The HT-Club 40 is the ideal tube amp for the working musician for club sized venue. Sam Ash Direct has the guaranteed lowest price and fast free, shipping.

Equipped with 2 channels and 4 modes, the Blackstar HT Club 40 is the ideal gigging valve amp for club sized venues. The 40-Watt EL34 driven power amplifier has amazing punch and dynamics that will easily cut through in a full band situation. Switching to the ISF equipped overdrive channel accesses a further two modes – ‘classic crunch’ and ‘super saturated lead’.

The Blackstar HT Club 40 is powered by two EL34 power tubes and two ECC83 preamp tubes (which are a European-designated variation of the 12AX7s that are more familiar here in the States). The Clean and Overdrive Channels are footswitchable. The Clean has Volume and Tone controls with a voice switch for what the company describes as “boutique” and “modern” voicings. The Overdrive has Gain and Volume controls, a three-band EQ, Blackstar's Infinite Shape Feature, and a voice switch that offers “classic” (tight and crunchy) and fuller-body voicings. The amp’s front control panel is rounded out with Master Volume and (digital) Reverb controls.

The patent-applied-for Infinite Shape Feature: “The ISF control works in conjunction with the Bass, Middle and Treble controls. It allows you to choose the exact tonal signature you prefer. Fully counter-clockwise has a more American characteristic with a tight bottom-end and more aggressive middle, and fully clockwise has a British characteristic which is more ‘woody’ and less aggressive.” The rear panel features a Speaker Emulated Output, a Dark/Light control for the Reverb, and an effects loop. The combo weighs in at 54 lbs.

Get your Blackstar HT Club 40 Combo Amp today from Sam Ash Direct and enjoy the confidence that comes from fast, free shipping, the guaranteed lowest price and our 45/60-day return/price protection policy.

        Comments about Blackstar HT CLUB 40 1x12" Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

        This is an excellent 2 cannel amp that has a wall of sound that works in most situations. The emulated out on this amp allows the unit to be used in recording situations It also has a headphone out for the ability to use it for private practice.
        The sound is warm and you can feel the shake so to speak of the amp when its cranked up giving it an awesome tone. I used it once as backline for an outdoor event and when I saw it I had my doubts but once it was miked up through the huge PA it was like the feel of a full on stack . Highly recommend this amp for anything from a small venue to a large event situation.

          This amp does it all! With multiple gain stages and ISF tube shaping, go from crystal clear British clean tones to super saturated American liquid lead tones, and everywhere in between. This amp is a great recording tool and it's loud enough to keep up with a drummer.

            This is a super versatile amp, with great clear tones that make it super for any style of music. With your different options in clean or distorted tone, it's hard to see why this wouldn't be a great amp to rock on. With the portable ability of this amp and a great price point, this amp should be coming home with you right now! This is a real hands on product review from Sean at Sam Ash Indianapolis.

              If you haven't played through a Blackstar amp yet, and there are some out there who still haven't, you need to try them out!!

              Great....no, amazing portable tube amp with tons and tons of clean tone, great depth and warmth, clear highs and at all different volume levels. Almost unheard of considering tube amps. The price cannot be beat either.

              Depending on your music styles you will either really enjoy this amp or absolutely fall in love. I play metal, hard rock, etc. so this amp works beautifully for that, but is still rather flexible. So, bring in your guitar and plug in and see what I'm talking about. There are so many options this amp gives you that you truely must have someone demo one for you. Then we'll cut you loose for a while to have fun and explore what this great amp can offer. Happy shredding!

                Extremely versatile! The amp has plenty of power and is good for a many different venues. The amp has two different cleans and several types of distortion along with built in reverb. Perfect fit for anyone looking for a tube amp that can handle any style of music. The amp is built to be gigged and has great fit and finish.
                the included footswitch is a great bonus.
                one of the most popular selling amps in the shop!

                  This is a great sounding small tube amp with big sound. Want an "American" type sound, turn the ISF knob. Want "British"? Turn the ISF the other way. Blend for that just right clean crunch. This amp is amazing. This is a real hands on product review from Jason@ Sam Ash Huntington!

                    As stated above... I usually can't stand "versatile" amps. Amps have their uses... and when they try to bridge gaps... they sacrifice something to gain that versatility. A Fender sounds like a Fender... and Marshall Sounds like a Marshall... when you start messing with that... and it stops sounding like it's supposed to... it is a sin. Blackstar somehow did it. They managed to deliver a versatile amps that literally sounds good no matter what your style. I never say that... I hate it when other people say that... but in this case... it's actually true.

                    Amazing amp... surprisingly affordable for the quality. Just phenomenal in my book... hands down best amplifier on the market today.

                    I am a Sam Ash employee in Clearwater, FL... reviewing this amp because I LOVE it!

                        This amp has some powerful 40-watts coming at you and did the job on the small venue gig as well.
