  • New Blackstar Day!!!!

    I just bought this today at few hours ago. Blackstar HT1 head. It's a 1 watt amp head. Played at B-Street music for a while and walked out of the store with it. It was sort of purchased on a whim even though I was "looking into" getting one of this amps for a while now.

    Obligatory pics!

    By the way, it has nice cleans and goes as close to hi-gain as you're going to get out of a little amp.

      Have fun with it. I have the HT5h and have been very pleased with it. I love all these new low wattage amps that are available now.

            Yeah man I'm really excited that amp makers are moving into the really low watt range. I own a 5 watt Blackheart and it's still too loud to play without pissing off my neighbors. I bought an attenuator and even at 5 watts I have to "attenuate" the output so much that it sucks all of the highs out of the amp. I went out and bought this little 1 watt head, and to be honest, even at 1 watt, it is still too loud to play at full tube saturation levels. The difference however, is that when I use the attenuator on the 1 watt, I don't have to "attenuate" the output level too much and so it allows me to preserver the amps natural tone while playing at apartment acceptable levels.

                    Congrats, I have been taking a long look at these little guys. The combo will probably be my next purchase.

                        considering the ht5 can shake the walls, I'm going to imagine the 1 watt is still pretty dang loud in the bedroom. I guess it makes sense. If you sorta need something in the 15 watt range or higher to play with a band, it's not clear what the point of something with 5 watts is. 1 watt seems like a great bedroom/recording amp.
