Blackstar U500 Unity Pro Product Overview by GAK

The U500 Unity Pro is a Bass Combo amp from Blackstar. The amp delivers 500 Watts of power and utilises two custom-designed Eminence 10" Opus speakers, giving you excellent tonal flexibility.

Onboard there is a choice of 3 voices, these are; Classic, Modern and Overdrive. Classic gives you Valve-inspired growl with a vintage EQ, Modern increases the dynamics and headroom whilst using an advanced EQ and Flat does what it says on the tin, giving you a flat and clean tone. There is also a 4 band EQ on the unit.

On the back of the unit, you will find an MP3 input, an XLR output and a Headphone output (with its own level controls).

The U500 provides you with all the tools you need to truly shape the tone of your Bass guitar, regardless of the style of music you're playing.

    Even flat this amp felt scooped. I use flatwounds and this amp couldn't replicate the mid sound of my bass. This is probably an amp more suited for rock and metal.
