Blackstar Ht5 Guitar-Amp Review

The HT-5 is the ultimate studio and practice amp, packing all the great tone and innovative features of the award-winning HT valve pedals into a two channel, foot-switchable valve combo. The patent-applied-for ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) circuit gives you infinite adjustment over the characteristics of the tone control network and takes you from the USA to the UK and any where in between. So now you can effectively design your own tone and finally find ‘the sound in your head’.

It features-

• Innovative 5 Watt valve amplifier
• 1xECC83 and 1x12BH7 valves
• Unique push pull power amp design
• Award winning HT Pedal preamp
• Two footswitchable channels
• 10˝ Celestion speaker
• Enhanced tone controls
• Patent-Applied-For Infinite Shape Feature (ISF)
• Fully equipped for studio or practice
• Speaker emulated output with 1x12 or 4x12 voicing
• Effects loop with effects level switch
• Footswitch included

This amp is ideal for those wanting the pure sound of harmonic distortion and the mighty roar of valves, whilst retaining a affordable price. In addition the 5watts make it great for bedroom use, and the output features make mike-ing the amp up to a bigger system easy

5/5, a fantastic little solid amp.
