Backstage Bestsellers: Amplifiers

Previously we looked at our best selling acoustic guitars so we’ve decided to change it up just a little bit and take a look at our best selling Amplifiers!

  1. The Blackstar LT-EchoLT Echo
    Blackstar is an English company with over 50 years combined experience in guitar amplification design and production. They really focus on bringing a great tone which we must say thay have succed to do so. Top artists like Richie Sambora of Bon Jovi, Ozzy Osbourne’s Gus G., James Dean Bradfield of the Manic Street Preachers, Alice Cooper’s Tommy Henriksen and so many others all trust Blackstar with their sound.
    Alike our acoustic guitars our top seller once again is the smaller, less expensive model; the LT-Echo 10 for (10 watt) $79.99 followed by the LT-Echo 15 (15 watt) for $119.99. These two electric guitar amps are great little practice amps for the beginning guitarist or anyone with limited space.
    Both amps feature one guitar Input plus MP3/Line In and one headphone output (always a great feature for family and neighbors). It has your basic settings; volume, equalizer (ISF), overdrive but what this little practice amp offers compared to other basic practice amps is the fun of the delay feature for you to play around with.
  2. The Blackstar ID:Core Stereo 40 V2
    This amp is not only our second best selling amp in our store but also OUR absolute favorite guitar amp for the money and let’s face it, if it wasn’t for the Blackstar LT-ID Core 40Eco going for less than $100 this amp would by far be the winner. It’s a 2x20W ultimate entry level guitar amplifier. Incredible tone and flexibility is accessed by a simple and intuitive control set and delivered in SUPER WIDE STEREO to give an immersive playing experience that will have you hooked on playing guitar. It really sounds great and there are plenty of effects to play around with. It can even store up to 6 of your own custom pre-sounds.
    For only $199.00 you get so many more options than with the LT-Echo Amps and the size should not be an issue measuring approximately 17” x 13” x 7”.
    We could go on and on but about this amazing amp so to cut it short here is the demo video instead:
  3. The Marshall AS50D Acoustic Amp
    Number 3, finally, the Marshall AS50D going for $399.00. Marshall is one of the absolute leading brands in guitar amps. MarshallAnother English company originally associated with the guys who now produce the Blackstar amplifiers. The AS50D is an acoustic guitar amp with absolutely great reviews online and from our experience. Tailored specifically for the singer-songwriter, this amp fits well within that role featuring 2 channels, including a phantom-powered microphone channel. This amp is a great acoustic guitar workhorse amp. Whatever you need to do, whether it is practicing, gigging or recording, it covers it all. This amp sounds great with any acoustic guitar but pair it up with the Washburn WLO12SE, mentioned in our previous post about Acoustic Guitars, and you will get a beautiful outcome!

  4. The VOX VX Series

    1. AVX1nother great, well-known brand that we carry would be VOX, again an English manufacturer founded back in 1947. Used by artists such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Yardbirds, Queen, Dire Straits, U2 and Radiohead.
      The VX Series is a line of acoustic, electric and bass practice amps. The best selling one of these would be the VX1, electric guitar amp.Vox VX50 Much like the Blackstars these amps do just a little more than your basic practice amp with a decent selection of effects, custom presets, and fairly loud if so desired. These amps are all very compact and super light weight that makes them easy to bring with. Ranging from $99.99 (basic 10W) to $229.99 (50W) these amps fit the needs and expenses of most of our clientele.
    2. The Blackstar ID:Core BEAM
      Last but least we have one of the still leading amps in technology, awarded guitar gear of the year 2015, the Blackstar ID:Core BEAM ($279.99). The BEAM concept is ID Core BEAMsimple: it’s a more compact entry in the ID:Core line, packing the same principle electric models and adding Bluetooth, the first product of Blackstar to have so, allowing you to stream your music to the amplifier. It doesn’t stop there, though: the BEAM is also Blackstar’s first product for acoustic, electric and bass players, with two bass, six electric guitar, two acoustic and two acoustic simulator Voices, and with a sealed and ported cabinet construction for optimum bass response and stereo definition, the ID:Core BEAM is the ultimate musician’s amp for the home.

    Building on the already compact ID:Core series, the Fly 3 takes the micro amp concept and runs with it, packing three watts, two channels, digital tape delay and Blackstar’s Infinite Shape Feature for British and American sounds. It’s the tone that makes the Fly 3 such a resounding Fly3.jpgsuccess, though; it sounds as good as practice amps four times the size, with a meaty bass response, American-style cleans and hefty gain. We usually recommend this great little amp for ukulele players who just want to add a little more spice to their playing with their acoustic/electric ukulele. What is also great about this is that it is battery operated, and has the possibility of purchasing the power supply if wanted, which allows you to use it anywhere! It also had an MP3 / LINE IN jack built in, allowing you to connect to your MP3 player, mobile phone, laptop, tablet etc. and jam along to your favourite tracks. We are definitely positively surprised by all the qualities this little amp supplies for only $59.99!
