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, 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. A single 12” Celestion speaker delivers the tone you’re looking for.

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. Footswitch is included.

I highly recommend this tube amp to a beginner.


Great amp. The sound is superb. It does so much Im still learning to work it. I wanted an amp that I could grow in to and not one that I would sell when I am ready for an upgrade and only get a 1/4 of what I paid. This amp is priced fair and I will have it for a long time no need to upgrade as I get better.



British and American Tone Machine


British and American tonal capabilities in one amp make the HT Club 40 a force to be reckoned with. The tighter and more aggressive American and midrange-heavy British tones can be blended together for even more tonal variety. I love the range of gain that can be achieved from this little guy. Sometimes I like playing some blues, sometimes some shred, sometimes classic rock or bluegrass. This amp is perfect for most playing styles with the huge possible combination of tones.
