The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Powered by 6L6 Valves

The Artist Series utilises the 6L6 valves in an open loop configuration that helps to further accentuate the resonant bottom end and chiming treble responses. By doing so, this provides the Artist power amplifier a unique sound and feel, lying somewhere between the big and bold USA sound you would expect and a British Class A tone. A further benefit of this open loop design is the the increased gain produces more power amp distortion - the most natural and desirable of all overdrives.

Clean and Crunch Flexibility

Channel 1's stripped down channel down is simplicity itself, the Volume and Tone controls offer just the ideal amount of adjustment to the both the drive level and treble responses. With an emphasis on signal integrity, Channel 1 allows the nuances of your guitar, pedal and playing style to cut through with incredible clarity.

Channel 2 offers a new level of clean and crunch flexibility. Featuring Blackstar's patented ISF control, the widest possible variation of tone is available. When set counter-clockwise the ISF configures the tone stack to a US-style response, tightening the low mids while emphasising the treble and presence. Moving the control clockwise continuously varies the tone towards a more British-style response, where the low mids are emphasised for a warm, 'woody' clean or crunch reminiscent of classic British amplifiers from years gone by.

Natural Sounding Digital Reverb

Both the Artist 15 and Artist 30 amps feature a completely natural sounding digital reverb, delivering you outstanding musical clean and crunch tones, while raising the benchmark for guitar amplifier specific reverb designs. With some of the best studio reverb units in the world used as references for developing the voicing, this exclusive Blackstar design responds beautifully to both the dynamic nature of clean sounds an the harmonically rich textures of crunch and high gain overdrive sounds.
