I Bought this amp three weeks ago, Played out live with it the following week, I've heard bigger and more expensive amps sound not even close to this. Best buy I've made in quite awhile. Love this amp
I've owned the CA30DG for the past three years, and I've taken it everywhere. The sound reproduction is absolutely amazing, especially in smaller venues (I don't even have to mic the amp - if you position it just right and aim it at the audience, you can hear it over drums). For larger venues, I would go with a larger amp, but a Crate amp nonetheless. Also, the 2 inputs also allow you to plug into the other output, which comes in handy whether you are practicing or messing around with friends, as well as providing vocal amplification if there isn't a PA for you to use. This amp is amazing if you are into solo-acoustic performances ranging from open mics to intimate acoustic sets at small local venues. Each time I've brought my crate on stage, there's always someone who comes up to me afterwards and asks me: "What kind of amp do you use? It sounds great!" The only drawback of this amp would have to be the green tolex covering. It's beautiful and I love it, but over the years it's begun to show a little wear and tear, but it also serves as proof that I'll never leave for a show without it. I've had this amp for what feels like forever, but I can't see myself playing through anything else.
I use this crate amp to play live. The equalizing features and reverb make it easy to produce a nice sound live. Works for my fiddle perfectly. It can project over a room full of people, yet light weight.
