Re: Warm up a Crate Vitage Club 30
I have the vc50, the head version.  
After tons of time taken into it with a friend who is a amlifier guru, we decided that crate never really biased the tubes right.  
We put in NOS phillips tubes, and after biasing them it came to life. Right now my setup is that with a 4x12 celestion cab. One really big difference on the amp is that i have have sovtek 12ax7wa tubes but a 12ax7 elecro harmonix tube in the driver position. I can go from a twang to a dirty scream with this amp. If you take the time to love your amp, it will love you back.
