Pre-ordered this around three months ago and today it finally came. Sounds much better in person than the youtube clips I have watched. It's pretty small around 12" tall. It also has an 8' cord which is pretty cool. The Supro ceramic speaker to my ears sounds really good.

She is gonna fit right in with the rest of my amps! :dude:

What was your reason for getting the 8 instead of the 12?
I`ve been looking at both.
The 12 has a larger speaker, of course, and is powered by a 6L6, with 15W vs the BK8's 1W powered by more or less a preamp tube. Also is quite a bit louder and costs twice the money

And I have a Blues King 8 in a shopping cart right now but I'm not sure I'll go through with the sale. $300 in the US, but in Canada with taxes and shipping it's $480. Still, that's the cheapest I can get it right now.

EDIT: Decided to buy it.

I already purchased the 12 last year and I seem to have an obsession for tiny amps. I preordered it for $270 at just the right time before they started charging sales tax to Texas.
Tiny amps are the shit. Small size, easier to control volume, but can really wail cranked up and/or with a mic.
