Blackstar Silverline Special 50 Watt 1x12" Guitar Amplifier
When it’s time to push some air, you want the Silverline Special. With 50 Watts of power emanating out of a 12” Celestion V-Type speaker, the Special boasts enough volume and headroom to equal any similarly powered valve design. Ideal for live players that need a wealth of tones on demand, it’s loaded with six easily adjustable voices, six Response settings, and 12 studio-grade onboard effects ready to answer the call. Pair it with Blackstar’s FS-10 4-button footswitch (optional), and swing from ambient cleans to sustaining leads in an instant.
NEXT-LEVEL TOUCH RESPONSE
Thanks to a high-performance SHARC® processor and patented Blackstar TVP technology, Silverline’s Response controls delivers the nuanced feel, vibe, and response of six of the most coveted valve power sections in the world – KT88, 6L6, KT66, EL34, 6V6, EL84. Plug in, select the perfect setting for you, and experience the pure tone of your favourite amps with more detail than you ever thought possible.
GENUINE CELESTION SPEAKERS
Silverline is the new standard in digital guitar amplification. To enforce this, we’ve fitted each of the amps with the standard in guitar speakers, Celestion V-Types. With their balanced sound and singing mids, they are the perfect choice for delivering Silverline's wide breadth of tone.
PATENTED ISF CONTROL
Blackstar's proprietary ISF control works with the onboard EQ, sweeping from clear and open USA tones to the midrange punch of the UK's most iconic amplifiers, and everywhere in-between. The whole tone stack response is moved, yet the tone controls remain fully interactive.
6 PROPRIETARY PREAMP VOICINGS
With six finely tuned preamp voicings – Clean Warm, Clean Bright, Crunch, Super Crunch, OD 1, OD 2 – Silverline puts your favourite tones at your disposal. When used in conjunction with Blackstar's patented ISF control you can easily tailor your tone to perfection.
ALL IN ONE RECORDING SOLUTION
Silverline is a simple and inspiring way to capture your tones in the studio. Whether taking a line from the combination Phones/Emulated output, using the plug-and-play USB recording interface capabilities or mic'ing the speaker, Silverline makes the perfect studio companion.
As with every aspect of the Silverline series, the onboard modulation, delay, and reverb effects, all based on classic and boutique designs, are the perfect blend of pristine sound quality and effortless control. Even with four of each effect type, two knobs are all it takes to find your perfect settings.
