Guitar Amplifier
Congratulations!
You are now the proud owner of the Crate RFX65 three-channel guitar amplifier
with Advanced Digital Signal Processing. This rugged amplifier combines outstanding
features with serious clean and distorted sounds. Dual DSP controls provide 15 “Multi”
effects and 15 Delay effects which can be combined for a wide variety of sounds. The
Save/Tap button allows you to manually set the tempo of many of the effects and to
save new DSP presets in the amplifier’s non-volatile memory. A separate Reverb
control adds even more to the array of effects. Front panel RCA CD Input jacks
allow you to play along with your favorite CD or tape. The rear panel Insert Jack allows
you to connect your effects for greater flexibility. Channel switching and DSP may be
controlled by means of a footswitch, which also allows access to two DSP presets on
each of the three channels. The top-mounted electronic tuner lets you get tuned and
stay in tune any time the amplifier is on.
Like all Crate products, your RFX65 amplifier is designed by musicians, and built
using only the best components. Extensive testing confirms that this amplifier is the
absolute best it can be.
In order to get the most out of your new amplifier, we strongly suggest that you read
the information contained in this guide before you begin playing.
And thank you for choosing CRATE.

about the DSP effects is on page 7.
20: DELAY: Use this control to select one of the fifteen Delay digital effects. Complete information
about the DSP effects is on page 7.
21: SAVE/TAP: Use this pushbutton to set the tempo of many of the effects by tapping the button
repeatedly in time with the desired tempo. The Save/Tap button is also used to save DSP presets
and to restore the factory default DSP settings. Additional information about the Save/Tap button is
on pages 7 and 8.
22: SAVE/TAP LED: This LED flashes in time with the tempo set by the Save/Tap button (#21), and
serves as a status indicator for certain DSP activities (see page 8).
NOTE: For some of the DSP effects, the Save/Tap LED remains illuminated. The Save/Tap LED does not
illuminate when the DSP knobs are set to the Bypass position.
23. REVERB: Use this control to adjust the amount of digital reverb effect. In its fully counterclockwise position the signal will be “dry” (without any reverb). As you rotate the control clockwise the
amount of reverb increases.
24: CD INPUT: Use these RCA jacks to connect the output from a CD player or tape deck to the
amplifier. The signal at these jacks is combined into a mono signal which is sent to the internal power
amp circuit. Use the CD or tape player’s output level control to adjust the signal for the proper mix
with your guitar.
25: POWER: Use this switch to turn the amplifier on (top of the switch depressed) and off (bottom of
the switch depressed). The switch illuminates when the power is on.
NOTE: When the amplifier is turned on, the Save/Tap LED flashes for one second before the amplifier is
operational.
26: ELECTRONIC TUNER (cabinet top, not shown): The electronic tuner is active whenever the amplifier is
turned on, providing constant, “real-time” tuning. The bottom row of LEDs indicate which note (string) is being
tuned. The top row of LEDs provides directional queues to facilitate quick and precise tuning of your instrument.
The indicated note (string) is properly tuned when only the center LED is illuminated.

27: FUSE: The fuse protects the amplifier from damages caused by a faulty AC power source and/or other problems. If the fuse opens, replace it ONLY with the same size and type. If fuses continue to fail, check the AC source
– if the source is okay, contact your Crate dealer for service information.
28: EXTENSION SPEAKER: Use this jack to connect the amplifier to an external speaker cabinet. This jack is
wired in series with the internal speaker(s) which remain active when an extension speaker is connected.
29: DSP A/B FOOTSWITCH: Use this jack to connect one of the footswitch cables to the three-button footswitch
(supplied). This allows you to select between two presets for each of the three channels. Additional information
about the operation of the footswitch is on page 9.
30: CLEAN/SOLO/RHYTHM FOOTSWITCH: Use this jack to connect one of the footswitch cables to the threebutton footswitch (supplied). This allows you to remotely switch between the Clean and Distortion channels and
between the Solo and Rhythm channels. (See page 9.)
31: INSERT: Use this jack to connect an external signal processor to the amplifier. Use Crate’s STP201, STP202,
or STP203 stereo-to-mono Y-cord or an adapter such as Crate’s YPP117 and two 1/4” mono signal cables to connect to the effect as shown below.
32: AC LINE CORD (not shown): This grounded power cord is to be plugged into a grounded power outlet, wired
to current electrical codes and compatible with the voltage, power, and frequency requirements stated on the bottom panel. Do not attempt to defeat the safety ground connection.

Storing Your Own Presets:
Each channel of the RFX65 has two factory assigned DSP presets, as shown on
pages 10 and 11. No matter what the settings of the DSP controls, the preset is recalled
when a channel is selected. You may change the DSP settings by rotating the DSP controls - these changes will remain active until a different channel is selected, but will not
be there for later use unless they are saved. To save a new DSP preset to a channel,
first make the desired DSP changes. Then press and hold the Save/Tap button for about
three seconds. The Save/Tap LED will flash through three quick sequences, indicating
the preset was saved. The new preset is stored for that channel and will remain in memory until a new preset is stored for that channel or the factory presets are restored.
We recommend making copies of page 14 of this guide for the purpose of writing down your own presets.

Restoring the Factory Presets:
The factory assigned DSP presets may be restored, erasing any changes you have
made. Turn the amplifier off. Press and hold the Save/Tap button as you turn the amplifier on. The Save/Tap LED will flash through two quick sequences, indicating the factory
presets have been restored.
More About the Save/Tap Button:
The Save/Tap button is used to set the tempo of an effect by pressing it twice within
a one second time frame. The time between the two taps sets the timing of the effect. If
the Save/tap button is pressed an odd number of times (once, three times, etc.), the timing will default to the maximum one second time period.
The Multi effects and the Delay effects may each have a different tap speed. The
default “target” for the Save/Tap button is the Delay control. To select the Multi control as
the tap button’s target, rotate the Multi control. The Save/Tap tempo function will automatically revert back to the Delay control 16 seconds after the Multi control is rotated, or
when the tap speed was last changed for the Multi effect.
NOTE: In most cases, it is usually more pleasing to the ear to set a slower tap speed for the HI effects and
a faster tap speed for the LO effects.

Guitar Amplifier
Using the Footswitch for More Presets:
The Crate three-button footswitch supplied with the RFX65 allows access to an additional DSP preset for each channel of the amplifier. When the footswitch is connected to
the amplifier as shown below, the “original” DSP presets are active for each channel
when the #3 footswitch LED is illuminated. These are referred to as “DSP Bank ‘A’.”
When the #3 button is switched and the LED is out, a second DSP preset may be stored
and recalled for each channel - “DSP Bank ‘B’.”
NOTE: DSP Bank “B” presets are only accessible when the footswitch is connected to the amplifier. When
the footswitch is not connected, only DSP Bank “A” is accessable.
This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation
is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may
not cause harmful interference, and (2) This device must
accept any interference received, including interference that
may cause undesired operation.
