Crate Vintage Club 50 tube 2x12 USA amp in LA for $250

This is a heck of a lot of 2 x 12 tube amp for only $250. I've seen and heard these used as gigging amps several times - replacing the speakers and one or two of the preamp tubes makes a huge bnoticeable improvement in tone as well.

Per the recommendation of my readers, I am attempting to insert a direct LINK to the CL listing for the first time on this post - we'll see if it works. - JC

YIPPEE! The LINK feature now works (thanks to Bloggers new updated editor) and You can link to the original CL post by clicking on the original post title below. I will do this from now on. - Jim C


Crate Vintage Club 50 2x12 Tube Combo Amp USA - $250 (Long Beach)

50 watt all-tube combo amplifier from mid '90s. Two channels (clean and gain), both with individual reverb controls. Two 12" speakers. Footswitch included.

This is a nice workhorse amp. Heavy and solidly built in the USA. It has been gigged on, so the tolex has some wear and tear, but nothing horrible. Can get plenty loud--would be good for blues, rock or even punk. Probably could handle just about any style except metal. Decent headroom, and the overdrive channel warms up nicely.

There has been some minor repair work done to the circuit board, but everything works fine (just want to be up front).

I appreciate your comments but please no commercial links or non guitar related conversations. Thank you. - JC


I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
