zZounds Live: Blackstar St. James Amplifiers




Get ready to rock with the Blackstar St. James amps! Available in both head and 1x12" combos, these amps come in your choice of two bold flavors, thanks to the legendary pedigrees of each model's power tubes:

• EL34 - The classic high-gain British sound. Imagine crispy cleans that smoothly transition into compressed saturation and overflowing with midrange attitude.
• 6L6 - Iconic American muscle. Thick and rich high headroom cleans that'll punch you right in the gut once cranked into a snarling overdrive.

Named after one of the oldest parts of Blackstar's hometown of Northampton, England, St. James amps reflect the rich heritage of British tube amps, while always pushing the technological envelope. Go direct into a venue's PA system, or DI into a studio interface thanks to a Cab Rig reactive load output. Add atmosphere to your sounds with waves of complex digital reverb, and add your own personal touch with the built-in effects loop.

No matter your style, Blackstar's St. James amps have something for everyone. Tune in as Justin demos the 6L6 combo and EL34 head in our exclusive livestream -- you'll definitely hear something you like!
