I cant beleive Cate got it for You must try it and decide for yourself. This iss the best sounding amp I have ever played for the price, I own lots of vintage vf5x212 even a matchless c and I never thought of crate as a quality amp.

I played the v palomino and I was shocked, what a great sound and cheap too. The clean channel is awesome. My matchless cost me almost 3k and for the money this amp would be my first choice, if I only had 3k to spend for equip I wouuld buy the crate, a epiphone LP 56 goldtop and an epiphone firebird v and I’d still have a good grand left over.

It is a bit heavy at 58 lbs I’ve already sold a couple fenders,marsshall,musicman and silvertone amps I owned. I have let a few of my critical guitar buddies play thru it amd they were very impressed as well. It sounds like a marshall plexi yet it has almost a mesa balls yet like a xox ac or almost like my matchless not quite but very close.

I currently have the head version of the V [V30H] that I absolutely dig. The amp comes with foot-switch which can be programmed for 2 effects per channel.

The seperate EQ sections [the presence and effects level control are shared] are quite flexible and allow great tone ceate of the clean and distortion channels. I had installed a pair of Celestion G12H’s and the speakers made this superb amp sound and feel even better than ever.

Don’t let the Crate name fool you, St. The standard easy rolling vfxx5212 help to get this hefty combo around with relative ease. I have been playing for 31 years, I have 22 guitars and all of them sound great with this amp!
