“FlexWave is a rugged, roadworthy line of amplification equipment that features the amazing tone of the FlexWave Evolution 5 preamp,” said Paul Meisenzahl, Crate product manager. “We designed the FlexWave line for guitarists who need consistent, superior tone from their stage and practice amps.”
The combos and heads feature FlexWave Evolution 5 preamps with Sequential Cascading Gain™ technology and 3-band EQ for precise tone shaping. The 65-watt and larger models include onboard Digital Signal Processing (DSP) effects. Crate’s legendary Channel Tracking feature automatically remembers which DSP effect is assigned to each channel. All FlexWave cabinets, combos and heads are covered in rugged Tolex™ vinyl for ultimate durability.

Since its first amplifier, Crate has made innovation the norm and the player its priority. As avid guitar players themselves, Crate engineers build the gear they want to use. Their musician-first philosophy produces rugged, versatile amps appreciated by players of all genres. Nearly 35 years ago, Crate changed the music market with stripped down, ready-for-the-trenches designs. Now, with that same aggressive approach to sound, Crate directs the future of guitar amplification.
