Hi folks,

I'm in Europe and I've got a chance to buy this amp...but it's 400 miles drive and I just don't have time for it. Did any of you actually play this amp and how would you rate it against, say, Germino headroom or Fillmore? I own Germino club 40 head and run it thru 212 and 412 greenback cabs and love it!

Another issue is the current owner let local tech throw in 230 V power transformer and he cannot remember even which brand it is. He is sort of a collector and probably not as much of a player. My understanding is PT would not make so much difference in tone but I'm happy to hear your opinion.

The amp has been for sale for quite some time and I think I could get it for good price. On the other hand, I'm drooling for Germino 100w heads as I know how good they are....! Yet very very hard to find here.

Thanks.

Suck it up and make the drive. If you don't and buy it sight unseen and it's a dog you'll be pissed. If you don't and you miss out you'll be pissed. If you do you'll appreciate it either way.

I have never played a BLK100, but do own and play a Blockhead Custom 50. It's one of the best sounding hot-rodded Marshall type amps I'ver heard. The build quality is top notch... I've never had a failure or any issue with the amp.

In my opinion, if the price is right, you can't go wrong with any Blockhead.
