From Our Research Team:
1 Watt of Serious Amp Power!What can a single watt do for you? A whole lot, if it's coming out of the Blackstar HT-1R tube combo amp! Whether you're seeking a great-sounding practice amp or want to be able to saturate that tube power section in the studio, you'll love what this mighty little 1 x 8" combo amp with reverb does for you. You get Blackstar's ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) tone control network, which lets you take the HT-1R to both sides of the tonal pond (both American and British-style voicings). Dual channels give you even more sonic options on the fly, while a speaker-emulated output makes recording incredibly easy. The HT-1R shines as a practice amp; it even includes a handy MP3/Line input, so you can jam along with your favorite tunes.

Best practice amp ever
by Jim K. from Central coast, CaliforniaBlackstar's motto "the sound in your head" really says it all. I have yet to find a bad tone out of this amp with any of my six guitars! Single-coil, humbuckers, piezo equipped- it doesn't matter, thi... read more [+]s amp sounds great at reasonable, home-practice volumes. I'm playing/practicing more than ever before, and it's because of this amp. I have a couple Crate all-tube amps, a Fender Tweed Blues Deluxe and a MesaBoogie Mark IV- all great amps but I've got to rattle the windows in the house for 'em to sound right... This amp does it at "conversational" volumes.

HT-1R is unreal
by Chip from Mountain Home, ArkansasBottom line is that this amp has no competition and I can see why they are often back-ordered. I am normally a Fender guy and like my blues slightly dirty with a bit of reverb and this baby smokes as... read more [+] a practice and recording amp. It is basically a high quality boutique amp which does it all from clean to high gain. Finally after numerous tries I have my ultimate home amp. I really am blown away. Also, I must say that dealing with Patrick and Seetwater was a pleasure. Buy this amp and you will never give it up. close [-]

by Tom from Austin, TXThis is a great amp. Not a great "gig at a club" amp but a great practice and recording amp. If you play in a 3 piece combo that is quiet (jazz/blues - drummer w/brushes or rods) the clean channel doe... read more [+]s the perfect amount of breakup when cranked. Or if you need just a little more, plug it in to a 1x12 speaker cab and enjoy low volume power-tube goodness. It records fantastically either with a mic or the speaker sim. Simplicity is it's greatest strength and the ISF gives you lots of variation. Expect your modeler to start collecting dust. The digital reverb is nice too. This is probably the most enjoyable, practical, musical anything I've bought in a long time. I have several other tube amps, some vintage, but this one is the first to blend modern and traditional sounds and really get it right. As always, actual mileage may vary but I am very pleased and impressed. close [-]

Don't let the 1w fool you!
by Doug H. from Quincy, ILThis amp is very impressive for its size! It is very ideal for practicing in small spaces where a larger valve amplifier may not be suitable. Also, it is very compact and portable. There are many d... read more [+]emo videos available on the Internet that demonstrate this amp quite well. This amp has a far better sound quality than a couple of the higher wattage solid-state amps that I have owned. It still sounds great with the volume cranked! close [-]
