Packed Full Of Great Features
Blackstar’s unique Super Wide Stereo technology gives you an immersive sound experience that will have you playing along to your MP3 backing tracks for hours.
The patented ISF control works with the Bass, Middle and Treble controls to give you access to infinite new sound possibilities from the USA to the UK and everywhere in-between.
The unique and enhanced Voice control has six different channels - Clean Warm, Clean Bright, Crunch, Super Crunch, OD 1, OD 2. When used together with Blackstar's patented ISF control you can get the exact tone you're thinking of.
The effects section delivers studio quality modulation with octave, delay and reverb effects simultaneously that you can store with your sound. There are four of each effect type, all based on classic and boutique effects.
New Built-In Looper
The new built-in looper provides both live performance and personal home practice options for players of all skill levels. Whether playing live as a solo artist or as the lone guitarist in a power duo (or trio), the simple and intuitive looper helps you to achieve a stage-filling, multiple track sound at the press of a footswitch (included), with unlimited overdubs. At home – whether practicing, writing or recording – the looper provides the ability to practice timing, rhythm and lead without a full band environment, and the Voice, EQ and Effects settings can be independently changed between each overdub. Simple undo and clear functions complete the package.
New Polyphonic Octaver
Evolution of the ID:Core effects section in creating a new Chorus-Flanger effect makes way for the new polyphonic Octaver. Create everything from thundering detuned lows with the Octave Down to a shimmering 12-string effect with the Octave Up, or even a polyphonic wall of sound with a personal mix of anywhere in-between. The Effects Level control provides a Mix between your original guitar tone and the octave sounds, from all original pitch to octave only.
