Innovative 5 Watt Valve Combo Fully equipped for studio or practice 12-Inch Blackbird 50 Custom Designed Speaker Award winning HT Pedal preamp Unique Push Pull Power Amp Design
Thanks to the unique 5W push-pull design, the HT-5C combo delivers huge tone at any volume. This award winning guitar amp features enhanced tone controls and a 12" custom designed speaker to bring you one step closer to finding 'The Sound In Your Head'. 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, footswitchable valve amp format. 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 anywhere in between.
In making the HT-5 ideally suited to home and studio use, the aim was to develop a valve amp which sounded full and toneful even at the lowest volume level. With this in mind the Blackstar design team designed a brand new valve power amplifier topology. 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 valve harmonics and compression.
The HT-5 also has a fully specified stereo speaker emulated output which further enhances the studio credentials and allows any guitarist to get amazing valve tone straight to tape or disk, or through headphones. It also features the unique 4x12/1x12 voicing switch allowing you to change 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 unrivalled usability when recording at home or in the studio. In addition the speaker output can be turned off for 'silent' practice or recording.
Add to this an effects loop with switchable level, 16Ohms and 8Ohms speaker outputs which allow you to run the amp into an external speaker cabinet of your choice, and a stereo MP3/Line in allowing you to jam along to your favorite tracks, you have everything you need for recording or practicing.
