Members Saturn Posted January 24, 2010 Members Share Posted January 24, 2010 I've been looking for a good amp to run in stereo running out of the right side stereo on my RP1000. I started a thread asking about a Carvin SX100 and a couple of you immediatly chimed in "get a Crate Power Block". Now that was my first thought but I haven't run across one of those in quite a while. They had 4 of them on ebay but I haven't used ebay in over 5 years and really don't want to. I also found a Peavey Encore 65 online and thought that might also do for just the power amp section. So I went to check out the two amps. When I got to GC where they had the Peavey in the used section I found a complete zoo and the Peavey had been sold. I was getting kind of irritated but figured I'd run over to MGR. The closest MGR is one of my favorite local stores and they had the Carvin. I walked in the door and chatted with the guys at the front counter and turned around to look at the amps and what do I see? A Crate Power Block! It wasn't listed on the web site. I asked the guys about it and was told it came in yesterday. Cool......Sold! So now I had to find a cab. They had several 412s but not what I need. The only 212s they had were a craptacular Peavey with Scorpions in it. No way would that work. And a Music Man that was more than I wanted to spend at this time. The guys said check out the Crate 112 that the Power Block came in with. I tipped it over and checked out the speaker and what did I see? A Celestion G12-K 100. Score!!!!!! So out the door I went with my new head and cab. Got home and hooked it up in stereo and holy crap Batman!!!!! Talk about a wall of sound!!! Louder than hell!!!! And the Power Block sounds increadible using my Marshall Haze pre-amp. I have the Haze connected using the 4 cable method to the RP1000 and the right side stereo out going to the Power Block. My natural amps tone just sound huge and the few amp sims I use on the RP1000 sound stellar! So here are the pics. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
