Re: Artist 15 - Crackling and Popping Noise

I also play the Artist amp. How did your repair go? I have played mine for 2 years now without any issues. I love this amp, and hope it continues to hold up.

Re: Opinions on Blackstar amps?

Been playing two of their amps for quite a few years now. I still love them.

Re: [DISCUSSION] Blackstar amps, whats the concensus?

Been a fan for quite a few years. I picked up the Blackstar Series One head after hearing it with Sammy Hagar. What intrigued me is how great it sounded in the house and he was going straight in. No pedal board, just a chord straight into the amp. I have also picked up the Artist 15 combo. It is the...

Sounds good, even at that low of a volume.

Re: Some old Van Halen through an Artist 30

That does sound good. I am a proud owner of the Artist 15. Great pedal platform amps.
Are you running the stock speaker?

Re: Blackstar Artist 30 - views, opinions, etc

Hope you got your amp all figured out. I have been using Blackstar for a few years now without problems. I hate hearing people struggle with and amp that sounds so good.

Re: Channel 1 or channel 2, which is your favourite?

Artist 15 owner. I prefer channel two almost exclusively. I like channel one for singles coils better than with the Les Paul and humbuckers. But I like the shimmer of channel 2 that channel one doesn't have. Cranking the ISF all the way up and adding some mids to channel 2 sounds the best for my nee...

Re: Series One 100 - Horrible squealing noise

I had this problem with my Series One. Pull the guts out of the head box and you will see a few plastic quick connectors. They are supposed to push and click together. One of mine had come loose during shipping. Once I pushed it back together the amp has worked as it should for the last 2 years.

Re: Series One intermittant sound cut out

I bought mine used from Guitar Center a year and a half ago. I got the extended 2 year warranty, and I find myself hoping now that the amp will cut out all together before the warranty runs out. As it sits now, I am afraid that if I send it in, they will turn it on and say everything is working fine...
