I love the shell pink ones.

On another note, I've got a GAS on AGAIN for a tube amp now, really like the look and sound of the Blackstar HT 20 mkii.

It never stops.

With valve amps so cheap I’d buy used and flip until you find the one that ticks the boxes. Nothing against the HT just there is so much choice out there and the HT has its own vibe.

The club 40 I tried was a much better sounding amp and I saw one go used for around 200 recently. Clean channel is kinda sterile on the normal HT and it tries to do the Marshall thing but not as well as a DSL or Bassbreaker.

Reviews and features are great but with valve amps you really need to play a few as it’s really all about the sound.
