Perfection.

Regular Jay, 18.02.2018
A work of art, Blackstar should be proud. Perfect practice amp for the bedroom player or for small jams with friends, but can be very loud for small gigs should it be needed. Fairly portable, aesthetically gorgeous. The reverb is tastefully subtle. The overdrive channel is absolutely out of this world, beautiful distinctions between the English sound and American sound. 100% recommend to a friend.

Blackstar HT-5R Combo

10.02.2015
Bought this one after owning the old version (without the reverb, with 10" speaker) for about 2 years. I loved the old one. I only upgraded to get the 12" speaked and more gain.
Let's start about all things I liked about the HT-5R:
- The clean channel sounds really nice and it's impossible to make it sound bad. There is only one knob to change the tone here - it goes from bright Fender-y kinda thing to a muddy (but not much) dark tone.
- Overdrive channell is really good for old rock stuff

Now, things i didn't like:
- Speaker. This is a 12" driver made by Blackstar but it's nowhere near as powerfull as the old 10" Celestion.
- High Gain sound has lost it's "valve" tone somehow. It sounded really solid state to me.
- Reverb is "only" decent

Don't get me wrong: it's still a good amp. It just doesn't sound as warm/organic/tubey as the original HT-5.
