By: Bob from South Jersey
Your general opinion of this product.
BLACKSTAR HAS SURPASSED EVERY DIGITAL TUBE AMP SIMULATOR MADE TO DATE!
With the Simplicity of Setting your tone,setting what type of Tube Tone you want,along with the TRUE VALVE in it's bag of tricks,you can adjust and tweak your tone,get the Tube Amp FEEL you want,otherwise you settle for what you get with other Digital "Modeling" Amps as far as all the Nuances only a Real Tube amp can give,and only BLACKSTAR allowing you to find your Holy Grail with the TVP and Different Tube Settings,I Don't think that Digital can Get Much Closer to TUBE than where BLACKSTAR Gets You. Along with Killer Effects and Easy Dial ins for them,This is an AWESOME TOOL for the Studio Guitarist and the Cover Band Guitarist who need More than a One Trick Pony.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
SOLID As a Rock So Far.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Warm,Harmonic laden tone,whether Clean or All Out Hi-Gain
How was the action out of the box?
How did the stain or paint job look?
How has it stood up over time?
SO FAR,SO GOOD!
