The stunning HT-5RW packs all the valve-powered punch of its standard HT-5R brother – and dresses it in ice-cool white for a truly distinctive look. Featuring two footswitchable channels, Blackstar's patented ISF control, a custom-designed 12" speaker and a lush digital reverb, the HT-5RW is guaranteed to sound as great as it looks.
The HT-5RW is the ultimate studio and practice amp, packing all the great tone and innovative features of the award-winning HT valve pedals into a two channel, footswitchable valve amp format.
The patented ISF control works with the Bass, Middle and Treble controls to give you access to infinite new sound possibilities from the USA to the UK and everywhere in-between. This fully interactive control allows you to infinitely adjust the response of the tone control network between any of the traditional voicings. In this way you can design your own sound and truly find the sound in your head.
The HT-5RW has two channels available for selection, a Clean channel and an Overdrive channel. Using the Volume control while on the Clean channel you are able to deliver 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.
The HT-5RW 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 a 12BH7 dual triode valve in push-pull configuration producing 5 Watts output, which is rich in valve harmonics and compression, sounding full and toneful even at the lowest volume level.
The HT-5C and HT-5RW both feature a Blackstar custom voiced 12inch Blackbird 50 speaker.
