Product Description

Product Description

The CA15 Cimarron compact acoustic amplifier delivers 12 watts of pure musical power and has two inputs, each with its own gain control. Three bands of EQ, centered at critical frequencies, provide exceptional tone control and minimize feedback. The CA15 also features a flip-out locking bar underneath the cabinet, allowing you to tilt the amplifier back for use as a personal monitor.

CA15's handy RCA input jacks allow you to plug in a CD or MP3 player so you can practice along with your favorite music¾you can even plug in a pair of headphones. The Crate 8" woofer/piezo tweeter combination delivers smooth, pristine sound with outstanding projection and fidelity. And if you need a little more coverage, just plug another cabinet into the external speaker jack.

Why is it so hard to amplify an acoustic guitar? By its very nature, an acoustic instrument requires lots of feedback control, especially when it's asked to compete with drums and a stage full of rockers. And although most amps can effectively control feedback, they often do so by severely sacrificing tone for volume.

Our CA Series amps give you all the tone and features necessary to put your acoustic sound on top of the mix, whether you're soloing at the Opry or strummin' at the coffeehouse. With its unparalleled balance of clarity, power, natural tone, and intuitive controls, the Crate Acoustic Series remains our most widely endorsed amp line. Try one and you'll see why.

I used several small amps to try and duplicate the acoustic sound. I was somewhat close but never quite it. I got some Amazon gift certificates for my birthday this year and finally had a chance to get an acoustic amp. I had been browsing and studying the amps prior to my birthday. The Crate Ca 15 was one of my favorites because it was small, and had 2 channels. Not many have 2 channels in the 140.00 price range. I have some crate amps and knew it would likely be dependable. When I found a supplier that was selling the Ca15 for 90.00 I jumped. From previous experience, I knew I could depend on Amazon to have a dependable supplier. I got the amp in just a few days, opened the box and plugged it in. I couldn't tell you how good this amp sounded. It has a reverb as an added feature. I could use this amp for small to medium venues as well practice. It has a headphone jack and speaker out. Compared to all the acoustic amps in this price range, you just can't get all these great features.

I have used many different All-In-One Amps during the 30+ Years I have been performing! Usually to get a real good sounding and yet powerful amp, you had to lug around a heavy and bulky system. With the Crate CA15, all that has changed. Don't let the 15 watt power output throw you. This amp actually has more power per watt than my 1000 watt 4 ohm surround sound home theater! No Kidding! I used one during a gig at a local country club with about 100 in attendance, I only had to have the volume on 1.5. Hard to believe, but just 1.5 out of a possible max of 10! And it has the old fashioned Reverb effects built in. It puts out a lot of bass too! Hat's off to the people at Crate! Excellent product with ease of weight and functionality!

I bought this amp after doing research on the lower end of the acoustic amps. I decided on this one, in part because of the reviews here. However, while the amp sounds nice and true - it is not overly loud. I have to keep it on 8 out of 10 to hear it decently in my living room. Not 1.5 as the other reviewer said. At 1.5, I can only hear my guitar not the amp. At 8, I can hear the amp over my guitar. Too annoying to return, so I guess I'm stuck with it. It's not a terrible practice amp, but don't think you can bring it to a gig.

Nice amp. Wanted a small amp for the family room and my Taylor Mini (which I love). This Crate fits the bill and the spring reverb puts the amp in a class by itself for the price. That said, this is not a pure reproduction of acoustic sound like the $500 amps but close enough. I have had a million amps and currently use a Boogie Express with my Fender guitars.
The Mini and this amp make a simple, easy to move around practice setup.

Oh, baby, what a fine little amp. Has a sturdy rod underneath to raise the front for listening. Sounds great and controls do what one would expect - the control whatever frequency is specified. Love it. Hey, it's plugged in now; think I'll go play!

This is the most unbelievable amp you'll ever plug into. The little booger is not light which probably accounts for the great sound that comes out if it. Crate is the king when it comes to acoustic amps..........
