If you’re on the hunt for dynamic, high-headroom cleans and ultra-defined high-gain overdrive tones, this combo amp fully captures the magic of a Class A, single-ended tube power stage. Beyond that, this amp’s Celestion Seventy 80 speaker complements its gorgeous tone beautifully. The Studio 10 KT88 features footswitchable Clean and Boost settings that can be dialed to perfection with its Tone control.

KT88 power tube provides high headroom and tight overdrive

The Blackstar Studio 10 is loaded with a single KT88 power tube, a design that’s prized among tube aficionados for its high headroom and raw power! KT88-powered amps are renowned for their dynamic cleans and tight, punchy overdrive tones. In addition, they simply sound big, especially when cranked due to their tendency to remain uncompressed, even when pushed hard. Plus, the Blackstar Studio 10 KT88’s Celestion Seventy 80 speaker adds an extra layer of definition, with round lows and an aggressive midrange response.

Loaded with player-friendly additions

The level of tone packed inside of the Studio 10 KT88 is impressive for a small 10-watt amp, and it’s loaded with features that are sure to add excitement to your recording sessions. Its speaker-emulated output is taken after its Class A power stage, so you’ll inject your projects with KT88 power tube tone, along with the dimensional sound of a miked-up cab. What’s more, integrating the Studio 10 KT88 with your pedalboard and other effects is a piece of cake thanks to its effects loop. You also get three external speaker outputs for adding an extension cab. Finally, the Studio 10 KT88 features a built-in reverb that provides lush ambience without washing out your playing.
