    Found out about this on the Telecaster forum -
    Music123 is running $65 off $250+ (with a long list of exclusions, of course)

    But Crate/Blackheart aren't one of them, so if you get one of the Little Giant $249.99 combos or mini-stacks, add on the cheapest item you can find (a five-pack of non-Fender picks for me), the whole deal is ~$185-190 shipped.

    Hard to beat, I think.

    While Crate and Blackheart ARE listed on the exclusion list, I have a BH5-112 combo in my shopping cart right now, added a cable and it does show the $75 off the total.

    Not sure I want to pull the trigger, have a couple of high end amp options coming my way soon... But might be nice to have for cheap $.

    Wow, tempting, I've had my eye on these for a while...I don't see Blackheart on the exclusion list, only Crate, and the discount shows up when you put it in your cart...

    I've been wanting one since they came out, but seems like all the chains have no head/cab deals, so I got the 112 combo. I think it'll be just as good, I hope. This will be sweet for the price!

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Thanks for the info guys!! I was looking to get one soon as a pratice amp for home use. i just had a questions to those who tried the stock speaker. I was thinkin of buying just the head, and i have a spare Greenback (Rola era, England made..) that i could put in a 1x12. I know they are different speaker, but should i use my greenback or the stock Eminence ?

    Thanks !!

    Yeah I seen that too, but the discount was in the cart on the on-line shopping, so....

    Maybe because this a BLACKHEART amp? Crate is only the outlet for them. I don't know, we'll see if they give me any static about it. I already summit the CC to them. If they do, I'll cancel the order and wait for the head/cab to come back in stock sometime in the next 10 years, lol.

    I wanted the head/cab..but the combo will do. The opening in the combo isn't that big really. Also got a pack of my .73 Dunlop picks.

    Total was $178.98 shipped.....and if I don'tlike the amp, I can still send it back. Great deal I think.

    What upgrades do you guys plan on making? Tubes (all 2 of them) are cheap....speaker possibly, we'll see.

    Tubes are are the first thing, I'll wait and see on the speaker, it is an Emi after all, lol


    I just checked, my order is "approved", but I don't have a tracking number yet. 3-7 bussiness days for delivery.

    Fun Fun

    I just got the Little Giant combo last night. Sounds great through a 412 cab. But using the internal speaker I get an unbearable rattle. I think it is the preamp tube (there was some damage to the box, may have been dropped). I love the sound through the 412, but I bought it mostly for portability. I hate dealing with UPS about damaged packages so I will probably replace the tubes to see if that fixes it. I'd like to know if anybody else has the same problem or another solution. I really really want to like this thing. I hope I didn't jump the gun by not waiting for the stack to come off of backorder.
