Blackstar HT-5R MkII 5W 1x12 Combo Overview

Introducing the new Blackstar HT-5R - a little amp with a big sound. Blackstar's multi award-winning valve amp, gets a step-change in performance and looks.

The multi award-winning HT-1 and HT-5 are two of Blackstar’s best-selling valve amps of all time.

Following over two years of intensive R&D this line of ever-popular amps are set to raise the benchmark again – this is not just a facelift!

So what's new?

Adding the features that guitarists have requested, plus stunning new boutique cosmetics, the new HT-1R MkII and HT-5R MkII redefine the compact valve amp.

Using their push-pull valve power amp design, you get all the dynamics and response of a 100W stack from a small amp.

Killer tones and innovative features make the HT-5R MkII the ultimate studio and practice valve amp. Thanks to the unique 5W push-pull design utilising the 12BH7 valve, it delivers huge tone at any volume.

The best clean tones: Now with two footswitchable Voices, one with an American character and the other with a Class A British sound – both are 100% Blackstar:

  • Voice 1 American: A clean, bright and tight tone with a solid bass response for a refined American tone.
  • Voice 2 British: A highly responsive “chime” with looser bottom for the British tone that can be pushed into a mid-range overdrive when driven hard.

The best overdrives: The two footswitchable Overdrive Voices are characterised by a tone which is high in gain, but avoids any of the detached top-end “fizz” often found in other designs.

  • Voice 1 Classic: This is the Classic “British” Blackstar overdrive. Rich and natural it goes all the way to Super Crunch gain but cleans up beautifully.
  • Voice 2 High Gain: Inspired by the critically acclaimed HT Venue MkII high gain sounds, this overdrive has additional aggression in the high end with a tight resonant low-end.

The best features: Joining Blackstar's patented ISF tone control is a USB audio output for easy pro recording and a newly voiced studio quality reverb.

The best looks: Even more refined and boutique, the newly design cabinet has a 3 degree angle, top-loader panel and stage-friendly chickenhead knobs.

Rated 1.00 out of 5 21/10/2020

arrived well packaged plugged in gave the tubes a few mins to warm up..... Nothing followed some online troubleshooting guides trying headphones, DI and USB direct to computer and still no sound. Tried several guitars and jack combos - no sound GAK sent a replacement that displayed exactly the same symptoms. These Amps on paper looks fantastic with many satisfied users, I find it hard to believe with such "good products" I would be unfortunate enough to get sent two faulty units one after another. But I am also sure I would not have been reshipped the same faulty unit. Overall a poor experience, currently after a refund. Back to the drawing board for a decent practice amp.
