The Blackstar Artist 10 AE will give you shimmering cleans and classic overdriven tones. This 10-watt combo's 6L6-fueled power section calls up loads of glassy-sounding chime, while an ECC83 preamp tube and built-in overdrive provide the perfect amount of grit for lead playing. A Celestion speaker delivers classic punch, warmth, and midrange. Dial in your sound with the Tone knob, then add depth and ambience to your performance with the Artist 10 AE's onboard reverb. Limited to only 1,000 pieces, the Artist 10 AE also features an effects loop, speaker-emulated output, and a 1-button footswitch.
The Blackstar Artist 10 AE is loaded with a 6L6 power tube. 6L6s are the epitome of American amplifier tone, prized for their fat, round low end, and bright clean tones. It is also extremely versatile, performing as well for clean jazz as it does for saturated metal. The Artist 10 AE also features an ECC83 preamp tube, along with a built-in HT-Drive-inspired overdrive circuit, so you can push the 6L6's toneful grit into a scorching lead tone.
Blackstar designed the Artist 10 AE with pedals in mind. At Music Experience, we've found that it's essentially a blank canvas for your favorite fuzz, distortion, and overdrive pedals. Integrating the Artist 10 AE with your other effects is a piece of cake, thanks to its effects loop, and its Loop Level switch makes matching your amp to your other gear easy — +4dBV? -10dB? No problem.
The Blackstar Artist 10 AE is packed with a solid-sounding digital reverb. Turn it fully counterclockwise, and the reverb is deactivated, leaving room for external effects. Turn it fully clockwise, and experience a lush ambience that adds dimension to your playing without washing it out.
In celebration of 10 years of glorious Blackstar tone, three new 10W single-ended valve amplifiers have been developed drawing on the sound and innovation of iconic Blackstar lines - Artisan, Artist and Series One.
If you need one amp to do it all, the Blackstar Artist 30 may be your amp.
