Huge tone. Perfect for practice and production. The Blackstar HT-5R MKII Valve Combo is a tonally rich amplifier. The HT-5R is compact in size and emits a full, warm tone - it is perfect for practising or laying down tracks in the studio. Despite the HT-5R's minimal proportions, it delivers a very impactful sound. Even when pushed to its limits, it stays vibrant and clear.
As well as the classic British valve warmth, the sharp American style tone is offered up by the 12BH7 valve. A powerful voicing system allows for huge tonal variety. You'll always have the right tone for the job. All you must do is tap the footswitch, for massive gains in sound and diversification in tone. Cleans, overdrives, whatever your style, it all sounds incredible.
The USB and XLR outputs mean you can get studio quality recording straight into your production system and a handy power switch that reduces the power to 10 gives you the same Blackstar quality but at a lower volume. The perfect practice amp - housed in a boutique design and constructed with care.

Killer tones and innovative features make the HT-5R MkII the ultimate studio and practice valve amp. Thanks to the unique 5W push-pull design utilising the 12BH7 valve, it delivers huge tone at any volume.
The best clean tones: Now with two footswitchable Voices, one with an “American” character and the other with a Class A “British” sound – both are 100% Blackstar:
Voice 1 “American” – A clean, bright and tight tone with a solid bass response for a refined American tone.
Voice 2 “British” – A highly responsive “chime” with looser bottom for the British tone that can be pushed into a mid-range overdrive when driven hard.
The best overdrives: The two footswitchable Overdrive Voices are characterised by a tone which is high in gain, but avoids any of the detached top-end “fizz” often found in other designs.
Voice 1 “Classic” – This is the Classic “British” Blackstar overdrive. Rich and natural it goes all the way to Super Crunch gain but cleans up beautifully.
Voice 2 “High Gain” – Inspired by the critically acclaimed HT Venue MkII high gain sounds, this overdrive has additional aggression in the high end with a tight resonant low-end.
The best features: Joining Blackstar’s patented ISF tone control are USB and balanced XLR outputs for more recording flexibility, plus a power reduction switch taking you down to 10% power and a newly voiced studio quality reverb.
The best looks: Even more refined and boutique the newly design cabinet has a 3 degree angle, top-loader panel and stage-friendly chickenhead knobs.
