Blackstar HT-5 Series HT-5H and HT-110 Guitar Mini Half Stack
This mini Blackstar half stack from the HT series pairs the Blackstar HT-5H guitar amp head with the HT-110 speaker cab and delivers great tone during practice or studio work at any volume level.
The Blackstar HT-5H Guitar Amp Head
The HT-5H tube guitar amp from Blackstar is ideal for studio work or practice, packing all the great tone and innovative features of the award-winning HT tube pedals into a 2-channel, footswitchable tube amp format. The patent-applied-for ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) circuit gives you infinite adjustment over the characteristics of the tone control network and takes your tone from the USA to the UK and anywhere in between. So now you can effectively design your own tone and finally find "that sound in your head."
In making the Blackstar HT-5H ideally suited to home and studio use, the aim was to develop a tube amp that sounded full in tone even at the lowest volume level. With this in mind Blackstar designed a brand-new tube power amplifier topology. The HT-5H power amplifier is a low-powered, push-pull design that produces the crunch and breakup characteristics of a traditional 100W output but at a much lower volume—via its 12BH7 dual-triode in push-pull configuration producing 5 watts output— and delivers rich harmonics and compression.
