Great for practicing at home or laying down tracks in the studio.

The HT-5RH guitar amp head takes the tone and features of the HT-5C and adds the same stereo reverb used in the acclaimed HT Venue Series. Boasting two channels, an ECC83 preamp tube, a 12BH7 power tube, and the award-winning preamp from the HT Pedal series, the HT-5RH head is perfect for any situation requiring raw tube tone.

  • Killer Tone At The Right Price!

    As reviewed by RICK LINDERME on 10/23/2013

    I bought the HT-5 to use in my home studio. There is a lot of bang for the buck going on here. The overdrive/gain goes from mild to wild...the included foot switch allows you to go from clean to mean...the FX's loop in the back will sweeten anyone's attack...the ISP knob shifts from American Scream to British Creme...there's EQ and reverb to help shape how you get heard...power and stand by are on the front panel while on top of the amp is the carrying handle...ok enough with the Dr. Seuss stuff...seriously this amp is a real powerhouse full of Kool features that you will really use. Don't let the 5watt rating fool you...this mother will break glass when used with the right cab...the options in the back allow you to run anything from a 112 cab all the way up to a 4 X 12...the amp breaks up nicely with tons of head room to spare...I love the OD so much that I'm only running a delay pedal through the FX's loop and wah/compression through the front end...and I have a boat load of OD/Distortion pedals to choose can throw more $$$$$ at bigger name brands like Marshall & Orange (to name just two that I tested) and while I LOVE MARSHALL AMPS, I'm not a big fan of their price far as the Orange (lunchbox amps) went, I found them to be thin sounding with no real way to adjust them. You CAN truly find many different tonal settings within the Blackstar line...with a little time and tweaking you'll dial in the sound in your with all that said and with what you just read...I let out a cheer while raising my beer...and to Blackstar my "Thanks" to the money you saved me still there in my bank...Peace.

  • Unreliable-not so

    As reviewed by charles zoeller on 3/13/2013

    I previously wrote a review on the HT-5 head. It was labelled unreliable. So now I have had the amp back for several months now, no problems at all I am glad to report. Blackstar took care of repairs, because it is under warranty. There were 3 resistors that were out. Blackstar located the place for the repairs. When I got the amp back ,it was easy to dial back into the sound I wanted and made some tracks. As I mentioned before, this is a versitle, dynamic amp head, and has a great look.

  • Great amp - and LOUD too!

    As reviewed by Jeffrey S. Jones on 5/16/2013

    Turned it on, and within 5 minutes had a killer tone dialed in at low volume. Running it through a 4x12 HIWATT cabinet, and it really sounds good. Have to dial it in some still, but was VERY impressed with the sound quality and build quality of the amp. I honestly don't think there's a better value out there for a low-wattage tube amp that has an effects loop, 2 channels, and great tone so quickly right out of the box. If you're on the fence, go ahead and buy it - it's well worth the money.
