crate V Series V18-112 18W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp

Sound Quality

Loud but with a very flat tone. No highs and no warm bottom end. Does need to be upgraded. Distortion sounded crunchy but with no definition. Very mid range (muddy) sounding amp. Spring reverb way to deep, had to keep it on 2.


These amps were discountinued, I believe to poor quality control. If you get a good one and upgrade it, should last. The cabinet is nicely constructed.

General Comments

I sold mine real fast because I didn't want to do all the upgrades - speaker and tubes. I'm not a tube guy - don't know how to bias.

These amps were cheap and I know why. Crate often puts cheap speakers into their lower end cabinets. Good project amp.
