The HT-5R takes the tone and features of the HT-5C and adds the same stereo reverb as used in the acclaimed HT Venue Series. The HT-5R guitar amp features dedicated tone control on the clean channel, a custom designed 12" speaker and stereo reverb, making it the perfect guitar amp for the studio or home use.

ISF Control
The patented ISF control works with the Bass, Middle and Treble controls to give you access to infinite new sound possibilities from the USA to the UK and everywhere in-between. This fully interactive control allows you to infinitely adjust the response of the tone control network between any of the traditional voicings. In this way you can design your own sound and truly find the sound in your head.

Two Footswitchable Channels
The HT-5R has two channels available for selection, a Clean channel and an Overdrive channel. Using the Volume control while on the Clean channel you are able to deliver everything from a clean sound through to a crunch tone. Alternatively you can select the Overdrive channel and again using the Gain control, change from a clean sound on the edge of breakup right through to a distorted lead tone.

 


Unique push-pull power amp design
The HT-5R 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 valve in push-pull configuration producing 5 Watts output, which is rich in valve harmonics and compression, sounding full and toneful even at the lowest volume level.

12inch Blackbird 50 Speaker
The HT-5C and HT-5R both feature a Blackstar custom voiced 12inch Blackbird 50 speaker.

Stereo MP3/Line Input
A stereo MP3 / Line Input has been added to the HT-5R allowing the user to play a backing track or similar, through the amp while practising / recording.

External Speaker Output
The external speaker output on the HT-5R allows you to connect further extension cabinets. The output marked '1x16 Ohm' is for the connection of a single 16 Ohm extension speaker cabinet (or the internal loudspeaker of the HT-5 combo). The outputs marked '1x8 Ohm or 2x16 Ohm' are for the connection of either a single 8 Ohm extension cabinet or two 16 Ohm cabinets. Also, the internal loudspeaker of the HT-5 combo can be plugged in here if it is used with a 16 Ohm extension cabinet

Reverb Control
The HT-5R's Reverb control sets the overall level of the reverb effect. With the control fully counter clockwise there will be no reverb. Turning the control clockwise will increase the amount of reverb.

Technical
What's the difference between Valve and Solid State Amps?

Valve or Tube amps use vacuum tubes to derive amplification where solid state uses electronic transistors. Valve amps generally cost more money as they are a more complex build and require more maintenance than their solid state brethren. Tubes usually give you a smoother response than solid state does but, don't count out the solid state yet. Solid state amps have been around since the 60's and have improved greatly over the years. Solid state amps are generally cheaper and much lower maintenance and therefore are more reliable when performing. Ultimately it comes down to personal preferences. Both types of amps are used regularly by professional musicians alike. 

What does ISF do on Blackstar Amps?

ISF is a tone feature exclusive to Blackstar. Infinite Shape Feature or ISF basically will shift your tone between the "American" setting and the "British" setting. The American setting is tighter, more focused, and percussive where the British setting is woodier, warmer and has a softer crunchy breakup. You can adjust this feature to your personal mix between the two settings.

What is amp modelling?

Amp modelling is basically where one amp recreates the sound of another. As some amps can be quite expensive, amp modelling is a less expensive option to get a similar sound. Amp modelling is a growing technology but, has not yet perfected exact emulation.

What is the difference between Overdrive and Distortion?

Overdrive is literally what you get when a tube is pushed beyond its voltage limits causing a clip in the top of the waveforms resulting in a slight warm, fat and sometimes, sizzly tone. Overdrive pedals recreate that tone. The harder you strum, the angrier it sounds, so to speak. Distortion basically adds more clipping stages than overdrive and therefore has a more distorted tone. The more clipping stages added the more distorted the tone is. There is less definition with distortion as there are more overtones created because of the hard clipping.
