Hey UG,

Can anyone tell me the difference between these 2 amps?

or

and will these amps be loud enough for quite big gigs?

Thanks

Dunno the difference, but
a) Its a hybrid, not all tube as blackstar claims
b) 5W isnt enough for giiging/rehearsal without a PA and mics

That aside, its a pretty nice sounding amp for rock and lighter metal, though cleans are pretty bland IMO. Grab a bigger version like the HT-20 if you like its tone.

or grab the ht5r if you can work around the power limits of the ht5.

the ht5r has digital reverb too which from what ive heard sounds quite nice
