    It's meant for slide guitar, but I thought it's pretty cool that there's still some companies out there still making high-powered SS amps. From what I've read, it's a Class D power section, which means it'll hopefully be pretty lightweight.

    I'll never understand why amp companies will throw a lightweight chassis into a big headshell. :lol:

    I'm definitely going to keep my eyes peeled for these as those PowerSlides are REALLY fun instruments, and I've played enough Peavey amps to know, no matter the specs, it'll probably be capable of some great tones.

    Depending on the function and tone of the amp, it may be just what I need to solve some jam space woes.

    SS heads could have technically been the first lunchbox amps.

    A lot of the companies are just plain stupid.

    I'm actually intrigued by the amp. I don't really get the guitar, though. Robert's a pedal steel guy, and I've never seen him play a lap steel, much less a 6-string.

    Could catch on as a decent poweramp for modelers.

    Off topic but why the HELL did Crate discontinue the Powerblock? They'd be rolling in dough with the popularity of modelers nowadays, imagine taking an ipad with Bias and a Powerblock on tour.:lol:

    I'm betting the PowerSlide is just a marketing thing, he'll probably never actually use it minus some demos or something.

    Doubt it. Look at the size of that thing. I'd rather grab one of the numerous small bass amps if that's the route I was going.

    Because Crate ceases to exist, I think. They haven't updated their site since 2009.

    They technically still exist and are listed on LOUD Technologies page, but I don't think they've actually produced any amps since about 2012. They aren't listed under the active brands so who knows what that means. :lol:
