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:

      The Blackstar Club 40 simply put is a cool amp. The Blackstar company was created by guys who used to work at Marshall and branched out. I am also a big fan of Marshall tone and having a company like Blackstar creating amps like this is a win for fans of Rock Roll distortion with vintage vibe. Blackstar adds their own sonic footprint to the tried and true allowing you the tools to open your creativity. The Club 40 will stand loud and proud next to heavy hitting drummers and not lose its authority when you turn down. You gotta check this out if your in the market for a new amp or even if your just adding to your collection. "This is a real hands on product review from Dominic@ Sam Ash Lombard, IL"

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

      This amp offers a really good balance from clean to distortion. The clean channel is dark and moody but remains clear at loud volumes. The distortion goes from open and gritty to over the top heavy with ease. The built in reverb is useful. The only drawback is limited tone control on the clean channel but it is easy to find the sweet spot. It is tube and warm and full sounding. This is a hands on review from Zak at Sam Ash Buffalo Grove.

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

          Blackstar has emerged as one of the new leaders in guitar amplification. This tube amp will give you everything from clean tone to over the top distortion. Powerful enough to play in almost every situation, it features straight forward controls, with the added ISF knob where you can sweep from the 'British sound' to the 'American sound' with ease.

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

            This amp is a great amp to any player looking for a classic rock sound, all the way to a heavy metal sound, and even all the way down to clean ambient music. I'd use it personally for any good jam rock band music. Tool being my favorite band for this sound as they go all the way from heavy gain, down to clean mellow music, and this covers it all. The ISF knob really allows you to change the whole feeling of this amp as well. cranking in up gives a very aggressive sound in the upper range, and backing it out really gives a nice warmth to the overall sound.

              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!

                    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!
