News Blackstar Amplification HT-5H

The HT-5 is a studio and practice amp, packing all the tone and features of the award- winning HT valve pedals into a two channel, footswitchable valve amp format.


The patent-applied-for ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) circuit gives you infinite adjustment over the characteristics of the tone control network and takes you from the USA to the UK and anywhere in between.

In making the HT-5 suited to home and studio use, the aim was to develop a valve amp which sounded full and toneful even at the lowest volume level. With this in mind the Blackstar design team designed a brand new valve power amplifier topology. The HT-5 power amplifier is a low powered push-pull design which produces the crunch and break-up characteristics of a traditional 100W output stage but at a much lower volume. This is achieved by the use of a 12BH7 dual triode in push-pull configuration producing 5 watts output, which is rich in valve harmonics and compression.

The HT-5 also has a fully specified speaker emulated output which further enhances the studio credentials and allows any guitarist to get valve tone straight to tape or disk, or through headphones. It also features the unique 4×12/1×12 voicing switch allowing you to change the tonal characteristics of the emulated signal between two emulated cabinet types.

Add to this an effects loop with switchable level, along with 16Ωand 8Ωspeaker outputs which allow you to run the amp into an external speaker cabinet of your choice, and you have everything you need for recording or practising.
