Crate amplifiers are well known throughout the music world for their raw power and versatility. With years of building quality instruments under their belt, Crate has built a reputation that is both trusted and respected by hobbyists and professional touring musicians alike. A brief look at the roster of musicians who trust their sound to Crate amplifiers should be enough to convince you just how great this gear is. Sammy Hagar of Chickenfoot, John Hiatt, Joe Walsh of the Eagles, the legendary Bo Diddley, C.C. DeVille of Poison, Al Jourgensen of Ministry, skate punk pioneer Fletch Dragge of Pennywise, Billy Gibbons of the incomparable ZZ Topand more, all take to the stage and the studio with a Crate amplifier in tow to electrify their fans.
When choosing the Crate amplifier that's right for you, there are a few questions you should ask yourself. First and foremost, what are you using the amp for? If it's for practice at home or light jamming with friends, you might be best to go with an option such as the FlexWave Series FW15 15W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp. This amp is easy to transport and delivers fantastic crunch and tone, plus, a headphone jack means you can plug in and rock out at any hour. If you're looking for an amplifier to pair with your acoustic electric guitar, then check out the Crate CA15 Cimarron 1x8 12W Acoustic Combo Amp. This amp delivers excellent projection and tones you won't be able to get enough of, making it perfect for the coffee house or an impromptu living room performance.
If you're taking to bigger stage, you'll need to decide between a combo amp and a stack. If you decide to go the combo route, maybe spend some time with the FlexWave Series FW65 65W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp. This amp comes packed with all the muscle you need in one convenient package. If, on the other hand, you're more interested in a stack, the FlexWave FW120HS and FW412 Half Stack might be right for you. With 120W of serious bite, this amp is going to sound great in larger venues as you soar through your fancy fretwork. In the end, the choice between a combo or a stack is totally one of preference. Regardless of choice, know that your Crate is up to the challenge.
Crate has always been a name that musicians turn to. Whether you're learning your craft with a practice amp, or getting ready to play the biggest gig of your career, Crate has you covered every time you crank it up.
