Crate VFX – Reviews Crate VFX – Audiofanzine
The built in digital effects are a first for an all-tube amp design. The basic tonal voice of the VFX is excellent and gives up nice harmonic detail and sustain The seperate EQ sections [the presence and effects level control vvx5212 shared] are quite flexible and allow great tone shaping of the clean and distortion channels.
The two Eminence V-Series 60 watt speakers sound very good and match up well with this combo. There is also a series effects loop,if more flexibilty is needed.
A 16 ohm speaker out jack is also included. The standard easy rolling casters help to get this hefty combo around with relative ease. The included footswitch not only gives access to each channel,it allows two effects settings to be stored for both modes for easy call-up. The high gain tones are rather articulate in nature and are more smooth than nasty.
It reminds me of an old vintage Marshall with it’s harmonic content and smooth midrange bark and bite.

The clean channel can get everything from dark and jazzy to sparkling high end shimmer and spank. The VFX is a highly recommended 50 watt ” combo that is reasonably priced It is a bit heavy at 58 lbs I do wish that the VFX had both 8 and 16 ohm speaker out jacks that would ccrate disable the internal speakers.
I am pretty sure that the cabinet is made from MDF and not plywood The textured black Tolex looks wonderful and the chrome “V50” badge and chrome control knobs give a classy look.
The heavy leather padded handle is another nice touch.
The digital effects section is tucked neatly away from the heat of the power and pre-amp tubes. The overall consruction of the amp looks and feels to be of high quality. The transferable 5-year warranty gives some added peace of mind.
I feel that the V50 twin is a superb amp that has great versatilty and a ton of quality clean and overdrive tones on tap. If you are a guitarist that digs the British tone and vibe of EL34’s and likes to use digital effects for “soundscaping” This review was originally published on http: Did you find this review helpful?
