Title: Experience w/ Crest FA (901)
Post by: Duncan McLennan on February 04, 2011, 06:44:20 pm
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?

Thanks!

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.
