Take It From The Top

The HT-1 is the perfect amp for playing at home with real tube sound. It inherits the characteristics which shaped the success of its big brother, the HT-5. The HT-1 also has an output with HP emulation, making it suitable for use with headphones, or to record your guitar parts without the need for a microphone. Add to that a line input for your MP3 player, as well as an 8 ohm speaker output allowing you to use the HT-1 on the speaker of your choice, and you have the ideal training and recording amplifier.Dial in the built-in digital reverb and you have a killer, practical amp at a price you won't believe.


Blackstar’s Take

The HT-1 is the perfect studio and practice amp, packing all the great tone and innovative features of the award-winning HT-5 valve amp into a 1 Watt format.

The patent-applied-for ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) circuit gives you infinite adjustment over the characteristics of the tone control network and takes you from the USA to the UK and anywhere in between. So now you can effectively design your own tone and finally find 'the sound in your head'. In making the HT-1 ideally suited to home and studio use, the aim was to develop a valve amp which sounded full and toneful even at the lowest volume level.

With this in mind the Blackstar design team designed a brand new valve power amplifier topology. The HT-1 power amplifier is a low powered push-pull design which produces the crunch and break-up characteristics of a traditional 100W output stage but at a much lower volume. This is achieved by the use of an ECC82 dual triode in push-pull configuration producing 1 Watt output, which is rich in valve harmonics and compression.

The HT-1 also has a fully specified speaker emulated output which further enhances the studio credentials and allows any guitarist to get amazing valve tone straight to tape or disk, or through headphones. Add to this an MP3 / Line Input, along with an 8 speaker output which allows you to run the amp into an external speaker cabinet of your choice, and you have everything you need for recording or practicing.
