High-end digital SHARC processor
1 x 10" Celestion VT-Jr speaker
Patented TVP and ISF technology
"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."
This is the 20W combo, fitted with a 10” Celestion VT-Jr speaker. It packs an amazing punch for a relatively small amp, largely thanks to the SHARC DSP processor that’s inside it. This is what gives it the feel, response, dynamics, tone and perceived headroom of a valve amp. It’s so easy to use - if tiny menu screens aren’t your thing, then this is worth checking out. The Silverline Standard covers everything from sparkly cleans to chunky distortions - it’s the perfect practice amp for at home or for jamming with your friends (though if you’re gigging, you might want to look at the Special or Deluxe). The fact you can plug it directly into your computer also means it’s a handy recording tool as well."
