    Naw...I'm pretty sure its a 200 watter...I have the manual, and it says 200 watts. Might be a different make or something...or a misprint...

    What's with all the crate hate! Crate made some good stuff up until about 4 years ago. The only music store in our small town sold nothing but crate. I worked there on and off for 4 years and we only ever had one person ever return a crate product we sold them despite the fact that we sold hundreds of their products. Every band in town was rockin crate amps
    (both tube and solid state) and crate pa gear.

    Good for you on a sweet deal!

    The amp is only 80 watts that's really not that great of a deal.

    Even if it was 200 watts, that thing'd be lucky to net 50 bucks on my local craigslist. Sorry to crap on your deal boss :)

    You do realize this is a 9 year old thread, right? :eyebrow:
     
  12. LOL, I was wondering how many people were going to post with their opinions on the OP's "honey of a deal" before they realized he bought it over 9 years ago.

    You dug up a 9 year old Crate thread to post this?

    Too funny.:rolleyes:

    Did your own Crate amp catch on fire and burn down your house? Worse?:eek:

    Now that the thread is dug up and wondering around looking for brains to eat...

    I'd be curious to know,
    1) did the OP get that amp
    2) Was it indeed 200 watts
    3) Did he like it?

    :confused:
