Like all the other Blackstar combo amps this one is basically about the same thing. It has a distinct tone and character that transcends through the amplifier line. These series is a bit more in price than the HT series, but to me doesn't really sound all that different.

SOUNDS

This amp is a classic Brisitsh style amp with the character style of voicing and distortion grind. What is unique to BLackstar is their ISF control that shapes the overall EQ of the amp to give a more Brisith flavor to a American metal flavor. So if you take the control all the way to the right you will get a woody British tone and if you take it down to zero you get a tighter more American sound.



OVERALL OPINION

This amp is a bit up in price from the HT so be prepared for that. At new these amps come in at around $1800. Almost double the HT series amps. To me there isn't enough difference in tone and features to get me to shell out twice the amount.

These amps are great for recording silently with the emulated speaker output. I would never recorded that way but helps for jotting down ideas late at night in a uncontrolled room.
