My brother has the Blackstar HT Dual which IMO, is the best distortion pedal on the market so I kind of already had high expectations for this amp. On the other hand, there was a little part of me that was doubtful that it could deliver awesome tones for such a cheap amp. It honestly blew me away. I'm not into cleans much, but the clean sound on this amp was amazing. I was playing through the 2 matching 1x12 cabinets in case you were wondering and it was really nice. Clear and sparkly, the way cleans should be IMO. The overdrive channel was really good, the ISP control, I think it's called, is a handy little thing, that came on the stompbox too. Only thing I think it might have needed was a boost, it was just lacking that extra bit of 'oomph' that I want to my sound. It was really, really good though, and I'm seriously thinking about buying one for home use and who knows, maybe gigging and band practices too.
