I'm gigging with this setup in a couple weeks, outdoors. I play solo and use a loop station. I run the backing track through one amp and the lead track through the other. I use Celestion 70/80s (that they come with) in the Stage 60 along with a 2x12 with 70/80s. (I think these are fab speakers for this amp). I run the Blackstar 100 watt Stage head through a 4x12 of Celestion G12K-100s. I use only pedals for distortion, so I want the amps to remain clean. I'm expecting very good results. Before I bought the head, I had a Bugera 1960 head, Plexi-clone. That frickin' amp was amazing, and sounded like an old Marshall, but it was too loud and the knobs were to sensitive in the low volume range so you ended up with either 100 decibels or 1,000,000 decibels with at microscopic turn of the knob. So I had to get a different amp, cuz I can't screw around with it on stage (and balancing the 4 inputs, Bright and Normal channels). And I don't like using my guitar volume knobs, never have. It seems like it reduces the balls sent to the amp. Maybe I'm nuts about the balls (no pun there), but that's the way it seems. I use '57 Classics hums. I love Blackstar. For the money, I don't think I could do better. Pristine cleans and darn good dirty channel (although I only use the clean channels).
