Blackstar HT5RHMKII Overview

Designed for electric guitar players, the Blackstar 5W Tube Guitar Amplifier Head is a 5W tube amplifier head for guitars with two channels; one for Clean and one for Overdrive. An included footswitch allows you to easily switch between the channels. The overdrive channel offers a three-knob tone stack and Blackstar's proprietary ISF tonal filter, while the clean section gives you a simple tone control. Reverb is also on hand for adding space to the signal. The amp's size and features make it ideal for recording, practice, jamming, performance, and more.

Using a 12BH7 tube for rich harmonics and compression, the amplifier's power section produces the crunch and break-up characteristics of a traditional 100W output stage, but at a much lower volume. You secure an even lower level by pressing the output-power reduction switch, which gives you 0.5W operation. An ECC83 tube is used to drive the preamp section.

This Amp Head includes a 1/4" line output and an XLR DI out. Both of these respond to a voicing switch that allows you to change the tonal characteristics of the emulated signal. Choose between a 4x12" closed-back or a 1x12" open-back cabinet sound. 

You'll also note an effects loop with switchable level. This enables you to use the amp head with guitar-level effects, such as stompboxes, or rackmount gear. Onboard are 1/4" 16- and 8-Ohm speaker outputs, as are a stereo MP3/line input and a USB port. A two-button footswitch is included.

Uses one ECC83 tube and one 12BH7 tube
Two footswitchable channels to allow you to switch between the Clean channel and the Overdrive channel
Two voice settings on each channel for further tonal variation
