"Great little amp"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This Combo amp from Blackstar is a great, versatile little amp and it really shines on the overdrive settings while in the 20 watt mode. You are able to get just about every type of sound or tone that you are searching for with this bad boy and for being a single-speaker amp it is capable of producing nice thick tones, it's really quite impressive. It has plenty of head room and volume to gig with for small venues. The clean tones are good, but don't expect to be able to match the volume of the clean with the volume of the overdrive without having some breakup on the clean channel. Overall though I don't think you can do better considering the price for an all tube combo amp. this is a versatile tube amp that can range from zepplin-esq tones to maximum overdrive metal, you got it with this little bad boy
