High quality for a small price.

Comments about Crate CA30DG Taos Acoustic Amp:

If you are not playing a moderate to large house, this is the amp for you. I just bought one today. I played my brother's in my large basement and there is plenty of gain. Easy to operate. Just took several minutes to have it dialed in. The amp has a great warm sound with plenty of bottom punch and sparkling highs with no harshness. The effects sound great too. The reverb has spring reverb and sounds a lot better than the digital reverbs I've heard. Very close to that famous Fender reverb on the Fender acoustic 30 DSP. Feedback was not a problem either. This is the best personal acoustic amp for the price I've seen.

Nice sound, hard to use.

Comments about Crate CA30DG Taos Acoustic Amp:

This little amp sounds warm and good with my guitar and Bill Lawrence pickup. Its big drawback is that the knobs are very small - kind of hidden on the back of the top - and the lack of stops, or clicks, on the effects knob makes it a real chore to find knob positions without looking. Or it's tough to know what you have dialed in without getting your head down close to read the tiny print. For the money, it does a good job, maybe with long use you can remember the knob positions without looking.

Excellent amp, great price

Comments about Crate CA30DG Taos Acoustic Amp:

This amp is a real steal. I also have a Crate CA 60D which sells for more and I like this one better. It sounds better and is much easier to lug around. It has great tone and plenty of volume for most applications. The effects are very good too. Another thing I like about Crate is their attention to detail and styling. The overall workmanship is excellent. It has a dark green cabinet with a metal screen, very classy looking.
