I have been looking at the Blackstar HT-5RS and as far as I can tell it looks like a really good amp, but i cant find any reviews of it, so I was wondering what people thought about it?

Don't like it very much.

You want it to play what sort of stuff buddy?

Blues, Rock and some acoustic stuff, I also like to use a loop pedal so an effects loop would be nice. And the UK.
#5
budget?
Dunno if you'll be able to play accoustic stuff through the same amp but we could probs get you a good clean..
#6
Total budget?

I have an acoustic amp for sale, dirt cheap too.

Jet city is cool..
I bought one of the 20 watt combos
but no fx loop which is a bit lame. They sound great though.
uhhhhh
maybe wait to see if they unleash one of the 50 watt combos for under 400 ?

I was also thinking about the marshall class 5? Im really looking for a valve amp.

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

I recently bought a Class 5 and so far it has been great, I think it is one of the older ones with no 1 watt mode but I think it sounds like a 'proper' Marshall. I also tried a HT-1 but didn't really like it, sounded a bit 'sterile', possibly due to the small speaker and the ISF knob seemed to not do a lot. Obviously the HT-5 will be slightly different but I can't really comment

the class 5 is the best amp for recording IMO (if you're into the styles that marshall excels in)

For gigging, go for the Jet City 20W head (not sure the actual name of the model)
