The 15W Blackheart Handsome Devil is a combo guitar tube amp designed and prototyped in a one-car garage in Austin, Texas, by amp savant, Pyotr Belov.

The Handsome Devil combo amp evokes classic tube tones reminiscent of the great American and British amplifiers. Those were the plug and play workhorses that laid the foundation for rock 'n' roll guitar tone starting in the '60s. The BHE Handsome Devil is overbuilt to last with features and components you'd expect on a hand-built, much more expensive piece of gear.

Features dual power modes allowing the gods of rock to dial in responsiveness and headroom in either 15W or 7W output. Separate Master and Level controls put both awesome power and responsibility in the unwashed hands of mankind. 3 Bands of well-tuned EQ make for nearly infinite voicing. From big fat overdrive to plucky, just-about-to-squeal if you hit me a little harder grease, the Handsome Devil covers classic tube tone with as few knob turns as possible through a well thought out set of features in a tank-tough package.
