New from Crate, the V100H (£389 UK street price) is an EL34-powered amplifier head with a half power switch, two channels and a ‘vintage´ or ‘flat´ boost voicing.

Both clean and overdrive channels benefit from separate three-band EQs, while the master section includes a global reverb control. For the full specifications, visit Crate´s official website.

Alongside the V100H head are a pair of new 4x12 cabinet designs. The V412A and V412B have a UK street price of £299 and, along with the V100H, will reach UK shores in April, available exclusively through Sound Control stores.
