I recently bought this amp, and had looked thru some old threads here on it before and since. I put "Crate" in quotation marks because oddly enough the name Crate is nowhere to be found, neither on the amp anywhere, nor in the manual. Back panel says St. Louis Music, Inc, made in USA. Model V3112, 4 EL84's, 3 12AX7's, 30 watts I guess. Seems very well made, has some good tones in it. Foot switch for overdrive and boost. I'm guessing made in early 2000's. The clean side is good, well defined, with plenty of bottom end. Overdrive decent - still experimenting. Has the Celestion 70/80. Loud. So far, it's been a good bargain. Previous posts about this amp are a few years old. Anything new out there to report on this (so far) cool little amp?
