Blackstar HT-5RS Mini-Stack Guitar Amplifier Stack

No longer available at zZounds
Here's a full stack that won't break your back! With the HT-5RH head and two 1x12" cabs, the HT-5RS Mini-Stack gives you big tube tone in a compact package.

The innovative Blackstar HT-5RS Mini-Stack offers unbelievable tube sound in a compact format. The dual-triode 12BH7, wired in a push-pull circuit, produces the crunch and break-up of a traditional 100 Watt amp, delivering a sound rich in tube harmonics and compression at the lowest levels. The Infinite Shape Feature (ISF) and the three-band EQ provide tone-shaping control, along with the digital reverb. The emulated speaker/headphone output offers both 1 x 12" and 4 x 12" settings - great for recording! A jam-along stereo MP3/line input is also provided. Complete with the HT-5RH head plus two 1 x 12" Blackbird 50 cabinets.

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This I believe has been one of the best purchases I have made. The head and cabs were delivered very quickly and were in perfect condition. I haven't had the stack for that long, but it seems that the tubes are breaking in nicely. I get great cleans and fantastic gain. Responds well to volume and control knobs on my Epi Les Paul Standard Pro.
