A very balanced solution for home practicing an recording as far as quality and price are concerned. Very durable and solid outside with a super good leather hand strap and some really good tolex work all around. Since this version has no reverb, a really good boutique reverb pedal is required to make this unit shine, especially on the overdrive channel. The features are good, especially the separate gain and volume controls, as well as the isf feature which does really good eq emulation. I think that this unit misses a tone control, to give it more sparkle aside of the overall character that the isf gives. No standby button, but I think it is not necessary since the wattage is low. Otherwise surprisingly good and versatile cleans, as well as modern type drive sounds. I would also like a channel switching footswitch. The emulated output gives some stereo reverb and would serve as a gigging backup if connected at a loud PA.

Perfect practice Amp

This Amp is awesome! Big congratulations to Blackstar :)

The tone making process is as easy as talking. You wanna have a british sound ? Turn the ISF nob to british! You wanna have an american sound ? Switch it the other way around.

It has to channels. One for clean and crunchy and one for overdriven til distorted sounds. I really love the sound of the clean one. It's warm and easy to set up.

It is no bad reason that the Amp only comes with 1 watt because it is f***in loud!

Another reason to buy this amp is, for me, the output on the backside which is for connecting to cabinets so you can play in the practice room with your band mates and can compete with the drummer :)

I bought this amp in 2012 when I needed a good and a small amp for practising at home. It has Knobs for gain, volume, EQ and a overdrive select button. I boost the amp with Harley Benton Vintage Overdrive (Will do a review of it too) and it sounds great!

Awesome practice amp

First of all, actually getting this amp delivered was a pain. I was at work when it was delivered and received an invoice from the courier telling me that I had been informed as to where the package had been left. However, when I got home there was no note through my door to explain where the package now was. After knocking on the doors of all my neighbours to no avail, I decided it must have been dropped off at the depot, but it was now too late to phone and ask. I then dropped by the depot the next morning before work (and the nearest post office which happened to be on the way, just in case), but again to no avail. 2 days later, I then received a letter from the courier telling me that it had, in fact, been left at a different post office out in the suburbs which was a bus ride away (I'm not sure why they didn't leave it at either the bigger post office which is a 5 minute walk from my flat or the depot which is a 10 minute walk).

HOWEVER, I should say that none of these problems where a direct result of Thomann and were the fault of the courier. As for the product itself, it's incredible. It can go pretty damn loud for a 1 watt amp (way to loud for my flat), but also sounds pretty cracking at lower volumes so this is no problem. Of course there is also the emulated output for headphones too if I felt the need for completely silent practice, but this doesn't sound quite as good as the speaker. The single knob equaliser is obviously limited given that it's only got one knob, but it's still surprisingly versatile.

Honestly, this is an incredible amp for the price and has one hell of a bark from such a little puppy. Well worth buying over any of these daft solid state Marshall practice amps or whatever. I will be using this for recording and practice for a long time to come.

Buy one now. Just make sure you're in when they try to deliver it...
