Crate BX-50DLX Reviews 5

My Crate BX-50DLX set me back $269.00 at Guitar Center in Webster Texas.

The sound, and adjustability of this amp are fantastic compared to everything else I looked at in its price range. From warm and deep to higher crunch, it will fullfill a good range of sounds. It has built in input for your CD to play a track to practice to, and a great built in chromatic tuner. This has proven to be a great aid in practice already. I am just starting out, and this thing lets me hear everything I am doing, the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Side mount handle, weight (45 pounds or thereabout), and no kick back provisions. Minor quibbles at worst. And a happy trade for all its great features and sound...

Tank builders could learn a thing or two about this monster.

I am just starting out, and even though I don't bother twisting it up very far, it is CLEAR. This is a great amp for learning, and should prove to be a great amp for church or small club gigs, perhaps even small to medium outdoor parties would really get going with this thing. Don't take my word for it though. Go find stores that carry the amps you want to look at, and then test play the ones in your price range. For me, this is an unbeatable combo!
