    UTILIZATION

    Super simple.

    HOWEVER, the effects loop: I declare a volume problem between clean and distortion. Problem that distorts a loop when using a Loop Station.

    SOUNDS

    Correct sounds.

    OVERALL OPINION

    One regret, no reverb ... damage.
    Otherwise, this is a great amp, very well built, solid: in short, quality.
    The quality pay, and there for once, it is expensive watt, but for the studio, the apartment, the repets (without battery because otherwise too lightweight), we obtain a set that has the mouth and rocks!

    The downside for the footswitch cable whose length is just ridiculous.

    UTILIZATION

    HT5 design comes directly from the now famous Blackstar pedals. This is not a dual VAT, but rather a "super drive HT", equipped with a true eq, gain much more important and a clean channel. It is of course, in this case, thought of as not as preamp pedal.

    12BH7 the lamp is normally used in stereo. The choice decet funny lamp power must be that Blackstar wanted to achieve miniaturization of a two-channel 100W stacks. Opposite approach of 5W-channel, which is logical. It keeps most of the sound characteristics, even pushing the beast, and suddenly it works equally well with reduced volume.

    The beast is light enough to send a repeat (or transplanted on stage), even with a drummer "tough".

    I did not buy the speakers proposed because the videos on the net, and the opinions of the owners of the combo, suggest that this is not the top at all (or shrill screaming). You can fold in the same budget, a Framus cabinet for example.

    Personally, I plugue in a 4x12 Marshall JCM 800 and a Framus 2x12 CS, all mounted celestion 12gt65 (not to be confused with the gt75). The hp cherished Robben Ford.

    Important: do not trust her immediately, I feel that the amp is not "run in", ie, it must be run 2 / 3 hours and get an opinion later. Finally, if you're in a cold, please warm it before playing. It shows me more than other amps, but it really does sound better when hot.

    SOUNDS

    Clean very very nice, especially when you start to thrust into the towers, there is a slight crunch, very musical, which also depend on the output level of the guitar. With eptite TS9, we ventured on a flat strip of BB King or Robben Ford. Do not wait as long fender sound is more raw and less flattering. Personally, I prefer the texture of this channel with the ISF to 10.

    The OD: the saturation rate is significantly higher than the od of HT HT or dual drive. You can type in the metal, but it's still an overdrive and not a distortion. The saturated fat but is still accurate, it is a little less invaded by harmonics with the pedals, but they fall under the fingers easily. In "English" (ISF 10), it is rather in the classic rock with a little less saturated, but also a slight difference in volume. The grain is surly. In "US" (ISF of 0), it increases in thickness, the sound is fuller, less aggressive, yet more saturated. I have a preference for the TFR of 3. Ideal for soloists, large saturated modern blues (ZZ Top) to heavy. We are in a register "medium expressive singing" on Satch, Jeff Beck, etc.. Everything will depend on the degree of saturation then.

    The ISF is very effective, but may be less drastic than on the pedals. However its setting is very important for the type of grain even if you stay in the blackstar. Similarly, setting the ISF will be interesting combined with a good EQ setting.

    I would put 9 because I wish to clean deu switched to 10 in the isf saturated with the ISF to 3.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Here I have one month this machine, and I'm delighted. It is convenient and music and allows me to juggle the styles that I practice. As lead guitarist, I'm glad I finally found a quality alternative to my jcm 800, to obtain a good saturation, singing with a sound whose characteristics are not "exaggerated", as in most productions current, including Marshall.

    Saturated side, it is somewhere between an overdrive and distortion, warm, singing, but not stiff or supercharged. Exactly what I was looking for. The clean is very nice. I knew better, but this is obviously not to be sought first in a 2 channel. :-)

    I had a bunch of gear, sometimes very expensive: JVM 100 212 Rivera, Brunetti Star-T-Rack, Engl (thunder, classic 50, Powerball), Peavey Classic 30 and Delta Blues 15, Fender Blues Junior .. . Frankly, if we get no say its "authentic" as my JCM800 2210 (the best) or Brunetti is a nice alternative to amplifiers "terminator" is exclusively dedicated to metal or blues, etc.. And personally, it is the only grain with me "fatigue" not the ear.

