Experience w/ Crest FA (901)


Duncan McLennan:
My brother is building a small bass rig around a power amplifier and has found a great deal on a Crest FA901.

I realize it's not a new amp, but it's plenty of power for that application, and cheap (which is what he needs).

Roughly how old is the amp? When were they made? I would also appreciate reports on reliability, etc. from those who have used them.  How long should we expect this amp to work, considering its age?


Tony Ly:
They were made in the early 90s. I had a few and they have always worked fine. I still have a La 901 which is the same power but with the XLRs and the gain knobs are on back. I wouldn't pay more  then $150 for one.
