The best mini amp out there

I.A., 16.01.2018
I needed a small amp to put on my desk, but all the mini amps I knew of had a very bad sound. This one is different. The sound it produces with such a small speaker is stunning and impressively loud. I highly recommend that you get this bundle with the second speaker. It brings the sound quality to another lever.
It has two channels and both sound very nice. The clean channel is balanced an full and the distortion channel can produce very nice rock and lead tones.
This amp has a one knob tone control called ISF that controls the mid scoop (make is sound more British or American) instead of the usual TONE knob that cuts treble or bass one at the time. This is in my opinion more useful and you can have great and distinct tones all through the knob range.
It doesn?t have an effects loop so you may not get the best results when using modulation or time based effects but, it has a built in delay with two parameters (Time and Level) which is great and a big improvement over one parameter delays that you can find in some much expensive and powerful amps.
You can use it to listen to music by connecting a MP3 player to the Line In jack or use it to play along with your favorite band. You can also record or connect it to a mixing table to gig on bigger venues.
Can be powered with the included power adapter or with batteries, however they don?t last many hours, as expected.
The box is plastic, but it doesn?t feel too cheap. The aux speaker output is not standard so, you can only connect a speaker other than the bundled one if you know some basic electronics and build a custom cable yourself.
Bottom line, this is the best mini amp that I know of.

Okay for home practice, great for travel

esthern0len, 20.01.2018
In terms of convenience (decent tone at low volume, transportability) this amp is a life-saver. In terms of sound, however, it is not very good. In terms of its features (EQ, overdrive, delay, headphones/EM out), it is okay.

I use this as a practice amp in an apartment building with thin walls & ceilings, and for that purpose it is great. At low volumes, I can get a decent and consistent enough tone to be able to experiment with my pedalboard. It is small enough to travel with easily, which is great as I occasionally spend time abroad.

However, the tone gets muddy and inconsistent at higher volumes, especially in the bass frequencies. And don't expect high volumes from these speakers either, they are certainly not loud enough for any live situation. Though you can probably use the EM output to run it into a mixer or PA, I would not recommend purchasing this amp for that purpose.

The single mid scoop EQ knob will allow you to dial in some different, though limited, tones, and there is also an overdrive switch which I don't much care for, as I have pedals for that (though again, at higher volumes neither will sound very good). The built in delay is a nice feature, as you can control both delay time and intensity, though honestly I would have preferred reverb.

You CAN use these as computer, smartphone etc. speakers as advertised, but they do not sound very good, nor very loud. All dedicated computer speakers I have owned in a similar price range sound vastly better (and louder) than these Blackstars. Also, the volume control on the amp will obviously not affect mp3 input, which, again, makes them inconvenient as computer speakers.

All in all, I somewhat regret not having saved up a bit more money to buy a Roland Micro Cube Bass amp or something similar, which you can also use live. On the other hand, I'm spending 5 months abroad next year, most likely in a student dorm, and this is probably the best sounding amp I could easily and reliably bring with me, so it really depends on your needs!
