THE BOTTOM LINE
More than ever before, Blackstar has really nailed the idea of putting the power at your fingertips. This amp can be as complicated as you make it or as simple as you want it to be. Some players will be perfectly content with the incredibly usable stock sounds. Others will want to get in there and tweak each model just a little bit, while others will want to go nuts with custom-created amp/effect combinations. Whatever you want this amp to be, that’s what it is, from practise buddy to studio tool to live tonal mothership.
