still insane, but not a million.

also note that the strat #2 reached at least 35k during the silent auction. the highest bids were at 35k after the first round. and who knows how many "silent" rounds were organised afterwards (via mail and phone).

weird.

i can still see it listed, on the last page (6): https://reverb.com/shop/the-official...rb-shop?page=6

also how does $4,500 become $4,000? this isn't some USD conversion into a different dollar, is it?

That $200 Crate used a backup for Machina was a bargain. Might have nabbed that bad boy myself if I was quicker on the trigger.

I like how the main GX15R is $6000 and the backup is $200. People don't like Machina enough for a 30x increase in price

No, they're different listings - one is in excellent condition, with no settings markings, and the other is in good condition, with BC's settings marked on it. I don't know what it is, but my currency is in USD. I'm accessing the site from Canada, don't know if that'd mess with the listings.

Seeing all of these Reverb ads with Billy's guitars in them while browsing the interwebs is funny

Not to outshine your cool new $4,500 amp acquisition, spguitar0, but I just got myself a $6,000 amp.





And best of all, I paid only $40 for it. Thanks, local Craigslist dude that also threw in a bonus Aphex Punch Factory Optical Compressor pedal at the last second (coz I guess you really wanted to get rid of your amp gear).


This Crate GX-15R is actually quite the impressive little amp, IMO. It exceeds my expectations for a practice amp, and gets some great sounds.

Here's a recording I made with it being boosted by a BOSS CS-3 compressor, and flipping through guitar pickups. Despite the phone choking on the volume (I turned it way down in hopes of preventing that) it can still be heard how good the amp is sounding.



Full signal chain is strat (pickups: Blue Lace / Silver Lace / BC-2) -> MXR 10-band EQ -> BOSS PS-5 -> BOSS CS-3 -> Crate GX-15R.

That little turd sounds dang good. Must be a hidden gem of the Crates. You should plug the headphone out into something and see what it sounds like. It might be instant Everlasting Gaze.

I hope you get more use out of it than making a 30 second vid of sounding exactly like Billy Corgan did

Don't worry. My other guitars sound insane through it with different settings.

Man. Your $4,500 amp sounds better than my $6,000 amp. How does that work?

That thing is beastly sounding - that's all just the amp's own gain? Think it's going to become your go-to amp?


Here's the Crate played through a Marshall 1960 cabinet, using the settings shown on BC's Crate GX-15R, apart from the output level, since it's late night. Also, still boosting it with the CS-3.



Strat -> BOSS PS-5 -> BOSS CS-3 -> Crate GX-15R.

It's just the amp gain on channel 3. Channel 4 gets stupid gainy.
I love the idea of the 2nd channel being low gain. It should work great in the cover band i'm working with right now. Herbert will still be my #1 recording amp i believe. I can't imagine them both together on a track.
That crate is definitely a monster! If i didn't already have an Orange Micro Dark(super cool for $180) i'd have to get one.
