With the Blackstar HT-1R MkII, seen here with a Limited Edition Baby Blue Tolex covering, you get a 1 watt valve amplifier that offers great tone and innovative features in a super-compact format.

Small In Size, Big On Tone

Blackstar’s original HT-1 amp is one of the best-selling valve amps they’ve ever released.

Now, after two years of extensive research and development, the HT-1R MkII has arrived and it’s better than ever.

Blackstar HT-1R MkII 1w Valve Combo Amp, Baby Blue Key Features:

  • 1 Watt Output
  • ECC83 Preamp Valve
  • ECC82 Power Amp Valve
  • 2 Channels, 4 Distinct Voices
  • USB Audio Out
  • Newly Voiced Studio Quality Reverb
  • Boutique Styling

Fantastic Clean Tones

The Blackstar HT-1R MkII has two distinct channels. Both of which feature two footswitchable voices for you to choose between.

On the Clean channel, you can choose between “American” and “British” inspired voices.

The American style voice is clean, bright and refined with solid bass response.

Switch over to the British style voice and you get a highly responsive chime with looser bottom end. Drive the British voice hard and you’ll enjoy some crispy mid-range overdrive.

Awesome Overdrive

The Overdrive channel gives you two voices that are high in gain but without the weak, top-end fizz you get from some other amps.

Voice 1 gives you Classic British Blackstar overdrive that’s rich and natural. Play it clean or push it for some Super Crunch.

Flick over to Voice 2 for a High Gain overdrive derived from that found on the popular HT Venue MkII and enjoy some high-end aggression and tight, resonant low-end.

Great New Features

In addition to the footswitchable voices, the Blackstar HT-1R MkII has some other great new features.

This includes a USB audio out which is perfect for recording as you can go straight into the computer to capture your sound.

There’s also a newly voiced studio quality reverb built-in for some beautifully creamy tones.

Of course, the new amp has a great new look with some eye-catching boutique styling. With its newly designed cabinet with 3 degree angle, top-loader panel and stage-friendly chickenhead knobs, the whole amp is nicely refined.

Other great features include Blackstar’s patented ISF tone control so you can really shape your sound.

There’s also a headphone socket with emulated output so you can get great cabinet tone without using the built-in 8” speaker.

In addition, there’s an mp3/line in so you can play your favourite songs through the amp or play along with backing tracks.

A Powerhouse Amp in A Compact Unit

With its 8” speaker and 1 watt output, the HT-1R MkII is the perfect amp for playing at home or recording in the studio. It gives you that great tube amp tone but at lower volumes.
