Blackstar Expands Its Dept 10 Series with the AMPED 1

The AMPED 1 was designed turns any pedalboard, modeler, or multi-effector into a performance ready amp.


This small and powerful floor amp delivers the sounds and ‘feel’ of a real guitar amp, offering 3 preamp voices and 6 power amp responses for versatility, plus Cab Rig with 3 built-in presents.

Blackstar had two main goals in designing the AMPED 1. First, to produce a 100W, no compromise, pedal platform floorboard rig capable of delivering the tone and feel of traditional valve amps. Countless hours went into the development of the sonics culminating in a complete, from the ground up, redesign of their digital signal processing. The voices and responses contained within AMPED 1 are both the most authentic replications of their analog counterparts and the most refined that Blackstar has ever crafted in a digital product.
