So I've been looking at amps a lot and I think that the Blackstar ht 40 mkii was right for me. The only problem is that I live in a tiny town in the middle of nowhere and can't really try it out. I'm going to be playing progressive metal, so I need the clean and distortion channels to sound good. Does anybody have any experience? And if you have a better amp at the same price range than I'd like to hear what it is as well.
