Blackstar HT Club 40 MkII Guitar Combo
After over 3 years of intense R & D, Blackstar bring you the Blackstar HT Club 40 MkII Guitar Combo! Designed to offer more refined cleans, more responsive drives, added flexibility, better and pro recording options all housed in a smaller compact chassis. This edition, the HTClub 40 is the ideal gigging valve amp for club sized venues.
This Venue Series Amplifier offers the player 2 channels and 4 footswitchable voices, first you have a clean channel that is reminiscent of a crisp, refined American style amplifier and can be manipulated with a voicing button and its own 2 band EQ. Also built in are two overdrive channels 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.
This Venue Series amp is driven by a single 12" Celestion speaker and is powered by two ECC83 and two EL34 valves which give it that punchy, dynamic all out British tube tone. The overall design means that this amplifier will thrive in almost any live band scenario and is born to cut through any mix without breaking a sweat!
Also a valued feature of this 'Venue Series' amp design 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.
Blackstar have also reworked and retained a few features from the much loved original. Included in this updated edition is a handy master volume that works in harmony with the individual channel volume controls for optimum tonal performance in all scenarios, Blackstar's own crisp digital reverb that delivers surfy atmospheric echo to bring out every note, and a second switch to select standby mode which will make any musicians life that little bit easier.
