    Janelle,

    Does the Limo do a good job of projecting an acoustic sound?

    I have a Crate Taxi (little brother to the Limo) and one thing I have found is that you need to turn down the High and Mid-High settings. Keep them at around 2 or 3, tops. This has been true for me with hooking into house systems as well. Otherwise the upper strings tend to have a harshly bright overtone that comes through. I don’t know if this is true for the Limo though. I may upgrade to one of these in the future.

    I love my Crate Limo (and the Peavy solo amp before that). “Treble” and “bass” make sense to me, but can someone please explain what “gain” and “shape” mean?

    Karen,

    What size venues can the Taxi handle?

    I have used the Crate Limo for several years with a Fishman pickup and pre-amp.
