All I have to say is wow. I've played Crates in the past, and this thing doesn't even sound like a Crate. This thing, this monster, sounds like a roaring lion of immense power! I play mostly modern metal and hardcore, and this thing delivers. I would gladly pay twice the price for this thing. There are so many tonal options with the distortion, you can make it sound similar to a jcm800 sound, a pantera sound, or even make this thing sound like a krank or mesa. The distortion isn't that digital crappy-sounding junk, its creamy, but its chunky and full of gain. Think twice about your Mesa or Krank or Marshall you have your eye on. BUY THIS NOW!!

I've had this amp for over a year now. I use a digitech pedal board with it. The problem I have with it is when the volume is loud there is this high pitch that no matter how you tweek it you can't get rid of. But thats the solid state for ya. Everytime I get on a tube amp the problem isn't there. Other than that, good amp.

The Only Head You Will EVER Need

By GuitarMan98

from Indiana

See all my reviews

This head is nothing less than Amazing. I bought this Crate about 2 years ago and I am still trying all the different combinations of sounds that come from this monster.The head has 350 Watts which is more than enough for anyone. I use it with my Black Vodoo 200W Cab, and I never have to even use the full 200W, even in shows! The clean channel is so pure, you will get nothing but clean tone when played. I use a Schecter Omen 6 (blue) guitar with my amp set up. My guitar is an average quality guitar, and I still can keep it as clean as I want.The two distortion channels on this beast are insane. I personally only use the "solo" channel because it is heaver then the other distorion channel called "rythem" You will never need to buy distortion pedals again. Hook this baby up to a mixer and you can even add more high, med. , and low effects to your sound.I would definitly reconmend this head for guitarist that are looking for a pure sound on the clean channel and anythin from a light to heavy rock sound out of the distortions!! Guitarist that are looking for sounds from todays hard rock / heavy metal bands will fall in love with this head. This head is not for the light hearted..... lol.

The Sonic Monster!!!

By amonnan2

from Atlanta.GA

I've owned the Shockwave for 1 1/2 years and it is a superb piece of equipment. I've had Marshall and Peavey tube amps that costed me twice as much, yet this amp competes with them on every level. I play rock,blues,funk,Santana and fusions without any problems. Why did they quit making these? If you can buy one get one. You really won't miss the tubes and the matching cabinet is loaded with Celestions!

Amazing

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I just got this amp a little while ago and it's absolutely amazing. i will never understand for the life of me why they were discontinued. I've played all sorts of amps, marshall,peavey, whatever you name it and this beast beast them all out in my opinion. great for metal but i've used it for plenty of other styles (blues, lighter rock, etc). this thing competes with my buds mesa dual rectifier even. truely the best amp for its price range. if you can find one, do not hesitate, get it

Good Amp

By Gary-u7ovq

from Colorado

I've owned this amp for probably over a year now and for sure it is a real good amp for the price. It's plently loud, I played all sizes of shows with this amp and it didn't let me down. You can also get a lot of good tones out of it. The clean channel was really good, 2nd channel I didn't really care for, third channel was excellent because you could make it sound heavy with all the gain. Plus the reverb is way sick. Very good amp, probably would have to say one of the best solid state I've heard. It still doesn't compare with my mesa's sound though.

Buy this one

I have been playing through Crate for 16 years, and they have never left me down. The Shockwave is no different, it is so clear on all sides of the volumes from low to high. You can feel your leg hairs vibarate. Trust me, you don't have to play through a expensive stack to sound good, just be good....and crate will do the rest. And you can still afford gas for the rest of the week.

Great Amp/Power Rating

By Humancapo

from Cambridge, UK

This amp delivers every watt promised. The GT3500H puts out 350 watts into a 2 ohm load (two 4 ohm cabs give you a 2 ohm load). With a 4 ohm load it puts out 220 watts, 8 ohms 160 watts and at 16 ohms it gives you 100 watts. Most players know better than to run a solid state amp at 16 ohms because you waste power. Something to consider when choosing a cab for this beast. The bottom line is there is ton's of tone and power.

Nasty good

By Great-Ytsry

from Boston

This amp is great, it's got all the power you can imagine, rattles windows and shakes the floor at 3, the tone is great, the clean channel is crisp, the rythem channel has great tone, though not enough crunch for anyone whos into the heavier stuff like myself. For that you have to go to the solo channel, and you get perfect crunch, the solo channel uses the lows highs and mids of the rythem channel and you can get a perfect metallica sounding crunch, with tons of other variants as well. This is perfect for anyone who is really into guitar and wants to step it up a bit. I've played marshalls, line 6's, peavey's, all of them, and this gives you a perfect sound for a great price.

Great

I run a vintage Gibson SG through this head and then through a Diezel 4x12 and it sounds great. The knob's effects could be labeled a bit better so that they tell what they do, but it's all good if you know what you're doing. great beginner.

Great Guitar Head

By MetalMan-8.z2C

from Ft. Jones, CA

See all my reviews

The clean channel on this Amp Head sounds better than the clean channel on Crate Blue Voodoo. The jump from Rhythm to Solo is just enough to push it over the top. For the price and the not-so-distinct sound of a Solid State amp head. This amp rocks. I play mine through a Carvin SC412B 400W cab. I replaced the 4 Celestion Seventy-80 speakers with 4 Eminence Red Coat Man-O-War 100W speakers. This combination destroys other similar half-stacks, in this price range and beyond.

Wow

By yes its my sn 09

from randolph, nj

This amp is nothing more than a beast. It is so loud and has a wide range of sounds. with the turn of 3 simple knobs you can get the crunch sound of a marshall jcm to a mesa trip rec. the clean channel is christal clear and perfect. its insane. if your into the crate sound and your settling down for an amp this is it. i promise.

Amazing amp but...

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I got this amp 2 years ago, and it is an amazing amp however there is one small problem, the screws on the pedal. Also I heard that most of the pedals from crate have this problem and I know four other crate users that had to send them back because of the screws and other problems. Other then that this is the second amp I've played, after Vetta 2 (line 6).

last amp youll ever need

By Mohawk Ben

from portland, OR

See all my reviews

This amp is amazing for being solid state at such a high wattage. I've owned other amps like Marshalls and Peavey but even the top tube circuitry can't give you that pure sound. This is is not good for those looking for warm classic sounds but the eq's are so sensitive that this amp will give you your own sound. Good pure grind is what it comes down to just pure grind.

Amazing

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This amp is rockin'. I played this beauty at Guitar Center. I was in love with the clean channel it sounded sick with the reverb way up. The rhythym channel sounded ok a little gainy but it might just been the setting I had it on. But overall the amp was loud and proud all the way 'round. If I had the mula I'd go and buy 1 right now and so should you.

Awesome!!!!!!

By BTSGuitar06

from North Carolina

See all my reviews

The clean channel on this sounded awesome, and the reverb was a nice touch. The Rhythm channel, while lacking a "heavy metal" tone, was good for all forms of rock. The solo channel was where this monster shined though. It has awesome metal tone, with TONS of distortion, but perfect clarity. I recommend this amp to anybody who doesn't have the money for a Marshall/Mesa/Krank, or any other "high end" amp. This thing can get LOUD too!

By bushido_1973

from Motor City Detriot, Michigan

Other than wow! I've played the XXX and this blows it out of the water, with a BIG shockwave! Tons of good grab ya by the short hairs tone. I play along my fellow guitarist with a custom Splawn, and it keeps up perfect. Great amp and the last one I will buy.
