Blackheart B5112 Tube Combo Guitar Amp with Eminence Speaker is a pure representation of the unparalleled attention to detail and the drive to produce boutique quality at awesome prices.
Every feature of the Blackheart B5112 Tube Guitar Amp Combo represents zealous dedication to true quality in tone, looks and ruggedness. Under its sexy exterior you'll find a 16 gauge steel chassis, 1/2 inch corner radiuses and meticulous tolex work insuring years of reliable performance. Powered by an EL84 and voiced through a 12AX7 preamp tube.
The first instruments offered by BHE are all tube, old-school amplifiers that are built like tanks and sound as good as amps costing multiple times the price. They look cool, they exude attitude and they don't EVER compromise tone.
Pyotr Belov, whose own hand built amps have commanded thousands of dollars over the years, designs every amplifier in the infamous two-car garage. Pyotr's BHE designs begin as hand-wired, point-to-point masterpieces tweaked until they sing like little glass and metal Gods. Every single component is selected to make the best amplifier tone and performance possible and then engineered to be manufactured in quantity so that every guitar player can access a great sounding, durable and sexy little tube amp.
Pyotr personally selects a very small number of qualifying offshore manufactures and stands over their shoulders to make sure that nothing gets lost in the translation. He specifies every tube, every component and approves everything one piece at a time, right down to the piping and tolex. It's a very straightforward process that no other manufacture of high-end tube amps can say they undertake. That's no surprise when you figure that Pyotr sometimes spends weeks away from home and out of the country teaching others how to handcraft amplifiers to his expectations.
The result? A truly boutique, sexy and amazing tube amplifier without the snobby price tag.
