If you need plenty of versatility and power from your cabs, then you need a good amp head, and the Blackstar Series One Head ticks all the boxes.
The Blackstar S1-50 Amp Head delivers both Class A style tones with a bell-like ring and classic push-pull crunch depending on the mode selected. The ISF control removes the limitations of traditional designs allowing you to tune the tone to exactly the sound you are looking for, taking you anywhere from a classic British powerhouse to a modern high-gain monster! Across the front panel, you'll find a plethora of control knobs that allows you to attenuate the Clean section including: Gain, Volume, Bright Clean, and Warm Clean. The Overdrive section is equipped with Gain, Volume, Crunch, and Super Crunch. This is not a one-trick pony, and responds eloquently whether you rock a passive- or active-pickup powered guitar.
As well as giving you the ability to tear it down on stage, the Series One S1-50 also has a built-in DPR can reduce the power down to a manageable 5-Watt output. Whether you're practising at home, or looking to overdrive the amp without deafening yourself and others in the studio, the DPR allows you to get that awesome power valve distortion with minimal fuss.
The Series Effects Loop allows you to position your desired outboard effects between the pre- and power-amp stages, whilst MIDI Switching capabilities allow you to connect your compatible footswitches and other equipment for ultimate control. With a whopping 128 available Program Changes at your disposal, you can truly let your imagination run wild. The Speaker Emulated output enables you to record directly to your DAW of choice via an interface, or you can even use it to run a line out to a PA.
