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.
