Crate today introduced the FlexWave guitar amplifier line. With the patented FlexWave Evolution 5 preamp producing rich, controllable tone, this new series of affordable guitar amps combines award-winning design with Crate reliability.
"FlexWave is a rugged, roadworthy line of amplification equipment that features the amazing tone of the FlexWave Evolution 5 preamp," said Paul Meisenzahl, Crate product manager. "We designed the FlexWave line for guitarists who need consistent, superior tone from their stage and practice amps."
The combos and heads feature FlexWave Evolution 5 preamps with Sequential Cascading Gain™ technology and 3-band EQ for precise tone shaping. The 65-watt and larger models include onboard Digital Signal Processing (DSP) effects. Crate's legendary Channel Tracking feature automatically remembers which DSP effect is assigned to each channel. All FlexWave cabinets, combos and heads are covered in rugged Tolex™ vinyl for ultimate durability.
