It has a number of features that make a really solid tube amp even better. A really, really good tube amp. The clean channel can get everything from dark and jazzy to sparkling high end shimmer and spank. I do wish that the VFX had both 8 and 16 ohm speaker out jacks that would also disable the internal speakers.
Did you find this review helpful? What a great amp, marshall plexi british sound, almost a triple rect mesa sound at full gain and the most beautiful sparkly spanking clean sound I think I have ever heard in my life,equal to the best fender or I hate to say MATCHLESS sound at least for the price the effects are A grade, even though not adjustable they seemed to have nailed the most used presets.
The overall consruction of the amp looks and feels to be of high quality. I have owned mine for 1.
Seen it for less somewhere else? You will regret if you don’t at least try it out. I currently have the head version of the V [V30H] that I absolutely dig.
Want our best price even faster? Both channels on this amp sound great. My friend brought over his Mesa, I also used an A-B box side by side at lower volumes with my line 6 vetta and compared sounds and the crate sounds better than both, I called my friend who has a matchless c from and we put them side by side and this v sounded just as good but had more balls when the gain was cranked, the matchless had a bit more magic an some rnages but damn this crate is incredible, I always thought crate amps were 2nd rate and a cheap alternitive to much more expensive amps and I never even considered buying a”CRATE” even at a super bargain price but I am totlly blown away, the dynamics are excellent, the sound can please the most descriminating players from,blues,jazz and hardcore rock.

The clean channel is awesome. I cant beleive how good this thing sounds and my musician friends all were impressed as well. Btw,it does not have the word “Crate” anywhere on the amp or the on the box that it came in. Louis Music has done an outstanding job putting this complete amp package together. This includes heavy and oversized items. Help FAQs Go to top. The clean channel is very crisp and produces a very full tone with a great bottom end.

While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. The high gain tones are rather articulate in nature and are more smooth than nasty.
This review was originally published on http: This has to be one of the best 50 watt 2×12″ tube combo amps on the market for the money. Do Not let the Crate name make you run the other way. I’m still keeping my matchless and my line 6 vetta though but this is my new “gig” amp.

The sockets were so tight that I even heard the solder joints creak as I tried to wiggle the tubes out. All we need is the first payment up front and the rest in easy monthly payments! I had installed a pair of Celestion G12H’s and the speakers made this superb amp sound and feel even better than ever. I’ve already sold a couple fenders,marsshall,musicman and silvertone amps I owned. They wont even give you a schematic for the thing, so vfx52112 tech had to buy that and charge me for that as vfx512.
The digital effects are pretty good, although not adjustable they are rcate to what I would set them at and they sound pretty damn good. Most people have not seen nor heard a V and are really surprised to learn it’s a Crate. You must try it and decide for yourself. It is a bit heavy at 58 lbs If you call our customer service department for assistance, this number makes it easier for us to answer any questions you have about products, services or purchases.
If you are a guitarist that digs the British tone and vibe of EL34’s and likes to use digital effects for “soundscaping” I really liked the many nice features and superb clean and high gain tones available.
