Ok I got between these:

Jet City JCA20H
Jet City PicoValve 5w
Blackstar HT-20H
Blackstar HT-5H
Egnater Tweaker

I cant try them out because no where near me has any of them for some reason.


I play a mix of music that ranges:

Guns N Roses
Led Zeppelin
Blink 182
Green Day
Nickleback
Theory of a Deadman
ACDC
Red Hot Chilli Peppers
Avenged Sevenfold
Metallica
And a lot of my own stuff


I dont currently gig (never been in a band) but its not out the realm of possibilty so maybe consider that. But this will mostly be for an apartment amp. I will be running it through a 1x12.

Jet City's seem nice, but they're new and that could go 1 of 2 ways: get in while theyre cheap and be happy later! or get the first run that has bugs and/or they do slight upgrades later that makes yours suck lol.

The blackstars are just kinda expensive, but sound great on youtube (lol) and look cool.

The Egnater seems OK, but it looks hideous (not that thats a main deciding thin or anything, just saying)


anyway, sorry thats long but its all been racking around in my head so tell me your opinions!

How can you call that sexy brown box called the Tweaker hideous?

The Egnater will not do some of those heavier tones without a boost - and you can do better amp-wise for those tones anyways. Haven't tried either Jet City extensively, but you'll need a boost for that too. I'd say the only amp that will do Metallica/A7X on its own is the HT-20H. And that's probably what I'd go with.

Wow, you are dead meat on the interwebz with a list like that. Most of those are hated outside of the internet too, actually.

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

If the HT-20 is anything like the HT-60, it won't do Metallica or A7X.

hey whats wrong with my playlist!? lol

(by the way when i said nickleback it was mostly that i like the guitar sound than anything else)

if it helps i have a Vox Satchurator distortion pedal that sounds friggin sweet over a clean channel and gets VERY high gain.
