Blackheart Hot Head

Hi !

I searched on the search bar but didn't found anything about the Blackheart 100H Hot head.
Maybe i spelled it wrong.. whatever.. keep reading

This is what it looks like.


I'm gonna buy a new amp
I got my eye on this amp with his matching cab (4x12)
I want one with tubes because people i know say they sound better but i never had one with tubes before.
I mostly play jazz,rock,punkrock, and metal (but not like death metal).
The blackheart hot head is a tube amp right?
Would you recommend me the Blackheart ? or what amp would you recommend me?
People at the local guitar stores say i better buy a marshall but i think they just want to rip me off to buy some 600 euros marshall head.Are the MG series any good?

If you own a blackheart hot head or a marshall MG top yourself please tell me about your experiences with it


Thanks in advance.

MGs are no good.
Also: you don't need 100w tube, unless you're playing stadiums.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

MGs are crap

the hot head is 100 watts but you can switch it to 60,50 and 30 watts also, and yes it is a tube amp.

We'll ... I don't put the volume on max...
But it isn't expensive.. it's like 550 euros for the head and 375 euros for the cab.
My budget is around 1000 euros for head&top together

I'd get that.
Even more so over the MG.
To the "I don't max volume" comment I say, it's a tube amp, they sound better maxed.
The wattage switch sounds helpful on the blackheart like. I'd still look at something more like 60watts tube personally.

How do you physically download an album? Like run your computer off a dynamo on an exercise bike?
