Blackstar HT-1 Guitar Amplifier

HT-1 Guitar Amplifier and Cabinet

The HT-1 are the perfect studio and practice guitar amps, packing all the great tone and innovative features of the award-winning HT-5 valve amp into a 1 Watt format.

The patent-applied-for ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) circuit on the guitar amp gives you infinite adjustment over the characteristics of the tone control network and takes you from the USA to the UK and anywhere in between. Add a fully specified speaker emulated output, MP3 / Line Input, plus an 4-16Ω speaker output and you have everything you need for recording or practicing.

Blackstar won the coveted MIPA 'Best Amp Award' at the Frankfurt Musikmesse 2011. These awards are voted for by 120 leading music magazines from around the world and in this hotly fought category with some other big names, the HT-1 guitar amps won the award.
