A range of 10-watt, class-A tube combos equipped with a footswitchable boost, series effects loop, studio-quality reverb, and more.

Melville, NY (January 10, 2019) -- Blackstar Amplification has launched the Studio 10Series; a range of 10 watts, Class A tube combos equipped with a footswitchable boost, series effects loop, studio quality reverb and more. The series includes two models, the Studio10 EL34 and Studio 10 6L6, each designed to fully capture the magic of the Class A, single-ended tube power stage.

The Studio10 EL34 is built around the classic BritishEL34 power tube, and offers the classic crunch of British circuit and a wide variety of versatility in the midrange. Combined with a classic Celestion 12” speaker, guitarists will crave the aggressive power available in the Studio10 EL34; an innovative solution for players seeking an amp capable of producing an impressive range of overdriven and punchy tones.

Comparatively, the Studio10 6L6 includes all the same features except it utilizes the iconic American 6L6 power tube. The 6L6 power stages gives players a smooth, clean feel across their range of low, mid and high frequencies. Guitarists will experience a well-balanced sound, perfect for any style of music.

“We’re all really excited for the Studio 10 series, a new approach for Blackstar,” explains Brian Piccolo, Director of Guitar Brands at KORG USA, Inc. “These amplifiers allow players to harness the true tone of a tube power amp at a very manageable volume level,” Piccolo continues.

With the emphasis on simplicity and sonic purity, the Studio 10 series has been crafted to provide the guitarist with the widest range of superior guitar tones. Both models will be available for $549.99 in January 2019. They will be debuted at WNAMM at the KORG USA, Inc. booth, Hall B #8802.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
