    So I had a session the other day recording and the engineer asked me what sound I was looking for and I told him that one of my favorite tones comes from my fuzz and little blackstar fly. He told me to go get the amp (I live in walking distance) and when I brought it back, he mic'd it up and.... WOW! The sound was amazing! We've been using this little amp with different pedals and guitars to get some killer sounds for this new project I'm working on. Too funny!

    I don't see why not. Skunk Baxter from Steely Dan used to do Elliott Randall's Reeling In The Years guitar solo into a 3 watt Pignose amp as a party trick....

    Yep, I record with my THR5. Did my last 3 albums with it.

    I just bought the Blackstar as it's the only proper amp that fits in the pockets of my gig bag. In the warmer months I like to annoy the squirrels by playing in the park.
