The Blackstar HT-5RH MKII Guitar Amplifier Head is a 5 Watt, all-valve beast from Blackstar. Don't let the diminutive wattage fool you, this head packs some serious punch. Featuring two channels with four voices you'll find enough variety of tone to suit any style coupled with the build quality you'd expect from one of the world's leading manufacturers.

All Valve Power

With a 12BH7 valve in the power amp stage and an ECC83 (12AX7) in the preamp, the HT-5RH MKII gives you a tight sound with a chime-like quality. Using the push-pull valve power amp design you get the response of a much larger amplifier in a small package and The HT-5RH MKII has plenty of gritty tones, responding well in high gain scenarios.

Four Expressive Voices

With four different voice options, the HT-5RH MKII is ideal for any style or situation giving you great versatility and killer tones. The voices are footswitchable so you can change it up at the click of a button.

The clean channel has two voices, the first is an 'American' style sound with more emphasis on the low-mids and a warmer character. Voice 2 is designed to emulate the Class A 'British' amplifier sound, a strong midrange and overall more aggressive sound.

The Overdrive channel consists of a 'Classic' tone which is the well-known Blackstar 'British' overdrive. It cleans up remarkably well and can go all the way to all-out crunch if you need it. The second is a 'High Gain' channel which has extra growl in the high end and a tight low end inspired by the HT Venue MKII high gain sounds.

Infinite Shape Feature

The HT-5RH MKII features Blackstar's patented Infinite Shape Feature, an addition designed to give you access to a much wider tonal palette than a traditional amplifier circuit. Set to '0' you get an 'American' style tone with a tighter focal point. Give it a twist to '10' and you get a more 'British' tone that's full of warmth and crunch.

A traditional amplifier has a specific range that it operates within which is what gives you the signature sound of the classic brands. Blackstar have created something wholly different with the ISF knob, so instead of being limited to a specific range built in by the manufacturer, you have access to the full tonal spectrum, resulting in an extremely versatile amplifier that will cater for any occasion and allow you to create your own signature sound.

Flexible Connectivity

With the Blackstar HT-5RH MKII, you get a tonne of connection options so you're equipped for any situation from the studio to the stage. With speaker outputs for 2x16 OHM, 1x8 OHM or 1x16 OHM you can connect up to the cab of your choice. Alongside these, you have USB Audio and balanced XLR outputs for recording flexibility plus a newly voiced, studio quality reverb.
