Since 2004, Blackstar has been specializing in solid-state and tube amplifiers that allow guitar players to capture the exact sound they had in their head. Over the years their state-of-the-art amp models have earned the praise of many top-recording artists. In fact, Blackstar's extensive roster includes everyone from Al Jourgensen of Ministry to Frank Bello of Anthrax and Dave Ellefson of Megadeth. With names like that, you can bet that the amplifiers here are more than capable of making your performance explode with power and incredible tone.
So which amp is best for you? That'll depend on your own aspirations and preferences. If you're looking for something to jam with in the garage - or if you play small to medium-sized venues - a combo amp would be a great way to go, and Blackstar has a wide range to choose from. Just take a look at the Venue Series HT Stage HT-60 60W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp. Delivering top-notch tube power through 2 high-quality Celestian speakers, this combo features a "boutique" style clean channel that's extremely versatile. Additionally, the overdrive channel has its own EQ section and a "Voice" switch that allows the character of the channel to be changed, giving you an impressive variety of overdriven sounds.
Now for those who really want to knock the socks off their audience, check out Blackstar's heads and cabinets. The Series One 100 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head boasts superior tone and flexibility, while its DPR control gives you the option of reducing to 10 watts for studio and small venue work. It even has effects loops and MIDI switching to further expand the possibilities of what you can do once you plug in. As for cabs? Turn your attention to the Series One 412A/B 240W 4x12 Guitar Speaker Cabinet. Constructed from premium grade materials, this finger-jointed birch-ply extension cabinet projects a killer vintage tone in both angled and straight-fronted formats.
And these choices are only a taste of what awaits you in Blackstar's selection of guitar amps, so be sure to spend some time in this section and browse everything they have to offer. For guitarists who like to crank the volume and play it loud, there's nothing quite like plugging into an amplifier from Blackstar, and any one of the models here will be sure to blow you away.
