I like what I've heard from the Blackstars,
but from talking to some H&K owners (that are members here)
I'm leaning towards the Tubemeister 18.

the HT20 is a great amp:

*2 channels
*ISF feature: it's like a contour knob, adjusting the EQ, from British tones to American Tones
*Reverb is digital, it's very good!!
*Includes a footswitch to go between channels--wish it could activate the EFX Loop [and use as a solo boost--but no fear, got a BBE Boosta Grande to do just that from my pedalboard]

overall, this is a cool amp, it was my first dive into the Blackstar Club.....since then I've acquired a killer HT40, I only use the HT20 for bedroom practice, however it does have more than enough headroom to cut thru drums, bass, guitars and vocals in a band situation--dude, I say go check 'em out if you're considering biting the bullet, I highly reccomend it!

Yes, and easy to service if needed!

Blackstars sound cool but if something goes wrong...

my Blackstars works like a charm, for the most part---I even changed the tubes in my HT20 w/o fail [Mullard EL34s/power amp and JJ ECC83s/preamp]--I'd say check them out, see if you hear 'The Sound in your Head' [their motto, LOL!!]

If it's right for you Gerry, that's the ticket.

it sure is---I've gone thru so many amps like water, it's ridiculous, LOL!!
{Marshalls, Mesas, Randalls, Peaveys,Carvins, Crates---even Line 6 and Behringers]

The Blackstar is the stopgap for me....if I get another amp, it'll be the Blackstar Series 1, their flagship line
