Overview

The innovative HT-1RH guitar amp head offers unbelievable tube sound in a compact format. The patent-applied-for ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) circuit gives you infinite adjustment over the characteristics of the tone control network and takes you from the USA to the UK, and everywhere in between. Add a fully specified speaker-emulated output, built-in reverb, MP3/line input, plus an 8-ohm speaker out and you have everything you need for recording or practicing.

And what's a great head without a speaker cabinet to match? That role is filled beautifully with the portable powerhouse HT-112 1x12 cab, loaded with a single 12-in. custom-designed Blackbird 50 speaker. The closed-back design allows for better low-end projection. And the small-scale design makes it easy to transport and use in any environment.

I was looking for a home practice/recording amp and was stuck between the Vox AC4, the Blackstar HT5R and the HT1R. I didn't need a lot of volume and opted for this HT1 stack with the 1x12 cab. I had played through the AC4 before and actually made this purchase blindly after doing careful research. Honestly, I was skeptical and nervous that 1W was going to be quiet and more of a novelty amp. Boy was I wrong. This amp absolutely screams and the 1x12 cab makes the amp sound huge! I can't speak for the combo...but the volume, depth, and gorgeous nastiness that this little stack puts out is unreal. If you're debating making this purchase...just buy it, you won't regret it.

The amp I got was brand new and not a return. Despite this, the channel changing button crackles like it's been used hard for tem 10 years. The amp in general was noisy, I broke the warranty and opened it up and changed the cheap tubes that come in it. Much better! The excessive noise is gone, the preamp tube was bad. Really wish I would have just returned it for something better. This is my first experience with black star so I don't know if they make cheap stuff or if they just have bad quality control. This will be the last time I buy their product. So many better options in this price range. To think I could have spent $100 more and got a blues Junior it's just flat-out to depressing.

    Sounds awesome...great tube sound without blowing your windows out or pissing the old lady off. Not sure which one is better. I might go for a few Windows. But you would be surprised at how loud it gets with the gain all the way up. Perfect for home use..Great tone. Glad I purchased it.

              Awesome sound great for home use. Nice tube break up with out blowing the windows out. But can still be loud enough to annoy the old lady. ( At times that can be a + in my book ).

                For me great home practice mini stack. I play often in the evening after work and need to keep my volume level down. I can still get the sound I'm looking for at these levels with this head and cabinet. Great tube sound. Clears are very good. Reverb and tone work very well. Gain can be crunchy or dirty when you want it. I'm an intermediate player and this head and cabinet give me everything I need right now. I recommend to everyone.

                Saw this amp and cabinet in the standard black color before and honestly I laughed at it and wouldn't even consider it. Then I saw it in the limited edition Bronco Tan and loved the look so I tried it. Don't let the 1 watt fool you. This thing sounds amazing. It is now my go to home practice amp and that is saying a lot. This amp sounds great at home/bedroom levels. The clean and dirt channels are perfect. Plenty of low end and endless tone n matter what your musical style is. I have replaced my Mesa Mark , Vox AC30, and Blackstar HT Club 40 and ID:60 TVP with this amp for home playing and practice. I can not say enough good things about this amp. Try it. You will be AMAZED.

                I use this amp for Home practice and have actually put a sure SM 57 in front of it and used it at a church worship service, with a Gibson les paul classic gold top. Relatively loud for only 1watt, the reverb is excellent, and the Ifs controll actually works to shape the tone between a fender and a Vox amp. Of which I own both. I'm very impressed with the blackstar all tube amp line.

                  I wanted a small 2-channel practice amp that still provided me with a good sound. It's probably safe to say that many of us have tried various small practice amps only to be let down with the thin and fizzy sound quality. This thing is totally opposite!!! Lots of great tone and the OD channel is amazing! Plus, it's actually pretty darn loud when it wants to be.
