Krank Dirty Valve 200 Bass Rig

Yes, you heard it right... Krank Amps will be releasing a new Bass Rig called the "Dirty Valve". The first version is a 200-Watt all Tube Bass Head and a matching "Basszilla" cabinet that sports 2-12's and 4-10's which can be configured completely separate but yet in one cabinet!!

When will these be available you say? Insiders are telling me mid-April they will begin shipping to dealers!

All I can say is... LOOK OUT! This thing is awesome!!

Crate Amps- Where are they all?

Well, I have to say I am a little disappointed that there are no new Crate Amps out this year. In fact, it is a real bummer that the V-Series amps are now discontinued!

Those are my personal thoughts on what's going on right now with Crate... now, on the other side of the coin, it is a tough economy out there right now and the competition is fierce. I can understand completely that Crate (Loud) is "scaling" down for the time being in order to whether the storm.

Fortunately, Crate also has Blackheart in order to give us those great affordable all tube amps that we have been looking for. Not too mention, the BV120H Blue VooDoo is still available! And for all you Solid State users, the FlexWave Series are a great bargain!

So, as an Authorized Dealer for Crate/Blackheart, and also a user... I am looking forward to when the economy turns and I have high expectations that Crate will release some great NEW products.!
