    Comments about Blackstar HT-5R 5W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo with Reverb:

    I'm a Strat guy of 30 years with the SRV desired tone. Watch the youtube video's of this amp online it sounds like a machine gun amp.. Metal Only... not true, very good tone! I've had every amp under the sun in 40 years, still have a 70's full stack.. ok, we get older and wiser and this is perfect for jam nights, got a good PA, no worries.. wish it was 10watts as you might reach for more and its not there! But its about the tone for me and this amp has it. Sounds great straight in (and i like that for portability) but it takes my pedalboard like it was flirting and you can get more horsepower in volume!! For the price tag it don't get any better.. DR. Z watch out! ;)

      Sweet distortion down low or Cruch up high. Great sustain and harmonic overtones. As simple to use as the Blackstar Distortion pedal, very intuitive and I disagree with another review, the ISO knob, while subtle, does work as advertised!! Get one!

      being use to 100 watt and 50 watt tube amps it took me a week to get used to this amp. I have always had way too much power and had to turn down.I love power, but for playing in my bedroom or in a apartment this amp works really good. i would highly recommend this amp where high volume is not welcomed. at first it sounded very thin and it still does, i cant see playing out side with this, 5 watts isn't much, but is plenty for recording in doors.as for the line out it is really good.great practice amp.

      Comments about Blackstar HT-5R 5W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo with Reverb:

      This amp doesn't really shine until driving some speaker cabinets. It will work good for practicing with multiple bands to eliminate "gear hauling fatigue". Probably changing the speaker out would help. I have to use a wide range of tones and this amp gets it close enough for rehearsals. To be honest though, I think it was made for the bedroom death metal youtube stars because the distortion just gets stupid. haha

            Comments about Blackstar HT-5R 5W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo with Reverb:

            I have the twin speaker version. The amp sounds good; I can get good tone at low volumes. My only knock on the amp is the ISF feature. I didn't check this when I tried out the amp, once I got it home I realized it actually does nothing. I suspect it is just a pot not connected to anything, just a marketing gimmick. With that said I am happy with the amp, they should just get rid of the ISF pot and remove that from their marketing.

              Comments about Blackstar HT-5R 5W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo with Reverb:

              I bought this amp a few months ago and so far very satisfied. I wanted a good tube amp that I can play in my home without having to crank it up to get a good sound. This amp sounds great at low volume. I love the built in overdrive channel, puts out some nice distortion. I can get most hard rock and metal sounds right out of the box with out any added effects pedals. Sometimes, I wish I would have bought the head unit instead of the combo, but I can do anything with combo that the head can do. I can plug my combo into 4x12 extension cabinet and get the same sounds as with the head. The combo seems a lot small then I was expecting. Its very compact and does not take away from the sound quality.
