The Blackstar HT-5R guitar amp is a small tube combo with great tone, ideally suited for home and studio use. The design idea was to develop a tube amp which sounded great even at low volume levels. With this in mind, the Blackstar engineering team built a totally new tube power amplifier design.
The HT-5 power amplifier is a low powered push-pull design which produces the crunch and break-up characteristics of a traditional 100W output stage but at a much lower volume. This is achieved by the use of a 12BH7 dual triode in push-pull configuration producing 5 Watts output, which is rich in tube harmonics and compression.
The amp also has a stereo speaker emulated output that enhances the studio versatility and allows you to get great tube tone straight to tape or disk, or through headphones. It also features the 4x12/1x12 voicing switch that changes the tonal characteristics of the emulated signal between two emulated cabinet types.
The stereo speaker emulated output can be used at the same time as the internal speaker/extension cab, providing headphone free monitoring or the choice to blend a mic’d speaker and emulated signal together for unrivaled usability when recording at home or in the studio. In addition the speaker output can be turned off for silent practice or recording.
Other features include: effects loop with switchable level, 16Ω and 8Ω speaker outputs, stereo MP3/Line, and the patented ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) circuit for versatile tone adjustments.
The Blackstar HT-5R tube combo has great tone and sustain on almost every note. Call Andy's and get yours today.
