The S1-50 Head is equipped with two channels that users can select, in order to find their ideal voice. The channels include Clean and Overdrive, which each have two modes that can be selected via controls on the head, or via the footswitch. The Clean channel offers Bright Clean mode for ringing tones, and Warm Clean which offers rich and crunchy harmonics. The Overdrive channel includes Crunch mode that provides users with a punchy, overdriven sound, and Super Crunch offers a full on, intense crunch effect.
The Blackstar Series One 50 Head is equipped with a variety of different controls, which provides users with increased versatility. The Clean Channel has a Gain control that is for adjusting the amount of distortion which ranges from a clean, subtle effect to a broken up overdrive. The Overdrive Channel also features a Gain control that when increased clockwise, can achieve a full on and intense distortion. Both channels are equipped with a Volume control that lets you adjust the amount of overall projection of the effects. There is a Master section within the controls, 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.
