Vintage 2001 Crate Tube-Type Made-in USA Amp

I have two remaining "Made-in-USA" Crate amps: the Tube-Type "Vintage Club" # VC508.  This unique amp has a single 12AX7 pre-amp tube, driving a single EL84 power amp tube, into an 8" Celestion speaker.  No built-in effects; just a pure 5-watts of tube pre-amp or power-amp overdrive; your choice; it's all in how you dial it up!

It has three knobs: pre-amp gain, active shape tone control, and master gain.  You can add your favorite pedals, as the line-out doubles as an insert jack (or, run your guitar into your pedal board, then into the amp input).  This is a great studio guitar amp, yet if you want to use this amp on stage, you simply run a Shure SM57 in front of the hot English speaker out to the PA!
