Great bedroom amp

Chris437, 10.09.2013
The amp runs off two valves a pre-amp valve ECC-83 (12ax7) and a power amp valve ECC82 (12AU7). The amp has two modes Clean and Crunch which is controlled be a push in switch. When the switch is in it has heavier overdrive and out it is clean.
The clean sound on this amp is like the cleans you get from Vox and more so with the spring emulated reverb. The cleans are a bit quiet and break-up begins to occur form gain been 1/3 of the way and upwards so there is not much clean headroom.
The reverb steals the show on this amp it's the best digital built-in reverb I have heard on a small amp.
Pushing in the overdrive you are hit with nice chunky rich distortion without sacrificing note definition. The overdrive does not sound too restricted by the fact that it's an 8" speaker.
If you want an amp that will not have your neighbours mad and your girlfriend walking out on you this is the amp for you. This amp is not for gigging or band rehearsal it is for home use. Practice without causing damage to your ear drums.

lupinehorror, 12.06.2015
Why didn't I buy one of these sooner? It's perfect for me. I was using a Fender Pawn Shop Vaporiser (a 12W all tube amp 2x10) but it was just too loud for my flat. I couldn't turn it up above '1' and at those volumes the tubes really weren't bringing any tone to the sound at all. I could have turned it up but as i have people living up above me and to both sides of me I'd probably have ended up getting lynched.
So after deciding that I'd get a new amp I looked at many from different manufacturers...I started threads on forums...and after assimilating my newly gained knowledge I settled on this little lovely.
It doesn't get much more simple. All valve, 2 channels, simple controls, single speaker, headphone socket. Some may want more control over their tone but I'm happy with the Blackstar have gone about it with their amp emulation. I can get varied tones from my guitar (and/or pedals) anyway.
The clean channel is what I use most. It goes from squeaky clean up to a nice crunch. It has a warmth, and depth, that is astounding coming from such a small unit. You can plug it into a larger cab if you need more headroom.
The whole thing is well finished and weighs just enough to give you confidence about its build quality.
Home use or studio use? Get one of these. Now.
