In celebration of 10 years of glorious Blackstar tone, Blackstar created a 10W single-ended valve amplifier that has been developed drawing on the sound and innovation of iconic Artist line. The Artist 10 AE deploys a 6L6 output valve and an ECC83 in the preamp stage to give this amp a characteristically bright clean sound and a hot lead tone. The lead sounds are enhanced by a built-in overdrive circuit inspired by our HT-Drive pedal which will take you from dynamic crunch to singing, smooth legato.
