    Gotta love a sneaky wife with a good heart and memory. She knows how much I love my Crate VC50. And remembers me seeing the VC20 at a local pawnshop. Our anniversary is the 25th (one year) I suck at keeping secrets. So I have her her present Monday. I wake up and this beauty is in my room.

    I had to get ready for work so couldn’t play a whole lot. But did a quick rundown on settings and played a tad. I like it. I actually don’t like the gain on my 50. But this little thing rips. Idk why. I guess with being 20 watt 112 verses 50 watt 212. It breaks up better. Idk. But can’t wait to really dive in!

    haha I plan to! Just hate they aren’t in production anymore. So biggest fear is something goes really south and I won’t be able to replace them lol. Really debated lately getting something like a fender blues deluxe for gigging so I can keep the Crate in as good shape as it is

    Sooo after playing with the 20. I love it. It drives better than the 50. Which is to be expected lol. May run both. Use the 50 for clean headroom. And the 20 for dirt. And ABY between the two.

    with my pedals. I dont really need to. But I got the switch, I got both amps. Why not? :lol:

    Wasn’t there also a 30-watt 1 x 12 VC amp in that era?

    I think you’re going to have to collect the whole set!

    That’s awesome; cool to see someone using and enjoying these things. Crate deserved more recognition for those, I think. They resisted the temptation for bling that ended up getting the better of them on the Blue Voodoo amps.

    You wonder if the timing had been a little different if that line could have been their equivalent to the Peavey 5150 in the “finally, something that’s not entry-level from these guys” sense.
