    V15 - Good amp for the money

    By Chris-KjHGE

    from Aurora, Canada

    I bought this amp a month ago and so far, so good. It took me awhile to dial in the tone I wanted but once I got it, it sounded sweet. I use it with a Squier Tele (dual hum buckers). I like the fact that it breaks up quick as a hi-gain amp should.A little quibble...when I took the amp out of the box, the reverb know fell off. No big deal but it was a sealed box and you don't usually expect that to happen.The unit seems pretty solid otherwise. No frills or extras but that is what I was looking for, a clean, warm sound and plenty of gain when I needed it. For the price...it's a really good buy.

    Great Amp

    By Andrew-iYdhI

    from Denton Texas

    Well I just bought this amp at a local guitar shop and I?m really happy with it. It has a great sound through the 5 groove tubes and can get pretty loud for its size. It works well at small gigs but you have to turn it up almost all of the way. I bought it on sale and it was well worth it. Another great thing about this amp is that it?s simple to use which is something I like. You don?t have to fiddle with 50 knobs to get the volume up. It sounds really crisp and has great overdrive. There is only one channel but I play blues and it works perfect. If you wanted to keep the drive down for rhythm id suggest buying a tube screamer. All in all for my first tube amp and very happy and with the 5 year warranty I have nothing to worry about.

    Not up to snuff

    By Old Rocker-SClra

    from Moody, AL

    I purchased this amp. as a blem model, thinking that it would be just as good as a Fender Blues Jr. I might have just gotten a "lemon", but when I turned on the amp., it picked up a local radio station. I returned the amp. and replaced it with a Blues Jr. I will not purchase another Crate tube amp.

    Pretty sick amp

    By quaz

    from WA

    This seems to be a pretty sick amp. I didnt want a bunch of BS doodads and lame digital effects, though they could have included a line out, effects loop, or something like that. Nice wide range of sounds you can get out of this amp. All the gain youll need in the preamp; roll back the gain on the preamp some and turn up the power amp for a nice thick distortion sound. I use a schecter omen 6 with seymour duncan pickups (sh6b and sh2n) and it goes great with this amp. Great little amp for micing up and recording.

    Crate V1512T - Guitar Hero's choice

    By SGGuitarHero

    from Richmond, VA

    Found this guitar amp to be quite comparable and in some ways, even better quality sound than other 15-Watt all tube amps in its class and price range (eg, Fender Blues Jr. - Spring Reverb unit, etc.).
