Building on the success of the award-winning Artisan Series of handwired amplifiers, Blackstar are proud to announce the launch of two new heads and an extension cabinet to the range — the Artisan 15H, 15 Watt head, Artisan 30H, 30 Watt head and Artisan 212, 2x12 extension cabinet. Driven by demand from players around the world, these head versions of the popular combos offer the same exceptional standards of tone and construction in a head format. The 212 cabinet is ideal for use with these heads or for those who want a compact alternative to a 4x12.

Artisan 15H
The Artisan 15H head — beautiful looks and beautiful tone. Two channels, one based on an EF86 Pentode and the other an ECC83 Triode, touch base on a multitude of legendary vintage and boutique reference tones. The EL84 based power section is switchable between 5W single-ended Class A and a more dynamic push-pull 15W Class A configuration, for the ultimate in low power valve amplifier flexibility.

  • Class A 15W
  • Switch for 5W single-ended / 15W push-pull operation
  • 2 x EL84 output valves
  • EF86 channel
  • ECC83 channel
  • Hi and Lo inputs perfect for channel blending
  • Impedance selector


Artisan 30H
There is something undoubtedly magical in the sonic qualities of the 30W EL84 power stage driving a pair of classic British speakers. The Artisan 30H head takes this tone and carefully distils it, taking it to a new level of tonal purity. One channel is built around an EF86 with a 5-way Bass Shape switch and the other an ECC83 with the addition of a Voice control for extra tonal flexibility. The Master Volume delivers the pure, natural crunch that you would expect from an amp of this quality.

  • Class A 30W
  • Switch for 10W single-ended / 30W push-pull
  • 4 x EL84 output valves
  • EF86 channel with 5-way Bass Shape switch
  • ECC83 channel with 2-way Voice switch and Master Volume
  • Hi and Lo inputs perfect for channel blending
  • Impedance selector


Artisan 212
The 2x12 cabinet is handwired and built to the highest standards using the finest materials. Every care has been taken with the design to ensure that it produces the best possible sounds and will really last a lifetime.

  • Finger-jointed birch plywood construction
