OVERVIEW

A small-yet-mighty tube tone machine!

The HT-5RS mini stack combines the HT-5RH head with two 1x12 Blackstar voiced speaker cabinets. The innovative Blackstar HT-5H guitar amp head offers unbelievable tube sound in a compact format. Using the dual-triode 12BH7 wired in a push-pull circuit, you get the crunch and break-up characteristics of a traditional 100-watt amp at a much lower volume. This design creates a sound rich in tube harmonics and compression even at the lowest levels.

The HT-5H's three-band EQ is augmented by the Infinite Shape Feature (ISF), which provides infinite new tone-shaping control. The emulated speaker output/headphone output offers both 1x12" and 4x12" settings - great for recording or practice.

FEATURES
  • Power: 5Watt (tube)
  • Tubes: one 12AX7 (preamp) one 12BH7 (power amp)
  • Unique push pull power amp design
  • Award-winning HT Pedal preamp
  • Two footswitchable channels
  • Speakers: 2x12" Blackbird 50 speakers
  • Enhanced tone controls
  • Patent-Applied-For Infinite Shape Feature (ISF)
  • Digital Stereo Reverb
  • Fully equipped for studio or practice
  • Speaker emulated output with 1x12 or 4x12 voicing
  • Effects loop with effects level switch
  • Footswitch included

Quit lugging those massive 4x12 cabs around and experience the power of the HT-5RS mini stack! Order now.

    Comments about Blackstar HT Series HT-5RS Guitar Mini Stack:

    This is a Great rig! Chimey,pristine cleans and can roar like a wide-open JCM 800, but at 80db. It's amazing that such a full, round tone can come from such a small package. Easy volume roll-on breakup for biting blues,"chugs" like a freight train and all the nuance is there. This will teach you to be a better player.I'll gig with this, like lugging a small suitcase and you get mic'ed or d.i.anyway for volume,it is loud enough for small clubs or group practice on it's own. I'm hard to impress,and have played a LOT of gear, but this is a winner.

      I have owned this amp for about a year. I have played through many different amps, and none have sounded this great and have been in the price range. This amp is a steal.

        Comments about Blackstar HT Series HT-5RS Guitar Mini Stack:

        This amp is amazingly capable of generating a wide range of tones at all volumes. Typically with tube amps lower volumes involve a reduction in tone. This amp does not have that problem. The amp features high-quality emulated outs for PA systems/headphones and recording purposes.

        The styling is very impressive and build quality is very good.

          Comments about Blackstar HT Series HT-5RS Guitar Mini Stack:

          First, I'll preface that I bought the original HT5, before Blackstar added reverb to the head. I've had the amp for over 6 years and I'm quite experienced with it. I went to a local store to purchase a new Les Paul and this little Blackstar was set up in the sound room. I plugged into it, jammed for 30 minutes, and the amp had to go home with me as well. It was an impulse buy but one of my best purchases.

          This little stack is simply amazing. I was surprised at the tones (and volume) I could get out of 5 watts. Blackstar nailed it with this amp. When I bought mine, Blackstar was a little known company that made great effects pedals. Now they are a household name among musicians and a world class company.
