The Blackstar HT1MC 1W 1x8” combo is a stripped-down, tube-driven metal monster that you can actually play 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.
Its two-channel design (Clean and Overdrive) features easy-to-adjust controls, presenting just four knobs: Volume, Gain, Reverb and EQ via Blackstar’s patented Infinite Shape Feature that gives infinite adjustment over your tone characteristics. Couple that with a rugged construction, true tube power through one ECC83 and one ECC82, stereo reverb, stereo aux. line in and external speaker output — and this is a potent tool created to melt faces, but without the public-nuisance charges.

I was first impressed with Blackstar when I purchased one of their pedals for my AC30 amp. Looking for a metal amp for home playing, I checked out the Blackstar website and listened to some on-line videos and decided to buy the HT Metal 1 amp without actually trying one out. This amp is awesome! I attained a heavy crunch and surprisingly brilliant cleans. Then, I pushed the overdrive button and was blown away by the heavy metal tone I could achieve. The infinite shape feature definitely gives a USA or UK heavy metal sound. Playing and closing your eyes makes you believe a full metal stack is going off! For what it's worth, the Marshall 1 watt amp cannot even get close to the Blackstar in tone and versitility. The quality is superb.
Great metal sound and surprisingly good cleans. High quality construction. Excellent low end and volume for a small amp, perfect for home or recording. I also own a Vox AC30C2, and Carvin Vintage 16, and am extremely impressed and satisfied with Blackstar.
