OVERVIEW

Tube-driven metal tone built for the studio or practice.

The Blackstar HT1MC 1W 1x8” combo is a stripped-down, tube-driven metal monster that you can actually play without drawing the wrath of your neighbors. It can handle tones from classic British heavy metal to modern U.S. scooped high gain, and all sonic places in between.

Its two-channel design (Clean and Overdrive) features easy-to-adjust controls, presenting just four knobs: Volume, Gain, Reverb and EQ via Blackstar’s patented Infinite Shape Feature that gives infinite adjustment over your tone characteristics. Couple that with a rugged construction, true tube power through one ECC83 and one ECC82, stereo reverb, stereo aux. line in and external speaker output — and this is a potent tool created to melt faces, but without the public-nuisance charges.

FEATURES
  • 1W tube power
  • Two channels: Clean and Overdrive
  • 1x8” speaker
  • Reverb
  • Patented Infinite Shape Feature
  • Stereo MP3/line input
  • Speaker emulated / headphone output
  • External speaker output, 4-16Ω
  • Metal speaker grille

      Comments about Blackstar HT Metal Series HT1MC 1W 1x8 Tube Guitar Combo w/Reverb:

      This is my first tube amp and so far I'm loving it. Really suprised me how powerful an amp this size could be. I am really impressed with the quality from Blackstar. Lots of great features packed into a small package. There is also the option of pluging the amp into a cabinet and mp3 port. it's perfect for anyone who wants a nice pure metal tone. The sound is very clear even with heavy distortion. What's really awesome is that you could definitely record with this amp mic-ed up or pluged into your computer. Overall real bang for your buck. At this price I'd snag one up as soon as possible. Trust me I'm on a budget and this is quite a deal at 189.

        This is a great amp! Perfect for sounding great at a low volume in the bedroom. I love the cleans and the metal gain. This is the tone I've been searching for. Love it so much I'm now planning on buying a ht 40 for gigs and band practice.

        Comments about Blackstar HT Metal Series HT1MC 1W 1x8 Tube Guitar Combo w/Reverb:

        Excellent little amp for bedroom level playing and for recording.

        For recording I run it derect through a Focusrite 2i2 into an iMac with GarageBand. It sounds amazing!

        The 8" speaker in the combo doesn't handle the bassiness at moderate to higher volume settings. It could really use a 3 band EQ to help loose a little more bass. I did run it through my 2x12 cabinet and it sounded great! I'm guessing a 4x12 would be great too. Although I haven't tried that.

        In case anyone was wondering. This amp is NOT loud enough to gig, unless you run derect. Which is understandable. It's not what this little guy was designed for.

        I definitely don't regret this purchase. I'd buy it again if needed. I highly recommend it.

        Comments about Blackstar HT Metal Series HT1MC 1W 1x8 Tube Guitar Combo w/Reverb:

        This amp sounds incredibly good with surprisingly crisp cleans and excellent gain levels. I put a nice Mooer Ana Analog Delay in front of it and you can pretty much dial into whatever tone you desire with the ISF control. This is by far the best money I have ever spent on home use equipment. I will add Blackstar's HT112 to enhance the sound in the future.

        This is a definite much have!

        Comments about Blackstar HT Metal Series HT1MC 1W 1x8 Tube Guitar Combo w/Reverb:

        Received as promised. Notice not many reviews on this amp. This is a under the radar amp. The price doesn't reflect the quality. I jumped on this offer. Even though it's high gain amp, it performs beautifully in clean mode. Warm and crisp. Clean, blues, rock, its there for ya. Wow, it can get load if needed. Nice sound from headphone output. Wish it had a mid eq for distortion channel, because it gets wickedly grungey fast. Da, its a high gain amp. Clean channel doesn't need it. Belt out some licks and scales on this lil monster. Will update after connecting to 4x12 cab.

        I am not a Blackstar Fan, But this is the Best Buy in small tube amps, I have had Bad Cat ,Vox ,Randall & Star & Blackstar (the regular HT1 and this amp smokes them all except for the Star that is 10X the price if you can find one. Sounds like a good DSL for less.And great through a 112 Cab.
        At this close out price buy it while you can!
