We stock tubes for every Blackstar amplifier in the range. Scroll down if you want to go straight to the list of Blackstar amps and the tube sets available.
We recommend you replace the tubes for Blackstar amplifiers on a regular basis to ensure they always sound their very best.
Good question. “On average”, tubes are expected to have a life of around 1,000 hours playing time. This is very much an average. Some will last a lot less and some a lot longer. Amps that are gigged will obviously need earlier tube replacement.
However, over time they all gradually lose their tone. Unfortunately it’s so gradual that you don’t notice until you replace them – suddenly it sounds amazing again. So change them on a regular basis if you want to keep the amp sounding as sweet as the day you first bought it. Far too often we see guitarists buying pedals and even new amps when all they needed was a new set of tubes.
