5 watt all-tube amp (X2), class A, driven by a volume, one tone and a gain between guitar and a line out for connecting an external speaker. One HP 8 'brand Celestion.
A small, lightweight and portable aisment.
Question look, it's simple, it is black.
Manufacture all US ST LOUIS.
That's it!

UTILIZATION

Amateur's blues rock you will be filled.
The sound is less clear his thing (Fender are the kings in this area). The crunch comes quickly to rev up quickly distortion APRS "7" of the gain knob.
It will not take questions rglages the head, a ring quickly and well.

SOUNDS

CRATE is the hallmark of ZZ TOP. Indeed for this style of music is nickel. It is sending, a growl, it's warm and round, a good grainy crunch (thank you lamps). The distortion of moving ct good old 70's rock (Led Zep ...).

I play it with a gibson Blueshawk P90 and a team of US fender stratocaster standard. The fender is fully expressed with this little amp.

For mtal, it will add a distortion pedals.
For the famous 5 watts, a smile can do, but make no mistake, adgage enough to play in groups (rpetitions). For home, the volume does Exceeds rarely "4" on 10.

I RPET crystal clear clean sounds are limited, so I put 9.

OVERALL OPINION

I test the small Valbee ibanez 5 watts lamps. It is well and poyvalent but fewer characters than CRATE. Beware the CRATE is not in the same price range (suprieure), it is not made in China, is a 100% US.
The highlight of the CRATE is the warm and muscle that comes out.

Transplanted on a HP External Diameter great, it must be trs trs good.
A good choice to have his lights at home or in small groups.
on the other hand, it is difficult to find a MODEL in time, it is quite rare in France.
