Boy was I surprised when I plugged into this monster. You can get mild overdrive to insane high gain, and it sounds GREAT! Definitely knocks the Marshall DSL40 and Peavey 5150 out of the water in my opinion. If you want rich cleans then get a Fender Twin Reverb. If you want to shred then get the HT Club 40. I don't use distortion or boost pedals because the distortion in this amp sounds awesome. Most people replace the stock Celestion 70/80 speaker it comes with, but it still sounds awesome with it in there. The ISF knob was another selling point to me. Turn all the way to the left left for an American amp sound, or turn all the way to the right for a British sound...or just turn it anywhere in between to mix it up. Makes for a very versatile sounding amp. Also, if you record at home then you'll love the emulated speaker input. No need to mic the amp. Just plug straight into your box with the DAW you use. The reverb in the amp is not bad at all, but if you're a reverb junkie then you'll want pedals of course. Kudos Blackstar!

Best amp I have ever played it puts every other amp to shame

BEST amp you can buy under a $1000

I am former owner of many boutique style amps. Yes, some of them had some glorious tone. This amp sonically is on par with anything made under $2,000.00. It is versatile with the clean/distortion channels. Nice FX loop. The ISF knob and help you coax some subtle differences in tone. The digital reverb is not overdone and believalbe. One of the more quiet amps I have played. Can get pretty gainey and I am not a metal guy so the drive channel lives around 9:00. I own some very nice guitars and this amp compliments my guitars nicely. I have tried to own some modern Marshall amps and they just don't live up the amps of golden age of Marshall. This amp may not have the Marshall mojo, but it beats almost any EL tubed amp under $2,000.

Best amp I've ever owned

Saying this amp is the best amp I've ever owned is a huge understatement. My previous amps have been a Carvin V3, Marshall JCM 800, Peavey 5150, Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier, and a Mesa Boogie Stiletto Deuce. This amp outshines all of the others, by far. The tone is great from bedroom levels, all the way to stage volume. I was skeptical at first of the single Tone control on the clean channel, but it proves to be the single most effective knob ever placed on an amplifier. The ISF feature is incredible, and I'm asking myself how I ever lived without it. I play in a Rock/Blues jam type band and this amp can cover anything and everything. I will be purchasing the HT 100 head within the next month. I'm now strictly a Blackstar player for life.
