    My band is looking to ass an amp for our subs. We can pick up a used Crest LT1500 for $500. It has a new main board installed by authorized Crest techs. Just wondering if this is a good deal for one.

    Opinions?? I know BassNW has one for less. But this one has been fixed and looked over.

    I also hear their is an "arching" problem with the LT series. This is supposedly why this amp was repaired. Fact or fiction.
  2. I had one before I went "all tube". It's a great amp, I got mine used for like 420.00. I guess you got a good deal cause it was looked over by the techs then.

    as for the arching problem, I've had a ton of the crest LT's and never heard of this. Not saying it not something thats happen but I've never seen it or heard of it, I use a number of them in the shop for demoing as well and have sold a tone of them. I'm not really sure what the arching is.....

    Killer amp!

    I owned a Crest LT 1500 and it was an excellent amp. I highly recommend them.
