    Guys....I need your opinion on amp heads.

    1 year old Bugera 6262 head(120 watts) in perfect condition...has no issues and never has....$400.00

    or

    Brand new Blackstar HT-20 Head....$499.99 w/ $100.00 off coupon = 399.99

    Any thoughts or suggestions? Besides telling me about Bugera QC issues... I already own one and never had a singel issue with it. Just looking for something with a little more balls than my current amp.

    I guess this is why you'd ask to send a photo of the guitar you'd be buying.

    I wonder if they'd custom make the body shape/colours to look more like the real thing?

    If you're not giging or anything, then go for Blackstar. I just like the tone more. Also Bugera is used... And You can get B-52 at-100 for like 600 $ which smokes bugera.

    No, I don't gig, but I think 20 watts would be loud enough. My bugera V22 is loud enough to play with a drummer.

    I have been leaning more towards the Blackstars, they are just pretty new and not sure about the build quality, then again it's that or Bugera, which has had its fair share of issues in the past.

    Its just if I get the Blackstar I will have to order without trying first, which I hate to do. Played the Bugera before and I really like the tone, but 120 watts is ALOT. From what I have heard so far on youtube the blackstar does sound very good. Has the mid-rangy marshallness to it.

    Blackstar is pretty fucking epic, if you haven't check out Rob Chappers on youtube, I think he did a review on the HT5? or something.

    Again i'm not very experienced with the Blackstar models, but I hear they love booster pedals, so make sure to get one.

    Also if you haven't heard the Bugera's are often riddled with faults and will break down. Seem to be like that for some people.

    I've a blackstar Ht 5(pretty much the same thing as the Ht 20..) and it's an awesome amp!(but,if you want a metal tone you need a tubescreamer)

    ^Aw man don't post Ola videos, that guy makes every amp sound good, you could give him a Marshall Microstack and he'd make it sound like a Dual Recto.

    Yea, I was actually just watching some of the Rob Chappers videos. Amps sounds really good on youtube.

    I have heard of the Bugera issues, but I have had mine almost 2 years now with 0 issues. But it still worries me with the higher gain models, as they were the ones with most of the issues.

    Not a big fan of the ht-5 actually. It's basically the HT-Dual pedal built into an amp. It's not like a normal valve amp. More like a hybrid(valve/ss). Does sound good though, can't deny that.

    I do have a boost pedal and eq pedal so I know shaping my tone won't be an issue. As long as there is a good tone to start with.

    I think I am going to go to music shop on Sunday and order one. I talked to them on the phone and they said if I don't like it I can get a full refund. So won't hurt to try it out.

    Plus I have been wanting an EL34 valved amp for some time, just all I have seen are 50 watt minimum. Makes me wonder how Blackstar is limiting them to 20 watts with 2 EL34 valves.

    Altitudes inspired me to try and make an entry for the Gus G contest.

    I fucked up on the last descending run but this is about as good as its going to get for me with 2 days practice haha

    Is that an optical illusion or are the frets angled?

    Fanned frets, the lower strings have a longer scale than the top strings. Good for extended-range instruments when people want clarity on the low end, but pleasant looseness on the high end.

    Looseness and playability. I have to say that at 28.625 inch scale, playing fast and well is muuuch more of a work-out. Dem stretches + tighter strings :zombie:
