HT-5C with a Great Tweak

Blackstar's HT-5C is a great 5 watt combo amp that's loaded with amazing Blackstar features. With this model, the HT-5R, they took those same great features but added the same stereo reverb that you can find in the amps that are part of the HT venue series. With that in mind, you get great studio quality reverb along with the other features you get as part of the HT-5 series like having two channels, ISF control, and a three band EQ. 

Main Features

  • Studio quality reverb
  • Two Channels
  • ISF


Blackstar's Infinite Shaping Feature technology has been one of the most innovative features in an amplifier to date. In today's world musicians have hundreds of examples of tone to look towards for inspiration to create their own. That being said, they don't always have the flexibility of doing so. The ISF control allows you to switch between a variety of what you would consider to be classic British and American tones. Fully counterclockwise gives you more American characteristics, while clockwise is more British.

For a combo that is both mobile and great sounding, check out the Blackstar HT-5R!
