Great deal for the money
TC Vu, 14.02.2014
Looking for a nice sounding practice amp for home I had purchased the Blackstar HT -1 Combo a while ago. The tonal deficits of the 1- watt device (eg lack of brilliance) made me try the HT -5R amp head (along with a 1x12 box of Harley Benton) . Well, I'm excited about what a great sound you get out of this reasonably cheap combination.
I have tried the amp with a Strat, an Ibanez Artist, a hollowbody jazz guitar and a semi-acoustic (ES -style). The amplifier works well with all types of guitars - from jazz to metal, anything goes!
The great strength of this amp is that it is suitable for both home and for the rehearsal room and for gigs. In the rehearsal room and at concerts I go through a Redbox into the PA .
Black Star has also managed to produce amplifiers that sound good on headphones. My HT -1 sounds even better through headphones than the built-in speaker.
