Product Description

Classic tones in a thoroughly flexible amp format, the V100H puts an unspeakable amount of power and tonal options in your hands while keeping the price point within your means. Switchable from 100W to 50W with no more than a flick of your finger, the V100H uses two separate headroom palettes to lay the foundation for its equally thoughtful Vintage or Flat voiced Boost function. Add its separate EQ for each of the "Clean" and Overdrive" channels and you've got a variety of tones to that dial in easily. Spring reverb and two inputs, Bright and Normal, round out its simple, effective feature set. The V100H is ideal for live use, allowing the player to set distinct voices that can be accessed on the fly and where massive power is needed. zZounds is an authorized dealer of Crate products.

"Size Matters"
Sound: Loud; the EQ dials provide good broad range of tones. Overdrive channel is OK, but not quite gutsy enough. Run a pedal in front of it. It compared quite favorably, head-to-head, against my buddy's '80's JCM 800 through his Marshall 4x12 cab. Feature: You need the optional 3-button footswitch to fully exploit the channel-switching & boost capabilities. On-board spring reverb works fine. Boost/presence button will indeed rip your face off. Switchable watt-setting allows crunch at lower volume, very useful. Why the fan? How about a protective vinyl cover for transport & storage? Ease of Use: Although the manual is excellent, and the controls are easy to understand and use, the issue here is the head's 30" length: it is wider than most newer 4x12 cabs, and in fact, wider than most cabs period. It is, in a word, gigantic. I'm a bass-player, and bought this head to screw around with my PRS SE Custom 6-string. The head is running through a Crate 300W ported 2x15 bass cab (laid on its side, which is the only way the head fits on it) while I search for a properly sized and voiced 2x12 or 4x12 guitar cab. (I'm not impressed with the head's companion Crate 4x12 cabs, which I heard but did not buy.) Quality: The first one I bought had a dead clean channel level control. Returned for an exchange unit, which was perfectly turned out. Fit & finish are excellent. Hardware looks stout. Styling is neutral and works with pretty much any cab. I've taken it to practice, and it is so big it definitely needs a cover. I predict it will get beat to hell in transport. Value: Absolutely, pound-for-pound the best buy on the market. Do the research: 100 watts of pure tube power for this amp's selling price is unprecedented. Manufacturer Support: No experience, but the retailer's response to the non-functional level control was immediate and satisfactory. The Wow Factor: Its a great piece of kit. It has big sound, serious power. Asthetically pleasing and neutral, not wierded-out. I only hope that some day I find a cab wide enough to perch the head on without overlapping 2 inches on each side. Did I mention this head is HUGE? Overall: The head is for fantasizing about being a lead guitar player, which I'm not, and it serves that purpose well. I'm looking for a reasonably priced cab for it. I would buy another if stolen because it is a great value, and great to have around for kicks.

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.
