I've been on the lookout for a used Blues Cube Hot basically since the start of the p******c that dare not speak its name. For some reason, used ones at reasonable prices have gotten really scarce over the last year and a half. They're easier to find in blonde tolex, but I wanted black. Since this is a thing I want rather than a thing I need, I could play the waiting game until the right one came along. Complicating matters was that I really wanted the KT66-emulating Boss Drive Special, not the standard BCH. Those are even scarcer than the originals. (Which is not to say they're rare - I can't believe that's true - but people who have them seem to hang onto them.) Last week, a black BCH showed up on Guitar Center's used gear list in very good condition at a price I haven't seen for over a year. It was listed as the standard version, but at that price I decided to click the button and grab it while the grabbing was good. The big box arrived today, and my jaw dropped when I finally got it free from about 20 layers of bubble wrap. It IS a Boss Drive Special - a little fact the GC listing neglected to mention. If I'd been after the standard BCH, that might've been a deal-breaker. Not mentioning it in the listing was terribly sloppy work on the part of GC, but their oversight put a giant on my face. This is a glorious-sounding amp. All the praise for these online is 100 percent true, as far as I'm concerned. I'll be selling several other amps to give this one pride of place in the music room. And, of course, pics to prove it happened.
