Blackstar Artist 15 15W Valve Guitar Combo Amp (Ex-Demo)
Condition: Ex-Demo - Shop display stock. May show signs of use but overall good condition and full working order.
The Blackstar Artist 15 is a new flagship model for Blackstar. A specially-designed power amp captures the tone of the legendary 6L6 valve, which has been combined with the chime and dynamics of British Class A amps. The two channels can both function as clean and overdrive, so you have total control over your sound. The responsive EQ lets you dial in the perfect tone without being cluttered or fussy. The Blackstar Artist 15 is all about simplicity, quality and great tone. Other features include footswitching, built-in reverb and an effects loop. Blackstar have also added a number of luxury design features including metallic thread in the paper fret and an embossed Blackstar logo on the leather strap. If you want unprecedented quality of build and sound, look no further than the Blackstar Artist 15 Combo.
The Artist Series utilises the 6L6 valves in an open loop configuration that helps to further accentuate the resonant bottom end and chiming treble responses. By doing so, this provides the Artist power amplifier a unique sound and feel, lying somewhere between the big and bold USA sound you would expect and a British Class A tone. A further benefit of this open loop design is the the increased gain produces more power amp distortion - the most natural and desirable of all overdrives.
Channel 1's stripped down channel down is simplicity itself, the Volume and Tone controls offer just the ideal amount of adjustment to the both the drive level and treble responses. With an emphasis on signal integrity, Channel 1 allows the nuances of your guitar, pedal and playing style to cut through with incredible clarity.
Channel 2 offers a new level of clean and crunch flexibility. Featuring Blackstar's patented ISF control, the widest possible variation of tone is available. When set counter-clockwise the ISF configures the tone stack to a US-style response, tightening the low mids while emphasising the treble and presence. Moving the control clockwise continuously varies the tone towards a more British-style response, where the low mids are emphasised for a warm, 'woody' clean or crunch reminiscent of classic British amplifiers from years gone by.
Both the Artist 15 and Artist 30 amps feature a completely natural sounding digital reverb, delivering you outstanding musical clean and crunch tones, while raising the benchmark for guitar amplifier specific reverb designs. With some of the best studio reverb units in the world used as references for developing the voicing, this exclusive Blackstar design responds beautifully to both the dynamic nature of clean sounds an the harmonically rich textures of crunch and high gain overdrive sounds.
Additionally, the Artist 30 also features a Reverb Dark/Light switch that allows you to modify the overall reverb characteristics to suit a wide range of playing styles and tastes. In the Dark position the reverb is voiced to be warm and mellow, while in the Light position the reverb produces a brighter tonality with more 'zing' on the reverb tail.
