      Crate FlexWave Series FW120H 120W Guitar Amp Head (481053)

A tonal range from crystal clear to screaming high gain.

FlexWave120H is the perfect stage guitar stack top for the pro or semi-pro gigging musician who needs driving power, multiple channels and built-in effects. Its FlexWave Evolution 5 preamp uses patented Sequential Cascading Gain technology to pump 120W of fat, driving tone through your speaker cab. Variable 3-channel operation allows you to switch among crystal clear clean, red-hot overdrive and screaming high gain channels from the included remote. A built-in tuner ensures you're constantly in tune. With DSP effects, Channel Tracking of effects settings, and a proprietary Shape Control circuit for creating wicked custom leads, it's suited perfectly to the Crate G412A/B 4x12 cabinets.

More than 25 years of award-winning engineering prowess led Crate to develop the remarkably responsive FlexWave Evolution 5 Sequential Cascading Gain technology that yields rich, articulate tone that's fully customizable with onboard effects. Get everything from crystal clear cleans to white-knuckle distortion. For sweet tone and roadworthy construction, it's hard to find a better value.

Crate FlexWave Series FW120H 120W Guitar Amp Head Features:

  • 3 channels
    Evolution 5 preamp

  • Amen!!

    As reviewed by Strat Man on 4/18/2008

    If you buy this head you won't be dissapointed. This head is the best head in its price range. You also won't have to scrape out money for a pedal board, because this head has an overdriven channel that is good and a seperate High-Gain channel that gives you lots of sustain and gain. The clean channel is also decent if you turn down the mid eq and turn up the bass and treble eq. My only suggestion is that you buy this head and get a Marshall MG cab.

  • Get insurance

    As reviewed by John on 10/3/2010

    I recieved this amp head with the matching cabinet for christmas last year. In my opinion, it is the best sounding solid state amp head within its price rage, even compared to the line 6 spider IV 150W head and way better than the marshall mg head. a few months after playing it and jamming with buddies, the O.D. and lead channels would cut out and on. I took it back, got a replacement, and within one month the effects wouldnt save and the other effects wouldnt shut off, so i took it back again and got a differant head. I loved the sound of this amp head and the way it functioned a lot compared to other solid states. I would recommend anyone who is buying this amp head, to get some sort of insurance for it because something will eventually fail with it. If it wasnt for the channels cutting out and the effects not shutting off, i would still be using this head. I only gave it five stars because it sounded the best for its price rage and for the way it worked.

  • Effects should not be on a amp! Thats what effect pedals are for!

    As reviewed by Tim on 2/24/2011

    After my flex wave spent 2 mounths in the shop to get the effects to shut off.It finaly became the amp Ive been looking for.Ive tried many amps looking for that heavy metal sound and not many sounded as good as flex wave for the price. I love my amp now and I just hope crate will correct this problem in the future.Thanks Tim
