Personalised multi point setup included

Before dispatch, your instrument will be treated to a full setup. Thats not a quick tweek 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 neck 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 theis 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.

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 must 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.

Top Nut

The top nut is super important and is one of the two open contact points of your guitar. The tech 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 form the correct radius to match that of your fretboard.

Description Reviews Questions

The Blackstar HT-5RH MkII is the latest incarnation of Blackstar's hugely popular 5-watt all-valve head. Get killer valve tone and a selection innovative features that make for a superb home, practice and studio amp head. 

The HT-5RH MkII now how a classy, boutique looking design complete stage friendly chickenhead knobs - a very welcome makeover! The amp itself puts out a punchy 5 watts of valve power (2 x EL84 power valves, 1 x ECC83 preamp valve), with the addition of a new power switch that'll take you down to 10% power - 0.5watts.

When it comes to sound, the HT-5RH MkII is now even more versatile than previous iterations. The Clean channel features two footswitchable voices, Voice 1 delivers that "American" classic bright tone with solid bass response, whilst Voice 2 target the "British" sound with a responsive chime, looser low end and ability to drive when pushed hard. The single tone control allows you to tweak the final sound.

The Overdrive section also features two foot switchable voices. Voice 1 is all about the classic "British" Blackstar overdrive, taking you from a rich natural drive to a super crunch, all whilst being able to clean up when you back off the volume. Voice 2 is all about the "High Gain" inspired by the critically acclaimed HT Venue MkII high gain sounds - aggressive high end with a tight, compact yet resonant low end. A 3-Band EQ allows you to tweak your overdrive tone, whilst the Blackstar ISF filter gives added tonal range.

Other features include a newly voiced studio quality reverb, effects loops, D.I output, emulated output and USB connectivity.
