Blackstar Amplification Series One

March 30, 2009 – Blackstar Amplification is proud to launch the Series One at Frankfurt 2009. The much anticipated Series 1 produces mind-blowing high gain performance with a level of tonal enhancement found previously in the very best boutique and vintage amplifiers.

From the extraordinary power of the 200-watt KT88 equipped head to the strikingly crafted 45-watt combo, each Series One design sets new standards in the industry for valve tone and flexibility.

The Blackstar Series One dual patent design is the result of hundreds of hours of research by one of the most experienced design teams in the business. The built in DPR power reduction system allows reduction to any level down to 10% of the rated power with no loss in tone or valve reliability and the ISF control provides tonal flexibility beyond that of any traditional tone control system.

SERIES ONE 45
By switching both preamplifier and power amplifier parameters the Series One 45W delivers both Class A style tones with a bell-like ring and classic push-pull crunch depending on the mode selected. The ISF control removes the limitations of traditional designs allowing you to tune the tone to exactly the sound you are looking for.

DPR can reduce the power down to 4.5W and MIDI switching and a series effects loop make this the ultimate pro’s combo.

SERIES ONE 100
Built on the rock-solid foundation of the classic 100W EL34 power stage, this amplifier sets new standards for clean and crunch tones. Two channels and four footswitchable modes, complete with ISF, include the amazing Super Crunch for the biggest, crunchiest tones yet heard.

The DPR control allows power to be reduced to 10W for studio and small venue work, while a series effects loop and MIDI switching further expand the flexibility of this professionally specified amplifier.

  • 100 Watt head with built-in DPR power reduction
  • 3 x ECC83, 1 x ECC82, 4 x EL34 valves

SERIES ONE 200
Four selected KT88 power valves form the backbone of this 200W high gain power house and provide unbelievable dynamics and head-room. The DPR control allows the power to be reduced down to 20W for beautiful power amp distortion at a much lower volume level.

Dual Patent Design
ISF (Infinite Shape Feature)

This fully interactive control allows you to infinitely adjust the response of the tone control network between British and American voicings. In this way you can design your own sound and find the sound in your head.

DPR (Dynamic Power Reduction)
The unique DPR system allows you to vary the amplifier output down to 10% of its rated power with no loss in tone or valve reliability. Pure valve output distortion and compression at any volume — a dream come true.
