The idea was just to have a one channel mean sounding amp for bedroom shreds and muckin' about. Nothing fancy, but I don't really need fancy when I'm just farting around at my computer desk. The flashblack is entirely optional, and in all likelyhood the whole "rig" would be served better by a boost pedal for jamming/solos.
@the grapist: I've seen/heard those before and they are cool, but they're not tiny, which is the point of this. Throw 2-3 pedals in my guitar case and go jam. Basically zero hassle moving amps or equipment since i could put my rig in my pokcets (minus the cab or whatever, but that could easily be a 1x12)
