Blackstar Jared James Nichols Ltd Ed Signature 20W 2x12 Tube Guitar Amp Set

Description:

Blackstar is proud to announce the limited edition Jared James Nichols JJN-20RH MkII signature tube 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 gets.

Jared has been using Blackstar amps 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 after 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.

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.

<[p>The two footswitchable Overdrive Voices are characterized 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.

A USB output has been added for the simplest way to get tube tone into your recordings. Also included 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.

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.

A new studio quality reverb has been designed to perfectly complement guitar tones.

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.

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.
