I currently reside in Brasil, and here, things are outrageously expensive. There is currently a BH5-112 (the combo 5w Blacheart) for sale for R$1300, which is around USS700. This my only chance to get a decent tube amp, since amps are way too big to bring from abroad. Is paying double worth it?

I currently play through a MXR Distortion+ and a crate BT15 bass amp.

thanks

I heard there is uranium gas in the tubes. So you could easily make a little nuclear blast. If i were you, i wouldn't want to start the World War III.

Hmmmm thats not too bad really. Your best bet is to go online and buy it. YOull have to pay extra shipping but i still think it should be cheaper.

edit: is this a good alternative: buying a tube overdrie pedal and playing through the "Tube Instrument Preamp" amp model of Pod Farm?

I don't think I'd spend that much on it. Do you have any friends in the US that could purchase it for you, and then ship it to you. Shipping would be high, but it wouldn't be near $700.

it would be high because of taxes. Max here is USS50 (so, 350 for the blackheart + aroung 200 for shipping woul cause me too pay another 400 as taxes, making it cost 950 dollars)

If your friend purchased the amp here, and then he sent it to you, couldn't he just say it was a gift? Since the transaction would be between you and your friend, how would they know how much you paid for it? I have no idea how it works down there so I'm just curious
