Company History
In 2004 four friends, all bandmates, were looking for a new challenge.
Having worked together for years at the highest level of the amplifier
industry their dream was to create new and innovative guitar amplifiers
and pedals that would be the ultimate tools for self expression.
Having spent two and a half years doing intensive technical research
in a garden shed in Northampton England, the first Blackstar products
were ready and in March 2007, Blackstar was officially launched at the
Frankfurt Musik Messe.
The garden shed where it all began
Since then we have moved from the garage to our own premises,
which has a purpose built lab and studio and we’ve been lucky
enough to add some amazingly talented people to our team.
Four years on, we have been on a remarkable journey and been
privileged to meet some incredible people from all over the world and
call them our friends. From artists like Gus G (Ozzy Osbourne/Firewind),
Neal Schon (Journey) Fredrik Åkesson (Opeth), Silenoz (Dimmu Borgir)
and James Dean Bradfield (Manic Street Preachers),
to the many players that support us and come
and meet us at shows.
Frankfurt Musik Messe stand 2007
Since those early days we have continued to grow
as a company, but one thing remains true. We’re
all musicians and are truly passionate about what
we do – making great guitar amps for players
around the world.
“This is the new amp that will take over the metal world! Amazing tone, incredible
gain and top notch quality. The Blackstar Series One 200 is my new addiction!”

Where innovation meets tone
At Blackstar we believe that guitar amplifier design is not voodoo or a black art – it is the application
of engineering discipline in a musical setting. The real magic happens when we are able to provide you,
the musician, with products that inspire you in your art. This philosophy drives us to truly understand the
science of great guitar tone and deliver products that really deliver ‘the sound in your head’.
We create every product at Blackstar ‘from the ground up’ as opposed to simply tweaking the old
classic designs. Each Blackstar circuit contains numerous incremental innovations, in addition to
unique breakthrough technologies such as ISF and DPR. It is often these small, yet important
enhancements that give Blackstar products their characteristic sound clarity and flexibility.
Infinite Shape Feature (ISF)
Dynamic Power Reduction (DPR)
The conventional three way guitar EQ network, or tone stack
(a.k.a. Bass, Middle and Treble), is a key to the characteristic
‘voice’ of traditional guitar amplifiers. Classic amplifier designs
have their own versions of this network which leads to their
own tonal voicings.
Everyone knows that valve amplifiers sound best when they
are turned up loud. This is because at higher volume levels
the output valves introduce musical distortion and
compression which are a vital part of the valve
amplifier experience.
The ISF control allows you to infinitely adjust the response
of the tone control network between any of the traditional
voicings in a way that has never before been possible. In
this way you can design your own sound and truly find
‘the sound in your head’.
Blackstar’s patent-applied-for DPR feature controls the
output power level by dynamically adjusting the output
stage voltages, allowing power valve distortion and
compression at any volume level.
Benefits of the ISF control:
Benefits of the DPR control:
1. ISF is a passive circuit giving a musical response that is not
found in active parametric or ‘contour’ controls.
1. DPR allows continuously variable power reduction, down to
10%, so you can use your valve amp in any playing situation.
2. The whole tone stack response (i.e. Bass, Middle and Treble) is moved.
2. DPR is a ‘dynamic’ circuit, delivering the exact compression
(a.k.a. sag) of a small overdriven valve amp, at any volume level.
These sonic innovations are only available on Blackstar products.
Put simply – ‘Blackstar amps sound different because they are different!’
Dual Patent Design
At our HQ in Northampton, England we have an ongoing
program of research and development which seeks to
constantly challenge the state-of-the-art in guitar amplifier
technology. We believe it is our dedication to research
and innovation that sets us, and our products, apart.
Patent-applied-for innovations like ISF and DPR are
the foundations of the Blackstar product catalogue
and our commitment to helping guitarists achieve
the sound in their heads.
3. The tone controls remain fully interactive, just like in a regular
tone stack.
4. The ISF control is continuously variable between all the traditional responses allowing you to effectively design your own sound.
5. ISF and ‘the sound in your head’ are only available on
Blackstar products.

