Blackstar Silverline Standard 20w 1x10" Guitar Amp Combo

The Most Versatile Digital Amp Blackstar Has Ever Made!

Written by

Elliot Stent

Blackstar's stylish Silverline series encompasses the brand's most versatile guitar amplifiers to date. Building on their critically-acclaimed ID:Series technology, these flexible digital amps feature a unique dual patent design, with a high-powered SHARC processor to deliver uncompromising tone for every playing style.

The Silverline Standard 20w combo is the smallest amp in the range. However, this portable model still boasts many of the features found on its larger 50w and 100w counterparts. And with a potent 10" Celestion VT-Jr. speaker - the Blackstar Silverline Standard combo pushes plenty of air on stage!

Modern Tweakability

Using patented TVP technology, the Blackstar Silverline Standard's 'Response' control lets you emulate the dynamics, sag and break-up of 6 classic valve power amps. This includes British-sounding EL34 and EL84 valves, as well as emulations of 6L6s and 6V6s that are synonymous with American-made amps:

  • EL84 - Bell-like full-bodied Class A with lots of compression
  • 6V6 - Crisp Class A with high compression and tight mids
  • EL34 - Classic British Class A/B crunch with full-bodied soft break-up
  • KT66 - Rich and warm, vintage British ‘hot biased’ Class A/B
  • 6L6 - Tight dynamic Class A/B with extended highs and lows
  • KT88 - Tight, bold and dynamic Class A/B with strong low-end

This particular feature, combined with 6 unique Blackstar 'Voices' that range from crystal-clean to searing high-gain, makes the Silverline Standard one of the most versatile digital amps available on the market:

  • Clean Warm - Full-bodied, dynamic clean with a looser bass and glassy highs
  • Clean Bright - ‘Boutique’, with tighter bass and chiming mids and highs; breaks up when pushed hard
  • Crunch - Classic clean break-up to ballsy mid-gain crunch with a looser bass response
  • Super Crunch - Higher gain, fatter crunch with a tighter bottom-end
  • OD 1 - ‘Hot-rodded’ Master Volume overdrive with medium power amp damping
  • OD 2 - Mid boosted, articulate hot-rod overdrive

Built-In Effects & More!

On top of all this, there's also an 'ISF' tone-shaping control and studio-quality modulation, delay and reverb effects. This makes the Silverline Standard combo an all-encompassing workhorse for recording and live performance, especially with 128 onboard patches that let you save and recall your favourite tones (FS-10 footswitch sold separately).

USB connectivity makes it simple to capture your tones in wide stereo at home or in the studio. And with a speaker emulated headphone output - you can practice silently if you have attentive neighbours!

Boutique Styling

Some guitarists are put off by the overly-modern, sterile styling of today's digital modelling amps. That's why Blackstar has designed elegant enclosures for its Silverline series amps, inspired by some of the world's most stunning boutique amplifiers. With traditional control panel placement and old-school "chicken head" knobs too - even traditionalists will adore these gorgeous amps!
