"BUY THIS AMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Great tone on high gain. If you tweak the clean and overdrive, they sound pretty good. I play deathcore and this amp has a perfect tone for it. I have a Marshall MG30DFX, and my crate blows the Marshalls distortion out of the ballpark.
I like how it has delay, chorus, reverb, and flanger. It was confusing, but I figured out how to turn off the Mods. Only bad thing is that on high gain, you just have shape instead of bass, treble, and middle, but its all good :)
Ease of Use:
Pretty easy to use. I had it on the perfect tone on all three channels within 10 minutes.
Ive dropped the head from a couple feet, and it sounds and slike it did the day i got it. I LOVE the way it looks, sounds, and feels.
I haven't had to use Crates support, their products are made extremely well. If only they made their products worse, then i could rate the support. :)
Im 16 and I guess you can tell i dont have a whole lot of money, so i tried this out and it was the best value. This amps tone probably is better than many other expensive amps.
The Wow Factor:
The look is basic but cool. Grey is better than hot pink.
Overall, if you want a great, cheap amp, this is the one to go with. Great tone, great looks, great quality. BUY THIS AMP!!!!!!
