Tube amp head, 5W, 2 channels, 2 voicing, attenuator, reverb
Innovative features and killer sound make the HT-5RH MkII the ultimate amp for home and studio. Its unique push-pull design around a 12BH7 delivers 5 watts of power, for huge sound at any volume.
The most beautiful sounds cleans: two sounds are selectable, one with an American character and the other with the sound "British" class A - both are 100% Blackstar:
Voice 1 "American" - a crystalline clean and tight grain with a solid bass seat.
Voice 2 "British" - bass and a typically "British" dynamic that can go to overdrive when pushed hard.
The most beautiful saturations: the two selectable overdrives are characterized by a large reserve of gain, while avoiding the sharp highs often encountered in other designs.
Voice 1 "Classic" - This is the classic British Blackstar overdrive. Rich and natural, it can go to the Super Crunch, but also almost until clean.
Voice 2 "High Gain" - Inspired by the high gain sounds of the Venue MkII HT, this distortion adds aggression in the treble with tight bass that resonates.
More features: for more flexibility when recording, Blackstar have added a USB jack and an XLR output. The power reducer will allow you to play at 10% of the volume, and a new studio quality reverb has been added.
