Blackstar Amplification HT-5C
5W tube amp (do not believe that it's small, it's already hard good)


Pretty simple configuration, a clean channel and an overdrive channel.
I never look at the manuals ... (incidentally, that still does?)
Quickly a great sound sharp obtained


Being a fan of AC / DC and the Hard Rock Year 70/80, this amp is made for this. but he can do well on full else (see the video demo on the net)
included the distortion does not play guitar hero, it will associate the pedals to boost it all. sound allows a good rhythm fat.
I play with a Duesenberg D-caster (see Review) and the amp responds great to play with the volume on the guitar.


I use it for 2 years
what I love most: his power / performance ratio which allows for bite without the walls of the house down.

What I like least: at his record and it will never replace a 40 amp minimum or 60W all-tube (it's still a working amp)
The cabinet is 10 "which breaks much bass.
Amp no longer produced by the moment (it back without reason), my clean channel to failed, apparently on the forums, I'm not the only one having problems with this amp (could this be a defect of a series or design?).

In conclusion, just because of the failure, I will not repeat that choice, but I will on the most powerful brand models (20/40W) or even their series one (not the same price!) that do not have the problems mentioned above (at least on the forums)
