This amp is in excellent condition. A couple very small scuffs, but nothing at all that affects functionality.
This line of Crate class A tube amps have to be the best sounding amps anywhere close to their price range. The V series, along with the Palomino series, are unsung heroes, in my opinion. To use a performance car term, this amp is what I’ve always thought of as a “sleeper” in the amp world.

Clean channel is amazing and clear, and works wonderfully with any pedals you run into it. The overdrive channel breaks up into beautiful tube overdrive goodness. The reverb is very useable and gives some deep reverb tones to your sound.

As for power, don’t think this thing can’t handle any size venue you find yourself in. 30 watts of tube power will blow away much higher wattage solid state amps. The 30 watts that it delivers get more than loud enough for use in any situation. It will also dial back to great sounding low levels when needed.

I’ve used this amp for playing pretty much every genre of music, and it does the job perfectly.

The only thing I’m missing is the foot switch for switching between channels. Those are easy to find online though, if you need it.

Specs:
Class A, 30W, 12" Celestion G12P-80 speaker, spring reverb, 4 x 12AX7A preamp tubes, 4 x EL84 output tubes