    So for me, it's a no-fault, and that's an understatement to say that I look forward to the release of Latet 100w series one ...

    As for value for money ... it's just amazing (and disturbing ...)

    EDIT 7 months later ...
    Always happy! The guys stare at me when I say that I come again with a 5w, then ask me what it is that mark out ... Over time, I would say it blends better with my Framus with my old Marshall 4 * 12, and needs to be pushed into the towers for that.

    UTILIZATION

    We live in a great time, the stuff is really getting better for the price lower and lower. This little head is really interesting. Excellent sound with a really great feature in the top of this price level: an output with HP emulation (very convincing) and an effects loop. This allows you to register home studio with impressive quality with respect to the means employed. You can even fun to use your VST effects via the effects loop and record the output line emulation with HP!
    In short, this little head was designed to:
    > His guitar work with headphones
    > His guitar work with config hp of your choice
    > Register directly through the headphone jack or effects loop
    > Play live transplanted or not (if, if possible)
    So versatile ...

    SOUNDS

    The sound is a matter of taste but for me it is very good. Clean or overdrive is excellent, with a particular égalistion for finding an original color. Oddly enough I feel like the EQ section is only used to change the sound color or timbre but not the EQ itself, saying that the settings are not stringent as my distinguished predecessor.

    I regret that there have not onboard reverb and vibrato, these days it would have cost the price of the switch provided (a closet with a useless little high) and suddenly it cost externality skin ass.

    The value of head is to be able to choose his hp. The combo version is cheap and does not sound good. Try a vintage 30 (Orange PPC112 for example) or a Blue Alnico and you will fall down.

    You can also take the cheap Blackstar combo better than the basic 112 or Blackheart Epihone valve junior, it is not shit. Then you can invest € 90 in a vintage 30 or € 300 in a blue alnico (I quote because I've tried and loved). But your investment can be justified only on the condition of having a guitar in height. This Blackstar has good HP can be used to wonder the best guitars in the world.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This product is an excellent choice if indeed its features are what you want. It is very well positioned in price because it offers more valuable compared to its competition, the Tiny Terror is really expensive and less versatile, the Blackheart is given but has no effects loop or the equalization of Blackstar, the amp modeling offer many opportunities but no sound as alive as the Blackstar ...

    However, it does not seem that the price be the only test that you can remember, if you add great hp, reverb, modulation, a distortion or something, consider the total price before you inspire. There are some great combos that integrate all this with some superior qualities.

    Anyway, if we take the product for a simple tube amp, it has its place in all categories of stuff, the cheapest to the most prestigious. It remains to be known reliability or that the change could make lamps.

    For my part, I was looking for something to work with me as well as with friends (I do not moves with the head), with as little clutter as possible.

    I am fulfilled.

    One can also immediately find a good sound ... But then it refines and we spend more time juggling three bands and the legalization ISF ...
    I use it on a cabinet Blackheart 112 (12-inch Eminence speaker) with a Peavey Wolfgang.
    I play only at home, so I changed my Peavey ValveKing 112 too powerful against this stuff and in this context it sounds much better ...
    The effects loop works well with my trs pedals (boss boss chorus and delay), unlike what I read on the forums, as long as it lasts ...

