Silver Star

The Silver Star is a 5 Watt, 1 x 8 combo valve amp which is very compact and great for bedroom, studio or a small mic'd gig. This 5 watt single ended Class A produces crystal cleans and harmonically rich overdriven tones.

There are 3 models to choose from and a number of available finishes.

(Standard)

(Reverb)

(Tremolo)

The Silver Star can be upscaled to host a 10" speaker (with a small additional cost for cabinet and speaker).

Models


Silver Star Standard

The Silver Star model comes with Hi and Lo inputs, bright and bass cut switches, a single switched volume control and an attenuator. The bright and bass cut switches allow more subtle changes to the tone and are perfect when switching between single coil and humbucker pickups. The raw pull switch on the volume boosts the signal to sweeten the harmonics and overdrive. A single attenuator switch reduces the amp power from 5 watt to less than 1 watt.

Silver Star Reverb

The reverb model comes with a single input, bright and fat switches and controls for volume, treble, bass, raw and reverb. Both bright and fat switches help sculpt the tone and are great additions when switching between single coil and humbucker pickups. The raw control has been designed to control how much signal goes through the EQ allowing you to gradually switch between typical Fender blackface and tweed tones. The reverb in the Silver Star is analog voiced digital spring reverb and has the benefit of being tube driven to retain those vintage qualities.

Silver Star Tremolo

The tremolo model is the same as the reverb model but comes with a tube driven tremolo instead of the reverb.
