Product Description

The Blackstar Amped 2 is a 100-watt pedal power amplifier, equipped with drive pedals in the front-end and and an advanced effects processor that's capable of delivering the tone and feel of a traditional valve amp. You can use it to power a speaker cabinet, go direct to a PA, or connect to the input of a traditional amplifier — ensuring that you can take your sound with you anywhere. Power reduction down to 1W and USB-C connectivity means that it's equally at home in the studio as it is on the stage!

Key Features

  • 100-watt, 3-channel, performance-ready pedal power amp with onboard multi-effects.
  • Unique high-headroom design that automatically matches to the speaker impedance to deliver maximum power and optimum tone with any 8 or 16 Ohm cabinet set-up.
  • Response control delivers three distinctly different and authentic power valve flavours: EL34, 6L6 and EL84. Each setting delivers the response, dynamics, sag and break-up characteristics of the selected valve power amp.
  • Choose from USA, UK and Classic amp voicings to dial in your perfect tone.
  • 3 drive voices (Boost, Drive and Fuzz) with effects including Modulation, Delay and Reverb.
  • Pro connectivity and integration into your setup using low-latency USB audio as an interface for recording, TRS stereo line out, and XLR Mono D.I. for live use with built-in CabRig simulator technology.
  • Effects loop, two 9V DC outputs and MIDI control for easy integration into your pedalboard or rig.
  • Onboard chromatic tuner allows for on-the-fly pitch correction during live performances.
  • Universal voltage, so it can be used anywhere in the world from 90V to 264V 50/60Hz.
  • Use Blackstar's free Architect software to deep dive settings for reverb, the effects loop and more.
  • Small enough to fit in a backpack or a large gigbag pocket!

3 Channels

  • USA: Inspired by classic American amps of the mid '60s. Very clean, dynamic and bright, but with a solid low-end and controlled mids. A perfect pedal platform setting.
  • UK: A distinctive preamp based on a much-loved British Class A amplifier of the early '60s. A low-to-medium gain preamp that can be used clean, warm or mildly overdriven. Popular choice for a pedal platform or as a responsive crunch tone.
  • Classic: Based on Blackstar's award-winning cascaded valve/tube overdrive circuits and a traditional "British-style passive tone stack". Perfect for big chords and crunchy rhythm playing, with clear note separation.

Responses

  • EL34: Classic British Class A/B crunch, full-bodied soft break-up.
  • EL84: Bell-like, full-bodied Class A with lots of compression.
  • 6L6: Tight dynamic Class A/B with extended highs and lows.
