No, we don't harm helpless little animals. Unless you count the occasional stray power chord that knocks Canadian Geese out of the sky. Hey. It's not like they submit a flight pattern or anything. "Test Animals" is just our little pet name for all those folks that make Blackheart what it is. Sometimes it's an artist, sometimes it's special people on the BHE staff that lend their time for hours of extensive late night "rockability" tests, sometimes it's even you.

Got a story, picture, sound clip or video of you and your Blackheart in action? Send it to our main Animal at (except videos--just give us the link) and we'll put the good stuff online. Such as...

I decided to order a BH5-112 Little Giant combo after considering what you said about the Killer Ant being more designed for driving to distortion at low volumes. Anyway, [I got the amp] and fired it up and I LOVE IT! I'm running it in 3 watt mode with the volume set about half way. My wife still thinks it's too loud, but I find it just fine--lots of good headroom in triode mode too.
I am very pleased with this amp.
