A tube-driven metal machine built for home and studio.
The Blackstar HT5MR 5W combo is a tube-driven metal monster that lets you produce high-gain madness at home without drawing the wrath of your neighbors. It can handle tones from classic British heavy metal to modern U.S. scooped high gain, and all sonic places in between.
It features two foot-switchable channels: Clean and Overdrive, and presents shared controls for Reverb, Treble, Mids, Bass and ISP — Blackstar’s patented Infinite Shape Feature that gives infinite adjustment over your tone characteristics. The Overdrive channel has independent Volume and Gain controls; and the Clean channel has independent Tone and Volume knobs.
The MT5MR also features rugged construction, true tube power through one ECC83 and one 12BH7, included footswitch, stereo digital reverb, speaker emulated output with 1x12” and 4x12” voicings and an FX loop with level switch. It’s a fully equipped shred machine that you can play without incurring public-nuisance charges.