    SOUNDS

    I play mostly hard of the 80 and 90, and although it is saturated in the foot! I finally found a sound warm, powerful and not at all messy and yet I put the gain back!
    In short, the IDE that I was a good sound lights ... Reduces volume.
    The amp is perfect with the baffle Blackheart. I do not know if having a closed cabinet, but the bass is really good Submitted, besides, I do not force the legalization of the bass but the mids.
    First the rhythm.
    I'll just take an example to compare with my old configuration (ValveKing 112 and vox satchurator): the riff of Van Halen Unchained (random example ...) in dropped-D: on my old config it sounded flat , toothless and too low n'taient Submitted .. With HT5 Blackheart and it makes great! Finally I hear the rhythmic prcise with powerful bass!
    Then for solos.
    Well I have t surprised by the enjoyable sustain! I thought I should add a boost or an overdrive (I'm not saying I will not do one of these days ...) and although this is not ncessaire. I tried a dist-HT pedals on a amplifender, blah, not enough gain and tuft ... Here see anything. Compared my old config it sounds more balanced and more particularly "raw". Legato, tapping, harmonics any jurisdiction trs well.

    For its clear, I would say it is as neutral as the ValveKing while having the typical round lamps. Only BMOL with my humbuckers it trs crunch quickly, so I have to lower the volume of my guitar for crystal clear sound ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have this amp for only a few days but I am delighted!
    It should be back on my apprciate my use: use "home", especially saturated channel to play hard type of Van Halen, Ratt, Dokken ...
    That said POLICE on the clean channel trs going well also, so it's not a channel anecdotal.
    I really feel like a stack in miniature, with a good powerful sound over the entire curve legalization, gain and sustain.
    The rhythmic play legato sound. Nothing do with distos "saturax" that give her a rough draft of one or the other, or two!
    In short this amp is addictive!
    So when we look at the price ... but why is it not more tt out this amp!

    My only regret is the legalization (and ISF) common to the two channels ...

    Guitar Xpert Lille gave me a great offer for the resumption of my peavey and buying the new stuff, thank you again them!

    SOUNDS

    I plugged into a 1X12 cab Engl enV30 closed with a good performance - I play with SG stratum or above, I use effects - a reverbou a delay in the loop, with no particular Pb, and MXR GT OD in between to boost crunch. Reserved for lecanal J'mets a clear, although it is usable with many effects, I find it a bit "bland" missing rebound heat. You can change the lamp pramp, but since there is only one, it will be a compromise with the channel is a bit saturated the problem. I found a proper balance with a few prs GrooveTube, I had a better clean with Electroarmonix, but the silent drive dgueu ... This is the weak point of this amp. The channel is saturated trs good job with a drive progressifqui can be heavy saturation at an end, and multiple variants with the ISF - perso I boost my overdrive channel mid gain, and file good solo has made me a channel troisime - Attention, there are volume, if we push, to send, especially with a V30 and performance of 100db! No Pb riffs for nervous or looong sustains.Par cons I have little harmonic is always a little "right" ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought this to play in my head, without dtruire home. The volume is Grable, it is enjoyable, has not heated, the effects go well trs, and it meets the sound of your guitar. But there is this weakness in his clear, this sound impersonal, a little cold.
    I would say that the focus of this amp is saturated with a quality clean manufacturing trs. What attracted me is the connection complte and the capacity to have the correct volume light, easily transportable, and few onreux. Now I do not know many other heads "low power" lights, some struck me as too pure (style one volume, one tone)

    <strong>Edict of 18/11/09: On board of a local manufacturer of lamps amp, I test (and keep a Sylvania 12 AX 7 OUR select by him: A council, therefore, Do not hesitate to see a specialist in lamps, and try trs good because a lot has changed the sound. My clear channel has become more open and flexible, the saturation is also well more dynamic. Everything for little money!</strong>

    Effects loop with effects level switch
    Footswitch included
    Cool vintage styling

    SOUNDS

    I like this amp with just about any guitar you decide to throw at it. I particularly like this amp with a solid Gibson Les Paul. I feel that the two were fit for each other. Is is natural because the voicing of this amp is very Marshall-esque and British flavored so this amp would work well much like a Marshall would with a Gibson guitar. It seems like perhaps the builder of this amp voicing the amp towards the Les Paul because the tones of it are just flat out amazing!

