microphones, with phantom power on the
Low-Z input. The third “Aux” channel allows
the use of a rhythm machine, background
tape, or another mic or instrument.
More power: twin 50-watt RMS power
amplifiers drive a specially designed dual
voice coil 12” low frequency transducer for
plenty of volume and low end punch.
Still more: The master section features
reverb and effects return controls, a five-band
graphic EQ, and the master level control. A
footswitch jack on the rear panel provides
control for reverb and chorus. Level-controllable XLR and 1/4” balanced line outs allow
you to patch into house sound boards or
recording consoles, plus an effects loop linein/line-out setup allows connection of external effects.
esigned for the performing artist,
Crate’s CA112 Acoustic Amplifier
gives you more of what you want.
More power. More clarity. More control. And,
more freedom. Imagine: microphone quality
sound, without feedback. And without being
“chained” to a mic stand!
More clarity: a separate 25-watt RMS
power amp drives a highly efficient Piezo
tweeter for clean crisp highs and natural
midrange blend. A tweeter level control on
the rear panel allows you to adjust the high
frequency output to suit your taste.
More control: three independent channels,
each with its own gain and reverb/effects
controls. The main Instrument channel features an “Active/Piezo” switch to properly
match the pickups of your instrument, plus a
three-band rotary EQ with variable contour –
for total control of the critical midrange frequencies. An easy-to-use feedback elimination
circuit with frequency select and cut controls
lets you kill feedback without sacrificing
sound quality. Plus a footswitchable chorus
with depth and rate controls.
The Vocal/Aux channel offers both low
and high impedance inputs for both kinds of
The CA112 was designed, evaluated, and
tweaked by musicians and music loving engineers. Highly sophisticated computer driven
assembly machines and highly skilled assemblers use only the finest components to produce each amp. Every cabinet is hand-built
and hand-covered by trained craftsmen. The
final assembled product is tested – and played
– by skilled musician/ technicians. It is only
after the amplifier has passed this barrage of
picky people that it gets packed up and
shipped out.

The Instrument channel:
1: Input. The signal output from your acoustic instrument may be connected here by means of a shielded instrument cable.
2: Active/Piezo switch. Use this switch to select the type of pickup on
your instrument. For active electronic pickups, set the switch to
“active” (switch out). For passive/magnetic pickups, set it to “piezo”
(switch depressed).
3: Gain. This serves as the input level control for the instrument channel
of the amplifier. For the best signal to noise ratio set this control so the
Peak LED (#4) flashes when playing your instrument fairly hard.
4: Peak LED. This LED flashes when the signal level into the preamp
approaches clipping. Adjust the Gain control (#3) until a strong signal
from your instrument causes this LED to flash.
5: Low. This serves as the instrument channel’s primary bass control.
Adjust this control to get the best sounding bass response for your
instrument. Excessive boost of the low control can cause an unnatural
howling and should be avoided.
6: Mid. This serves as the instrument channel’s primary midrange control. Adjust this control to get the best projection and midrange tones
for your instrument. The center point of the mid control is chosen by
the setting of the contour control (#7).
7: Contour. Use this control to set the center point of the mid control
(#6). Set this control at the frequency which gives you the most natural-sounding midrange tones.
8: High. This serves as the instrument channel’s primary treble control.
Adjust this control so your high notes and harmonic overtones are
lively but not overpowering.
9: Freq. Use this control along with the Cut control (#10) to eliminate
instrument feedback. For information on the proper use of this control, please read the section entitled “To Eliminate Instrument
Feedback.”
10: Cut. Use this control along with the Freq control (#9) to eliminate
instrument feedback. For information on the proper use of this control, please read the section entitled “To Eliminate Instrument
Feedback.”
11: Rev/Eff send. Use this control to adjust the amount of internal reverb
and/or external effect (if used) for the instrument channel.
12: Chorus On/Off switch. This switch, when depressed, applies the
internal chorus effect to the instrument channel.
13: Chorus Depth. Use this control to adjust the magnitude of the chorus
effect. Rotating this control clockwise increases the intensity of the
effect.

