Blackstar Guitar Combo Amp Review

Blackstar First Impressions

"Good to go."

Good bundle and a lot of value in this redesign. This is in a different league though. Oh and I also bought the Blackstar foot switch. It does everything it states. And for the price, it screams BUY ME!

Blackstar Final Thoughts

"I hope it holds up."

I am shocked at how good it sounds. The sounds and tone I get out of it are amazing. I've been a music pro since 1986. It’s very clear and well balanced. It is larger than I expected from the photo.
