Want to win a Blackstar St. James? Now is your chance!
**Promotion has now ended**
In association with Blackstar Amplification, Kenny’s Music are excited to announce a new in-store competition where entrants can win a St. James 2×12 combo.
When it comes to tone and that all-important ‘feel’ factor, great valve amps rightfully remain the ‘gold standard’.
The trouble is that great ones capable of delivering 50 Watts or more are all back-breakingly heavy.
Until now… enter St. James Series – the lightest 50 Watt valve guitar amps on earth.
Blackstar St. James
Here’s what Blackstar say about their innovative St. James amps:
“When it comes to tone and that all-important ‘feel’ factor, great valve amps rightfully remain the ‘gold standard’. The trouble is that great ones capable of delivering 50 Watts or more are all back-breakingly heavy. Until now… enter St. James Series – the lightest 50 Watt valve guitar amps on earth”.
“Hundreds of hours of critical listening against the most revered amplifier references mean St. James raises the sonic benchmark again. In addition to the obvious tonal differences between EL34 and 6L6 power valves, both of the St. James designs are honed to their own particular use case”.
“The St. James EL34 is the amp for Classic tones combining world-class British Crunch and jaw-dropping, very US-sounding Cleans. The 6L6 version has the same clean headroom, but this is coupled with Blackstar’s highest gain Overdrive circuit to date”.
“St. James amps are packed with cutting-edge features to deliver class-leading recording performance. From 50W, 2W and SAG switchable power modes, to an inbuilt reactive load that routes the post-power valve output signal to the amp’s three direct recording outputs (XLR, Stereo Line-Out and USB) for truly authentic ‘amp-in-a-room: feel”.
“The sound from these recording outputs is derived from Blackstar’s state-of-the-art and fully customisable CabRig DSP speaker simulator”.
