Hey guys! I'm a little confused, asking for a opinion. What you think: A blackstar ht-5 combo for 360€ or a used Harley Benton GA15 used for 90€? Of course, if i buy the HB, i would buy a OD pedal too. The Blackstar worth the 210€ more? What you think? I play pink floyd, red hot, and music styles like indie, rock alternative, and like to play some metal too.

what's your budget? There maybe some other amps you are able to get in that price range you might like better.
I really liked the BS. Really versitile. Def worth the money. Haven't played the HB
my budjet is the price of the blackstar, +- 350€
I know that the Harley Benton GA5 is basically a Valve Junior, so by that logic I'd assume the GA15 is similar to a Valve Standard. If this is the case, I can tell you that it is very, very dark sounding, and it's pretty much a clean amp. If you want drive you'll have to crank it, but it sounds really nice when you do. I don't think it's gonna be right for what you want to play. The HT-5 can cover what you want and I think it'll be worth the extra money.
The sound of the blackstar will be better?
