Dead Mint Condition
First off, let me say that this amp is one of a kind with a master volume that actually works, which is not a feature of the standard Blackbird vs.2 that Ben made. Ben told the previous owner that if he were to make one amp for himself it would be like this one.
Now for the general tone stuff: If you want glorious blackface tone to spare then this is the amp for you. With all controls @12 o'clock the sound is tight and responsive with some nice sustained compression on barre chords and great harmonics and sustain on single-note runs. When the volume is bumped up to 2 o'clock the sustained single notes cross over into singing musical feedback that can be beautifully controlled. When used with the master volume you get a simply perfect blend of natural crunch and singing, musical sustain with a presence that hits you right in the chest. It's also extremely stomp-box friendly. The bright switch is kind of subtle but really jumps out when used with distortion pedals or master volume. The mid-control allows you to dial in a thick well-defined tone with out any hint of mushiness. This amp if great for both studio use or small club gigs. Overall it's a special one-of-a-kind tone monster.
