Blackstar won the coveted MIPA 'Best Amp Award' at the Frankfurt Musikmesse 2011.

1 WATT, PUSH-PULL DESIGN: The HT-1 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 an ECC82 dual triode in push-pull configuration producing 1 Watt output, which is rich in valve harmonics and compression, sounding full and toneful even at the lowest volume level.
TWO CHANNELS: The HT-1 has two channels available for selection, a Clean channel and an Overdrive channel. Using the Gain control while on the Clean channel you are able to deliver everything from a clean sound through to a crunch tone. Alternatively you can select the Overdrive channel and again using the Gain control, change from a clean sound on the edge of breakup right through to a distorted lead tone.
8" SPEAKER: Featuring an 8inch speaker, the HT-1 really is a perfect combo amp for home or studio use. The aim was to create an amp which sounded full and toneful even at the lowest volume level.
ISF CONTROL: The ISF control works in conjunction with the Tone control. It allows you to choose the exact tone signature you prefer. Fully CCW is a more American characteristic with a tight bottom end and more aggressive middle, and fully CW is a British characteristic which is more woody and less aggressive.
SPEAKER EMULATED OUTPUT: The Blackstar emulated output design is a new benchmark for pro direct recording. This no-compromise design makes it easy to get your tone to disk and tape. You can also use it to run a line out to a PA.
DIGITAL REVERB: The reverb control sets the overall level of the reverb effect. With the control fully counter clockwise there will be no reverb. Turning the control clockwise will increase the amount of reverb.
