    Darren used one to, uh, loosen the support beams in Kevan's basement a few years back, with a Source Audio Multiwave Distortion in front.

    My old HT-5H wasn't too dark; I just kept the ISF more towards the British side of things.
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"... and I'll look down and whisper "No.” ― Alan Moore

    Dude, it's a fucking Blackstar. Get over it. I've literally never seen anyone get their tip wet over a new Blackstar. They're cheap import amps that are largely mediocre.

    I had an ht5, it was fine but that's all.

    The artisan 100 was the loudest fucking amp I've ever played through, I stuck a ts in front and it was literally soul shaking.

    These are my opinions on blackstar.

    They're not bad. They're not great. That's pretty much what mediocre means. For as much as they cost, I think there are better alternatives.
