A true workhorse!

Stephen648, 18.05.2013
I play in a couple of bands and play all sorts of styles but I wanted a simple but true sound from my guitar!
This amp is very simple to use and has a fantastic clean channel which is warm and bright with plenty of bottom end and the o/d channel has all the options to sound crunchy/heavy rock and metal!
The isf feature is very good and you can change your tone completely!
This amp is 50 watts and packs an almighty punch! I play through a custom 2 x 12 i built and i have played the amp at screaming volume with loads of headroom left!
Its built to the balls and very simple to use. The reverb is great also and has 2 settings and is footswitchable. The amp reacts very well to your guitar setup so if you take off some volume you get a different tone but lose no clarity or sustain!
For a gigging musician you cannot ask for more. The onboard effects loop is brilliant and there is no hissing or feedback when using it, so plug in you favourite pedals and play away.
I have used a Marshall head in the past but this beats the jcm series hands down in all areas as the overdrive is devistating and full of clarity both with humbuckers or single coils.
The only thing to bear in mind is the features, if you are used to line 6 ect with built in effects then look away because this isn't that.
If you are looking for a well built head with plenty of power and great tone then look no further!
They also look great as wel!!

Great clean channel, okay drive channel.

Flatfifth, 04.02.2015
The Blackstar HT Club 50 is a versatile two-channel amplifier that can cover most bases pretty well.
Both channels have two different modes you can choose from. The clean channel has a "Boutique" mode which is fairly mid-rangey and can give you a decent crunch/overdrive tone when turned up all the way, as well as a "Modern" mode with considerably less gain, but a much bigger, deeper sound. The Modern mode, when turned up all the way, breaks up just a little bit depending on how hot your pickups are, and makes for an excellent base for overdrive pedals.
Going over to the drive channel, you get two more similar sounding modes: a "Classic" mode and a "Modern" mode, with the latter having a more aggressive sound. Both modes can give you a very clear and defined high-gain tone, though i personally find them a bit flat sounding. If you turn the gain down on the drive channel, the tone gets weak very quickly. That being said, it's not bad by any means.
Problems arise when you want to use both channels together. They just sound so different. The clean channel not having separate gain and volume controls results in the modern clean being much louder than the drive channel when turned up all the way.
Most of the time I use the modern clean only, with drive pedals in front of it. Partly because I don't like the drive channel very much, and partly because it is just so great at that.
