Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (34 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Go out and listen to other brand of acoustic amps, at least 5 or 6, and see what sounds the best! CRATE , CRATE , CRATE !!!"
Sound: The sound is the best out of 12 different amps I tried first. The sound is rich and true, and had a CA125 but sold it to buy the CA125D. The diffrence was only $50 for the deal I swung so I thought what the hell trade a 9 yr old amp for a 2 yr old with effects! It sounds great live and with the send and return output it help for the rack proccessors. Feature: All the features are very useful. My effects rack helps to get the hiss out (thats very annoying) and the Feedback destroyer stops the midrange feedback that seems to be a problem with Acoustic guitars. I wish it had a parametric EQ onboard to fine tune it all. I feel the 3 ch is the baet feature especially the lo-z for mic. Perfect for gigs, studio, or anything I've done. Overall the best I found especially for the price! Quality: The amp is solid as a rock, and made very well. The finish & fit was done real well although I liked the light tan tolex better on the last few models vs the dark brown. It is very reliable , and a work horse that has never gave me any trouble. I now own a Blue Voodoo BV150H, and love Crate products. Especially the 5 yr transferable warranty that is transferable. The best in the industry as far as I'm concerned! Never went down on me YET, and I think it will last for ever as I have all my equipment serviced once a year. Their like changing oil in a car. If you do it regularly it will last for a long time. Take care of it, and it will take care of you! Manufacturer Support: Any service work I've had on Crate products were no problem as I've dealt with the same store for about 25 years, and Crate always paid up with no hassle! I never dealt with customer service so I can't comment on that area. All my service has been pleasant tranactions. The Wow Factor: The overall appearance is wonderful especially when you look at the new CA125DG. GREEN Tolex? UGGG ! It's straight forward design with the tilt-back cabinet was very smart of the engineering department. Look how many others do it now! Very good addition to my other Crate gear. Overall: I will keep this amp till it falls apart unless they come out with a Blue Voodoo Acoustic with 2-12"s in it. Hey Crate engineering. Can you take a HINT, HINT !If it were lost or stolen I would definitly look for another as I said you couldn't pay me to take a GREEN CA125DG!
Style of Music: Rock, Pop, Country Rock or Pop, Jazz, and now some Christian Rock with my 18 yr old daughter that's making a CD.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
