  • Create V18 New App

    Pretty much shelved my Crate V18 because I could not get
    a clean sound out of it. Way to dark for me! After seeing some clips
    on Youtube with a guy playing various classic Harmonica Mics through
    a baseman I decided to pick up a cheep crystal mic and try the Crate
    out with a harp. The combination of the cheep amp and cheep mic
    is fantastic. Classic blues growl. The whole flavor of the AMP that I
    disliked for guitar is perfect for Harp. Just thought I would share:thu:

    It took me a while to really love that amp, and some modding. My suggestion, would be to get a brighter speaker, first...like an eminence legend GB128. I also did the clean channel mod on mine. Check out this site...http://blueguitar.org/. TONS of cool and EASY mods to do to that amp...including SLO mod, clean channel mod, XTC mod, and others. Cost me about 6 bucks in parts to do mine, and I ****************ing LOVED that amp afterwards. My buddy still has it, and I told him I got dibs if he ever decides to sell it.

      I was planning on going the mod route a while back. I picked up
      all the parts for the SLO mod just never got aroud to doing the change.
      Sounds like the clean chan mod might be more of what I would look for
      for guitar. For now though I'm just lovin the way it is for harmonica!
      Thanks for the link!
