The Blackstar LT-Echo 15 Practice Guitar Combo Amplifier is for guitarists who are starting out on their musical journey, offering an affordable package without compromising on high quality tone. The team at Blackstar have included everything a budding virtuoso could been to hone their technique to perfection. In comparison to the LT Echo 10, this model is equipped with an additional Gain control for pushing the signal to breaking point for a raucous output. There is also an EQ Tone control for shaping the tonal output from bright to dark.
Impressive Blackstar power and versatility
The LT-Echo 15 produces a bedroom-friendly 15 Watt output (2 x 7.5-Watts) shared between a pair speakers. Though it might be small, do not be fooled, as this little dynamo packs quite a punch. Whether you're running through scales, practising a riff, jamming along to your favourite artist, or jamming with a friend, the 10-watt output provides ample flexibility to meet your needs.
Blackstar has equipped the LT-Echo with two channels: Clean and OD (Overdrive). As you may expect, the Clean channels deliver an articulate and bright, whilst OD delivers a much grittier, fatter overdriven output. The option is great for those who are looking for a versatile amp that allows them to polish their clean chops, whilst satisfying the demands of those who like to live life loud.
EQ Tone/Patented ISF control
Blackstar's ISF control works allows you to smoothly transition between a vintage "British" response with depth and warmth, to a modern day "American" sound with a tight low end response and rampant midrange energy. The Tone controls adjusts the output response from a brighter to a darker tonal output. By turning the knob counter-clockwise, greater emphasis is given to a warmer low-end energy. The further clockwise and the tone becomes much brighter and sharper sounding.
The LT-Echo 15 has built-in Delay with corresponding control pot that allows you to dial in the desired time and feedback. The further clockwise you turn the knob, the greater the time and feedback afforded and creates a spacious feel. However, if you dial in a small amount, a more slap-back type of effect is created.
The LT-Echo 15 is equipped with a standard 1/4-inch instrument input, alongside an MP3/Line input that allows you to connect an external audio device to playback for your favourite songs to listen or jam along to. For practice or recording, Blackstar has included a speaker emulated line out so that you can be sure that what you hear through your DAW monitor output, is a faithful translation of the amp signal. When you want to continue practising into the wee hours, or simply want to spare others from hearing your efforts, the speaker emulated output also doubles up as a headphone output.
The Blackstar LT-Echo 15 Practice Guitar Combo Amplifier offers everything you need to practise and record at home or on the road in a compact, durable, lightweight design.
