Torn between 2 amps, Marshall haze 40 and the Blackstar ht 40 club
I love my HT40. Great clean channel. I use dirt pedals thru the clean.
Blackstar hands down.
Same. Blackstar amps all the way.
Until you go and try to fix them. I've got one, post warranty on my bench that took what I think was a lightning strike. Flimsy board already showing signs of distress, surface mount components all over, proprietary IC with secret programming, absolutely no parts or service information will be made available except to captive service centers....MDF cabinet, marginally sized transformers....feh. A one shot disposable amp that'll end up in a basement or as an extension cabinet or somebody's project when it grenades.
At least you can get a schematic for the Haze.
