Not as Advertised

Does not have casters. Does not have tilt back legs. Inputs are 1 mono and 1 stereo. Bright, less bass than you would expect from a closed back 212. Looks very good, good fit and finish. Projects very well - will be louder in the audience than on stage. Almost a woody Celestion tone - almost.


A very pleased musician!

I own 2 JCM 1960 cabs. They sound great but are not fun to move around. I guess I'm tired of gear humping for low paying gigs! Don't get me wrong I'm not doing it for the money. The audience doesn't care what gear your using as long as it sounds good. This has got to be the lightest cab I've found. Perfect for a quick setup and tear down! Great punchy feel to the cabs and a solid build. I happen to like the sound of the speakers. I use a les Paul custom into a Marshall JCM 2000 with 2 of these crate speakers. If you have a quality head with a good guitar, these cabinets will deliver and you won't go broke doing it. Probably the best deal I've come across for a cab. Just do yourself a favor and check the speaker mounting screws for tightness. Sometimes they miss that. I took both mine apart to examen the inside. They did a good job. Buy some casters for them if you want. Don't gripe about it. You couldn't build a decent cab for this price. I liked the cab so much that I bought 2!!


It might be a great deal.

The one I got had a hideous rattle even at low volumes with a resonance at d#. It seemed like such a good deal. If not for the rattle the tone was better than I would have expected for the price. Nice and loud and compact. If you get a good one its a killer deal. Fortunately I was able to return it without any issues.


Good Value

The cab is an OK value. I was anticipating to get blown away by the speakers, like I did with the 33 W head. IMO, the speakers lack clarity. Its just a muffled comparison to a set of 2 X 12 Black Widows I have paired up (which is probably a little too bright). The brochure indicates Crate is made with the best quality components. I find this hard to believe. I would like to leave a great review, but I am unable to honestly do so. The speakers may/may not hold up with loud volume. I don't know. But, I play low-volumes exclusively. The speakers don't reach-out and grab me like Eminence does with the Valve Jr. I plan on keeping the Cab and replace original speakers with a marquee set of speakers, then sell the original Crate speakers. Peavey and Crate both need to upgrade the quality of their speakers. Peole would be willing to pay more for this. Gear is made up of 3 components, Guitar(pickups), Amp and Speakers. (four with pedals) Cutting on cost/quality on anyone of the three will significantly subject the quality of your sound.


Crate Cab Updated.

By Tonedog-X0EYI

I got this Cab at a great price. But with my Marshall Head(a little Valvestate 8100), it sounded so/so with the stock Crate Speakers. So, I put in 2 Eminence Govenors. WOW!!! Now this little Cab sounds deadly. Really good and I can't wait to try it w/ a straight on full tube head. Thanks for the great deal!


More bang for the buck!!!

Hey look, the bottom line on this puppy is this. For the price, you can't beat it. I have a crate rfx and a Line 6 spider III 150 half stack. I ran the rfx through the V212B and it sounded great. The bottom is perfect for what I use it for and to split the sound ( ala wanna be stereo ) worked perfect. Easy to carry and fits easy in any trunk ( in my case a mini). I tried the Line 6 head through it and it was just fine. Now lets not send any wrong info here. It does not sound like the matching line 6 cabinet of course. but if you have your show all programmed in the head and wanna go light in the cabinet department, well, problem solved. Trust, this is worth the purchase.
