The Blackstar HT5R Guitar Combo Amplifier delivers powerful all-tube tone, perfect for home practice and studio use! Order yours from Sam Ash Direct today for the guaranteed lowest price.

The Blackstar HT5 Guitar Combo Amplifier is a 5 watt amp that will deliver true tube tone without the floor-shaking volume levels associated with larger tube amps. The HT5 is a perfect tool for home use. Using the speaker output emulator, you can conjure up tones normally associated with massive, loud 100 watt stacks, but you will achieve these tones at a manageable volume, which will prevent any neighborhood disturbances.

The Blackstar HT5 is powered by 1 x ECC83 tube and 1 x 12BH7 tube. The 12” Blackbird 50 custom design speaker will deliver the tone you dream about in at reasonable volume level. With the addition of an onboard Digital Stereo Reverb, you will be able to add a retro-warmth to your tone. The HT5 is also perfect for quieter, small gigs, or if you choose to use the HT5 on a larger gig, you have the option of running it direct into the sound system.

The ISF control is unique to Blackstar Amplification and represents a major step forward in its tone-shaping flexibility. This fully interactive tone control network allows you to dial in great sounds between traditional British and modern American voicings. This results in an infinite number of alternative tone choices. A 2 channel footswitch is included.

Order your Blackstar HT5R 1x12 5 Watt Guitar Combo Amplifier from Sam Ash Direct today with the security of our 45/60 day return/price protection policy, and be sure to take advantage of our fast, free shipping.

Traded back for AC15


If you're into super heavy, high-gain stuff, then this is for you. IF you're looking for a classic rock-clean versatile amp, you're much better off with a blues junior or vox AC15. I had mine for three months and sold it.

A 7 lb amp with great tone and loud enough for any bar gig. She has an fx loop too, which is helpful- the only drag is the clean channel only has one "EQ" knob, whereas the OD channel has bass mid & treble.

Best Amp EVER!!


This is a fantastic amp it is attractive both in looks and in sound. I haven't quite got the opportunity to try this baby out for a gig yet but from what I've played and heard this thing can sound amazing smooth and quiet and for a 5 watt amp blows me away with how loud it can get. its versatile tone and how it handles clean and distorted sounds is incredible I love this amp and recommend it to anybody who's looking for a sweet sounding decent priced(for a tube amp) versatile amp.
