    Crate BX100 - "Great amp for the price"


    This is a solid state bass amp made by Crate. Their products tend to be hit or miss, but more often than not their higher end stuff (which is still cheap compared to most gear) is pretty decent. This falls into that category. It's a combo amp, and ha…

    Crate Blue Voodoo BV412SVB - "Great cabinet for cheap!"


    This is a really solid cabinet from Crate. There are 4 12" Celestion speakers inside of it. It is a bit burdensome to carry around, but it does have wheels. Stairs are difficult but that's the case with most cabinets. Because of this, it actually sou…
