    New Amp Day

    Ed at the Guitar Dept. went to NAMM, became a Blackstar dealer and ordered a bunch of amps. I got mine the day after he got them before he even unboxed it for display. One killer tube watt. I'll probably replace the speaker in a couple weeks with a Celestion.

    Its not really that small, the PRS sitting beside it is just a supersized model

    Congratulations, Stan!

    Hmmmm.....What's that phrase? Oh yeah, "Pictures or it didn't happen"

    You're the first guy I know who's got one, so looking forward to hearing your thoughts after you've had a chance to test-drive it. Hard to tell exactly how big it is, but judging by the guitar in the picture I'm guessing it's an 8" speaker?

    I've heard awesome things about Blackstar. Even there pedals I hear are great. Nice score!

    Its an 8" and from the reviews it is the weak link in the amp. The modders seem to be using the Celestion Super 8 in its place.

    Cool, enjoy it--I've tried their stuff before--their 1 & 5 watt amps pack quite a sound and a wallop!
