What We Think

Condition: Used, Excellent

An amp with two personalities and both of them sure do have a mean side! The Black Flag is a perfect club gig amp, loud, open, clear tones no matter what voicing section you're in. When pushed from the front end, the overdrive character distorts in a harmonically rich, not quite over-the-top growl. The clean sounds are spanky with lots of clarity in the bass too! Simple controls, and simply great sounding, a great grab and go amp that won't dissappoint.

Manufacturer's Description from Other

The rebel, the jolly roger, the disqualified racer, the unexpected...

The Black Flag was designed to be a simple, yet versatile amplifier that does not compromise on what it has to offer; a big open clean tone and beautiful tube overdrive. Small enough to transport, but loud enough to be able to play clubs. Offering qualities of both an open, British crunch and American-style bloom and chime, the Black Flag is a exceptionally three-dimensional sounding amplifier with beautiful overtones. A big harmonic sound from a small box.
