    Im thinking about buying a Crest LT2000 power amp, does anyone have experience with this power amp or Crest products in general?

    I've got an LT1000 in my future. I know Chris Benavente uses a crest in his rig as does Brian Barrett. The NAMM video's from http://www.benaventeguitars.com are all of Benavente basses plugged direct into a crest then to a Bergantino HT322.
     
  4. I had an LT 1500. It was a good reliable amp, sounded great. But only tubes for me now.

    Don't look back man. Buy the amp. I have the ST2000 and I'll never buy another poweramp. The response is super fast and it sounds HUGE! I couldn't reccomend a better amp.

    I have a Crest Lt 1500 and it is a great amp. Call Brian Barrett at the low end.
     
  7. 35 pounds.

    Heavier than a PLX, lighter than an RMX.

    Wow, they just changed the weight on them. Use to be 27 Lbs.... well its a light 35 Lbs :)

    Couldn't ask for a better amp! Its alot more musical then some other amps on the market. And the price on them for what you get is unbeatable.
