Blackstar Series One Guitar Amplifiers win Guitarists choice award!
With one of the most experienced amp design teams in the country, Blackstar's Series One guitar amps dual patent design is the result of hundreds of hours of research. The Series One line has received the prestigious choice award from Guitarist magazine.
“The build standard is very high and the attention to detail stands up to the closest of inspection…three awesome heads that round off the Series One range. If you're in the market for a new head or thinking about trading in that combo for something with a little more punch…start looking here.” Overall, the Series One line scored highly on build, features, tone, flexibility and price.
All three heads received 4 1/2 stars…you can find the full review in the September edition of Guitarist magazine!
The Patented DPR power reduction system in the Series One range allows reduction to any level down to 10% of the rated power with no loss in tone or valve reliability, and the Patented ISF control provides tonal flexibility beyond that of any traditional tone control system.

“The Series One 100 is the one of the best sounding amps that I've played through. It produces a powerful, punch, smooth, warm and precise sound.”
