Congratulations!
You are now the proud owner of the professional, transportable Crate BFX100T
Bass Amplifier with Digital Signal Processing. The BFX100T offers a wide selection
of digital effects designed specifically for the bass guitar, each of which are easily
accessed with a simple turn of a control knob. The BFX100T features an extended
range low frequency driver, a dome tweeter, an extremely clean power amp, and
an 8-band graphic equalizer. The balanced line out jack has a level control for pre-
cisely matching the signal to a recording console or house PA system, and is selec-
table for either pre or post EQ. The built-in limiter ensures pure, clean power even
at its full 100 watts output. An effects loop, a jack for headphones, and a jack for
an external speaker add to the overall versatility of the amplifier. The compact cab-
inet features heavy duty recessed side handles, recessed rear wheels, removable
tilt-back support peg and retractable luggage style roll-around handle.
Like all Crate products, your BFX100T is designed by musicians, and built
using only the best components. Extensive testing confirms that this amplifier is the
absolute best it can be.
