those because I use pedals), three chanels-Solo, Rhythm, and Clean. When it says clean, this amp is clean. I steped on my Screamin Blues pedal, and the DS-1 distortion,you medal players will love the dirty sounds this puts out. Then I tried the delay and Chorus. This amp sounded great on any pedal. The 4X12 cabniet is only 54lbs, the amp head 29lbs. The only thing I would reccomend is a noise gate ran through your loop on the back of the amp. Crate seems to hiss more than other amps. I could keep on going but I won't. If your short on money, play at mid size places, BUY THIS AMP, YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY. It is great looking also. No it's not a high priced Marshall, but the people listening want know the difference. Only true music geeks would hassle you. I guess I am just not that geeky and I have played for 40 years.

I wanted a decent amp that was big enough to get extremely loud and that had dual channel distortion. I went ahead and bought this amp without really testing it out and found it to be a real piece of shit. Basically what happens is if you turn the dual distortion on, and try to turn your amp up loud, it has a very bad bass distorted sound. I know its not my guitar, because I spent 2 grand on it. I highly recommend you not buy this amp, unless you are playing at a sane level.

Theres no doubt about it. This is the best amp for the price. I bought this amp for Christmas and I LOVE IT. The sound is crisp, the solo channel SCREAMS and is great for metal, and I love the built in tuner and DSP effects. There is a bit of fuz when you turn it up REALLY loud but thats ok. If you are on a tight budget and are looking , BUY THIS AMP, YOU WONT REGRET IT!
This amp is THE best for the money, there is no second guessing it. The crunch that it provides is some of the best I've ever heard, and the clean channel is just as good. The only complaint is the onboard effects, they aren't very versatile, but the reverb on it is GREAT, and it more than makes up for it. However, the normal dirty channel doesn't have too much gain, so I pretty much just use the boost channel for all my distorted needs. Great amp, best for the money, GET IT.
I just received this amp and have'nt stop playing with it yet. It has all the effects you could want, high gain, which I like and an awesome low end crunch on the rhythm setting. This is my first half stack and I have no regrets as of yet. Great value and price. This one goes to eleven
This amp is simply amazing, and is definatly worth what you pay for it. The footswitch is great and gives very easy access. The effects added into the amp are completly mind blowing. The Rhythmn channel is excellent with everything you throw at it. With the overdrive channel going it shows you what this amp is really made of. And the clean channel. All I can say is WOW. This is the crispest and cleanest sound I have heard. This amp is awesome and is a great buy.
This amp rocks! i just recently got it and it's crazy. the distortion is huge and the stack looks awesome! this is my first stack and i suggest it for anyone looking at a stack that doesn't want to deal with a tube amp.
I have a Fender Deluxe 90 DSP combo (which I just love! - see review), and a Marshall MG 30 DFX combo (which is way overpriced - see review), but this is the amp I use to get back at my neighbors! I tried the Marshall MG 100 HDFX 1/2 stack, but I brought this baby home instead, and I'm glad I did! It cost a little more, but it has much better features, it sounds great, and seems very well made. It looks really cool too! (sorry Marshall). I have the slant cab, but I'm going to pick up a straight cab soon because my neighbors deserve nothing but the best!(Grin).
This was not a very good amp. It might sound good to you if you have only been play 5 or 6 years. Built in effects were useless, the tuner wasnt acurate enough. The who foot switch config was confusing. It sounded like a big fuzz box... Sound is very 1 dimentional... Meaning you have to stand right in line with it to hear it.
I've been playing a lot of rock/hard rock/heavy metal for quite a few years now, and I've played through an insane combination of gear. But I have to say, that for the size and price of this amp, you get a LOT more than you pay for. I've always been a fan of Crate and their distortions and stacks. In my opinion the rate higher than any other brand in clarity, especially at high volumes. The biggest arguement I hear on here is regarding the volume. All you need to do to fix that is pop new speakers into the cab or get another cab. This sucker will do what you need it to.
I first played this amp at guitar center. it totally impressed me!!! the distortion on this is very good. when i start play at first I thought the distortion is on 10 but it is on 3. it kicked my fender twin's rear on distortion.
Ive had it for like week and its gonna be fun to gig with, but with some marshall cabs its sounds so much better.
