Black Star amplifiers have quite rightly caused a major buzz in the music industry since their launch. By upgrading the valves to selected cryogenically treated valve sets customers have noticed the additional benefits such as better clarity, larger and improved sound stage with increased definition under distortion. Here we have listed our most common upgrades to the Black Star range.
This Black Star HT Metal 100 GT 6L6GC GE Cryo Re issue upgrade kit covers the Black Star HT Metal 100 head fitted with standard 6L6GC.The kit is designed to provide early breakup with a nice warm crunch tone that is wonderfully open and balanced with plenty of hammer on power chords. This combination designed to give you a crunchier and more dynamic sound that and has the traditional American hard rock high gain tone.

The Cryo treatment gives a permanent change to the valves performance. The additional benefits such as better clarity, larger and improved sound stage with increased definition under distortion are what the treated valves provide and ensure a lasting improvement to you sound over the untreated items.

The Harma 7025 Cryo is a selected high gain valve that supplies a tight and deep bottom end sound with excellent midrange punch. The top end is clear sound and it has a nice early harmonic crunch.This provides the right amount of top end focus and bottom end slam to satisfy the demands of the metal player.

The Philips Jan Military ECC82-5814A Cryo is used as it is a special military grade valve that was with the highest grade materials and with no compromise on selection or quality control as they were for the American Government to be used in avionics. These valves have a number of unique features such as high grade filament isolation so even after long periods of use the filament will not degrade. The 5814A were designed to be immune to shock and vibration as they were designed for military aircraft and they were also rated for long life. To put it simply, no modern day ECC82 is made to this specification and no modern day ECC82 sounds like it. The Philips overdrives very evenly and does not fall apart when you saturate the amplifier. The 5814A improves the amplifier as it losses the grainy unmusical fuzz that is displayed by many modern ECC82 in the black star. This valve has outperformed many more expensive ECC82 and therefore we have used it in this kit.

The GT 6L6GC-G.E Re issue Cryo is a remake of one of the most famous 6L6GC of all time. GT have made a faithful recreation of the General Electric later type clear top 6L6GC.

This original valve is one of the most talked about new old stock 6L6GC as they are noted for incredible dynamic range and large sound stage.

In the Black Star these valves really excel and change the sound from a thin and harsh response that the stock valves display into a classic rock and metal amp. This valve provides a warm smooth sound with a very clean and open treble. The valve has a much thicker and fuller sound that has the slam when you hit a power chord. The single notes are also thicker and more responsive.
Whether you bought this amp for metal or you bought it because of the tonal variation. The Groove tubes bring this amp to life as the GT is a faithful reproduction of the classic American 6L6GC tone that this amp was designed for.

The kit consists of
2 Specially Selected Harma 7025 Dr 250 Cryo
1 Specially Selected Philips ECC82-5814A Cryo
4 Specially Selected and matched Groove Tube 6L6GC GE Re issue Cryo

Please note that the kit is for the valves only.
