6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 6 years' warranty and 180 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 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 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.

Blackstar Artisan 30H Handwired Head

Details
The Blackstar Artisan 30H Handwired Head is the head version of the award-winning combo, and it features the same great looks and superb tone. The Artisan 30H is loaded with two channels - one is based on an EF86 Pentode and the other an ECC83 Triode. The channels can be used separately or can be blended together, providing a plethora of legendary vintage and boutique tones. Channel 1 features a 5-way Bass Shape control, as well as Tone and Volume knobs. It is named the 'EF86' channel, as it is built around a EF86 preamplifier pentode valve which provides plenty of gain, and delivers beautifully complex response. Channel 2, which is also known as the 'ECC83' Channel, is equipped with a 2-position Voice switch that allows users to sculpt their own bright or warm response. Channel 2 produces bright and ringing tones yet still has plenty of rich warmth at the lower end. The Artisan 30H is constructed to the highest standards, and features finger-jointed birch plywood and a welded steel chassis for incredible durability and strength, that will withstand the rigours of the road. To complete the Blackstar 30H Handwired Head's vintage appearance, the Artisan 30H is covered with deep, red tolex.

Channel 1

Channel 1 is loaded with a EF86 preamplifier pentode valve, which is known for its exceptionally high gain sound. With enhanced gain, Channel 1 provides an intense and explosive sound that allows the amp to drive hard with rich distortion. This channel can be sculpted via its unique controls, which include a 5-position Bass Shape knob that allows users to simply select from a huge array of tones ranging from bright and twangy to full and smooth. There is also a Tone control for adjusting the colouration of the 30H Head and a Volume knob for controlling the overall projection.

Channel 2

Channel 2 has a ECC83 preamp valve, and therefore yields a smooth and rich tonality with a retro feel. This channel also has excellent vintage warmth, and a bell-like ringing top end. There is a 2-Position Voice switch that provides Channel 2 with the choice for a brighter or warmer response. The controls for Channel 2 include Gain which adjusts the amount of overdrive effect, Volume for controlling the amount of overall projection of the channel, and 3-band EQ that consists of Bass, Middle and Treble for altering the presence of the different frequencies.

Roadworthy Construction

The Artisan 30H is built to be long-lasting, and it combines vintage style with rugged, road-worthy reliability. It is constructed with finger-jointed birch ply, and with the welded steel chassis, the Artisan 30H ensures sturdiness and durability whilst out on the road. The head also features a strong handle allows players to easily lift and transport the amp head from gig to gig. Rubber feet are also included in the 30H's design, and offer a stable foundation whilst on stage.

Select Either Triode Mode & Pentode Mode

There is a switch on-board the Artisan 30H that allows user to choose between Triode (10 Watts) mode or Pentode (30 Watts) mode. When in Pentode mode, the Artisan 30H delivers a bell-like, ringing sound that features excellent dynamics and a punchy response. Whereas in Triode mode, the amp head yields a more well-rounded, soft and bluesy tone; which comes across darker and offers saturated distortion.

Artisan Series

Blackstar's Artisan Series consist of a range of amplifiers, that are each designed to provide an array of classically vintage tones. Artisan amps are handwired, and they feature excellent electronic circuits that are crafted with high quality components, to superb tones. To complete their vintage sound and appearance, the Artisan Series are finished with a deep red tolex.
