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.

Top quality little Amp

Anto45, 08.05.2017
I have been using Fenders (Hot Rod and Twin Reverb) valve combos for years. They are fantastic on stage, but when it comes to small venues or practicing/recording at home...
I've found the answer in the HT-5R, a marvelous little piece of valve guitar amp.
The overall quality and robustness is surprising, and it's all in about 12 kg!
It is simply perfect at home, where you can have beautiful (distorted) sounds at a volume that stays under the normal voice talk, but magically becomes a beast if you you need to perform in a small club.
In my view, absolutely the best you can get in its category!
