Blackstar Series One 50w Head
The Series One 50w is a versatile amp designed to produce the ultimate guitar tone and built to withstand the rigours of touring. Featuring Blackstar's ISF control, DPR Control, Footcontroller, MIDI Switching, Effects Loop and an emulated out, you are sure to build your perfect set up and nail your own tone.
With its dual patent design, Series One raises the bar for valve tone and flexibility. At home, in the studio or on the road, our award-winning Series One valve amps will always deliver. Whether its build quality or tonal excellence, no compromises have been made - if you are looking for the ultimate, professional high gain valve amplifier, why compromise? We didn’t.
By switching both preamplifier and power amplifier parameters the Series One 50W delivers both Class A style tones with a bell-like ring and classic push-pull crunch depending on the mode selected.
The DPR system allows you to vary the amplifier output down to 10% of its rated power without any loss in tone or valve reliability. Pure valve output distortion and compression at any volume - a dream come true.
The Series One offers the ability to control channel selection via MIDI Program Change messages and interfacing with most MIDI controllers is a straight forward process. The Series One can be placed in a MIDI chain allowing you to simultaneously select a channel on the amplifier and change the patch on a MIDI effects processor connected to the effects loop. There are 128 available Program Changes, giving you the possibility to access a vast number of tonal combinations.
