Crate FlexWave FW412A Review

This is a real workhorse, which will go on gigging long after some other amps have given up. If you are looking for huge power in a gigging amp, this Crate amp is a great option โ€“ capable of taking up to 125 W of input, it will go incredibly loud.

Note, however, that this is not a combo amp, but just a cabinet. Crate follow the old-school path of selling their cabinets and heads separately, but this will pair well with any Crate head unit, and in fact most head units generally.

PROS
  • If you like the sound of Crate amps, which typically sound particularly filthy when playing hard rock, this is a good option. Especially when pushed to its volume limit, the amp distorts in a really satisfying manner.
  • The slanted enclosure means this amp can also do service as a monitor cabinet, increasing its flexibility.
  • The amp cabinet is remarkably compact, given the power generated.
CONS
  • Very few. This might be one of the most expensive Crate amps, but considering the power you get, it is good value.
