Congratulations!

You are now the proud owner of the Crate RFX65 three-channel guitar amplifier with Advanced Digital Signal Processing. This rugged amplifier combines outstanding features with serious clean and distorted sounds. Dual DSP controls provide 15 Multi effects and 15 Delay effects which can be combined for a wide variety of sounds. The

Save/Tap button allows you to manually set the tempo of many of the effects and to save new DSP presets in the amplifiers non-volatile memory. A separate Reverb control adds even more to the array of effects. Front panel RCA CD Input jacks allow you to play along with your favorite CD or tape. The rear panel Insert Jack allows you to connect your effects for greater flexibility. Channel switching and DSP may be controlled by means of a footswitch, which also allows access to two DSP presets on each of the three channels. The top-mounted electronic tuner lets you get tuned and stay in tune any time the amplifier is on.

Like all Crate products, your RFX65 amplifier is designed by musicians, and built using only the best components. Extensive testing confirms that this amplifier is the absolute best it can be.

In order to get the most out of your new amplifier, we strongly suggest that you read the information contained in this guide before you begin playing.

And thank you for choosing CRATE.
