The Blackstar Unity 30 1 x 8 Bass Combo Amplifier is perfect for laying down sweet licks at home or on the go. Bassists have asked the question for years, and Blackstar have finally responded with a range of awesome bass amps with one for every occasion. The Unity 30 is compact and easy to transport, making it great for taking wherever your music takes you.
Versatile input controls
The Unity 30 features a readily accessible top panel control layout, which allows you to sculpt and shape your tone with ease. Alongside the instrument input you'll find an input level switch with 0dB and -10dB options for accommodating active- or passive-powered pickups. The input gain control allows you to lift your signal to a desired level, whilst a useful clip indicator prevents you from going overboard.
The built-in EQ section allows you to shape Low and High frequency bands, whilst the semi-parametric Mid knobs allow you to deftly shape the mids with impeccable accuracy. Whether you want a loose and saturated low-end, a highly articulate and fast-paced mid-range attack, or tight highs that pop with every pluck, Blackstar have it all laid out before you to try.
Blackstar have equipped the Unity 30 with a trio of voicing options - Classic, Modern, Overdrive. In Classic mode you benefit from a valve-inspired snarl with old-school EQ settings for a thickened tone. Modern deliver high-headroom with a dynamic range to exploit and extends the EQ further. Overdrive opens a world of smooth, harmonically-rich overdriven bliss. Whatever you're in the mood for, the Unity 30 makes it easier to find the tone you want.
In addition to the voicing options, the Unity 30 features built-in switchable Chorus and Compression. Tighten up your tone or giving it that sweet, sparkling chime to help your tone pop out beautifully.
The rear panel is home to a host of connectivity options that includes XLR with ground lift, and 1/4-inch line out with independent level control. The 1/4-inch output is perfect for connecting headphones for silent practise. Blackstar have included an XLR output for connecting directly to a Unity Bass Series active cabinet. The Line input allows an external audio device to be connected for jamming along to your favourite tunes, whilst the footswitch connector enables the footswitchable overdrive and chorus effects to be accessed via hands-free control.
Solid Blackstar build quality
As we've come to expect from the team at Blackstar, the cabinet is built to take whatever is thrown its way and is the perfect home for the custom designed 8-inch speaker. You can rest assured that whatever, whenever, and wherever you play, the Blackstar Unity 30 1 x 8 Bass Combo Amplifier is always good to go.
