The S1-104 Head is equipped with four channels that users can easily select, in order to find their ideal voice. The channels include Clean, Crunch, Overdrive 1 and Overdrive 2; and they can be selected via the controls on the panel or through the footswitch. The Clean channel has a bright/warm switch that shapes the preamp and power amp circuits to provide either tight, jangly tones or loose, crunchy rhythms. The Crunch channel delivers a range of overdriven and rich crunch tones, and with a Super Crunch Switch, you can achieve either a loose bass response, or a high gain crunch effect that suits modern styles. There are also two Overdrive channels consisting of OD 1 and OD 2, which each provide a different distortion effect. The Overdrive channels deliver a high gain effect that still sound natural and transparent, even at high settings.
The Blackstar Series One 104W Head features dual ISF control and two 3-band EQ sections that control the different channels. There are ISF and EQ controls for the Clean and Crunch Channels together, as well as both Overdrive 1 and Overdrive 2. There is also a Master section within the control panel, which consists of a Resonance knob that controls the overall bass response of the head; and moves from a tight, focused response to full-bodied and resonant. The Presence control adjusts the overall treble response, and the Master Volume controls the overall projection that the amp offers.
No Blackstar amp would be complete without the patented ISF control. This easy-to-use function enables players to achieve the choice of two iconic tones at the turn of a dial. When turned counter clockwise, the amp delivers a classic American characteristic, with a tight bottom end. When turned clockwise, the amp delivers a classic British tone with a woody texture. ISF is perfect for players who like a variety of tones and styles, and ideal for cover bands who might feature both tones.
The Blackstar Series One amps are designed to provide players with the ultimate guitar sound, as well as plenty of versatility and sculpting options. Like all Blackstar amps, the Series One is built to the highest quality, to ensure that it will withstand the rigours of the road. For incredible versatility, the Series One amps are equipped with MIDI control which allows you to select a channel on the amp head, and change the patch on a MIDI processor that is connected to the effects loop. The effects loop provides you with the opportunity to connect your favourite effects pedals via the Return and Send connections. With the MIDI control and Series Effects Loop, you are able to access 128 effects/channel select possibilities.
