Blackstar Silverline Special 50W 1x12" Guitar Combo Amplifier




    Get True Boutique Character, Tone and Response with the Blackstar Silverline Special 50W 1x12" Guitar Combo Amplifier

    Introducing Blackstar Silverline, the world’s only zero compromise, boutique-level digital guitar amplifiers. Crafted with players in mind, Silverline combines next-level DSP, player-friendly features, and plug-and-play tone sculpting in a stunning-looking line of stage-ready amps. Whether you’re in the studio, onstage, or practicing at home, are the amps for the job.

    When it’s time to push some air, you want the Silverline Special. With 50 Watts of power emanating out of a 12' Celestion V-Type speaker, the Special boasts enough volume and headroom to equal any similarly powered valve design. Ideal for live players that need a wealth of tones on demand, it’s loaded with six easily adjustable voices, six Response settings, and 12 studio-grade onboard effects ready to answer the call. Pair it with Blackstar’s FS-10 4-button footswitch (optional), and swing from ambient cleans to sustaining leads in an instant.

    INCREDIBLE TONE, ON DEMAND

    • The dual-patent design Silverline series delivers an astonishing breadth of industry-leading tones with a twist of a few knobs. And with 128 onboard preset locations to store them in, it's like having access to a warehouse of high-end gear with push of a button.

    6 PROPRIETARY PREAMP VOICINGS

    • With six finely tuned preamp voicings – Clean Warm, Clean Bright, Crunch, Super Crunch, OD 1, OD 2, Silverline puts your favourite tones at your fingertips. When used in conjunction with Blackstar's patented ISF control, you can easily tailor your tone to perfection.

    PATENTED ISF CONTROL: THE SOUND IN YOUR HEAD

    • Blackstar's proprietary ISF control works with the onboard EQ, sweeping from clear and open USA tones to the midrange punch of the UK’s most iconic amplifiers, and everywhere in-between. The whole tone stack response is moved, yet the tone controls remain fully interactive.

    NEXT-LEVEL TOUCH RESPONSE: THE SPIRIT OF VALVE

    • Thanks to a high-performance SHARC processor and patented Blackstar TVP technology, Silverline's Response controls delivers the nuanced feel, vibe, and response of six of the most coveted valve power sections in the world - KT88, 6L6, KT66, EL34, 6V6, EL84. Plug in, select the perfect setting for you, and experience the pure tone of your favourite amps with more detail than you ever thought possible.

    BETTER BY DESIGN

    • Designed by the same team responsible for Blackstar's acclaimed valve amps, the state-of-the-art Silverline models have the intuitive control of a traditional amp with the huge benefit of being fully programmable. The high-performance SHARC DSP platform runs algorithms that recreate analogue circuit parameters with supreme accuracy right down to component level. These are not modelling amps in the usual sense of the word - Silverline amps provide stunning boutique "valve tone" on a highly powerful and flexible digital platform.

    STUDIO-GRADE EFFECTS

    • As with every aspect of the Silverline series, the onboard modulation, delay, and reverb effects, all based on classic and boutique designs, are the perfect blend of pristine sound quality and effortless control. Even with four of each effect type, two knobs are all it takes to find your perfect settings.

    GENUINE CELESTION SPEAKERS

    • Silverline is the new standard in digital guitar amplification. So we outfitted the Special with the standard in guitar speakers, the Celestion V-Type. With its balanced sound and singing mids, it’s the perfect choice for translating Silverline's wide breadth of tone.

    ALL IN ONE RECORDING SOLUTION

    • Silverline is a simple and inspiring way to capture your tones in the studio. Whether taking a line from the combination Phones/Emulated output, using the plug-and-play USB recording interface capabilities or mic'ing the speaker, Silverline makes the perfect studio companion.

    DEEP EDITING WITH INSIDER

    • Silverline is the most intuitive, boutique-level digital amp on the market. But plug it into your computer via USB, and Blackstar's free INSIDER software unleashes a world of deep-editing, preset organisation and patch sharing that gives you total control of every aspect of your sound.

    FRONT PANEL HACKS

    • Press and hold Tap then turn Bass, Treble and ISF controls to access Resonance, Presence and Middle parameters respectively. Press and hold Tap then turn FX Level to fine adjust Modulation speed and Delay time.
