Personalised multi-point setup included

Before dispatch, your instrument will be treated to a full setup. That's not a quick tweak, but a full multi-point setup by an experienced guitar technician who will check and adjust every single thing on your guitar, bass, ukulele or banjo to ensure it is performing at its absolute best.

This is not a quick process but we believe every instrument should go through our process to acheive an exacting standard of playability.


We start with the frets on your instrument. All guitar necks move and change over time so we will make sure that your frets are nice and flat as we go up the neck. We don't want any high or low spots as this will mean your guitar will need a higher than optimum action and potentially suffer with fret buzz.

We check and properly profile the playing surface of the frets and then make sure the fret ends are finished off properly. The fret is then polished to ensure smooth string bending.

Truss Rod

Then it's on to the truss rod. This metal rod differs from guitar to guitar (some guitars such as classical guitars don't usually have a truss rod!) and basically controls the "relief" or curve of the neck. Not enough relief and your strings won't have enough clearance over the other frets when playing. Too much relief and you'll have a high action which gets worse as you go up the neck.

The heavier the strings then the more the truss rod needs to work. Proper adjustment in the workshop means that the action will be just right for the strings fitted to your guitar.

Top Nut

The top nut is super important and is one of the two open contact points of your guitar. The technician will check and cut each slot to make sure the strings both run freely but are not sitting in a slot that's too big.

The top nut also plays a big part in the action of your guitar so we'll hit that sweet spot between too low and too high.


Another really important part of your guitar!

On an acoustic, the saddle is cut to the correct height making sure the bottom is 100% flat and straight. This means the string can transfer its vibration properly into the body of your guitar.

For electric guitars, the saddles are adjusted to ensure your intonation is perfect. We will also match the saddles to the radius of your fretboard.

Bridge / Tremolo

The bridge affects the break angle and string height of your guitar and is also responsible for holding your saddles.

For a guitar with a Floyd Rose tremolo system or similar, the spring tension has to be just right to allow the tremolo to return to its "zero point" and keep everything in tune.

For guitars with standard tremolos, we can set it to float and be used both up or down like a true tremolo or we can lock the trem block back so the tremolo will only go downwards.... the choice is yours!


Intonation is the measure of how in-tune the guitar string is across the length of the fretboard and a guitar with badly set intonation will get more and more out of tune as the string is shortened when you play.

Tiny adjustments are made to each string where applicable to adjust its length and ensure that the intonation is set just right.

Overall Action

Once all the above has been completed, the guitar is checked for playability and fine adjustments are made. This step brings everything together and means your guitar will be set up optimally.

Machine Heads

Every machine head is operated and checked for function. We need to ensure that the machine heads operate smoothly.


All the functions of your guitar are checked to ensure everything is working as intended.

For acoustic guitars we will check the functions of the EQ system and controls as weel as check the internal cabling and jack socket.

For electric guitars, all the pickups are checked for function and tonal response. All controls and switches are operated to ensure they are functioning properly. The jack socket is checked.

Other Parts

All other parts such as strap pins, bushings, tuning buttons etc are fully checked.


All our instruments get the same premium treatment wether you purchase online or instore.

If you have purchased online, your guitar will be carefully packed ready for dispatch. You will receive a tracking link via email.

Happy playing :)

The Blackstar HT Club 40 MkIII Guitar Combo raises the benchmark again! This 2-channel, 40 watt, 1x12" guitar amp features an upgraded premium aesthetic, stunning clean and drive tones, Blackstar's CabRig DSP speaker simulation, a handy power reduction circuit for bedroom friendly volume and lots more! 

With its fresh, modern design, the HT Club MkIII delivers an air of boutique sophistication. The new panel has a clean, crisp aesthetic and cornerless covering, combined with classic chickenhead knobs and a new paper fret to complete the look.

The HT Club 40 MkIII offers the player 2 channels and 4 footswitchable voices. The new ground-breaking clean channel delivers the ultimate in clean tone, with handy Bass and Treble controls, alongside a Voice switch for added tonal versatility. 

The Overdrive channel, with its two overdrive voices delivers plenty of drive tones to experiment with; one offering that 'classic crunch' and the other a 'super saturated lead'. Take control of these channels with a dedicated EQ that features bass, middle and treble along with Blackstar's signature ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) knob that allows you to toggle between American and British tonal character on the equipped channel.

With its built-in Digital Reverb you have access to either a Dark or Light tone via the rear switch. Reverb time is also independently adjustable via Architect software for added user control.

The amp is driven by a single 12" Celestion speaker and is powered by two ECC83 and two EL34 valves giving easy access to plenty of tube goodness!

A valued feature of the HT Club 40 MkIII is Blackstar's intelligent power reduction button. Using this feature means you can attenuate this amps power output from the full 40 watts down to just a 10% power mode. This is an extremely handy feature for those players who want to retain the sound of the amps natural breakup and tonal sensitivity, but want it at a suitable volume for home practice or studio work. 

The onboard CabRig technology is Blackstar's world-class DSP speaker simulation comes as standard, which allows guitarists to choose between 100s of different cabinet, mic, mic placement and room settings. These settings can be saved and stored into 3 presets which can be recalled directly from the amplifier. CabRig outputs are 1/4" unbalanced, XLR balanced and USB C (great for USB recording) - giving you plenty of connectivity options.

With its upgraded looks and sound, modern appointments, excellent range of connectivity, and rugged reliability, the Blackstar HT Club 40 MkIII is a superb amp, and a great choice for any guitarist!
