MELVILLE, NY, June 27, 2011 — Blackstar Amplification is now shipping the HT-1 guitar amplifier. Available in a 1 x 8" combo   (either with or without stereo digital reverb), or head (with reverb)   configuration, the 2-channel (Clean & OD) HT-1 is an ideal studio   and practice amp. It packs all the tone and innovative features of the   award-winning HT-5 tube amp into a 1-Watt format. The patent-applied-for   ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) circuit offers infinite adjustment over   the characteristics of the tone control network, enabling players to   design their own tone to fit “the sound in their head” taking them from the U.S.A. to the U.K. and anywhere in between.

For  home and studio use, this new amp delivers a  full, toneful sound even  at the lowest volume level, via Blackstar’s  brand new tube power  amplifier topology. The HT-1 power amplifier  features a low powered  push-pull design, which produces the crunch and  break-up  characteristics of a traditional 100-Watt output stage but at a  much  lower volume. This is achieved by the use of an ECC82 dual triode  in  push-pull configuration producing 1-Watt output, which is rich in  tube  harmonics and compression. The HT-1 also has a state-of-the-art speaker emulated output for studio use, providing desirable tube tone straight to tape or disk, or through headphones.

Also  featured is an MP3 / Line Input, along with an  8-Ohm speaker output,  which allows the amp to be run into an external  speaker cabinet, to  provide a complete recording or practicing  experience.
The HT-1 amps are now available in stores, with U.S. MSRP’s as follows:

HT-1 Combo – $319.99
HT-1R Combo with Reverb – $379.99
HT-1HR Head with Reverb – $319.99