3. Unlike power attenuators, DPR places nothing between the
output of the amplifier and the loudspeaker and hence as the power is reduced the feel, tone and reliability of the amplifier
is maintained.
4. DPR’s dynamic power reduction is only available on
Blackstar products.

HT SOLOIST 60
HT STAGE 100
The ultimate compact gigging amp for players
who want the power to handle larger venues
but in a 1x12 combo format. Two channels
with four modes are augmented by a Boost
level control which can add up to 10dB of
specially voiced boost. Using the OD Body
switch you can also add extra mid range
gain to the overdrive channel for fat, singing
leads. Built to last, this combo comes fully
equipped with a Celestion speaker, reverb,
emulated output, 4-way footswitch and
effects loop.
The HT Stage 100 uses a quartet of
selected EL84 power valves to deliver
100W of British dynamics with three
channels delivering 6 modes for amazing
tonal versatility. The ‘boutique’ style clean
channel is extremely versatile with two
modes – ‘British Class-A’ and ‘dynamic US’.
Each of the two ISF equipped overdrive
channels allows a further four voicing modes.
OD1 has ‘classic’ and ‘modern crunch’
modes and OD2 has ‘standard’ and ‘super
high gain lead’ modes. Adding an optional
1-way footswitch allows you to also switch
the OD2 voice switch, effectively giving you
a solo boost. This powerhouse is fully
equipped with reverb, emulated output,
4-way footswitch and effects loop.

HT PEDALS
Heavenly Boxes
The award winning HT valve overdrive pedals feature
true high voltage (300V) circuitry and are packed with
innovations and tone.
HT-BOOST
HT-DRIVE
HT-DIST
The HT-BOOST’s high voltage gain circuit is
like adding two extra hot valve stages to your
amp so, unlike with inferior battery powered
products, you don’t lose any precious
dynamics or tone.
The HT-DRIVE has dual cascaded, high
voltage, triode stages which deliver gain
from warm boost to screaming valve
saturation. The unique ‘A Class’ tone
control cuts the fizz without making your
‘backed- off’ tone sound dull and lifeless.
By allowing infinite adjustment over the
characteristics of the HT-DIST’s tone control
network, the patent-applied-for ISF circuit
allows you to effectively design your own
tone and find the sound in your head.
 Genuine valve design  Operates at 300V HT
 Cascaded valve gain stages  Hot-rod your valve

HT-DISTX
HT-DUAL
The HT-DISTX is a no compromise, ultra high
gain, filth machine. The tone has been
benchmarked against the best high-gain
valve amps in the world and will transform
your mild mannered classic into a fire
breathing monster.
The HT-DUAL offers the ultimate in high
voltage valve distortion flexibility. Channel 1
has either Clean or Crunch modes so it can
be used clean, as a boost or overdrive.
Channel 2 gives distortion tones from super
crunch right up to screaming lead. The unique
switching operation will transform a single
channel vintage amp into a three channel
tone machine.

Valve effects performance
Combining real valve tone with the flexibility of digital technology these
pedals deliver eight stunning reverb, delay or modulation effects.
HT-REVERB
HT-DELAY
HT-MODULATION
The HT-REVERB can take you from
your room to an arena via hall, plate,
spring, gate and reverse reverb
effects. Valve compression and
harmonics are added using the
Dwell control, and you can switch
the reverb time from short to
long while you are playing.
With eight different delays in one
pedal, the HT-DELAY can take you
from vintage and multihead tape
delays, through to classic analogue
and linear full bandwidth effects, and
two versatile loop modes as well.
You can then add in real valve
compression and harmonics using
the unique Saturation control.
From gentle tremolo to roaring jet
engine flange, the HT-MODULATION
brings you all the musicality of the
classic vintage effects pedals. For
ease of use the Slow/Fast feature
lets you adjust the modulation time
of the eight different modulation
effects while you are playing. The
unique Saturation control then lets
you add real valve compression
and harmonics.
