I really doubt the Blackstar amp will work, it is a high gain guitar amp that would work better with a AC/DC steeler than a Jamie Johnson steeler. I'd personally walk away they are not a expensive amp by no means.

You may want to consider testing a Roland 'Blues Cube Hot'. Very light weight and sounds remarkably good for such a small, solid state unit. I did replace the speaker in mine which (to my ear) helped smooth out the high end while adding additional punch to the bass side. A bit more pricey than the 'Katana' or Fender 'Mustang' series but better sounding by far IMO.

Might be worth checking out. I have been on stage with guys who use them and they sounded awesome to me.
James Williamson plays steel and is into those amps. He would be able to tell you more.

My drummer (she also plays guitar and bass) got one of the little 1 watt Blackstar's with reverb. Last week at practice our steel player gave it a test drive. It sounded full and warm. We had it mic'ed up through the PA, but it sounded better then his usual amp.
