After unleashing the 300 watt all-tube Blue Voodoo to stores and concert stages around the world, Crate now introduces the BV150HB, which features many of the same tones as the BV300HB in a less sonically aggressive power package.
"We have a number of new, professional users for the BV300HB, and it has proven to be a road-worthy warrior in large venues," declared Crate's Pat Stevenson. "Even though the amp sounds great at any level, everything about the amp, including the size and power of the BV300 is a bit intimidating for some players. The BV150HB still uses 6550 power tubes, which is unusual for an amp of this power range; it still has three channels and the same vibe of the BV300HB. It's just more accessible for any player."
Each of the three channels feature Gain, Mid (selectable with a 5 position switch), Level, low and high frequency controls. The new BV412ST and BV412SL straight and slant cabinets are being introduced to match-up with the BV150HB. These are full size 4X12 cabinets and features 13-ply birch construction, stereo/mono operation and specially designed Crate American Vintage speakers.
