I've had the Crate VTX15 for about 6 years. I teach guitar almost full time and use it for all my lessons. It's a nearly perfect practice amp. Too bad that it's been discontinued. I get a lot of questions about it. I must have a slightly different model because mine has a maroon casing and tweed front. But the sound and features are exactly the same.I've really never had any problem with this amp. I didn't like the distortion tone at first but I've grown to love it. Keep the gain around 5 or 6 and the volume below 3, bass at 7, mids at 2, treble at 10 and you're in business. It can handle hard rock/80s metal stuff pretty well. Doesn't sound good at high volume but why should it? It's just a 15 watt solid state practice amp. Definitely not for gigging or rehearsing with a drummer present.The clean sound is surprisingly good. Very deep and rich instead of the thin tinny sound you get on other amps this size. All the effects sound decent enough. The delay and reverb are actually quite impressive. Those are the only two I really use anyway.I'm usually not a huge fan of Crate products but this is one of the best practice amps I've come across. If you can find one, buy it.
I play all types of music but mostly rock and this little amp really works great and packs a real punch in 1 10 inch speaker it almost sounds like a marshall tube! I have owned it since about 2005 and still works great! The one drawback was that the effects were not the best ( dont use often) and the knobs were a little lose. The Clean Channel works and sounds great with acoustic electric guitars and the solo channel sounds great with my 2008 HSS Mexi Strat. If you ask me this is the best amp for the money. I also have a Austin strat and it is built so cheaply and it sounds like a American Fender Strat on the amp!
I have had this amp for almost a year and still love it. When I bought a reissue 50's Strat they let me demo it using this little Crate VTX15. The clean channel was so Fender I was blown away, the solo channel sounded like a really driven tube amp. When I got home I plugged my Strat into a cheap practice amp and was so disappointed with the sound of my new guitar I almost took it back. The solution was simple...buy the Crate and keep the guitar. Since then I have added a bunch of guitars (solid, semi hollow and a jazz box) and they all sound really good through this amp. I would have to say one of its best features is how well it sounds at low volume...perfect for those "can't fall asleep nights". If your just getting into guitar I highly suggest this amp, especially if you are starting out with an entry level Squire or Epiphone type instrument. You will be amazed at how good these lower end guitars will sound. Being an old guy (Got my first Roy Rodgers guitar in 1959) I believe that products like this Crate and many of the very affordable quality guitars out there, make this the golden era of making music.
The sound is poor.The distortion is horrible when the volume is turned above half way.The only good thing i saw in this amp is that the clean sound isnt terrible.This amp is ok for a practice amp but if u ask me i would go with something else.
I've had this amp for about a year now, and it was a pretty good amp for the money. It has a lot of effects, but the only ones that are good is the delay and reverb. The wah settings are horrible, as well as the flanger, but you can't expect a lot from a little practice amp. The distortion on it suprised me. I expected it to sound like crap, as most built in distortion channels are in cheaper amps, it really didn't though. But after turnin' the gain past half it's kinda crappy soundin', but definetly not the worst i've heard though. If you keep it around half or below , it has a pretty nice classic rock sound. The clean is also good on the amp, and with the reverb it's pretty damn good. Quality is also pretty good, but the knobs feel a little loose, like their bout ready to come off. Bottom line, it's a great little practice for a begginner or somethin' just beat around with and not have a lot of money in. But I would defintately reccommend this to a begginer cuz it has a lot of effects, it's rather cheap, and it will last awhile.
