    Crate V32 Problem

    I love this amp cuts in and out during first 10-15 minutes of playing at stage volume on the clean channel, until it really warms up. At home at low volumes it's fine. I have sprayed cleaner into the pots, retouched the solder joints at the tube sockets, made sure the bolts on the...

    Is a Plexi good for anything besides Hard Rock or Metal?

    I'm just curious. I want to build one, but I favor Roots Rock, Alt Country, Surf, etc. I don't know if I would be wasting my time. When I hear people like David Grissom, I kind of think I want one just from the tones I am hearing.
