Here's a Crate amp for sale. Sounds surprisingly good.
Good sounding cleans and a very usable overdrive.
There's a couple of horrible demos on youtube where it's dialed in as a metal sounding amp,
which it can do with gain cranked, but it has a naturally sounding distortion at lower gain levels.
Said to be kind of 'tubey' by the Crate people and some reviews. Not trying to overblow how
good it sounds, but it's a very playable amp and worth having if you need something like this for
a mere $40.

Spring reverb sounds good on it. Goes from sparce, to fairly deep. Must be the small reverb tank type, that's built
into the chassis, as opposed to the 'tank at the bottom of the amp' type. According to Crate, it is spring and not digital.

Has an input jacks for CD and headphone. Also has 1/4" speaker out if you want to run it to an external speaker,
which is nice.

The only problem it has is that the speaker can have a tinny vibration to it at certain frequencies.
I put a piece of foam between the speaker and back of the cab, pushing a little on the speaker magnet, and it goes away. It's caused by the bond between the magnet and the basket of the speaker not being as firm as it should. Just a little pushing from the foam gets rid of it. I'll include the foam piece, made from a pool, long noodle thing. (not pictured)

Here's some info from the original owner's manual I found online....
"Congratulations and thank you for choosing the Crate GTD15R Guitar Amplifier. This rugged amplifier combines outstanding features with serious clean and distorted sounds.

$40 cash. Might trade for vibe, phaser pedal. Other pedals maybe. Thanks.
