very solid built little amp,very precise clean build from what is easily visible ( did not open up back to view guts) size makes sense for home player.
the impact of the gain switch on the tone killed it for me, sounds like a very cheap fuzz box.
With a channel and master volume, I felt like I had to turn it up much to loud to get a good tone.
Ships back to Sweetwater tomorrow, I have the new Blackstar HT 20 mk II pre ordered, this scales down to 2 watts, and I believe it will feel much more like my new Club 40 mk II.
That's a bummer. It's so cool looking and the early demos looked so good. It's always a hassle having to return gear. I saw the BS 20 mkii coming out too and am attracted to it too. 2019 look like it's going to be a good year for moderately priced amps with good features.

No hassle at all Sweetwater is the real deal when it comes to customer service.
I pointed out that I pre ordered the Blackstar 20 and salesmen said forget about the return shipping fees.

Don’t base that on my experience
I’m not well versed in amp tweaking
And felt it wasn’t for me
I really like my Blackstar and when they released the new HT 20 it was an obvious decision for me
I think it is a very solid build and had a good warm clean tone with my Guild Starfire
I just had trouble get the grit tone with my other guitars
I believe member Seven is thrilled with his
I believe it would be unfair to say that is a general miss based on my experience or that it’s a hit based on Seven’s experience
