Here’s what Blackstar say:
Blackstar are proud to announce the limited edition Jared James Nichols JJN-20RH MkII signature valve amp head with matching JJN-212VOC MkII cabinet.
Jared has been using Blackstar for nine years to deliver his unique BLUESPOWER tone. His high-energy performances and ‘pick-less’ guitar playing technique have seen his reputation continue to grow year on year, as more people are introduced to his unique blend of blues grit and gusto, through to bombastic arena-size rock ‘n’ roll.
Designed with Jared James Nichols
Jared spent time at Blackstar HQ in Northampton, England working on the voicing and cosmetic designs to ensure this amp would deliver his sound night after night as he tours the world. The results are both sonically and visually stunning.
EL84s are at the tonal heart of Jared’s JJN-20RH MkII head. With a wider radius box, stunning racing green tolex and distinctive tilt-back design the JJN-20RH MkII is as eye catching as it looks.
Jared states, “Blackstar amps define my tone. It really is the sound in my head. It’s simple; Blackstar inspires me to play at my best. I’m absolutely honoured to now be a signature artist. I have toured around the world, always with a Blackstar amp behind me. I am so thrilled to be able to share my Blues Power tones with the world through my own signature amp.”
Matching vertical cabinet
The stunning JJN-212VOC MkII is a vertical 2x12" cabinet perfectly matched to the JJN-20RH MkII head, loaded with one Celestion V-TYPE speaker and one Celestion G12T-75 speaker. The pull-off panel on the rear allows you to easily change from a closed back for a tight low-end, to a semi-open back for a wide mid-range.
