Description

Details

The Blackstar Artist 15 Valve Combo Guitar Amplifier is a compact powerhouse that oozes with style. Blackstar's Artisan series of amps grace the stages the world over alongside some of the greatest artists, and Blackstar wanted to offer the enviable Artisan tone at a more attainable price for the rest of us to enjoy.

Breath-taking tone and power in a compact unit

The Artist 15 may be small in size, but under the hood it boasts some highly impressive circuitry that is powered by a generous valve set-up. All the power you could want it produced by a pair of 6L6 valves, and a pair of ECC83 valves - a combination that produces sweet clean tones that shine with a sparkling clarity, and respond with a hearty warmth when overdriven. Blackstar has equipped the amplifier with two footswitch-able channels to choose from. Channel one sports independent volume and tone controls, whilst channel two offers independent volume and gain controls so that you can dial it back on the amp and get an external stomp box involved.

Effects-friendly

The Artist 15 has a built-in reverb effect, with a level control to dial in the exact setting that you desire. Whether you're playing in a small venue and want to create a larger impression, or want to dial it back and keep your tone tight, the reverb effect gives you the ability to inject depth into your tone. The reverb effect is also footswitch-able, so that you can control is without having to constantly returning to the amplifier during performances. For those who like to utilise external delay and reverb effects, Blackstar has included a series effects loop to satisfy the demands of all players.

Celestion V-Type Speakers

The Blackstar Artist 15 delivers a very smooth output thanks to the 12-inch Celestion V-Type speaker. In an effort to bring together their collective experience in speaker analysis and design, Celestion built the V-Type to deliver a sublime balance that draws on old and new techniques, and the results are astounding. The V-type produces a tonal delivery that is sweetly balanced, with cleans that ring true across lows, mids and highs, bearing enough upper-mid to high-frequency sparkle to guarantee spectacular clarity and definition. Throw up the overdrive and the mids shine through with a thick slab of energy that gives you rhythm and lead tones a huge presence. For players who like a bit of variety, this is the speaker for you.

Blackstar's Infinite Shape Feature (ISF)

As well as a powerful three-band EQ that allows you to shape your tone using Bass, Middle and Treble controls, the Artist 15 has been equipped with Blackstar's patented ISF technology. Different amplifiers have their own unique tone control network, which gives them their characteristic 'voice'. The incredible powerful ISF control allows you to adjust the response of the tone control network within the Artist 15 to access an infinite range of voicings, taking you anywhere from American-style to classic British amps.

Completing this excellent model is a sophisticated black covering around the enclosure, with black paper fret and silver thread acting as the speaker grille cloth. Black chicken head knobs adorn the Artisan-style panel. This is an elegant and understated visual masterpiece that boasts some incredibly powerful internal wizardry. Don’t miss out, experience the joy today.
