Blackstar Artisan 30H 30 Watt Handwired Valve Head

It's become clear, now that I've been reviewing all our new stock of Blackstar equipment, just how many different amps they make. Only surprising due to the length of time the company's been in existence. That said, I guess given it's a bunch of ex Marshall Employee's who created the brand they had a head (no pun intended) start. The Amp we are looking at today falls somewhere between their full blown super distortion amps and the minimalistic old school Artisan 15 combo we recently raved over.Finished to a very high standard, the cab housing this amp is a lesson in how it's done. The now familiar looking control panel is also neatly laid out and intuitive to use. From the left we have 3 chrome switches for power, standby and 10 or 30 watts. After this is channel 2s volume, treble, middle, bass, voice and gain followed by Hi and Lo input jacks. Channel 1 has bass shape, tone and volume again followed by high and low input jack sockets.

  • Class A 30W head
  • Switch for 10W single-ended / 30W push-pull
  • 4 x EL84 output valves

  • Hi and Lo inputs perfect for channel blending
  • Impedance selector
  • Power (RMS): 30 Watts or 10 Watts (Switchable)
  • Valves: 1 x GZ34, 4 x EL84, 3 x ECC83, 1 x EF86
