The Blackstar St James 6L6 50w valve combo - a super light weight amp with no compromise on tone or performance. It delivers classic US Clean and modern high gain tones via way of its 2-channels and features a selection of appointments that are sure to please the modern day guitarist.
The St James 6L6 combo is powered by 2 x ECC83 and 2 x 6L6 valves, is loaded with a 1x12" Celestion Zephyr speaker, and has a modern Black finish with a silver birch weave grill.
It has a 2-channel setup. Channel 1 inspired by classic American amps of the mid 60s. Very clean and bright, but with a solid low-end and controlled mids. Channel 2 has modern preamp gain structure, and delivers plenty of powerful drive tones that are tight an percussive. Engage the Voice switch and you're treated to a re-voiced overdriven valve preamp for more saturation, the power amp also get reconfigured to be open-loop to provide a contemporary high-gain looser feel with plenty of resonant low end chug.
Each channel shares the EQ controls, but thanks to the internal separate EQ circuits there is no compromise in tone thanks to the dual-ganged potentiometers.
Thanks to its Power Reduction, the amps will work for stage, studio and home - select 50 watts, 2 watts or SAG to get the perfect balance of power.
At the rear of the amp you have access to a selection of welcome pro connectivity with USB audio for pro-recording, an XLR DI output (both using the built in inductive load). You also have access to Cab Rig, Blackstar's next generation DSP speaker simulator that reproduces the sound and feel of a mic'd up guitar cab in incredible detail (with access to over 250 options via the free Architect software).
The Blackstar St James 6L6 Combo is a superb amp, that delivers on all fronts...lightweight, great looks, tone, and versatility!
