Blackstar Jared James Nichols LTD

The team at Blackstar is proud to announce the limited edition Jared James Nichols JJN-20RH MkII signature valve amp head with matching JJN-212VOC MkII cabinet.

EL84s are at the tonal heart of Jared’s JJN-20RH MkII head. With a wider radius box, stunning racing green tolex and distinctive tilt-back design, the JJN-20RH MkII is as eye catching as it looks.

Jared has been using Blackstar for nine years to deliver his unique BLUESPOWER tone. His high-energy performances and ‘pick-less’ guitar playing technique have seen his reputation continue to grow year on year, as more people are introduced to his unique blend of blues grit and gusto, through to bombastic arena-size rock ‘n’ roll.

Jared spent time at Blackstar HQ in Northampton, England working on the voicing and cosmetic designs to ensure this amp would deliver his sound night after night as he tours the world. The results are both sonically and visually stunning.

"Blackstar amps define my tone. It really is the sound in my head. It's simple; Blackstar inspires me to play at my best. I’m absolutely honoured to now be a signature artist. I have toured around the world, always with a Blackstar amp behind me. I am so thrilled to be able to share my BLUESPOWER tones with the world though my own Signature Amp."
Jared James Nichols

Enhanced Cleans

- The JJN-20RH MkII has two footswitchable Clean Voices, one with an "American" character and the other with a Class A "British" sound.
- Voice 1: Voice 1 clean gives a bright and tight tone with a solid bass response, the tone shaping is positioned early in the gain structure for a refined American tone and response.
- Voice 2: Voice 2 gives a highly responsive "chime" with a looser, resonant bottom-end for a British tone that can be pushed into a mid-range overdrive when driven hard.

Enhanced Overdrives

- The two footswitchable Overdrive Voices are characterised by a tone which is high in gain, but avoids any of the detached top-end "fizz" often found in other designs.
- Voice 1: This is the Classic "British" Blackstar overdrive. Rich and natural it goes all the way to Super Crunch gain but cleans up beautifully
- Voice 2: Inspired by the critically acclaimed HT Venue MkII high gain sounds, this overdrive has additional aggression in the high-end with a tight resonant low-end.

Patented Isf (Infinite Shape Feature) Tone Shaping

The conventional three way guitar EQ network, or tone stack (a.k.a. Bass, Middle and Treble), is a key to the characteristic “voice” of traditional guitar amplifiers. Classic amplifier designs have their own versions of this network which leads to their own tonal voicings. The ISF control allows you to infinitely adjust the response of the tone control network between any of the traditional voicings in a way that has never before been possible. In this way you can design your own sound and truly find ‘the sound in your head’.

USB and XLR outputs

USB output have been added for the simplest way to get valve tone into your recordings. Also added is a pro balanced XLR D.I. output, which allows the speaker emulated signals to be connected to external devices for practicing, recording or live use.

Power Reduction

Inspired by the patented Dynamic Power Reduction circuit, simply switch down to 2 Watts at the push of a button without any loss of tone. Perfect for driving the EL84 power stage hard at lower volumes.

Reverb

Blackstar's studio quality reverb has been designed to perfectly complement guitar tones.

Boutique Looks

The compact cabinet has a 3 degree angle on the front face, top-loader panel and stage-friendly chickenhead knobs giving the JJN-20R MkII a stunning boutique style.

The head tilts back slightly to make it easy to dial in your tone.

JJN-212VOC MKII Cabinet

The stunning JJN-212VOC MkII is a vertical 2x12" cabinet perfectly matched to the JJN-20RH MkII head, loaded with one Celestion V-TYPE speaker and one Celestion G12T-75 speaker.

The pull-off panel on the rear allows you to easily change from a closed back for a tight low-end, to a semi-open back for a wide mid-range.

Overall: I can't believe Blackstar packed so much awesome in such a sleek and affordable package. This stack does it all. Chimey, harmonic cleans. Lush overdrive from a mild JTM-45 grit, all the way to a face melting shred machine. Just hit an A Major and play a lead line, you'll see what this amp can do.I love how even on the highest gain settings the amp is still quiet with very little background noise. The ISF takes the amp from a tight focused bite, to a squishy, airy snarl. I've heard people think less of Blackstar because they're made in China (Designed in the UK) well, I sold a custom Demeter TGA 2 Inverter which I absolutely loved to get this stack. You can't beat the tone even if you paid 3k more. I've owned and played hundreds of amps, this amp has something special. That mojo, voodoo swamp juice tone. And to get that tone at 2 watts without pissing off your neighbors at your apartment is even better. Get this stack, it kicks ass!
Style of Music: Rock, blues, metal, classical, fingerstyle, flamenco, jazz, ect...

Overall: Had a HT5 stack that was incredible. Sold it to get this and it was a great choice. The tones you can get from this amp are top notch! From the cleanest clean I ever played to a metal crunch. The look of it just pops with the British racing green and the tan tweed speaker cover. The 20 watt to 2 watt switch is a great feature.
Style of Music: blues
