The HT Club 50 MK III offers the same feature set as the HT Club 40 MK III combo in a compact, portable head format. This two channel and 4 voice head with its Power Reduction feature is equally at home in the rehearsal room, studio or club size venue. With the patented ISF control, clean and overdrive channels ranging from ‘classic crunch’ to ‘super saturated lead’ the HT Club 50 head truly is the ultimate amp for the gigging guitarist.
What’s in a Venue?
Until HT Venue, guitarists had to choose between an amp that delivered great clean tones, or great overdrives. Our mission for HT Venue was to use what we learned when designing the Artisan handwired boutique amps and the modern high gain Series One and combine the best clean and overdrives into a single valve amp; a valve amp that would give players classic reference tones in one unit – without compromise.
Incorporating everything we’ve learned since the original in 2010, the new MK III refines the tones, the components and even the look. To match the way you play today we’ve brought modern recording and connectivity to a traditional valve amp, including CabRig, our class-leading DSP speaker simulator software, plus a suite of connectivity options: USB-C, XLR D.I. and of course ¼” jack.
Boutique Cleans and Modern Overdrives
HT Venue is renowned for combining class-leading boutique cleans with modern high gain overdrives without compromise.
The Clean channel, though simple in appearance, offers vast versatility in producing classic clean and crunch tones. Both Voices utilise an ECC83 / 12AX7 valve exclusively for producing any valve compression or crunch.
The Overdrive channels have evolved from the original Series One range. The topology shares the same basic building blocks in the gain structure and tonal shaping and includes the cascaded gain stages of an ECC83 / 12AX7 double triode valve.
Two distinct Voices on each channel
Each Voice is far more than a minor tweak to the sound. With HT Venue MK III, each Voice switch introduces comprehensive circuit alterations in both preamp and power amp to recreate authentic reference tones without compromise. This includes EQ voicing, tone stack position in the circuit, the gain, and power amp damping. Achieve diverse tonal options with the flick of a single switch!
CabRig™ DSP speaker simulator technology
CabRig™, our class-leading DSP speaker simulator comes as standard, offering hundreds of different cabinet, mic, and room settings. Save your favourites to three presets for easy access directly from the amplifier. Switch into standby for ‘silent’ recording or silent stage use. The USB-C port lets you send 4 channels (clean/dry, preamp out, stereo emulated out) to your DAW, ensuring the easiest way to capture authentic valve tone in recordings.
Blackstar’s patented ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) 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.
MK III also has an all-new reverb voiced for guitar tones. Switch between ‘Dark’ room and ‘Light’ plate settings and deep-edit other parameters via our free Architect software.
Ideal for modern musicians, the MK III has all the connectivity you need, effects loop, USB-C audio for professional recording and an XLR D.I. for live performances.
