Blackstar Amps have officially just announced their newest line of amps: the Studio 10 Series. This new edition of 10-watt, Class A tube amp combos feature a footswitchable boost, series effects loop, studio quality reverb, and a whole lot more to boot. The series includes two models, the Studio10 EL34 and Studio 10 6L6, each designed to fully capture the magic of the Class A, single-ended tube power stage. Check out the new model demos below!
The Studio 10 EL34:
“Influenced by history’s most iconic amplifiers, the 10W single-ended Studio 10 EL34 is a low gain, classic British crunch amp with an EL34 in the power amplifier and an ECC83 in the preamp stage, resulting in a flawlessly boutique, sultry crunch. This model includes a footswitchable pre-amp Boost for an authentic classic rock and indie rhythm tone and articulately powerful blues leads.”
The Studio 10 6L6:
“Influenced by history’s most iconic amplifiers, the 10W single-ended Studio 10 6L6 deploys a 6L6 output valve and an ECC83 in the preamp stage to give this amp a distinctively American bright clean sound and searing lead tone. The built-in overdrive circuit – inspired by our renowned HT-Drive pedal – takes the lead tone from dynamic crunch to a singing, smooth legato and remains composed and graceful.”
With the emphasis on simplicity and sonic purity, the Studio 10 series has been crafted to provide the guitarist with the widest range of superior guitar tones. Both models will be available for $549.99 in January 2019, and will be debuted at WNAMM at the KORG USA, Inc. booth, Hall B #8802. You can learn more about the amps on the Blackstar website.
