Blackstar and Jared James Nichols have long partnered together to make tone-shattering amplifiers with classic looks and versatile features and this newly released Blackstar JJN-20R MKII is no different.
EL84s are at the tonal heart of Jared’s JJN-20R MkII 1X12 combo, as well as the Celestion GT12-75 12" speaker, and all wrapped up in a stunning Racing Green tolex with a tan basketweave grill cover.
Featuring two separate channels, Clean and BLUESPOWER Overdrive, both of which offer two different Voice options that are easily switched by tapping the individual push buttons. The Clean channel allows you to dial in the perfect sound with the Volume and Gain controls, where as the BLUESPOWER Overdrive channel provides you with Gain, Volume, Bass, Mid and Treble controls - as well as Blackstar's innovative ISF control, which acts as a Mid-Scoop allowing you to make the amplifier sound more "British" or "U.S.A.", depending on how you set it.
Other features include Reverb, a Master Volume control, an XLR Direct Out with speaker emulation, 1/4" headphone outs, extension speaker jacks, an effects loop and an 1/8" MP3/Line.
Finally, to truly top it all off, get all the tone live when in 20 watt mode and then forget worrying about waking the neighbors or being too loud in the studio as you can drop it down to 2 watts with the click of a button...or utilize the USB Audio Out to plug directly in to your computer.
“Blackstar amps define my tone. It really is the sound in my head. It’s simple; Blackstar inspires me to play at my best. I’m absolutely honoured to now be a signature artist. I have toured around the world, always with a Blackstar amp behind me. I am so thrilled to be able to share my BLUESPOWER tones with the world though my own Signature Amp.” - Jared James Nichols
Jared spent time at Blackstar HQ in Northampton, England working on the voicing and cosmetic designs to ensure this amp would deliver his sound night after night as he tours the world. The results are both sonically and visually stunning.
Jared has been using Blackstar for nine years to deliver his unique BLUESPOWER tone. His high energy performances and ‘pick-less’ guitar playing technique have seen his reputation continue to grow year on year, as more people are introduced to his unique blend of blues grit and gusto, through to bombastic arena-size rock ‘n’ roll.
