    Product Description

    The Studio 10 range from Blackstar represents a stripped-back approach to timeless tone. Each of the amps features a different power amp valve, providing a tone that’s as classic as it is unique. Add striking old-school aesthetics and you’ve got a classy, professional amp through and through!

    6L6 Power

    If the EL34 growls, the 6L6 whispers softly. Known for less midrange emphasis and a smoother sound overall, it helped to define the classic American valve-amp sound. Expect sparkling cleans and responsive dynamics. Combine with a footswitchable boost, series FX loop and Celestion Seventy-80 12” speaker, and this thing practically plays itself. Plug in, turn it up and let the valve do the talking.

    Here’s what Blackstar say:

    Blackstar are proud to announce the release of the new Studio 10 amps.

    Each model is inspired by some of the most revered classic amps from the UK and USA. The refined toneand response fully captures the magic of the Class A, single-ended valve power stage.

    With the emphasis on simplicity and sonic purity, every feature has been crafted to provide the guitarist with the widest range of vintage tones, driven through a Celestion speaker.

    Drawing on visual heritage from each side of the Atlantic, the beautiful boutique styling will appeal to widest possible number of guitarists.

    This is a very simple and straightforward amp - nothing too fancy about it. The control panel is simplicity itself with controls for gain, reverb, master, and boost (which can also be controlled via the supplied foot switch). Tone is controlled by just a single knob. Separate T/M/B controls would have been nice but to be honest the single knob seems to be sufficient. Back panel has sockets for effects loop, emulated output, and external speakers. Speaker is a 12” Celestion Seventy-80. Construction and build quality both appear to be very good. The amp is covered in a cream Tolex with a deep red (oxblood?) cloth for the speaker grill. Unfortunately the Studio 10 doesn’t come with any kind of a cover so you might need to factor in a bit more cash to protect it. I bought a cover from Roqsolid for about £50. As indicated by the model name this amp has a 6L6 in the power stage. Blackstar produce two other variants which use either an EL84 or KT88. Despite being only 10 Watts but this thing is surprisingly loud. Certainly loud enough to cope with jam nights or small gigs (as long as you’re not after too much clean headroom). Anything more would have this running out of puff, but it’s easily sufficient for my modest needs. Tone-wise it’s a bit of monster. Very clean and clear. Glassy highs, rather less in the mids, then a decent amount of bass ‘thump’. Probably Fender Blackface territory. Having tried a few guitars through it I’d say it suits single-coils more than it does humbuckers (in my opinion of course). The really noticeable thing (having mostly used solid-state in the past) is just how well it responds to playing dynamics. Finally, this things weighs in at just under 15Kg, so a reasonably easy one-handed carry.

    Really pleased with the 6L6 version - it does what I want. Not much more to say!
