Well my Blackheart little Giant came in, I tore the box open before I had a camera so no pics yet. (I will take some tonite) I was a little suprised to see the combo version. However the combo did not disapoint!
The Blackheart looks like a million dollars. What a very eye pleasing amp! White piping on black tolex make this thing very good looking. It seems very durable and is very solid.
This amp sounds amazing! Run it wide open and you can get a fairly heavy crunch. (it did Motely Crue perfectly) Turn down you guitars volume knob and it played Velvet Revolvers "Last Fight" nice and clean. The clean arent loud enough to to compete with a drummer IMO, but with everything cranked, I think you could pretty easy. I played with the 3/5 watt switch a whole bunch, but to me when switched down to 3 it seemed to get a little cleaner (which is backwards of what I thought should happen) but it may have been because my ears were buzzing. I will play around with it some more this weekend.
This is the perfect amp to add to my collection and is just a beautiful sounding amp. Its perfect for playing at home, and it will be making MANY trips with me to my work where it will probally replace my Microcube.
I contacted Kevin and let him know that I did get the amp, and he informed me that the Head and Cab were on backorder, so he sent me the combo. He said if I wanted he will send me the head and cab and I can keep this one to play until then. So I should get to A/B demo the two. The only difference is that the combo version is open backed and the Head and cab is a closed back version.
Good job on a great amp Blackheart! It seems fitting to get a Blackheart for Valentines day!
Either way it looks like I will be getting a tattoo pretty soon!
That's awesome, some people have weird ways of getting gear I noticed. It's a cool logo for a tattoo though and for all things considered I think you got pretty lucky on this. At least they actually sent you an amp to try for now I find that especially cool of them.
