HT-5R Combo Amplifier

Blackstar HT-5R Combo Amplifier for Electric Guitar

The Blackstar HT-5R Combo Amplifier is a 5W combo amplifier with 2x channels, designed for use with Electric Guitars. The tones of this amp rely on ECC83/12AX7A valves at the pre-amplifier stage and a double triode 12BH7 in the power amplifier, and give the HT-5R rich sounds that are reproduced with the Blackstar Blackbird 50 12" speaker.

2x foot-switchable channels (switches included) offer a lot of sound options. The clean sound sounds warm, round and leaves nothing to be desired. ISF technology enables tone shaping and is available in addition to the classic 3-band tone control, ranging from wider American sounds to a straight British character. A reverb effect is included and enriches the sound with spatial depth. For a modern Guitar amp, there's also a serial effect loop that lets you choose between pedals and studio effect devices (+4dBV/-10dBV).

In addition, a line input is available for playback via smartphone (among others). The emulated output for recording or headphone operation is frequency-corrected. The voicing offers either 1x 12" or 4x 12" characters.
