Here at The Guitar Store Southampton we have the MkII version of the mighty Blackstar HT5R Combo.

The HT5R has always been one of our favorite low wattage combos, a great clean channel, a truly amazing dirty channel that will give you all of the famous classic rock tones all day long.  Add reverb, a great fx loop, emulated line out and a footswitch to change channels and you have a winning combination.  Blackstar have now added some improvements that makes the MkII version even better  -  USB connectivity, balanced XLR outputs and a power reduction switch (5w down o 0.5w), the HT-5R has all of the appointments to meet the demands of modern guitarists.

Killer tones and innovative features make the HT-5R MkII the ultimate studio and practice valve amp. Thanks to the unique 5W push-pull design utilising the 12BH7 valve, it delivers huge tone at any volume.

The best clean tones: Now with two footswitchable Voices, one with an “American” character and the other with a Class A “British” sound – both are 100% Blackstar:

  • -  Voice 1 “American” – A clean, bright and tight tone with a solid bass response for a refined American tone.
  • -  Voice 2 “British” – A highly responsive “chime” with looser bottom for the British tone that can be pushed into a mid-range overdrive when driven hard.
  • - The best overdrives: The two footswitchable Overdrive Voices are characterised by a tone which is high in gain, but avoids any of the detached top-end “fizz”  often found in other designs.
  •  - Voice 1 “Classic” – This is the Classic “British” Blackstar overdrive. Rich and natural it goes all the way to Super Crunch gain but cleans up beautifully.
  • - Voice 2 “High Gain” – Inspired by the critically acclaimed HT Venue MkII high gain sounds, this overdrive has additional aggression in the high end with a tight resonant low-end.
  • - The best features: Joining Blackstar’s patented ISF tone control are USB and balanced XLR outputs for more recording flexibility, plus a power reduction switch taking you down to 10% power and a newly voiced studio quality reverb.
  •  - The best looks: Even more refined and boutique the newly design cabinet has a 3 degree angle, top-loader panel and stage-friendly chickenhead knobs.
