Jared spent time at Blackstar HQ in Northampton, England working with us 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. EL84s are at the tonal heart of Jared’s JJN-20RH MkII head. The two channel design takes you from sparkling cleans, to Jared’s rich and natural BLUESPOWER overdrive. Each channel has two footswitchable Voices for a wide range of stunning valve tones. At home or in the studio, the JJN-20RH switches down to 2 Watts to drive the EL84s hard for the ultimate organic valve power stage break up.
USB output have 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. We worked with Jared to develop a stunning and unique look for his amp. With a wider radius box, stunning racing green tolex and distinctive tilt-back design the JJN-20RH MkII looks as good as it sounds.
