"Nice!!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I already own the Club 50 with 2x12 cab, the HT-5 head, and numerous Blackstar pedals. I wanted to get something that was easier to transport. I have had it one day and I think it is a great amp, especially for the name and the price! I have not used the insider software option (probably won't), but I have found the amp easy to use after the initial learning curve! I am very satisfied with my purchase!!!

"Awesome amp"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I play at a church, I run my guitar thru a line 6 helix. I go stereo thru the house mixer for the recording but for the live sound i go thru the Blackstar amp. It sounds awesome and it just cuts thru the mix. I have it at half way volume setting at it doesn’t distort in any way. I would recommend this for any guitarist playing at church.

"Impressive amp, sketchy software"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This is a solid amp that produces great tone. The stereo effects are impressive. Build quality appears to be good based on first impressions. It is large and heavy compared to most solid state units, which I like. You must provide your own USB cable for computer/DAW connections. The user guide is pretty basic, not written in Chinglish but definitely not published by Blackstar in the UK.I returned this amp after only a handful of short practice sessions. It died during my first attempt at using the included Blackstar Insider software. Connecting a laptop by USB cable brings up a message that a software update is available. If the update from the Internet fails for any reason, your amp becomes a large door-stop. Also note that (1) a laptop or desktop is required - no tablet or phone compatibility. (2) Windows 10 is not supported according to the Blackstar website (Windows 8 max). (3) running the software in a virtual machine environment is not recommended. I was looking forward to working with custom patches and lots of experimentation. Will not be buying anything with Internet based software again!
