Blackstar Amps: 3 great ranges in stock now
Of course, we all know how important quality amplification is, but have you ever really thought about the technology behind the brand name and the wattage? Blackstar have.
The company is largely made up of former Marshall employees, so you know the build quality's there, but where they differ from many amp manufacturers is their focus on their own patented technology. Right down to the circuit-board level, innovations like the Infinite Shape Feature (ISF) and Dynamic Power Reduction (DPR) allow the player the tonal flexibility to really achieve the sound in their head, not the brand's standard signature sound.
There aren't many amplification companies which can boast their own owners' club, or the patronage of guitarists as diverse as members of Manic Street Preachers, Lost Prophets, Static X and Ozzy Osbourne's band. If you check out some of the details below on the ranges we've now got in stock, you'll see why.
- HTV Venue Series With the Soloist, Stage, Club and Studio models there's something to suit every live setting you'll ever encounter in a highly compact and portable tube amp.
- Series One Where power is more important that portability, the Series One is what you need, with Blackstar's ISR and DPR technology providing outstanding tonal flexibility.
- HT-1 On the other end of the scale, the HT-1 range has all the tonal qualities of the award-winning HT-5 valve amp in a tiny 1 watt format - Premier Guitar summed it up, calling it "the amp equivalent of that little poodle that bares its teeth at Rottweilers"!
You can see all of these over at our Blackstar page.
