Blackstar Jared James Nichols Limited Edition JJN-20R MkII Signature Valve Amp (Refurbished)

Blackstar is proud to announce the limited edition Blackstar Jared James Nichols JJN-20RH MkII signature valve amp head with a matching JJN-212VOC MkII cabinet. EL84s are at the tonal heart of Jared’s JJN-20RH MkII head. With a wider radius box, stunning racing green tolex, and distinctive tilt-back design the JJN-20RH MkII is as eye-catching as it looks. 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 after year, as more people are introduced to his unique blend of blues grit and gusto, through to bombastic arena-size rock ‘n’ roll. 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. This is a certified refurbished product backed by a 90-day warranty.
Enhanced Cleans
The JJN-20RH MkII has two footswitchable Clean Voices, one with an ‘American’ character and the other with a Class A ‘British’ sound.
Enhanced Overdrives
The two footswitchable Overdrive Voices are characterized by a tone that is high in gain but avoids any of the detached top-end ‘fizz’ often found in other designs.
Crystal Cleans
The JJN-20RH MKII has two interchangeable clean voicings one that is distinctively more ‘American’, the other Class A ‘British’. Voice 1 clean gives a bright and tight tone with a solid bass response, and the tone shaping is positioned early in the gain structure for a refined American tone and response. Voice 2 gives a highly responsive ‘chime’ with a looser, resonant bottom-end for a British tone that can be pushed into a mid-range overdrive when driven hard.
Strengthened Overdrives
The two interchangeable Overdrive voicings are expressed by a tone high in gain but hesitant of top-end ‘fizz’ and feedback often found in other designs. Voice 1 is the Classic ‘British’ Blackstar overdrive. Rich and natural, it goes to Super Crunch gain but cleans up beautifully. Voice 2 is inspired by the critically acclaimed HT Venue MkII high-gain sounds. This overdrive has additional aggression in the high-end with a tight resonant low-end.
Patented ISF Tone Shaping
The conventional three-way guitar EQ network, or tone stack (a.k.a. Bass, Middle, and Treble), is a key to the characteristic ‘voice’ of traditional guitar amplifiers. Classic amplifier designs have their own versions of this network which leads to their own tonal voicings. The ISF control allows you to infinitely adjust the response of the tone control network between any of the traditional voicings in a way that has never before been possible. This way, you can design your sound and truly find ‘the sound in your head’.
Professional Recording Connectivity
USB output has been added for the simplest way to get valve tone into your recordings. Also added is a pro-balanced XLR D.I. output, which allows the speaker-emulated signals to be connected to external devices for practicing, recording, or live use.
Power Reduction
Inspired by Blackstar’s patented Dynamic Power Reduction circuit, simply switch down to 2 Watts at the push of a button without any loss of tone. Perfect for driving the EL84 power stage hard at lower volumes.
Blackstar’s new studio quality reverb has been designed to perfectly complement guitar tones.
