Your Tube-fired Studio Amp SolutionBlackstar's all-tube HT-5RS is the mini amp stack you need when you want to get killer guitar tones in the studio. This amazing little 5-watt amp head lets you dial in that magical "cooking power section" sound, without frying your eardrums. Dual 1 x 12" extension cabinets give your amp larger-than-life sound. The HT-5RS gives you the ability to dial in a range of great tones, thanks to Blackstar's stellar ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) tone-shaping control. The Blackstar HT-5RS's 2-channel design takes you from glassy cleans to down-and-dirty crunch - in no time!
Blackstar HT-5RS Mini Amp Stack at a Glance:
Classic all-tube tone
The Blackstar HT-5RS mini amp stack gives you killer all-tube guitar tone at non-lethal levels. Push the power section to get that sought-after overdrive sound, without your significant other yelling at you to turn it down. Designed to bring you the best of both worlds, the HT-5RS's unique ISF control can dial in British and American tones. The unique push-pull amp design uses two tubes, a 12AX7 and a 12BH7. Get the real tube tones you want with the Blackstar HT-5RS mini amp stack!
A chameleon of tone
Looking for even more tonal flexibility? Blackstar also gave the HT-5RS mini amp stack their exclusive ISF control (ISF stands for Infinite Shape Feature). Using it in conjunction with your Bass, Middle, and Treble controls, you can nail the exact tonal signature you want. When turned fully counterclockwise, you'll have more of an "American" characteristic to your voice, with a tight bottom end and aggressive middle. Turned all the way to the right, you'll enjoy more of a "British" vibe, with a woodier sound that's less aggressive. However you dial in the Blackstar HT-5RS between the two, you'll enjoy a musical response that just asks to be taken onstage or into the studio.
Dual extension cabinets for big sound
Push some serious air with the HT-5RS's dual 1 x 12" extension cabinets! Custom-designed Blackbird 12" speakers were created for use with the Blackstar HT5 series amps. From smooth and sultry cleans to screaming, unbridled distortion, the Blackbird speakers will give you the best sound you can get from the HT-5RS head.

The Blackstar HT5R Mini Stack
by Chris Cordova from Albuquerque, NM USAThis 5 watt head has all the features of a much more expensive tube amp. The effects loop and emulated line out work well with all my pedals and effects. The mp3 out allows for awesome practice sessio... read more [+]ns. This is a very powerful amp for 5 watts. Mic it and its good for gigs. The overall tone has a thick richness and is very cutting in a band setting. Plenty of gain to run dry without an OD/Dis. pedal, but if ultra high gain is needed, a good distortion pedal will push it over the top. Clean channel is better than average but really needs a boost to come alive. I find most amps lacking in features and or tone in this price range, but honestly i'm blown away with the sound this head puts out. Sweetwater also had this at my door within days and offer great service if needed. A great buy. close [-]
