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.

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

      I run the ASH ROCK rock group program out of the Indianapolis Sam Ash Learning Center. We currently have 18 active bands. As you can imagine, a guitar amp that will work for all of them is a lot to ask. We've tried many different amps in the ASH ROCK rehearsal room, and some have been better than others for the task at hand. Some of the key features we need are volume, tone, and ease of use. With only an hour per week for each band to do their thing, the amp we use must of course sound great and be heard above loud drums and a PA, but honestly it also has to be easy and quick for each different guitar player to dial in quickly. This amp definitely contains all these features. It had plenty of volume, but the tone and clarity stays even as the volume increases. It takes no time for each guitarist to dial in his or her tone and gain preferences, and the footswitch is as simple as can be...you're either clean or dirty and if you like you can add some reverb. Blackstar is a GREAT rock guitar amplifier. Now, how about some casters? Sucker's heavy...

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

        This is THE amp for small to medium venues and even small outdoor events. Don't be afraid to crank it up because, tone quality on each setting is not compromised by volume. From clean to overdrive this amp is incredibly responsive on a variety of instruments. This amp has all of the qualities that you look for in a Fender or Marshall for a very reasonable price. This is a real hands-on product review from Natalie @ Sam Ash New Haven.

            This amp takes care of all the different genres! Great for Classic Rock, Blues, and some 80's Metal and even Country! I would used this amp for some gigs about medium club size venues. :)

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

              This midsize tube amp is great for gigs and at home rehearsals. It has a range from clean to crunchy in a quick and easy switch away.
              This amp is not very great for heavy travel due to the sensitive tubes in it. But light gigging is perfect.

                Great modern sound with lots of power. Very warm sound that you get from tubes. It's a little heavy compared to solid state amps, but thats made up for in tone. This is a real hands on product review from Richard@ Sam Ash Miami

                  Great all around combo amp. Tone for days. Useable reverb.
                  Sound more like a sweet classic tube amp then anything else in that price range. Wish it had more clean channel tone options,
                  but surely gets the job done. This is a real hands on review from Joe@Sam Ash Huntington

                        I have used this amp to record my friend that plays guitar. Nothing but good things to say about this amp. One of the best amps in this price range. Boutique setting on the clean is amazing to me. It breaks up without killing you. Really like the tone of this amp. It actually has more gain than I expected.
