6 PROPRIETARY PREAMP VOICINGS
With six finely tuned preamp voicings – Clean Warm, Clean Bright, Crunch, Super Crunch, OD 1, OD 2, Silverline puts your favourite tones at your fingertips. When used in conjunction with Blackstar's patented ISF control, you can easily tailor your tone to perfection.
PATENTED ISF CONTROL: THE SOUND IN YOUR HEAD
Blackstar’s proprietary ISF control works with the onboard EQ, sweeping from clear and open USA tones to the midrange punch of the UK’s most iconic amplifiers, and everywhere in-between. The whole tone stack response is moved, yet the tone controls remain fully interactive.
NEXT-LEVEL TOUCH RESPONSE: THE SPIRIT OF VALVE
Thanks to a high-performance SHARC® processor and patented Blackstar TVP technology, Silverline’s Response controls delivers the nuanced feel, vibe, and response of six of the most coveted valve power sections in the world – KT88, 6L6, KT66, EL34, 6V6, EL84. Plug in, select the perfect setting for you, and experience the pure tone of your favourite amps with more detail than you ever thought possible.
BETTER BY DESIGN
Designed by the same team responsible for Blackstar’s acclaimed valve amps, the state-of-the-art Silverline models have the intuitive control of a traditional amp with the huge benefit of being fully programmable. The high-performance SHARC® DSP platform runs algorithms that recreate analogue circuit parameters with supreme accuracy right down to component level.
These are not modelling amps in the usual sense of the word – Silverline amps provide stunning boutique “valve tone” on a highly powerful and flexible digital platform.
As with every aspect of the Silverline series, the onboard modulation, delay, and reverb effects, all based on classic and boutique designs, are the perfect blend of pristine sound quality and effortless control. Even with four of each effect type, two knobs are all it takes to find your perfect settings.
GENUINE CELESTION SPEAKERS
Silverline is the new standard in digital guitar amplification. So we outfitted this model with the standard in 10” guitar speakers, the Celestion VT-Jnr. With its balanced sound and singing mids, it’s the perfect choice for translating Silverline’s wide breadth of tone.
ALL IN ONE RECORDING SOLUTION
Silverline is a simple and inspiring way to capture your tones in the studio. Whether taking a line from the combination Phones/Emulated output, using the plug-and-play USB recording interface capabilities or mic’ing the speaker, Silverline makes the perfect studio companion.
DEEP EDITING WITH INSIDER
Silverline is the most intuitive, boutique-level digital amp on the market. But plug it into your computer via USB, and Blackstar’s free INSIDER software unleashes a world of deep-editing, preset organisation and patch sharing that gives you total control of every aspect of your sound.
