Using the HT-1R as a starting point, HT METAL 5H gets a complete overhaul. delivering an ultra high gain amp designed to meet the demands of metal guitarists. The patented ISF circuit gives you control over the tone. Taking you from scooped US to UK metal and anywhere between. The speaker emulated output is also all you need for recording or practicing.

Custom Metal Cosmetics

The HT METAL series all feature custom cosmetics designed more for metal guitarists. All the range feature black knobs, metal panel, metal logo and on some models a custom metal grille.

5 Watt, Push-Pull Design

The HT-5 is a low powered push-pull design which produces the characteristics of a 100W. This is achieved by the use of an ECC82 dual triode which is rich in valve harmonics and compression. sounding full of tone even at the lowest volume level.

Two Channels

The HT-5 has two channels available for selection. a Clean channel and an Overdrive channel. Using the Gain control while on the Clean channel delivers everything from a clean sound through to a crunch tone. Alternatively you can select the Overdrive channel and again using the Gain control, change from a clean sound on the edge of breakup right through to a distorted lead tone.

ISF Control

The ISF control works in conjunction with the Tone control. It allows you to choose the exact tone signature you prefer. Counter clockwise is a more American characteristic with a more aggressive mid range. and fully CW is a British characteristic which is more ‘woody’ and less aggressive.

Speaker Emulated Output

The Blackstar emulated output design is a new benchmark for pro direct recording. This no-compromise design makes it easy to get your tone to disk and tape. You can also use it to run a line out to a PA.

Digital Reverb

The reverb control sets the evel of the reverb effect. With the control fully counter clockwise there will be no reverb. Turning the control clockwise will increase the amount of reverb.
