revolutionized amps for Metal, and have quickly become a favorite of players the world over.

It’s not hard to see why. The innovative design of this amp features two-channel amplification, and each channel is divided into two modes – “warm” and “bright”. This means that it is really easy to get a great sound that replicates all the classic tracks!

Swapping between modes is really easy, also, so if you are a lone guitarist, you can quickly swap from a crunchy rhythm sound to a clean solo with no hassle. When switched to the “bright” channel, the amp is incredibly responsive, so even if your solo is fiendishly complicated, you can rest assured that this amp will amplify it perfectly!

In addition, this amp comes with some great features:

PROS
  • In terms of distortion, this amp is hard to beat. It offers two modes, “crunch” and “super crunch”, which should tell you all you need to know about its capabilities. In truth, most guitarists will get all the distortion they require from the former mode, but if you want to go even heavier, it is nice to have the option to do so!
  • The build quality of this amp is something else. Blackstar have quickly built up a great reputation amongst gigging musicians, and the people we spoke to for this review praised the ruggedness of their designs.
  • In the unlikely event that you want an even heavier sound than this amp can provide, simply stick a pedal into the mix, and the amp will keep sounding amazing. On the pedals we tested it with, it sounded great, no matter how weird we made the sound!
CONS
  • Very few. If you are looking for an amp with more than enough power to go gigging with, this is the one.