    The clean channel is very good and very reminiscent of an old Fender deluxe amp. When You crank up the volume you get a great classic rock tone ala AC/DC or Led Zeppelin.


    OVERALL OPINION

    Overall this is a very solid amp for the money. At new these amps come in at around $329, which isn't a bad price for this high quality amplifier. I would recommend this amp to anyone who wants a great sounding tube amp that doesn't want to pay an arm and a leg to get one. This is a great amp to record with and an excellent amp to practice with in the home or office.

    Then I tell myself it sounds really bad but not next to the Tiny Terror and 4x12's right behind me, does he still holds the road, eh?
    Then I branch and I begin mode Orange ...

    Smiling ...
    Well yes, the Tiny and 4x12, it's still something else is clear ... Actually no, at this point, it is full, juicy, and I've completely forgotten that I had come to try to start the Blackstar!

    HP and the obviously pregnant with their importance, I think when it is time to test the Death Star on the walls orange, just to better her justice and she can fight on equal terms.

    And then, no surprise, it sounds thicker, it has more bass, is much better ...
    Not as enjoyable as the Tiny Terror, especially at the level of saturation, but more versatile than the latter.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Try it with good speakers to get an idea of ​​its real potential.
    Did not blush at that time facing heads much more expensive to a very attractive price.
    Excellent saturation, connections and clean sound really pretty.

    I glued a vintage celestion HP Orange 30 ... it's really good .. this amp is like a Swiss Army Knife ...
    I have fun with single or dual microphones to imitate his Floyd, Gilmour, Dire Straits, or Albert King, Freddy King, Peter Green and the button with his UK and U.S. it is feasible to souait. Cubase me my cards and Hop .. I compare.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 1 week.
    I tried lots of amps 5, 10 or 15w ... in any case I prefer a head without a speaker ...
    The value for money is perfect it costs € 315 in Paris and 350 € approx .. on the net ... nothing to say .. it looked really good, also at Christmas out of stock everywhere.

    What I like least ... but now I'm playing the super break up: These are the knobs on front small graduation on it to see where is the button is not visible. A touch of red product or a touch of fluorine on trotting watches would be nice ... in the future. The plastic plate on which are "sunk" buttons is a corrugated chouille around buttons .. super good but then I nitpick ..

    I would do this election? it's a silly question ... First, I will not buy another, and if I did not like I could make it within 7 days .. in the box .. home with a smile and: my mistake!
    But no, he is good at home, and before I had tested, watched on You Tube .. the furious one tested .. forums, etc. ... So I had my idea .. everything is good to know his guitar, and it is an exercise not easy, but imagine the sound in itself and not in stores or between the buttons and impersonators Satriani, or there is a devil's barouffe .. it's not easy ...
    Frankly I tried it with simple Bare Knuckle .. stratum, and double Lollar, and Bare Knukle + JB Seymour ... it's really very polivalent and this amp (sniff sniff .... manure!) appears completely my game amateur guitarist .. as soon as I put my fingers the sound is there, and it restores everything ... no hidden defects ... that's his fault. (Eh bang!)

    Today, I bought this small version HT5 head. I plugged in the first baffle my Class5 a celestion 10. It sounds really good. I took the amp back to also compare the power. The HT5 seems a little less powerful than Marshall, but I am not. Some had doubts about the 12 BH7, but it is very very good job! I then plugged it into my 2x12 celestion greenback, where, fortunately, I have too much hair on the stone, that mind-blowing! The sound is great!
    The clean sound is not bad, I did not take that! on the other hand, cranked, it's beautiful!
    The second channel, climbing very little gain, it's already a big crunch at the bottom, it rocks! No need to pedal.

    It is an amp head, the branch there and a guitar input jack on the speaker and it works: P
    No handling complex, use the most banal.

