+1 blackstar. Tone right out of the box.
I like their tone. quality product
BS CLUB 40-great!
I currently own a blackstar HT VENUE STAGE 60. It is an amazing amp. It may only be 60 watts but with its 2 12" speakers it has the power that suits most situations. I never mic the amp I use the internal speaker as a stage monitor for the guitar and use the line out to front of house.
I have no personal experience with them, I do have a few friends that have given them good reviews.
