    Blackstar HT-5RH Head

    I truly believe this is the best value in a low wattage amp. Sound is highly dependent on an individual, we don't all go out and buy the same amps and are all looking for our own sound, but, let tell you this.

    I've never been one to like the Marshall sound. I used to love Mesa's but in recent years I've leaned towards the Fender Clean sound.

    I bought one of the Blackstar's Anniversary Edition amps with twin 10" speakers a few months back (same amp in a combo version) and found that I actually love the clean from this amp. I even found I can get sufficient volume clean to do small gigs and for larger gigs I use the incredible line out with 4x12 speaker emulation direct to PA.

    I wanted a second amp just like this for my office so I bout the head version, already knew I loved the amp, and paired it up with a 14lb DV Mark 1x12 neo equipped cab I had and I'm in tone heaven.

    The only thing I was unhappy about is that the white tolex is not really a white white. It looks very white in the pictures but is actually a light grey color. I used a color dye in aerosol can to dye the cabinet black and the head looks much better... only thin is I pais like 440 more or so for the white version. I highly recommend this amp... just buy it in black.