    SOUNDS

    I use a Laney cabinet (LX412A) and an ESP MH-50
    On the sound, the big point is the lamplight, shining sound much more than most of the heads I've tried with this price range.
    ISF function is fulfilling its role and to switch dramatically from its very British to American sound to it and vice.
    It can go from funk sound enough to metallica type sound without much too much on the settings.

    There are two flaws for my taste:
    -It lacks a bit of fat saturation mesa type (although it comes close when you push the gain in U.S. position, it falls a little east of the Atlantic is too bad ...)
    The effects loop-which tends to compress the sound a bit.

    OVERALL OPINION

    ◦ For how long have you been using it?
    I use it for two months

    ◦ Did you try many other models before getting this one?
    I tried just about everything in this price range for two days in paris with purchase

    ◦ What thing do you like most/least about it?
    the more heat it generates
    minimum, the compression effects loop
    the "no coment" the little cable to the footswitch ...

    ◦ What is your opinion about the value for the price?
    Hard to beat

    ◦ Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...
    I think I would take a slightly more powerful model in the hope that some defects noticed on this head are corrected:)
    + Any lamp head
    + Clarity of sound
    + Function ISF
    + Headphones (which lets you use your head without speaker)
    - The ISF works less well when you push the gain
    - Compression level footswitch

    SOUNDS

    adding a good multi-purpose, all things are possible to clean the saturated

    excellent clean sound
    excellent crunch tones and saturated

    and it sounds at low volume!

    OVERALL OPINION



    great product at a good price, you really sound lamp to clean more saturated, low volume, if we add a multi-purpose type GSP1101 (my case), the sonic possibilities are endless, I recommend strongly for use in home studio,
    otherwise the lamps installed an ECC83 (ADP) and 12BH7 (electro harmonix) lamps are honorable but rather entry-level, I planned to test the beast with a tungsol and 12BH7 OUR EI Yougoslavia I would make a maj

    OVERALL OPINION

    qques months, I tried several other models such vox orange ....... they are well below the blackstar at tt levels.
    a small flat for the ISF, but I am very satisfied with my purchase.

    Everything has already been said. Just be careful: you can not connect a 16ohm HP and at the same time a speaker on outputs 2X16 or 1X8 ohm ...
    Very good connections ...
    The posters are the 5w, 30w is equivalent to the transistors and even clean + in full.
    However Mr Blackstar thought of the beast so that it sounds great even at 1 / 4 volume:)

    UTILIZATION

    nickel manual explains everything (even if the yen pa required)
    Readily obtained a good sound no problems the above!
    on the other hand have to wait a bit (4-5hrs of game) for the sound definitely head before the equalizer does not work for example ...

    SOUNDS

    Perfect for all styles; Just to give color to the clean channel which is quite cold, we connect a good HP (such as Celestion G12H30 I did)
    The clean channel crunch fairly quickly, it starts at 40% volume or less.
    The saturated, what really perfect! heat, compression, feedback if you push the gain and finally what we need!
    this amp is perfect for rock / hard rock. beyond its becoming a bit too sharp to my taste
    Once you feel really honed the mind of Marshall overdrive channel!
    The ISF is working well (a real change of color) but I'm not using that mode british

    OVERALL OPINION

    I got advice from professionals (not salesmen in stores) and my cousin mates, my guitar teacher ...
    They told me that C was a versatile amp lamps 5w upscale (exactly what I was looking for!)
    C versatile but certainly upscale for now jen am not convinced at all! Mr Blackstar had better bring its production in England! for 50e + I think its would be worth

    He came with mold inside (because of the boat trip I think), a blow on the knife handle, Tolex bumpy in some places by particles underneath the logo and pasted through (but its slightly to see anyway!)
    Hope that this is exceptional!
    I received another one this week, really Nickel: design super class, its really super good!
    If you are looking for an amp to repeat (at home anyway, not in the apartment) c the amp for you. you can play on a battery if the drummer is not a patient! :)
