I saw Austin City Limits last night and saw Billy Gibbons with Rocky Erickson (Thirteenth Floor Elevators) and playing through one of his Crate V3112 amps. I have heard others mentioning his using a pair of them on stage before. A friend turned me on to these amps so I found one on CL last week and played through it a lot in the last few days. It is everything and more than I had hoped for. The one I got is one of the ones that came with the Tone Tubby speaker. These amps are an incredible value. I didn't think I would ever have a Crate amp but I'm glad I have mine. You can check out the video on ACL.
