Professional-Grade Digital Power

To deliver the kind of versatile tone that the modern guitarist demands, Blackstar have chosen to use state-of-the-art SHARC DSP processers in their Silverline series of amps.

The SHARC Processor works alongside the patented TVP powered Response feature, and helps to deliver the six distinct voices and on-board effects to a boutique-standard, but in a simple, user-friendly format.

Amongst these effects you'll find four Modulation types, four Delays, and four Reverbs, each with adjustable parameters for you to fine-tune your sound (see below for more details).

6 Distinct Voices

The very foundation of your sound will begin with the voice type you choose. These voicing options are as follows:

  • Clean Warm - Full-bodied, dynamic clean with a looser bass and glassy highs
  • Clean Bright - ‘Boutique’, with tighter bass and chiming mids and highs; breaks up when pushed hard
  • Crunch - Classic clean break-up to ballsy mid-gain crunch with a looser bass response
  • Super Crunch - Higher gain, fatter crunch with a tighter bottom-end
  • OD 1 - ‘Hot-rodded’ Master Volume overdrive with medium power amp damping
  • OD 2 - Mid boosted, articulate hot-rod overdrive

Choose the voice you want, before fine-tuning with the on-board EQ, and the patented ISF and TVP functions, and you're ready to rock!

Dual-Patent Design

Blackstar Amplification’s patented ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) control marks a real breakthrough in tone shaping potential.

Using the ISF control you can alter the response of the three control tone stack between the US type response at one end and the UK type response at the other with all the nigh-on infinite tone choices between them.

In addition to the spectacular tone-shaping properties of the patented ISF control, the Blackstar Silverline series also come equipped with the patented TVP Response function.

True Valve Power

Thanks to the patented TVP (True Valve Power)-based Response control, you can add the characteristics of your favourite valve amps onto your Silverline Standard's voice.

Whether you want the classic British Class A/B crunch tones of an EL34, or the tight, bold and dynamic Class A/B sound of a KT88, this patented control can take you there and beyond.

Recording And Re-Amping

If you want to record directly to your computer without having to use a microphone or audio interface, the Silverline Standard will allow you to via its on-board USB socket.

Thanks to this USB connectivity you can record and even re-amp your signal with ease, laying down those tracks into your DAW of choice with just a few quick clicks.
