News: Blackstar reveals new Artist Series amplifiers

Blackstar has announced its much-teased new Artist Series amplifiers, the Artist 30 and Artist 15.

Official info and specs below:
Blackstar are proud to introduce the new Artist Series of valve amps. The Artist 15 and Artist 30 set a new standard in classic tone, simplicity and flexibility.

At the heart of the Artist Series lies a unique power amplifier design that harnesses the tonal qualities of the revered 6L6 valve. By carefully optimising the key power amplifier parameters of the Artist Series, the Blackstar design team has created an amplifier which has the outstanding dynamics normally associated with a USA 6L6 design, whilst adding the chime and shimmer of a classic British Class A amplifier.

The Artist Series two channels offer the widest possible palette of classic tones and each channel can beset as either a clean channel or a classic overdrive channel. With the emphasis on simplicity and sonic purity, every feature has been refined to allow a musician total freedom in shaping their own sound.

Pro features such as footswitching, reverb, master volume and effects loop augment the sonic experience, making the product completely equipped for today’s exacting performance requirements.

This flexibility, tone and quality is delivered with a visual elegance worthy of the world’s greatest stages and performers.

From the metallic thread in the classic paper fret to the embossed Blackstar detail on the luxury leather carrying strap, nothing has been left to chance in delivering the Artist Series – The New Classic.
