An innovative 1 Watt, two channel valve combo, with ISF, MP3/Line In and reverb - The Blackstar HT-1R!

The innovative HT-1R offers unbelievable tube sound in a compact format. Using the dual-triode 12AU7, wired in a push-pull circuit, produces the crunch and break-up characteristics of a traditional 100 Watt amp at a much lower volume. Switch from normal to overdrive at the touch of a button.

The patent-applied-for ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) circuit gives you infinite variation, taking you from USA to UK tone, and anywhere in between. Add in the 8" speaker, Reverb, Emulated Speaker/Headphone output, MP3 / Line Input, plus an 8 Ohm speaker output and you have everything you need for recording or practicing.

    Comments about Blackstar Ht-1R 1X8" Tube Guitar Combo Amplifier:

    I really like this amp. I was skeptical at first. I picked it up at a closeout store so I got it at less than half price. Initially I was not sure that I would like it but it is a really useful tool for practice or recording. Seem to be very sturdy. I've had mine for over a year. I take good care of it and I have not had any issues or problems with it. I was so impressed with it I went out and bought the HT Club 60 2x12. I am really impressed with both amps. I tend to hang on to stuff that is this well made. Check'em out!