14: Chorus Rate. Use this control to adjust the rate of the chorus effect.
Rotating this control clockwise increases the rate at which the effect
occurs.
The Vocal/Aux channel:
15: Low-Z input. The signal output from a low impedance microphone
may be connected here by means of a shielded, balanced microphone
cable terminated with an XLR connector. The Low-Z jack has 15 volts
phantom power applied to pins 2 and 3. (Mics not requiring phantom
power will not be affected.)
16: Hi-Z input. The signal output from a high impedance microphone or
a line level signal may be connected here by means of a shielded signal cable terminated with a 1/4” tip/sleeve connector.
17: Gain. This serves as the input level control for the vocal/aux channel
of the amplifier. Adjust this control for the best mix with the signals
from the other channels.
18: Rev/eff send. Use this control to adjust the amount of internal reverb
and/or external effect (if used) for the vocal/aux channel.
The Aux channel:
19: Hi-Z input. The signal output from a high impedance microphone or
a line level signal may be connected here by means of a shielded signal cable terminated with a 1/4” tip/sleeve connector.
20: Gain. This serves as the input level control for the aux channel of the
amplifier. Adjust this control for the best mix with the signals from the
other channels.
21: Rev/eff send. Use this control to adjust the amount of internal reverb
and/or external effect (if used) for the aux channel..
The Effects Section:
22: Rev Ret. Use this control to adjust the amount of the internal reverb –
the further you turn to the right the deeper the effect.
23: Eff Ret. Use this control to adjust the amount of effect applied from an
external signal processor (if used).
The Master Section:
24: Graphic EQ. Use these sliders to control the output frequencies indicated below each control. The center position of each control is flat (no
boost or cut). Use the graphic EQ to adjust the output of the CA112 to
best suit your tastes and to compensate for room acoustics.
25: Level. Use this control to set the overall output level of the amplifier.
26: Power Switch. Use this switch to apply power to the amplifier: the
amp is on when the top of the switch is depressed, off when the bottom of the switch is depressed. This switch will illuminate when the
amplifier is on.

33: Line Out Level. Use this control to adjust the output level of the line out
signal. (This control works independently from the amplifier’s master
level control.)
34: Tweeter Level. Use this control to adust the signal output level from the
CA112’s internal tweeter. Rotating this control counter-clockwise
reduces the tweeter’s output level.

Note: This is a STEREO jack: tip controls the chorus, ring controls the
reverb, sleeve is ground. Use only a footswitch equipped with a stereo
1/4” plug.
28: Effects Loop Send. When using an external signal processor, connect
this jack to the input of the effect by means of a shielded signal cable.
29: Effects Loop Return. When using an external signal processor, connect
this jack to the output of the effect by means of a shielded signal cable.
30: High Z Bal. Use this jack to connect a high impedance, line level signal
to a house sound board, a recording console or an external power amplifier by means of an 1/4” stereo plug-terminated cable. (Ring is signal +,
tip is signal -, and sleeve is ground.)
31: Low Z Bal. Use this jack to connect a low impedance, line level signal to
a house sound board, a recording console or an external power amplifier by means of an XLR-terminated cable. (Pin 1 is ground, pin 2 is signal
+, and pin 3 is signal -.)
32: Ground Lift. This switch, when depressed, electronically disconnects
the low Z balanced output jack’s chassis ground connection. If you experience excessive noise when using the low Z balanced output jack,
depress this switch.

One of the most common problems encountered when amplifying
acoustic instruments, especially in small environments, is feedback.
Acoustic instruments typically have inherent qualities which cause resonant feedback at specific frequencies. Instrument tone controls and sound
board equalizers are helpful in getting rid of the problem, but they typically operate around relatively wide frequency bands. This almost
always means the musician must sacrifice sound quality in his quest to
do away with feedback. Crate’s feedback elimination circuit isolates only
the offending frequency. Consequently, instrument feedback from the
amplifier can be eliminated without affecting the overall sound.
Chances are, you may not have a problem with feedback at all. In
that case, set the amplifier’s Freq and Cut controls fully counter-clockwise. However, if you do encounter feedback while playing, set the Cut
control to -30dB (fully clockwise) and adjust the Freq control until the
feedback is gone. Reduce the Cut to the 12 o’clock position and readjust
the Freq control as needed. Continue reducing the Cut control and readjusting the Freq control until there is no more feedback with the Cut control as far counter-clockwise as possible. This approach effectively eliminates instrument feedback without sacrificing the quality of your sound.
