The best sounding modelling amp around
Bungle42, 29.03.2020
To put this first out of the way, since a lot of people are comparing this to the Boss Katana: It's a totally different thing. If you want to combine the amp with your pedals or play around with a multitude of effects, go with the Katana, if you just want to plug directly into a great sounding amp that has just a few effects, go with the Silverline.

Also, there are a few youtube demos going around where they don't play around with the "ISF" and "response" options on the amp which change the sound drastically.

It comes with a USB port so you can plug it into your PC, where you can try even more presets in the app and it also gives you more in-depth options for tweaking your sound. But the program doesn't have the best interface which isn't a big problem, since it's not necessary for the amp.

So, in short, if you want a great plug & play amp with a lot of different sounds, this is the one

Alsidighed er nøgleordet her.
2Finger, 18.03.2020
Baseret på alle de flotte anmelderser og tests, valgte jeg at anskaffe denne 'moderne' modelling amp. Det har jeg bestemt ikke fortrudt, selvom jeg nok altid har været en såkaldt 'rør-snob'. Hele ideen med denne amp er genialt udtænkt og veludført fra folk med stor erfaring med udvikling og produktion af guitarforstærkere. Her er spandevis af muligheder for at lave sin egen lyd. Jeg kan klart anbefale også at anskaffe en footswitch til denne amp, for at åbne endnu mere op for de mange muligheder, den tilbyder. Det svære er bare, at denne forstærker tilbyder så mange indstillings muligheder, at du risikerer at bruge din tid på at 'tweake' i stedet for at spille guitar. Men det styrer man jo heldigvis selv - og denne forstærker giver dig bestemt mulighederne for at forme din helt egen tone.

Toller Klang, tolle Optik und einfache Bedienung
marolu, 19.11.2020
Dem Anfänger sagt man meistens, "kauf Dir erst einmal einen billigen, einfachen Amp." Dieser Meinung. bin ich nicht mehr. Nach einen gruseligen Mini von Marshall, der mir Gottseidank geklaut wurde, einen Vox Valvetronix und einen Fender Champion 40 hatte ich langsam die Schnauze voll. Schreckliche Sounds, umständliches Handling und/oder billige Optik hat mich nicht wirklich motiviert, regelmäßig nach der Klampfe zu greifen. Und dann sah ich diese silberne Schönheit vom Blackstar und ich war sofort verliebt!

Das Leistungsprofil (40Watt, 12" Lautsprecher), die Optik und einige Videos auf youtube haben mich überzeugt, diesen Kombo zu kaufen. Rund 420 Euros finde ich einen angemessenen Preis für diese Ausstattung und Leistung.
Und seit das Ding in meiner Wohnung steht, greife ich wieder häufiger zur Gitarre: Mit jeder Einstellung des Kombos gibt das Gerät einen Sound ab, mit dem man arbeiten kann. Keine störenden Geräusche oder Brummen, alles super verarbeitet - es macht sogar Spaß das Gerät einfach nur anzuschauen. Ehrlich.
Die Verbindung über USB mit meinen Win10 Rechner und der Blackstar Software ging auf Anhieb. Eine neuere Firmware musste nicht installiert werden.
Die Anpassung der gespeicherten Sounds über die Software ist wirklich easy. Gefällt mir sehr gut.
Aber was einen klar sein muss: mit 14 Kilos ist er nicht gerade ein Leichtgewicht. Die Mitbewerber in dieser Leistungsklasse bringen Geräte ab 8 Kilo heraus. Mich stört das nicht - in Gegenteil, ich glaube sogar, dass diese Masse auch für den guten Sound verantwortlich ist.

Ich war mir sicher, dass ich kein Röhrengerät wollte aber sicherlich einen 12" Lautsprecher. Mit dem Modelling Kram stand ich seit dem Vox Valvetronix leider auf Kriegsfuss. Einen Tag nachdenken. Mit dem Handling der Speicher beim Silverline war aber sofort alles klar. Hervorragend.
Auch die Gimmicks - z.B. die LEDs der Regler als Tuner - finde ich spaßig!

Besonderheiten?
Naja, der Master-Volume sollte runtergedreht werden, sonst kommt im Kopfhörer nichts an und besonders ansprechend fand ich den Griff, weil er quasi in seine chromnen Halterungen einfährt.

Also Anfänger/innen, spart besser noch ein paar Arbeitsstunden und kauft Euch einen ordentlichen Verstärker: Das kann die Motivation nur fördern. Und der Blackstar Silverline Special ist ein absolut ordentliches Gerät. Ich würde ihn wieder kaufen.

PS. Das Ding gibt es auch mit einigen Watt und 50 Euro weniger in einer kleineren Variante.
PPS. Die Bezahlung über Amazon Pay ging wie immer problemlos und die Lieferung war ultra-schnell. Danke Thomann.
