Crate VC508 5-watt Tube Amp 1X8. USA USA Mini Tube Coolness!
Sometimes awesome tone comes in small packages. Not everyone can shoe-horn a Marshall full stack into the Man/Woman Cave (aka: the spare bedroom). For us space-challenged and volume-restricted guitar gear nerds, thank goodness for low-watt tube amps like this uber cool Crate VC508 in blonde tolex.
Proudly made by Crate in the USA, this 100th anniversary NAMM model packs 5 watts of creamy tube tone into a combo that is just 12-by-13-by-7.5 inches and weighs just 18 pounds. Don't be fooled by its smallish size, however, as it is plenty loud and delivers tons of edge and crunch through its 8-inch custom Crate speaker. The VC-508 keeps it simple with volume, tone and gain knobs and a line out jack. It has a metal grill to protect it against bumps, shoes and wayward objects. This is a great amp at a great price.
