    I've never had the chance to play one but was always intrigued as to why they were so cheap.

    In all seriousness, except for the high-profile endorsers maybe 20-25 years ago, with the knowledge I have now of gear, it seems more like the joke amp that was ripped on a lot and made in versions all the way up to 300 watts with like 12 tubes. Does anyone else remember that or am I misremembering that?

    Sounds great in those clips OP, very "Swedish" in that metal vibe

      Yes there was a 300 watt Crate head.

      the Blue Voodoo 1st gen is the one I have, then they had a makeover where they ditched the blue tolex and gold logo for a more rectangular Crate logo and black tolex, but the circuit stayed the same.

      Then they revised the circuit and changed the logo to the final Crate logo found on their last models, that one is the generation that had the 300 watter, I believe there was a 150 watter as well. I never played the later blue voodoo.

      I believe they were the first amps to have a backlight, now it seems light up amps are common place (Revv, KSR ,Diamond)

          finding with the amp is that it relies too heavily on its feedback loop to sound right and at low volumes it was just very anemic and thin sounding. Even when turned up it wasn't a very heavy or thick sounding amp. omegle online

            Its definitely not for everybody. It's not really comparable to a modern high gain amp without some sort of a boost. It's fun squeezing out heavy tones out of cheap/hated gear though.
