  • What about the Blackstar Artisan 15?

    So since I'm looking for a new amp smaller than my AC30 but with a Vox feel this one is intriguing me a lot!I gotta say that my first choice is still the Vox ac15 Heritage but this has really similar specs. Here they are:

      I have and love my Blackstar HT-5.

      I never paid much attention to the Artisan line, but those specs are very nice looking. The 5 watt mode and EF86 channel sell it for me. Also, isn't this line handwired in England?

                  It seemed like a lot of cash for an amp with zero in the way of features. The tone and the price tag didn't match up. I liked the tone, but not enough to want to buy it.

                    that's what I thought!with the same price I can get an used vox heritage!

                      It depends, it has less features than the vox heritage but damn, it does its thing well. I toured with a band that was using the a30 (30w version). This amp is extremely responsive to your playing and are very good. They are built to last although they are made in korea. They use vintage 30s but they work really well with the style.
                      It takes pedals really well and the guys that look after blackstar are top blokes.

                      I personally would recommend them over vox.
                      If I had a bit of extra dosh, I'd go for the a30 head version so you can get a 1x12 and then you get all the features of the artisan 30.
                      Both exist in head and combo versions.

                          i have the a15 and it is great. such a crystal clear tone that has so much sustain you really wont need a compressor.
                          the only down side is that there isn't a ton of headroom. but loud enough to play over a drummer unmicd more that likely.

                            ive owned the HT5 and HT20...and tried the artisan 15 out of curiosity...and its the one i should have gotten in the first place. IMO its great. the Ht-5 sounds like a metal pedal comparision and the HT20 was as slightly warmer version of hte HT55

                            too pricey for me thou as i already have a similiar sounding amps,

                              You've now necro'd Artisan threads in three separate forums.
