-Limited Edition amp celebrates company's five year anniversary -
MUSIKMESSE, FRANKFURT, GERMANY, March 21, 2012 - Blackstar Amplification is celebrating its five year anniversary by expanding its popular HT-5  line of tube amplifiers with a very limited edition anniversary model,  the HT-5TH.

The new 2x10 combo amp features custom cosmetics including cream  covering, paired with custom colored grille cloth. The chassis top panel  is marked as an HT-5 Anniversary Edition, and the 5th Anniversary logo  is featured on the back. Only 2,500 units will be available worldwide.

Like other models in the HT-5 lineup, the HT-5TH offers real tube sound  in a compact format. While the preamp uses a traditional 12AX7 tube, the  power section uses the dual-triode 12BH7 tube wired in a push-pull  circuit. This configuration produces the crunch and break-up characteristics of a traditional 100 Watt amp, delivering a  sound rich in tube harmonics and compression even at the lowest volume  levels.

The two-channel HT-5TH offers Clean and Overdrive channels (a  channel-switching footswitch is included). Blackstar's unique Infinite  Shape Feature (ISF) works with the three-band EQ to provide infinite  tone-shaping control that can create U.K. and U.S.A. flavors of sound-and anywhere in between-so players can easily dial in 'the  sound in their head'.


The speaker emulated line output provides a convenient way to record or  to connect to a larger sound system. Using the emulated line output will  not cancel the internal or external speaker sound, allowing the HT-5TH  to serve as a monitor source. This same output can be used with headphones for private practice. The Series Effects  Loop is equipped with a level switch to match the signal of nearly any  external effect processor. A line input is also included, allowing the  player to jam-along with a CD, MP3, etc.


To round out the package, the HT-5TH comes equipped with two 10" Celestion speakers.


The Blackstar HT-5TH five Watt, 2x10 all-tube combo amp will be available mid-Summer, 2012, with a U.S. street price of $549.99
