Blackstar HT-5RH 5-Watt Guitar Amp Head with Reverb

Overview

The Blackstar HT-5RH is a 5-watt amp head with tons of tonal possibilities and a luscious reverb. Two footswitchable channels and Blackstar's patented Infinite Shape Function run the sonic gamut, going from powerful cleans to classic British-style crunch to modern American drive. The HT-5RH's unique push-pull output stage produces breakup similar to a 100-watt head, but at much more manageable volume. If you find yourself wanting to play late at night, or want to get a great sound straight into your recording interface, leverage the speaker-emulated output for a killer direct tone that won't have you wishing you'd used a cabinet instead.

  • Great little amp!

    Verified Purchase

    Can’t believe how loud this little 5 watt amp is! Replaced a Bugera T-5 Infinium with this. Much better amp! The “dirty” channel is awesome! Plenty of crunch. I use it with a Blackstar HTV-212 cabinet (I guess “old style” with 2 Celestion 70 80 watt speakers) and it sounds amazing. I’m keeping this one! In my opinion, it’s all you need for an “at home” amp!

  • Best rock amp deal out there

    Verified Purchase

    Besides the fact that you can nail most any rock tone you'd ever want, the recording options are awesome. I combine the stereo direct out (with the 4x12 simulator engaged) as well as 2 vintage 30 loaded 16 ohm 4x12 cabinets. Carefully placing a mic on my top cabinet, I use the mic'd sound for verses…
