Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (9 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "WOW 5 watts of pure rock!!!!!"
Overall: MAn I have to say i was a bit skeptical going from an EVH 5150 down to this amp but i am absolutly blown away. The tone is amazing. The best thing about this amp is the qualities of the guitar really show through in the tone. Too often with these smaller amps every guitar sounds the same but not here. The dynamics are out of this world. I can dial in anything from screaming blues, bright clean jazz, to the rauchiest metal around. The isf feature is stunning as well. I wouldnt advise turning the dial all the way in either direction but from 9 oclock to 3 oclock covers alot and does it well.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Perfect gigging amp!"
Sound: Sound is great. Overdrive channel has plenty of gain to use. Notes articulate well. All the sustain needed with easy to obtain overtones. Clean channel has a very nice breakup with humbucking pickups. Very warm sound. Add a transparent boost on the clean side and can get some nice breakup old rock tones. Reverb has a nice sound. Feature: All the features you need for a two channel amp. I would like to see a boost feature for the overdrive at some point, but if you go old school and volume rolls, you are just fine. Effects loop boost is a nice feature. Emulated speaker output is nice. I currently just mic using a SM-57. Ease of Use: Amp is very easy to use. Has all the basics with no clutter or options that you would not use. Straight forward setup. Quality: Amp is well made. No cheap potentiometers. Chassis is solid. Very nice. Value: Very good price, really happy with my purchase. Manufacturer Support: Have not needed this to date. The Wow Factor: This little amp blows me away. I can really get the sound I was looking for on both channels without any difficulty. I think Blackstar nailed it with this amp. I am a gigging guitarist and this is my new go to amp, it does everything I want. Overall: I purchased the HT-5RH from zZounds and I must say what great services I was provided. I play every weekend and wanted to get a lower wattage tube amp, and something easier to carry. The HT-5RH is perfect for me. I piggy backed this with a closed 112 cab with a Eminence speaker and its perfect. I had my doubts about gigging with 5w, but trusted the opinions I read and heard online. This amp keeps up just fine. I have only had to run the clean channel at about half volume with overdrive at a matched level. No problem with power using a pa system and using the amp for on stage monitoring. I had people in my ear about getting the 20w version.. it is not needed with a pa system, trust me. I wanted a amp I could crank up and get the tubes hot without being blowed off stage.. this amp works perfect.

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.

Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
