The Audio Assault Blacksun will no doubt look familiar to many guitarists, as it bears close resemblance to a well-known UK-designed twin-channel amp head. The mode control allows you to voice the amp from a British to a more American style eq. This dual-channel amp is capable of delivering clean and high-gain guitar tones, so it would be a nice addition to any DAW plug-in collection.
