Blackstar has made a huge splash on the amp world in recent years. They have made great sounding fantastically priced amps for the masses. The price is what is so amazing to me. The amp sounds so very good and to keep their prices for a multi channle combo like this under $1000 is remarkable.

This amp is so versatile that is makes me wonder how they keep their prices so low. I have a theory but either way the most important thing is how does it sound. The tone from the cleans all the way through the crunch and up to the high gain sounds very usable for gigging and recording.

SOUNDS

The first channel is amazing on its own and then to have another channel for high gain tones just blows my mind. Then to top it off with a speaker simulated output for recording, just makes this amp so versatile that I wanna buy stock into Blackstar. All seriousness though the amps high gain tone is just so fun to listen too.

I like this amp with any guitar you throw at it. However, my personal favorite is the tone you get from a Fender Stratocaster or Telecaster. Something with the body and pickups of the single coil just jump out at me. Humbucking pickup guitars sound great as well but there is something magical that I hear with those particular guitars.

OVERALL OPINION

For the money it really doesn't get any better than this. At new these amps come in at around $900, which is a steal in my opinion. Having a two channel amp with s many voicing options and outputs makes this amp a must own for anyone needing a serious gigging or recording machine.

I would recommend this amp to anyone needing a good British voicing mutli channle amp who might be on a budget. These are great for recording and even practicing in your home or office.
