    Hey GP Amp people! I thought by way of introduction I'd link you to a clip of my Blackheart BH5 Giant Killer combo. I'm also in the process of testing out their new 15-watt Handsome Devil, which I hope to record and post this weekend.

    The Giant Killer is great - I sold my Fender Champion 600 recently, and can say that a 12" speaker and tone controls make a huge difference! With its 3w/5w switch, you can get great tones at quieter levels, but there's plenty of volume and headroom for band practice and small gigs (or large gigs if you mic it).

    The amp was modded to incorporate a dual rectifier, so all the tones on the clip except for the lap steel are done with the tube rectifier. I'm switching between the 3-watt and the 5-watt setting on the Strat solos, so you can get an idea of he overdrive tones this thing can produce. The lap steel is done at 3 watts with the SS rect, to show off the mellow cleans.

    Very cool clip. I've been wondering about those little Blackhearts.
