Perfect EL34 tone

By jdpvtec

from East Stroudsburg, PA

I picked up the V50 after many bad experiences. I originally got the Palomino V30, but when it arrived, the reverb didnt work. I sent it back, got another V30, still no working reverb. In frustration, I tried the Fender Hot Rod Deluxe. That thing just didnt sound good. Then I saw the V50, I said why not. I am glad I made this decision. The clean channel sounds great with all my guitars. The distortion channel has the classic crunch that EL34's provide. The tone of this thing is just what I was looking for. Its a great alternative to a marshall or a boogie when you dont have $3,000 to spend. I highly recomend the V50...


Great amplifyer

I just recently swapped my Fender Hot Rod DeVille 410 for this Crate Palomino V50, and I'm in love with it. I was totally blow away by its rich and lush tone, which I've longed for. I also enjoy its individual EQ for each channel.I couldn't be happier with my decision getting this amp, it's incredible.

WOW, What an incredible amp. Considering it's closeout price, I've never been so blown away by any 50 watt all tube amp anywhere near this cost. It's an absolute no brainer. For this money it's far better than anything I've heard or owned in over thirty years of playing everything under the sun. Almost boutique quality tones. It has a small reverb tank that sounds kind of surfy but I can upgrade to a nice Accutronics for very little cash. I use externals anyways so I'm not too concerned. I'll swap some tubes and maybe change a stock speaker or even both one day but for now it's just incredible. With a five year warranty I'm not too worried about it at all. This may be the best deal MF has ever had. It just plain smokes for blues rock. Get one before they're gone and you won't be sorry. Nothing else comes close.


Awesome Amp

By Livin4God

from San Francisco, CA

This amp is amazing! Quite a bit larger than what I had expected but the amp sounds great. You might lose a little street credit when people find out its made by Crate but you shouldn't care, because the sound is awesome. Definitely a good buy, I bought two!

this amp is an amazing amp. I went from a little 15 watt to this and it has great tone and bass. this amp can go louder than you can imagine and could easily work for performing. The reverb is also very nice on it and it comes with a foot switch. I highly recommend it!!!!!!


Great Value

By No Daisies

We were upgrading my daughters amp from a ad15 vox because it could not keep up with her band. She played thru every amp around (in our price range, no mesas or soldanos) and her favorite was the fender 410 deville. Then we happened on this amp. It was priced as a closeout and had 95% of the tone she was after at half the price of the deville.

Buy this Amp

By JessAdr

from Murfreesboro, Tn

This is the coolest amp Crate ever made. I got a Palamino V50212 direct from Crate for an exchange for a V50212. The amp came in a big box that looked like a trash box. Still taped up but loose. Packing only in the bottom none on the top or sides. Very poor packing shows no pride in the product. It was missing a knob the footswitch and had scratches on the V50 emblem and corners. Their reply was "If it don't work take it to a Service Center". Yea Right. Anyway I am going to order a new one and hopefully all the parts will be on it.Sill Love them Crate amps


Great stage amp for little money

By foox

from Georgia

Great sound, classic features ... everything you expect for a blues rock amp. I got it at clearance price and own it since half a year now. Tubes had to wear in a little, after that the good sound became a great sound.
