Shameless band website plug...
How about yourself?
This are my weapons of choice...
Gibson Les Paul
Blackstar HT-5 Mini Stack
I can't knock the HT-5, it's got a really nice warm tube sound to it, my dad has the combo and there isn't a hell of a lot of difference between the two to be honest. Only thing I would say is that it's not the most versatile of amps, i.e. it has no on-board effects at all (not even reverb), but I use pedals anyway so that doesn't bother me, it sounds great :)
Notice on your site you're gigging in Brum next month, might pop down for a look (any excuse to see a couple of bands!)
Would be cool if you came to our brum gig, although as it's for the national competiton "Surface Unsigned", the tickets are a little pricey (£6); which really irks us as a band. Not trying to put you off, but just a friendly heads-up.
What kind of music do you play (I'm guessing quite rocky?)
I had a Valvetronix before I got the HT-5, I liked it but I rarely used any on-board effects other than for a quick way to get a certain sound if I had an idea I just wanted to mess with without getting all my gear out.
£6 isn't too bad, is it just yourselves or a couple of bands on?
I tend to play classic rock/blues rock and occasionally mess around with some finger picking on acoustic, and lately I've been trying to teach myself slide. Problem is, I can't do any of these particularly great so maybe I should focus on one style for a while lol.
What kind of music does your band play? (I've got no speakers on my work PC)
Had another leafy one which looked minimalist with as see through as possible window borders but fancied a change. :)
Mine isn't very interesting at all at the moment I'm afraid!
Typically, we're impossible to pigeon hole!! But I guess we're a mash of indie, rock, folk, funk, with some prog and blues mixed in. Not to sound like a dick (prob too late!!), but it's best to give us a listen when you get the chance as everyone we speak to draws comparisons with different bands.
Sorry for going so off-topic everyone!!
