Blackstar Amped 1
The Blackstar AMPED 1 is a complete guitar amplifier in a pedal. You can plug your guitar straight in and rock out with a connected speaker cabinet. Equally, you can use it as a powered platform for your pedals, preamps and modellers.
The Blackstar AMPED 1 was developed by the same team that has already designed the three award-winning DEPT 10 tube-based pedals. The manufacturer states that the special high-headroom design of the power amplifier delivers maximum performance and optimal sound at 8 or 16 ohms with each speaker arrangement. The power can also be reduced to 20 watts and 1 watt in order to make it super flexible.
It’s small enough to fit into your gig bag and can serve as a pure amp for your other external devices as well as standalone. You have three voicings at your disposal: USA, UK and Flat. In addition to a 3-band EQ and a reverb with a freeze effect.
It also features a prominent RESPONSE button. Here players can determine their personal amplifier tube favourite; KT88, 6L6, EL34, 6V6, EL84, or LINEAR.
We were really impressed by the AMPED 1 when it was released earlier this year; check out our feature for the full details!
