« Crate BT100 »

Published on 06/15/08 at 15:00
I've played bass as a second instrument for about 15 years now, but when gigging, I'm mostly playing guitar.

Bought through instrumentpro.com for about $250 USD a year ago. Was looking for a relatively inexpensive portable bass amp and this fit the bill.

The built-in, well lit tuner is great, and the footswitch/2 channels is handy as well. Here's some notes from the product description at InstrumentPro.com: With 100W, a 15" bass driver, and a balanced line out, this compact combo can hold its own in nearly any gig situation. It has 2 channels: a distortion channel with gain, shape, and level controls; and a clean channel with level, 4-band EQ, and an octave switch with level for boosting bottom end. Its XLR balanced line out is pre/post selectable. The CFS2 2-button footswitch is included for switching channels and kicking in the octave switch from the floor. Limiter, chromatic tuner, headphone jack, and CD inputs are also incorporated.

Sound quality kind of sucked. A little soft and fuzzy when straining. This 100W combo will struggle with anything but a garage band, so understand you're getting what you pay for.

Good quality, lots of rehearsals and a few gigs, plenty of wear n tear. The only issue was that one time a fuse blew, but it was under warranty and was repaired very quickly.

A good amp for someone on a budget, still trying to do no more than play in the bedroom.
