Product Description

Do you want a 100-watt guitar amp capable of delivering monstrous high-gain tones — all in a portable, pedalboard-friendly package? The Blackstar Amped 3 is just what you need! This 3-channel monster is designed to become the beating heart of your pedal rig, and can be used in a variety of ways. Run the Amped 3 into a cabinet like a conventional amp head, go direct to a front-of-house PA with convincing speaker emulation, or plug straight into the front-end of a traditional amplifier. Whatever your choice, Blackstar's innovative Amped 3 ensures that you can take your sound with you anywhere!

Power reduction down to 1W and USB-C connectivity means that the Amped 3 is equally at home in the studio as it is on the stage too, while additional player-friendly appointments include 6 voicing options (2 per channel) for even greater tonal versatility, built-in reverb, footswitchable boost, and an FX loop for your favourite external delay and modulation pedals.

Key Features

  • Performance-ready, programmable 100-watt guitar amp pedal with 3 channels, boost and configurable reverb (via free Architect software).
  • Unique high-headroom design delivers full power and optimum tone with any 8 or 16 Ohm cabinet setup.
  • Response control delivers three distinctly different and authentic power valve flavours: EL34, EL84 and 6L6. Each setting delivers the response, dynamics, sag and break-up characteristics of the selected valve power amp.
  • Blackstar's patented ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) tone control takes you from a USA to UK sound at just the twist of a knob!
  • 3 footswitchable channels, each with 2 voicings allowing you to dial in your perfect tone. Presets can be stored and recalled directly from the Amped 3.
  • Programable pre or post boost, including level control and dedicated footswitch.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Manual mode turns Amped 3 into a what-you-see-is-what-you-get "traditional" amp.
  • Small enough to fit in a backpack or a large gigbag pocket!
