Hi guys and girls,

I was a long time Marshall (TSL100H & 1960A - sold to fund wedding) user, to be followed up with a stint running an Engl rig (Thunder 50 head and 2x12 cab - that just wasn't the sound I was looking for), and I've bagged myself a nice Series One 45 Combo.

To be honest, I hadn't really considered Blackstar when I started looking for a replacement for the Engl, but clicking on a couple of videos, reading some reviews and a stroke of luck lead to me getting the S1.

I love the Les Paul (2014 Gibson LP Studio in Alpine White) on all four 'modes', my 60th Anniversary Strat (MIM) loves all but the bright clean (very ice pick tone, vintage spec pickups)...I've yet to run my MIM Sambora Strat through it, that's coming later.

So yeah, a quick hello from me, I hope to get out with the S1 and play it in anger soon, I need a new band :D

Cheers,
Nick
