Product Description

In 1990, Crate patented a solid state technology that simulates the sound of a hard-driven tube circuit. They called it FlexWave. How does that hard-driven tube simulation sound? Warm, distorted lower frequencies and harmonics while highs stay clean. Currently in its fifth incarnation, the FlexWave Evolution Five Preamp 5 offers unsurpassed performance in a solid state amp.

FlexWave amps offer tremendous tone variations-hence the name. Looking for a massive distortion sound? Easy. A clean sound for your single coil pickups? No problem. And the GFX line of FlexWave amps couple that same tone with 10 built-in digital effects that sound incredible. Flange, Chorus, Delay, Reverb, and Chorus + Reverb provide every player a wide range of sounds for every type of gig. Yet, what's more, GFX/FlexWave amps are durable and offer consistent sound because they are solid state. Crate Your Own Sound with GFX/FlexWave amps.

4 out of 5 (35 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Works if you work it!"
Sound: Accurate, but tweeks at the lows. Sound quality is great for a studio amp(when miked properply). Slow response nothing a better pickups wouldn't cure. Yes in it's own little world. Yeah, because I use it as part of "tri-amping" technique. Yes. Actually it's pretty evenly based. Not to great to be honest, it needs alot of help. Alot better. Don't know I'd be affaid of using it live. Good very easy to operate. Jackson Rhodes, Jackson KE3> DOD Tec4x> GX15> speaker monitors/Kenwood Reciever(250 Watts max output> 2 MTX triaxles{100 watts per})> Randell RBA 500(500 watts), bass head> 2 Cerwin Vega MX 400(400 Watts power handling). Triamped. Feature: Basically, the features are great for my setup. It allows me to control the tone before the signal is boosted. Lets just say I wasn't getting enough output to the head and receiver before, now I do. The only draw back is if you have and older model like I do, the components get wore and have to be replace, like I had to do. I leard a lot about Crate's GX amp inside and out. Quality: This is probably the only thing I can say. The quality department is lacking because of failure of parts, but no worries, they were fixed. I couldn't depend on it. Wish I had a backup. I don't think I would haul off and tour with this thing, NO. But after all was ordered and put back in, just a few minor maintance issuse, mechanical parts. Manufacturer Support: Nope, first time. Yeah and helpful too. Technically yes. N/A. YES! :-{ Did all the work myself. Turned out good so far... The Wow Factor: cute. it getting there, I understand that the newer models are made a little different but this little amp has pulled me up and put me back on my feet(it's great when parts aren't blowing out). It practical, but very helpful. Overall: About a year. supplement. Wearing it out, looking for better hardwear at the same price. Good. Sometimes. Probably buy something eles, Marshall. How old it was. Very helpful when low on cash. HARDWARE!
Style of Music: ROCK, Heavy Metal.

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.
