I was in a music store in Ithaca about a week ago and there was a Blackheart amp. I had not seen one offered for sale for a long time and had almost forgotten about them. They had a used strat for sale and I plugged that into the Blackheart and it sounded pretty good. I didn't buy it. *shrugs (just looking). Did that company go outa business? What about Crate, the parent company? Did everyone hate those amps or something? I guess I don't know anyone who has one. Is there an ETSG consensus concerning that brand? I always kinda liked the logo.
