Introducing Blackstar Silverline, the world’s only zero compromise, boutique-level digital guitar amplifiers. Crafted with players in mind, Silverline combines next-level DSP, player-friendly features, and plug-and-play tone sculpting in a stunning-looking line of stage-ready amps. Whether you’re in the studio, onstage, or practicing at home, are the amps for the job.
Onboard the Silverline Deluxe Head, you’ll find the same next-level SHARC processing power, array of Voice and Response settings, and studio-grade effects as the combo. But the Deluxe’s head format allows you to combine it with your venue-filling 4x12, travel-friendly 2x12, or any other electric guitar speaker cabinet. Simply pair it with your favourite, and let the Silverline Deluxe Head handle the rest.
INCREDIBLE TONE, ON DEMAND
The Silverline series delivers an astonishing breadth of industry-leading tones with a twist of a few knobs. And with four onboard preset locations to store them in, it’s like having access to a warehouse of high-end gear with push of a button.
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
Match your Silverline Deluxe head to a beautiful 2x12” cabinet loaded with the standard in guitar speakers, Celestion V-Types. With their balanced sound and singing mids, they are 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.
