I may need 2 HD's run in stereo. Too bad they dont make a 30W or 50W.


the hot head is a 100w head that has a ab/a switch and a triode/pentode switch
so it can go diff watts.
* Class AB/Pentode: 100W of flesh searing power
* Class AB/Triode: 50W, tighter headroom, crisper gain, still hurts
* Class A/Pentode: 60W, lots of headroom before overdrive, nice and plucky
* Class A/Triode: 30W, less headroom, more responsive to your attack

well you should really try out the amp first using your all stock mim strat and if it doesnt sound good to your ears then you should buy the pups(the amp is the one who creates your tone mostly, but its your choice). from what i heard the mim strat doesn't have verry good pickups but TRY BEFORE YOU BUY.

Well, I do intend to try the Blackheart, but I already have a tube amp, and while the British voicing will change it, I figure if I can get a tone I love out of my current amp with a pickup swap, then it'll probably be cheaper. I do intend to try it with the strat stock though.

well, this being the first tube amp ive ever owned, i cant really say much about how it sounds. hahaha. sorry to get your hopes up with the pics only to disappoint you with my utter inexperience.

the only thing i can say is that it is really designed for bedroom prac. at full volume, it is still very much manageable and the breakup is really smooth. however, since there is no eq, you either have to be very satisfied with the natural sound or use an eq of your own.

I should've been more detailed, what's the break up go to? Classic rock/hard rock? I know earlier break up is perfect for blues.

with my pickups, i can get gentle breakup at volume 4 that is good enough for blues i think.

when you go up to 2/3, about volume 7 or 8, the breakup is enough to get you sounds that can do Appetite for Destruction stuff.

I don't think there is any significant change in amount of breakup from volume 7 to volume 10. but i say again, volume 10 paired with my 1 x 12 can still be used in my bedroom without complaint.


pardon my noobish description but my sole intention was to show off pics of my KA....

It's a good enough description for me.

Thanks, I think that solidified my buy. Now I have to decide between a distortion pedal for the V33 or a KA.

I'm planning on getting a Little Giant with the matching 112 cab. Do they handle pedals well?

Dude, I got an LG not too long ago. I absolutely love that beastly little thing.

It's so loud too! I think I've gotten some hearing damage from craking it on 3w!

What are your favorite settings? I like about 2.5-3.5 bass, 8-9 mids, and 6-7 treble, with the bridge/middle pickup on my strat.

I like the tone, but they dont have that oomph of a tube amp.

Is there anyway to give it more oomph?
