Versatile Workhorse of an amp
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
Pros: 3 channels good cleans and ODs Quality digital reverb Lots of ways to customize tone Plenty of power Cons: The footswitch that changes amp channels is connected to the amp with a 9 pin DB9 cable, for those of us with little previous experience with this, a printer cable. The pins that this cable thread into are routinely threading out of the amp and pedal every time I take the cable off. The footswitch itself does it's job well but is not great quality. My clean button went out in under a year. Wish there was an individual EQ for both overdrive channels instead of one EQ for both channels. Potential Upgrades I almost immediately replaced the stock Celestion 70/80's with some Warehouse Guitar Speakers (ET 65 and Retro 30). The 70/80's combined with the amps overdrive were mid-heavy and the new speakers restored some low end and sweetened the clean tones. I don't consider this in the review grade as it is my personal tone preference.

Not as great as I hoped
What is your opinion of this product?
I've got years and years with all types of gear and live playing experience. I guess I let the other reviews put this unit up too high on a pedestal. Clean is decent and punchy. Honestly, the OD and distortion comes out as sounding... solid state? I dunno, but something doesn't quite sound right. Attempted changing speakers, and preamp tubes. Same. Maybe my hearing is just fried. In any case - sorry, not a huge fan. Has been relegated to practice rig. Also, this is a good lesson - as which tones you as an individual are happy with will be very subjective, always always demo a rig before mail ordering the thing.

AMAZING AMP and LOTs of Tones
What is your opinion of this product?
I play in a Classic Rock Band in Florida. Playing everything from Beatles to Van Halen. I don't need a board of boost n distortion pedals with this amp. EVERYTHING you can think of in just a finger tip away. This amp is built like a TANK, yeah it's very heavy but I play in Florida. Almost all of our gigs are outside, rain, heat and HUMIDITY. I have NEVER had a problem with this BlackStar and seriously thinking of buying a few more. I am constantly asked by fellow guitarists about my Blackstar and I tell every single one of them BUY ONE!!! I have been playing guitar for more than 50 years and I have played and paid for everything you can think of. If you want the ULTIMATE versatile amp this is the one. Clean, Crunch and Super Drive is all there. YEs, there is one drawback, the footswitch should be a 1/4" stereo cable but other than that, yes it's worth every penny. I have had my HT Club 60 for over a year, 80 shows(mostly outdoors) and NEVER had a problem.

As Advertised!
What is your opinion of this product?
The Blackstar HT Stage 60 sounds great, was able to quickly dial in a plethora of tones, the clean channel is, well, clean, and the voice button lets you quickly shape sound you're looking for, the 2 OD channels are just awesome, and it's real easy to dial in a great tone, it's as quick and easy as it gets. The ISF knob is the secret sauce, gotta hear it to appreciate the nuances of American/British tone paradox. I'm glad I got this amp, does what it says, and I can't wait to melt some faces!!!

Great Amp
Your general opinion of this product.
This is a kick a$$ amp. Plain and simple. Better sounding than a Marshall I used to own. The clean tone is great for blues leads and sounds terrific on the neck pick up of my PRS. The versatility is also amazing. All 3 channels are great and the tone can be finely shaped. Its a killer amp with no effects hooked up. The built in reverb is pretty good also. The emulator output in the back produced a great recorded tone too.

Find the tone trapped in your head!
Your general opinion of this product.
This amplifier is a tone machine! It seems as though the guys at Blackstar really did their homework when making decisions where to cut costs. Yes, there are some components that could be better such as the stock tubes and speakers BUT those are the parts that we as consumers can change out ourselves so it did not bother me. Also, it is voiced very well and sounds wonderful in stock mode so unless you are a truly picky player, I doubt you'll even need to mod the amp whatsoever. All in all, I am really impressed and it has become my main stage amplifier. I play rockabilly, doom, and hardcore punk. Does everything supremely.

Awesome
Your general opinion of this product.
It may have been a bit much to purchase as an amp for a person just starting out playing guitar, but once you crank the volume and strike your first note, you'll be in love.

Almost - but not quite...
Your general opinion of this product.
I've heard peopel extol the wonder of Blackstar's tone, and heard others bag on its circuits. My experience is that I have fairly well stopped playing my JCM800 2210 and this amp is my new mainstay. I've been waiting for my entire life to have this range of tone in one amp. The ISF feature alone is tantamount to replacing Mark II and rectifier. And - no offense to Marshall - it's lovely to have a clean channel that's honest to God CLEAN.
