Artist Series amplifiers take the incredible tone, features and iconic styling Blackstar's award-winning Artisan handwired amps and add channel switching, their patented ISF tone shaping circuit, reverb and an effects loop, to create the ultimate vintage-inspired amps for a wide range of classic clean and crunch tones. Powered with 6L6 tubes and outfitted with a Celestion V-Type speaker, this amp delivers 15 watts of pristine and expressive Blackstar tone perfect for plugging straight in or pairing with your favorite pedals.
At the heart of the Artist 15 lies a unique power amplifier design that harnesses the tonal qualities of the revered 6L6 tube. By carefully optimising the key power amplifier parameters of the Artist 15, the Blackstar design team has created an amplifier which has the outstanding dynamics normally associated with a USA 6L6 design, whilst adding the chime and shimmer of a classic British Class A amplifier.
The Artist 15's two channels offer the widest possible palette of classic tones and each channel can be set as either a clean channel or a classic overdrive channel. With the emphasis on simplicity and sonic purity, every feature has been refined to allow a musician total freedom in shaping their own sound.
Pro features such as footswitching, reverb, master volume and effects loop augment the sonic experience, making the product completely equipped for today’s exacting performance requirements.
As with all Blackstar products, reliability is paramount and the Artist 15 has been subject to countless hours of endurance testing, both in the laboratory and in live performance meaning you can rely on the Artist 15 night after night in the most demanding gig environments.
This flexibility, tone and quality is delivered with a visual elegance worthy of the world’s greatest stages and performers. From the metallic thread in the classic paper fret to the embossed Blackstar detail on the luxury leather carrying strap, nothing has been left to chance in delivering the Artist 15 - The New Classic.
