    I was watching Living Colour Live at the World Cafe and I saw Vernon Reid using one of there with a Boogie cab.

    Anybody here use one?

    What did you like/ dislike about it?

    I know Crate has some QC issues so just assume it's a good one I'm asking about.

    Thanks up front!

    For all of the hype that this amp gets (i.e., "brutal tone", "bone crushing distortion", etc), I found the tone to be very thin and buzzy sounding. For the same money, there are many amps that are a better alternative.

    I agree 100%. Also, I sold a few back in the day when I ran a MI store. Almost every one came back in for service within a few months...

    For heavy rock, I greatly recommend a used 5150 in the same ballpark price range.

    TECH TIP 1: Stick a GE7 EQ in the LOOP and you can get sick metal tones.

    TECH TIP 2: Don't suck out ALL the mids!!!

    Amen on the 5150!!! The 5150 will absolutely destroy the blue voodoo....absolutely no comparison.
