Black Star amplifiers have quite rightly caused a major buzz in the music industry since their launch. This has been due partly to some very clever designs but more importantly to some very fine sounding amplifiers. In these valve and speaker upgrade kits we have put together some of our most popular upgrades in order for you to get the best sound out of these excellent amplifiers
Our Harma Classic Valve and Speaker upgrade kits consist of a specially selected Harma ECC83 Retro preamp valve and a high quality Philips 12BH7A output valve. It also includes the Celestion Limited Edition G12-35XC guitar speaker. This speaker is a perfect recreation of the vintage Pulsonic coned Celestion from the mid 1960's

It is designed to provide the best vintage driving rock sound with plenty of rich sustain. It is an effective upgrade over the stock speaker for those who want a more authentic rock and blues sound.

The Harma Retros has a traditional British voiced sound that has a huge singing sustaining tone when overdriven. The valve has a smooth linear midrange response and extended frequency response so you get smooth warm overdrive with tight fat punchy lows.

The Philips 12BH7A is an ideal choice as an output valve in the Black Star. The valve has a rich musical and harmonic clarity which gives the amp a full and punchy clean tone. The valve has a deep and tight bass with a very warm and detailed mid band. It sounds great with pedals or clean boost units as this valves sound gets fatter the more you overdrive it.

When the valve is pushed it produces a dynamic crunchy overdriven with a full fat creamy overdriven sound. This is the best new old stock valve I have found for this purpose

The G12-35XC is the only unit that comes close to the original sound of Pulsonic coned Celestions. Vintage Celestions made with Pulsonic cones are the most expensive Celestion speakers on the vintage market. They deliver a warm sparkling clean sound with a fat creamy over driven tone.

The speaker's fluid sound with a large and clear soundstage provides that full tone has not been equalled in the view of many players.

When overdriven, the valves combined characteristics provide a warm sustaining sound with plenty of upper harmonics with excellent projection on solos.

This is the ideal kit for any player who wants that Classic rock sound and who won't compromise on tone.

The kit consists of
1 Specially Selected Harma ECC83 Retro
1 Specially Selected Philips 12BH7A
1 Celestion 12 inch Ceramic XC35 16 Ohm speaker

Please note that the kit is for the valves and speaker only.
