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

Sound Quality

out of the box this amp is lacking (reverb sounded horrible) so im taking some points but true to form Crate makes it easy to remedy any problems and make the amp give you the sound you want. i swaped out the preamp tubes jj 12au7's in the preamp and a groove 12au7 in the splitter. (i like blues and that set up lets me drive the power tubes a little harder with out preamp gain. then a accutronics reverb tank to take care of the sewer pipe reverb and im good to go. (if your wanting a more modern sound your gonna need a speaker too)


well it just sits in my living room so it doesnt get much abuse but it seems heavy and sturdy a year and a half with no problems. so im happy

If you can still find one go for it for 150 you arnt gonna get another all tube amp and dont let the 18watts scare you. if you need more volume mic it.
