    TH30 vs Ironheart 60 vs HT Club 50 MK II vs Tubemeister Deluxe 40

    Hey everyone, I have a bunch of amps that have a wattage rating between 30 and 60 watts that are also similarly priced, at least here in the Netherlands. The prices range from approximately 650 to around 850 or so. I'm talking about the Orange TH30H, a Chinese made 30w EL84 (4x EL84)Orange with...

    Finally tried a Blackstar (HT Club 50 MKII), my thoughts...

    I had never tried a Blackstar amp but I did see them around often. People kept telling me to try one so I figured I'd go ahead and finally do that! So now I have the HT Club 50 MKII in the studio. I wasn't sure what sort of tones to expect. Would it sound Marshall-y or Mesa-y? I guess these...

    Joyo BantAmp Zombie vs Blackstar HT5RH

    I was thinking about getting the Blackstar head since I've always liked how Blackstar amps sounded (had a 20W a few years ago but I sold it). Then I saw some videos on the Joyo Zombie. The reviews seem decent and the amp is cheaper even when new (about 180 new with tax on Amazon vs the Blackstar...

    Anyone ever tried the Blackstar TVPs?

    Thinking on getting a 2x12 120 watt, it's solid state. I'm looking for a good amp where I can control my clean and dirty channels seperately. I just need it to sound great at bedroom and jam levels, not planning to gig. How are the clean and metal tones on these? They sound beastly for the...

    Ultimate metal speaker shootout + Zilla Cab Giveaway

    Hi everyone! I've been away from the forums for a while working on this series - it's pretty epic. So I wanted to make a reliable comparison of different speaker types in metal, as I didn't think there was anything consistent. Sure, there are demos and reviews of gear, but what about a proper...

    Advice on Amp Buying?

    Hi guys, Kinda new to this whole forum thing entirely but here goes anyway. I've recently invested in a Blackstar S1 50w head and for all it sounds good on it's own the gain stage is kinda sucky as it's just a "super crunch". Probably should have read up on that before buying it. For a good...
