Blackstar amps are an innovative British amplifier maker, specialising in both solid state and valve guitar and bass amplifiers. Starting out in 2004 from a garden shed and growing to a full factory in Northampton in a few short years, Blackstar has become a world wide name in amplification appearing on the high profile stages and festivals of the world and in the world’s greatest studios thanks to their undeniably lush sound, big signature distortion, glass like cleans and professional level reliability. With high profile users including James Dean Bradfield of the Manic Street Preachers and Bon Jovi's Richie Sambora to name a few, it says everything you need to know about the calibre of Blackstar's big valve stacks.
Blackstar amps are consistently relied upon by some of the world’s biggest artists thanks to the incredible sounds available within these industry standard amplifiers, however the team at Blackstar amplification have also catered to the budding rock stars out there and the bedroom players who want the best sound possible without having to lug around a massive amplifier cabinet. With the likes of the Blackstar amps HT range, the team have condensed that signature Blackstar Amps sound down into mini combo amps for use at home. The likes of the Blackstar Fly 3 amplifiers have also been designed to provide tone snobs (aren’t we all) with the classic Blackstar Amps sound in a highly portable practice amp that you can take anywhere.
However, when you want to go louder and rock out on the big stages, the range of Blackstar Valve amps available here at PMT includes the likes of the Blackstar Artist series amplifiers as well as the Blackstar HT Stage amps and Blackstar Artisan hand wired amplifiers – all of which will provide you with that coveted valve tone and help you conquer the music world one stage at a time – these amps are made for gigging and pumping out the big sounds you need. It's not all thundering tubes though, Blackstar developed technology to get true valve tone for modeling amps. The ID range let you choose everything from the effects down to the type of valve. There's no need for menu diving either as the most important controls are all available from the front of the amp.
If you've got the amp sorted and fancy adding valves to your effects chain then Blackstar LT pedals deliver classic flavours.
