A metal-focused amp with an extra-aggressive design

The Blackstar HT Metal 5H guitar amp is based on the award-winning HT-5RH amp head, so it's already primed to be a powerful tone machine. Basically, Blackstar turned the HT Metal 5H into an ultra-high-gain powerhouse that's perfect for aggressive metal guitar. The updated metal grille at first may seem purely cosmetic, but you'll soon see that it's just well-equipped for life on the road.

Blackstar's ISF feature gives you more tonal range

You can create virtually any rock guitar tone you can imagine with the HT Metal 5H amp head, thanks to Blackstar's patented ISF control, or Infinite Shape Feature. ISF lets you adjust the response of the entire tone stack in the HT Metal 5H, letting you shape tones to match the sound of different amplifier types. This means you can re-create the sounds of classic American amps, British amps, or even create your own combination of the two.

Speaker-emulated output makes it easy to get great live tone

You can already see that the low-wattage Blackstar HT Metal 5H is perfect for your studio, but it's also got some great features for live use. Take the speaker emulated direct output: choose from the sound of a 1 x 12" or 4 x 12" emulated cabinet and send it directly to the sound system. Hey, we've all played gigs where things don't go as expected - if you find it difficult to get a good mic'd sound for any reason, you'll be very glad you've got this option on the HT Metal 5H.

Blackstar HT Metal 5H 5-watt Tube Amplifier Head Features:
  • Ultra-rugged amplifier head specifically voiced for metal guitar styles
  • Low wattage lets you get cranked-amp tone at reasonable volume levels
  • ISF tone control gives you access to British-style tone, American-style tone, and everything in between
  • Digital stereo reverb built-in
  • Effects loop has an effects level switch to help you fine-tune your signal path
  • Footswitch included
Get aggressive with the Blackstar HT Metal 5H!
