Anyone ever played one? How did they sound? Did it have a lot of OD/Distortion? Just curious cause I've never played a Blackstar and it looked like a pretty good deal.

good sounding amps.
cant do Modern metal w/o a boost
and too quiet for gigging(unless you mic it)

i would still go with a B-52

Yeah i have a boss ds-1 and a Digitech Heavy metal pedal for distortion but would still want a decent amount built in to the amp.

the blackstar can easily do metallica type (rid the lightning distortion)..but if u want extreme stuff u will need an OD....it has verryy nice clean and its versatile...u will need to mic it for gigs tho..thts the only setback..i have one myself..nd i luv it..

Wow thank you. Big help. I play stuff like Metallica, BLS, Ozzy, Pantera, Guns N Roses so this would probably be pretty good cause i have OD pedals.

well a B-52 has a better clean channel/ Lead channel and much more versatile than an Unmodded Valveking

And did it come with a footswitch? If so, what all did it control?

It definitely has enough gain for metal. A guy on the harmony central boards put up some clips with EMG's and it sounded really heavy.
