Looking for more from a practice or recording amp? You'll definitely want to have a look at/listen to the Blackstar Debut 15E combo guitar amplifier.
The all-analog Blackstar Debut 15E is packed with a massive spread of tones, by virtue of its Blackstar's Infinite Shape Feature (ISF). When turned fully counterclockwise, you'll lend an American characteristic to your voice, with a tight bottom end and aggressive middle. Turned all the way to the right, you'll enjoy more of a British vibe, with a woodier sound that's less aggressive. However you dial in the Debut 15E, you'll enjoy a musical response that commands attention.
Music playback sounds just as it was meant to be heard, in glorious stereo, through the Debut 15E's twin 3" speakers. And whether you're running backing tracks from your phone/tablet or additional instrument sources into the MP3 input, this amp delivers big sound on the go.
The Blackstar Debut 15E's speaker-emulated output delivers the sound of a miked-up cabinet, even with the volume down. Connect to your audio interface or a PA system and enjoy great tone. It also produces inspiring sounds when you're wearing headphones, which is great for late-night practicing and tracking. Guitarists here at Music Experience have found the speaker-emulated output to be our family's (or roommate's) favorite feature.
The Blackstar Debut 15E is packed with a solid-sounding digital tape delay effect. Turn it fully counterclockwise, and the effect is deactivated. Turn it fully clockwise, and experience a lush ambience that adds dimension to your playing.
Your first amp should sound phenomenal. Meticulously designed by the same UK R&D team as Blackstar’s high-end valve amps, Debut Series’ simple-to-use, all analogue design delivers stunningly rich and natural clean and overdrive tones. The ultimate playing experience for any guitarist beginning their journey.
Debut’s convenient headphone/recording output simulates the tonal characteristics of a guitar speaker cabinet in incredible detail, providing addictively organic tones for silent practice or direct home recording.
Rather than a conventional guitar speaker, Debut amps are equipped with a pair of stereo linear speakers akin to those you would find on a HiFi system. This means the Debut doubles up as a great sounding speaker for:
Debut comes equipped with our patented ISF EQ, allowing you to effortlessly dial-in incredible sounds. Fully counter clockwise has an American characteristic with a tight bottom end and aggressive middle. Fully clockwise has a British characteristic which is more ‘woody’ and less aggressive.
Debut’s gorgeous vintage cream and ox-blood colour palette with premium covering, fret cloth and hardware sit elegantly in any home.
Debut Series amplifiers come equipped with a versatile ‘tape’ delay effect for an immersive playing experience. Set a short delay time for authentic slapback and room sounds perfect for country and rock ‘n' roll, or a long delay time for ambient soundscapes.
Plug in your phone, tablet or device and jam along to your favourite tracks with incredible audio quality from Debut’s stereo linear speakers.
When you need to cut the volume, hook yourself up to the Debut’s headphone/recording output with the incredibly detailed, natural speaker simulation.
Two channels take you from chiming cleans, through rich crunches to heavy overdrive tones and singing leads. Designed by the same UK R&D team as Blackstar’s high-end valve amps, using the same level of testing and critical listening tests as all Blackstar products.
The Debut Series amplifiers have been designed to react to your guitar volume exactly like a valve amp would, providing ultimate sonic control and access to an infinite palette of tonal subtleties.
