Blackstar HT-5R MKII


The Blackstar HT-5R MKII guitar amp packs a high-gain punch, perfect for guitarists seeking an authentic tube tone at home or in the studio.




The Blackstar HT-5R MKII is a compact yet mighty guitar amp that provides sweet tube-driven tones. It boasts a 5-watt output that can be switched to a lower 0.5-watt setting for bedroom levels. The amp also features a 12-inch Celestion speaker, a three-band EQ, onboard reverb, and a noteworthy ISF control that lets you shape the amp’s voicing from British to American and anything in between.

Overall, the HT-5R MKII is a versatile and practical choice for guitar players who want tube tone without breaking the bank or their neighbors’ eardrums.

Now, let’s inject some humor into the mix, although don’t expect belly laughs, haha.

Are you tired of those bulky, complicated guitar amps that require a degree in rocket science to operate? Or maybe you’re sick of lugging around a 100-watt monster that’s louder than a jet engine and hotter than the sun? Fear not, my fellow guitarist, because Blackstar has the perfect solution for you: the HT-5R MKII.

Yes, the HT-5R MKII is so compact, you might mistake it for a toaster. But don’t be fooled by its size; this baby packs a punch. With five watts of pure tube power, you can go from bedroom whisper to living room rock star in no time. And thanks to the innovative ISF control, you can sound like a Foo Fighter or a Rolling Stone with the turn of a knob. It’s like having Mick Jagger and Dave Grohl in a box, minus the egos and leather pants.

But wait, there’s more. The HT-5R MKII also comes with a built-in reverb, so you can add some ambiance to your playing without resorting to empty beer cans or bathroom tiles. And with the three-band EQ, you can shape your tone to your heart’s content, as long as you don’t mess with the dials too much and unleash the feedback demons.

So, if you want an amp that’s powerful, versatile, and easy to use, get the Blackstar HT-5R MKII. Your fingers, ears, and neighbors will thank you. Remember, it’s not the size that matters, it’s how you use it. And this amp knows how to use it. Rock on, dudes and dudettes!
