      Blackstar HT Series HT-5H 5W Tube Guitar Amp Head (483560)
Availability:  


The fantastic tonal control of Blackstar HT pedals in a 5W amp head—it's got the sound you're looking for.

The Blackstar HT-5H tube guitar amp is ideal for studio work or practice, packing all the great tone and innovative features of the award-winning HT tube pedals into a 2-channel, footswitchable tube amp format. The Blackstar amp head's patent-applied-for ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) circuit gives you infinite adjustment over the characteristics of the tone control network and takes your tone from the USA to the UK and anywhere in-between. So now you can effectively design your own tone and finally find "that sound in your head."

Ideal for home and studio use, the Blackstar HT-5H tube amplifier head sounds full and toneful even at the lowest volume level thanks to a brand-new tube power amplifier topology designed by Blackstar engineers. The power amp is a low-powered, push-pull design which produces the crunch and breakup characteristics of a traditional 100W output stage but at a much lower volume.

The Blackstar HT-5H also has a speaker-emulated output, further enhancing its studio credentials and allowing any guitarist to get amazing tube tone straight to tape or disk, or through headphones. It also features the unique 4x12/1x12 voicing switch, allowing you to change the tonal characteristics of the emulated signal between 2 emulated cabinet types.

Add to this an effects loop with switchable level along with 16-ohm and 8-ohm speaker outputs allowing you to run the amp into an external speaker cabinet of your choice, and you have everything you need for recording or practicing.

Blackstar HT Series HT-5H 5W Tube Guitar Amp Head Features:

  • Innovative 5-watt valve combo
    1xECC83 and 1x12BH7
    Unique push/pull power amp design
    Award-winning HT Pedal preamp
    Two footswitchable channels
    Enhanced tone controls
    Patent-Applied-For Infinite Shape Feature (ISF)
    Fully equipped for studio or practice
    Speaker emulated output with 1x12 or 4x12 voicing
    Effects loop with effects level switch
    Footswitch included
    Cool vintage styling

  • Mini Stack HUGE SOUND!

    As reviewed by Bryan Arzaga on 3/21/2009

    I was reluctant and buying this amp, because i am always a solid state user, but i needed something different and would show the real sound of my guitar and pickups, so i A/B this model with other small stacks and this amp blew them away, i thought this tube amp wouldnt even like my pedals but it sounds great and warm, I like every bit of this amp, for 5 watts its really loud. Definitely Happy about my purchase. You can use only one cab if you want, thats what i do when im just laying down tracks. This amp is worth every penny spent.

  • Great Value - This thing ROCKS!

    As reviewed by John on 6/4/2010

    This is a great amp for home use PERIOD. I just play for me along with CD's and sometimes with friends. I don't gig or really plan too but I'm sure you could do small gigs with this either into a board or with a 4x12 mic'd. If you've never used a tube amp, 5 watts is LOUD. It doesn't have much headroom, meaning it will break-up/get dirty faster/at lower volumes, which is great for at home b/c you don't have to crank it up to get great tone. I also have a 5150 head I can't put past 3 because it would bring the walls down. So a small head is perfect for me. If I put the volume to 9/10 on this small head with my 4x12 cab it is too loud for my ears to handle (seriously). Love the two channels (footswithchable included). Clean will stay pretty clean at lower volumes but it's not going to be a Fender Deluxe Reverb, but what is.. The Gain side is serious gain, which I love it is thick and heavy at even about a 4 gain stage. ISF is nice and I find you hear it best at higher volumes. All in all I LOVE this amp. Haven't tried the FX loop yet but really dig it and give it a big thumbs up. Check one out if you want a truely usable 2 channel home tube amp. Once you go tube, you never go back! Cheers

  • 5 stars for Blackstar !

    As reviewed by Blue Leroy on 10/30/2009

    I needed a dependable, versatile low wattage tube amp head for recording and practicing. I also needed it to be affordable. I've been through several brands of "disposable" solid state and even hybrid tube amps, without much tone satisfaction. I did all my homework, read revievs,listened to sound clips, asked around, and then bought the BLACKSTAR HT-5H head. It arrived quite quickly i'm pleased to say. I can't really put into words how good this amp is. It REALLY performs as well as the advertisements & reviews, and then some. The clean channel is "chimey" clean at lower volumes, but crank it up and the tone "breaks up" just like a good vintage Fender amp used to. Cranking the clean side makes it PERFECT for Blues tones. The Overdrive channel starts with "Classic Rock" tones, but turn the dial up, and it'll produce just about any tone you like, including Screaming Metal. The I.S.F (infinite shaping function) knob really DOES cause quite a shift in tone from USA warm/growl (Think Peavey Classic series) all the way to UK "Crunch" (Marshall) and even wood cabinet Vox tone. All the way through the dial, the highs stay bright & biting, and the lows are bassy and articulate. I LOVE THIS AMP !! I bet you will too!
