  • unbelievable!!!

    As reviewed by geoffrey on 12/4/2009

    believe it or not, i found this little guy at a vendor for a ham radio festival. now, i was skeptical to buy it, being it had 60 hours on it. but, i got it anyways. i brought it home, finding that it smelt like a smoking room. i let it warm up, plug in my boss, and oh my gosh does it scream! the 3 watt is very subtle, very earthy round sound, turn it up a little and you have a beautiful clean tone, 5 watt is just a tiny amount of break up, but with a distortion pedal, dear god. watch out. this guy is LOUD. very very very loud. but still so sweet of a tone at that volume...

  • Great 5W Amp Head

    As reviewed by Gary on 1/16/2010

    I bought the Blackheart head hoping to enjoy true tube distortion at tolerable volume levels. This little amp is perfect. I highly recommend changing the preamp tube to a Groove Tube Gold, run it through a good 12" speaker, and you will have a boutique amp that sounds as good or better than any other more expensive amp on the market. Once I replaced the preamp tube, I was amazed at the crisp yet smooth sound of this little amp (nice work on the circuit board too). It also has great low end for a 5W amp but it breaks up a bit early if you're looking for a clean tone only.

  • Wow factor.

    As reviewed by david boone on 11/6/2011

    I am primarily a bass player that horses around a bit on guitar. I have owned a Fender Champ 600 that, while nice, was limited by its small speaker. The next step for me was the Frontman 25R with the Ragin' Cajun speaker swap. Nice little amp, definite volume that could hang with the drummer I was playing with at the time but it just lacked that distinct tube sound. Enter the Blackheart Little Giant. Wow. I am very please running the head through my 2x10 Bass Cabinet. I really like having the option of running 4/8/16 ohm cabinets on the back of the Blackheart head, having sometimes 4 or sometimes 8 ohm cabinets at hand. I also really like the pentode/triode switch on the front giving a hot five watts output with a little high end hiss or a warm, round three watts, which is maybe my favorite. Tone, tone, tone. Played flat out the Little Giant is just so full of tubey goodness you can t help but smile. Nothing else like it in the world and its about as loud as you will ever need to be at home, maybe could keep up with a light handed drummer but mic'd on stage it would be all you would ever need. The Little Giant takes pedals very well. My tube overdrive is really just wasted but a little delay gives great space and ambience to my sound. There may be a reverb pedal in my future, but the tube crunch makes no FX loop or reverb tank on the Blackheart head worth the sacrifice. Not at all disappointed after my first week of ownership.
