Blackstar’s HT-5R is what you need when you want to get killer tones in the studio. This amazing little combo combines an all-tube 5-watt guitar amplifier with a custom-designed 12″ Blackbird 50 speaker to deliver high-gain tones without frying your eardrums. The HT-5R also dials in a range of great tones, thanks to Blackstar’s stellar ISF (Infinite Shape Feature), which takes you from glassy cleans to down-and-dirty crunch, and everything in between. A handy effects loop (complete with level switch) makes integrating your pedalboard a breeze. Plus, an onboard speaker-emulated output makes it easy to record killer amp tones straight from the Blackstar HT-5R.
The Blackstar HT-5R is packed with a massive variety of tube tones, by virtue of Blackstar’s Infinite Shape Feature (ISF). When turned fully counterclockwise, this exclusive features lends American characteristics to your voice with a tight bottom end and powerful mids. Turned all the way to the right, you’ll enjoy a British sound, which is woodier and less aggressive.

The level tone of packed inside of the HT-5R is impressive for a tiny 5-watt amp. And it’s loaded with features that are sure to add excitement to your practice and recording sessions. A speaker-emulated output injects your projects with the dimensional sound of a miked-up cab and loads your amp properly for silent practice. You can also run it straight to a PA. A stereo MP3/line input makes jamming along with your favorite songs and backing tracks a breeze. Integrating the HT-5R with your pedalboard and other effects a piece of cake, thanks to its effects loop. You also get an external speaker output adding an extension cab. Beyond that, the HT-5R features a built-in reverb that provides lush ambience without washing out your playing.
