    Innovative combo amp
    The HT-5R is the ultimate studio and practice amp, packing all the great tone and innovative features of the award-winning HT valve pedals into a two channel, footswitchable valve amp format.
    ISF Control: Everything from USA to UK
    The patented ISF control works with the Bass, Middle and Treble controls to give you access to infinite new sound possibilities from the USA to the UK and everywhere in-between. This fully interactive control allows you to infinitely adjust the response of the tone control network between any of the traditional voicings. In this way you can design your own sound and truly find the sound in your head.
    Two Footswitchable Channels
    The HT-5R has two channels available for selection, a Clean channel and an Overdrive channel. Using the Volume control while on the Clean channel you are able to deliver everything from a clean sound through to a crunch tone. Alternatively you can select the Overdrive channel and again using the Gain control, change from a clean sound on the edge of breakup right through to a distorted lead tone.
    Unique push-pull power amp design
    The HT-5R power amplifier is a low powered push-pull design which produces the crunch and break-up characteristics of a traditional 100W output stage, but at a much lower volume. This is achieved by the use of a 12BH7 dual triode valve in push-pull configuration producing 5 Watts output, which is rich in valve harmonics and compression, sounding full and toneful even at the lowest volume level.
    12 inch Blackbird 50 Speaker
    The HT-5R features a Blackstar custom voiced 12 inch Blackbird 50 speaker.
    Stereo MP3/Line Input
    A stereo MP3 / Line Input has been added to the HT-5R allowing the user to play a backing track or similar, through the amp while practising / recording.
    External Speaker Output
    The external speaker output on the HT-5R allows you to connect further extension cabinets. The output marked '1x16 Ohm' is for the connection of a single 16 Ohm extension speaker cabinet (or the internal loudspeaker of the HT-5 combo). The outputs marked '1x8 Ohm or 2x16 Ohm' are for the connection of either a single 8 Ohm extension cabinet or two 16 Ohm cabinets. Also, the internal loudspeaker of the HT-5 combo can be plugged in here if it is used with a 16 Ohm extension cabinet
    Reverb Control
    The HT-5R's Reverb control sets the overall level of the reverb effect. With the control fully counter clockwise there will be no reverb. Turning the control clockwise will increase the amount of reverb.

I use this as a stage amp. The sound is controlled through the PA and I didn't need a high output amp. It's perfect. Great sound options, robust yet portable and small enough to use st home for practice.
