Gallery: Summer NAMM 2019 Day 1

The first day was full of interesting and weird gear from Mythos, Yamaha, Blackstar, Fender, and more!

One of the coolest bang-for-buck amp deals we saw at NAMM was Blackstar Amplification's new HT Club 40 MkII Kentucky Special. This 6L6-driven version of the existing EL34-powered HT Club 40 MkII features an Eminence Screaming Eagle 16 and serves up more American-style amp tones while also being able to conjure some nice British sounds via the company's tried-and-true ISF control. All for a price of (wait for it) ... $799 street.
