Overview

The HT-5RS mini stack combines the HT-5RH head with two 1x12 Blackstar voiced speaker cabinets. The innovative Blackstar HT-5H guitar amp head offers unbelievable tube sound in a compact format. Using the dual-triode 12BH7 wired in a push-pull circuit, you get the crunch and break-up characteristics of a traditional 100-watt amp at a much lower volume. This design creates a sound rich in tube harmonics and compression even at the lowest levels.

The HT-5H's three-band EQ is augmented by the Infinite Shape Feature (ISF), which provides infinite new tone-shaping control. The emulated speaker output/headphone output offers both 1x12" and 4x12" settings - great for recording or practice.

Are you a player or a guitarist?

Comments about Blackstar HT Series HT-5RS Guitar Mini Stack:

Some people will buy a $2500 LP Custom with a beautiful burst and a $1500 Marshall/Mesa and others will buy the $700 Gibson LPJ and the Blackstar HT-5 and mic it. The Custom/Marshall guy will look cooler but the LPJ/Blackstar guy will sound better. This is the perfect amp. It's the one you practice with AND gig with. I've been playing over 20 years, owned dozens of amps, and not one of them had the incredible tones, versatility, or portability of this little gem. If you can't find 'your tone' here, then it's probably not your amp OR your guitar.

This is the one!

Comments about Blackstar HT Series HT-5RS Guitar Mini Stack:

I've had some classic amps throughout my playing history, Gibson Tube 40, Kustom 100, Fender Bassman, Marshall JCM 800 #2203, Marshall 30th Anniversary. Although there is nothing like the sound of a vintage Marshall stack, unless you have the privilege to play an open stadium, you just cannot crank them high enough to get that pure power tube saturation - the holy grail - that everyone craves. I waited two agonizing months for this new HT-5RS and believe me, it was worth every second. For a 5-watt amp, this bad boy is loud...the cleans are beautiful and bluesy, but kick on the overdrive and you WILL experience what a dimed tube stack is supposed to sound like! When they say find the sound in your head, believe it. This is the one!

Comments about Blackstar HT Series HT-5RS Guitar Mini Stack:

For a 5 watt amp, this is pretty darn loud. I bought this as a practice amp; when I finally brought it home, I just cranked it all the way, and the first strum on my guitar was scary... I ended up having to stick a volume pedal in the effects loop (which I found to be effective in lowering the volume, but preserving most of the tone). Speaking of tone, this amp packs great variety from clean to bluesy crunch to heavy distortion. What I love the most about this amp is that every knob on the amp responds to every touch of your finger. Once you get used to the amp, it's very easy to know how to get the sound in your head (as it says on the brochure) by turning how much of which knob. There are definitely "greater" amps out there. But nothing will get you all the variety, functionality, and the cool look of a stack in your bedroom at this price.
