I will place an order for one of these today. Hopefully it'll arrive Monday as I have a day off. Does anyone have one. Seems perfect for house jams with no drummer. I am crap at Guitard but want to become a better guitarist. Tried this, a Vox modelling amp and an Orange Crush 20 in the shop. This sounded amazing compared to the Vox and because of its immediately natural tone seemed to be easier and more confidence inspiring to play.

They sound good. The 5 W version was loud enough through a decent cab for band practice in my small room with proper drums.

I had one. Super versatile and way better than the others you mentioned. Cheap too considering how good they are.

I have had one of these for the past couple of years they are a lovely little amp, and useable even with the 1w output.

Gutted. Weekend arrived. Supposed delivery day was yesterday but it still hasn't arrived. Now I am away for the weekend too so will have to wait until at least Monday night.

So, got completely fed up waiting on Rimmers Music not delivering my amp (ht1r) after over 3 weeks so just cancelled my order, only to pick up a Vox Lil Night Train head and cab for much less money. It's also a ltd edition gold one apparently. Going to pick it up tomorrow.

I am tempted to say 'physics' except that Blackstar have now released a bass version of the Fly 3, which is less than the size of a house brick!

I've just got the HT-1r rodeo version with the bigger cab and it's perfect for me, clean and dirty without 75000 combinations of effects. expensive at £294 but well worth it. B)

made up.
