Title: $99 crate power block.
Post by: kdp59 on October 05, 2006, 07:30:21 AM
Thought I'd give you guys a heads up on this. IF anyone has been thinking about the Crate power block amp, Musi 123 has them on sale right now at $99.

You might have to act quick though, last week Musicians Friend lowered the price and now it' back up to $199. So Music 1233 could bump the price back up any time.

I picked up one for my son to use as a backup amp (10 lbs) with his GNX4 processor in front (supposedly what the power block is made for). So far he says it's working great (though he hasn't put it in a band setting yet).

I just checked MF - and they list them as $99 - but they are out of stock until 10/19... Guitar Center has them for $99.

The rumor is that Crate is discontinuing them - so if you want one - get it now.
