The first Crate amplifier was built in 1978, and in the decades since, these amps have only gotten better. Bringing heavy metal and rock-ready crunch to the solid-state amp segment, Crate has become a trusted name for musicians of all stripes. When you pipe your axe's tones through a Crate guitar amplifier, meaty distortion is easy to achieve and you can count on the amp's reliability to keep it going strong for gig after gig. To decide which Crate amplifier is the right one for you, start by thinking about how you play and ask yourself a few questions. Where do you plan to play with your new amp? For small to medium venues, rehearsal and studio use, the FlexWave Series FW65 is a great option. This 65W combo amp is more than powerful enough for most stages, but also likes quieter tones when you need them. Packed with a 12" speaker, the FW65 is small enough to transport easily but large enough to shake the walls when you need it to.
For larger venues where you have to push lots of air to get the sound to all corners of the room, check out the FW120H Guitar Amp Head and the FW412 speaker cabinet. With a 120W amp driving over three square feet of speaker cones, the sound you'll get out of this half-stack will be felt as much as heard. Crate was even thoughtful enough to put this duo in a bundle for your convenience: the FlexWave FW120HS and FW412 Half Stack. Simple.
If you're looking for the most versatile combo amp in Crate's lineup, then direct your attention to the Taxi Series TX50DB Limo. Pushing 50W through a 10" driver, this combo delivers sound as luxurious as its name. It can also be oriented virtually any way you like, including on a standard speaker stand. There's no wrong way to play a Limo. Do you play acoustic guitar? If so, Crate has you covered with amps like the CA120DG Durango, CA6110DG Gunnison and CA30DG Taos. Whatever your instrument and style, there's a Crate for you.
Go ahead and give Crate guitar amplifiers a try; they won't disappoint. These are some of the best-sounding solid state amplifiers that you will ever hear, and since you don't have the longevity drawbacks of tubes to worry about, you'll be hearing them for years of reliable rocking to come.
