Popular valve amps improved for 2011

Musikmesse 2011 Press Release: When the original HT-5 was launched in 2008 it quickly became on of the most successful studio and practice amps ever designed.

Packing all the great tone and innovative features of the award-winning HT valve pedals in a two-channel, footswitchable valve amp format with a unique push-pull power amp design it was an instant classic.

Due to popular demand 2011 sees this groundbreaking amp relaunched and improved with a whole host of new features:

  • Digital stereo reverb as found on the HT Venue Series and HT-1 adding a rich depth to any playing style (only on 'R' models)
  • Dedicated Tone control on the Clean Channel providing even greater tonal flexibility over the HT-5's shimmering cleans
  • 12" Blackbird 50 Watt speaker, custom designed by Blackstar
  • State-of-the-art enhanced speaker emulated output for perfectly capturing valve tone to tape or disk
  • Speaker emulated output can now be used at the same time as the internal speaker/extension cab, providing headphone-free monitoring or the choice to blend a mic'd speaker and emulated signal together for unrivalled usability when recording at home or in the studio
  • Stero MP3/Line input perfect for practice
  • Please note that the HT-112 will be fitted with the new Blackbird 50 speaker from April production to match the new HT-5R
