Introducing the HT-1R MKII
Back in 2010 our HT-1 set the stage for ultra low wattage amps perfect for home and studio. Now the MkII takes this revered design a step further with incredible performance and game-changing new features from USB recording to footswitchable voices.
Low Wattage Valve Goodness
Valve amps sound best when cranked. The unique feel, dynamics and natural compression of a valve power stage running hot is widely considered the holy grail of guitar tone. The problem is turning your 100W valve amp up to these volumes is neither practical for yourself, nor your neighbors. Our HT-1R MkII with its unique push-pull power amp gives you this coveted valve performance at volumes suitable for home practice and recording.
Perfect for Practice & Recording
Alongside providing capture-ready valve tones at any volume, HT-1R MkII comes equipped with a direct USB output for the simplest way to get valve tone into your recordings without the need for an interface. The best part? These amps have in-built load protection, meaning you can use them without a cabinet connected for silent practice and recording.
The patented ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) control is unique to Blackstar Amplification and represents a major step forward in tone shaping flexibility. The ISF control shifts the response of the three control tone stack between, a US type response at one end, and at the other, a UK type response. Importantly, in between the two extremes lie an infinite number of alternative tone choices that would be otherwise unavailable.
Studio Quality Reverb
Our new studio quality reverb has been referenced against the most revered vintage and modern reverb units, designed to perfectly complement guitar tones.
Record Without a Cabinet
HT-1R MkII have in-built load protection, meaning you can use the head for direct USB recording or headphone practice, without the need for a connected cabinet. The ultimate portable practice and recording rig.
Full Tone, Low Volumes
Featuring unique push-pull power amps, HT-1R MkII are designed to create a full sound even at the lowest of volumes, helping to create that sound in your head no matter the environment.
Two Channels, Two Voices.
Two selectable clean and overdrive voicings. On the clean, choose between a classic American bright, mid-shaped tone with a rounded bottom end. Or, a classic British tone – crunchy, chimey and dynamically responsive. On the overdrive, choose between a tight and articulate super-crunch tone. Or, a higher gain drive with loose power amp response.
A 2-way footswitch can be connected to the HT-1RH giving full control over both channel and voice selection for clean and overdrive.
The compact cabinet has a 3 degree angle on the front face, top-loader panel and stage-friendly chickenhead knobs giving the HT-1R MkII a stunning boutique style.
