HT Club 40 MkII Black and Blue Edition

Style. Quality. And above all, Tone.

HT Club 40 MkII Black and Blue Front View

In a unique combination of baby blue, tan and cream aesthetics, an iconic Celestion Vintage 30 and at the heart of it all, RCA-style remakes of Blackplate 6L6 power valves, the HT Club 40 MkII Black and Blue Edition is truly a living classic.

TAD have recreated the highly-regarded vintage Blackplate RCA 6L6GC valves, resulting in a deeper bass response and smooth top end. These exclusive 6L6GC-STR valves along with the true icon of amplifier speakers, the Celestion Vintage 30, will bring vintage quality and tone to the modern guitarist.

Blackplate 6L6 Valves

Blackplate valves have been considered the holy grail of vacuum tubes ever since the golden age of tube manufacturing. With authentic construction and vintage tone, we’re proud to bring back these sought-after valves.

Celestion Vintage 30 speaker

Celestion’s most revealing speaker, the Vintage 30 features enormously detailed and complex overtones, a warm low-end, a famously rich vocal mid-range and a beautifully detailed top-end.

Tonal Options

Voice Description
Clean Voice 1 American Clean – Very clean and bright but with a solid and tight low end.
Clean Voice 2 British Clean – Looser bass response with warmer mid-range and is very sensitive to the output level of the guitar and the player’s dynamics.
OD Voice 1 Classic Overdrive – ‘Hot-rodded’ overdrive with medium power damping.
OD Voice 2 Modern Overdrive – A strong mid-emphasised pre-overdrive boost, as well as a looser, more aggressive sound due to reduced power amp damping.
