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!
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.
