What Reidys say...

"Make way for the most sophisticated range of digital amps on the market - the Blackstar Silverline series. It’s never been easier to dial up boutique valve amp style tones. Consisting of four combos, one head and a cab, the new Blackstar Silverlines represent some of the most advanced technology we’ve ever seen in guitar amplifiers. What only adds to that is the fact they’re incredibly easy to use. No menus, no screens - everything’s there in front of you to give you a massive range of incredible tones. Plus, just look at them!

Designed by the same team that designs many of Blackstar’s valve amps, the Silverline range takes up where the ID:Series left off, giving players the feel, response and dynamics of a valve amp in a flexible, yet user-friendly digital package. Combine your chosen preamp with your chosen power amp stage in the Response section, add some studio-quality effects into the mix, season with some of Blackstar’s famous ISF patent, and you’re ready to go, all via Celestion speakers."

Rated at 50W, the Silverline Special is ideal for jamming with other musicians, or for low-volume gigs (if your drummer thinks they’re John Bonham, you might want to look at the Deluxe or Stereo Deluxe for more power). It’s also small enough to keep at home as a practice amp, without it taking up too much space. Regardless of what style of music you’re playing, the Blackstar Silverline can tackle it, all whilst giving you the feel and response of a valve amp (and without the back-breaking weight of one), thanks to the amazing SHARC DSP processor. Plug this into your computer to use Blackstar’s INSIDER software to further edit your sounds and to use the amp as a recording interface."

The new standard in digital guitar amplification, the state-of-the-art

Blackstar Silverline Series

Blackstar are proud to introduce the stunning new Silverline series of guitar amps. Building on the critically acclaimed ID:Series technology, these digital amps feature a unique dual patent design, with a high-powered SHARC processor to deliver uncompromising tone for every playing style. Using patented TVP technology, the Response control delivers the dynamics, sag and break-up of 6 classic valve power amps. Combined with 6 unique Blackstar Voices, ISF tone shaping and studio-quality effects these amps give you the tools to achieve the sound in your head. USB connectivity and speaker-emulated outputs make it simple to capture your tones in Super Wide Stereo at home or in the studio. Blackstar’s new Silverline Series are the only amps available today that combine high-end digital flexibility, with stunning boutique style and guitarist-friendly controls.

      processor) delivering world-class, boutique sounds in
      an easy to use ‘traditional’ amp format.

      - ISF for the ultimate user sound customisation.

      - TVP powered Response control for valve amp

      flexible digital platform.
