The cab (Crate) is questionable. It sounds really "boomy" is the only way I can describe it. I even hooked my ss XT120R up to it hoping it was maybe just the tubes in the amp, but my XT was "boomy" as well through it. Maybe if it had some G12's it might sound better. I've even rolled back on the lows on both the amp and my 7 band eq. It's especially bassy in clean mode. Might be my axe contributing to it too though. Someones coming over tonight with an Ibanez RG and Epi Les Paul, I'm going to see how it sounds with these guitars. I've had it long enough that the newness has worn off, and I'm really starting to "listen" to it. I still like it though, best 550 bucks I've spent in a while. I'm going to go a head and replace the preamp tubes and see how she sounds then. Tonight it gets the real world acid test, jammin' with another guitarist, and it's going up against a Mesa Dual Rec. Let you guy's know how we fared tomorrow.

Always scoop the mids!!
If it ain't AIN'T music.
