Blackstar HT20 Studio 20 Head Guitar Amp
The "HT Venue" Series of amps is the latest great design in Blackstar's line of amps. These medium-priced, medium-powered amps deliver performance that is every bit as pro as their premium Series One line. If you need a little more power than the award-winning HT5, or you're too worried to take your beloved Artisan on the road, the HT Venue series is for you! The perfect solution for the working musician.
As you probably know, Blackstar are famous for being able to create highly versatile tube amps at incredible prices. Most amps in this price range do one thing well, but the HT Venue amps deliver lush cleans, and great British & American drives effortlessly. Just check out the range of tones the Venue series can achieve in the video demo of the Stage 60 (the 60w 2x12 in the Venue range) below.
- "These are amps that should thrive in the unforgiving world of club gigging and will easily handle being chucked in a car boot night after night without losing their good looks"
- "The overdrive channel is capable of covering everything from mild crunch to massive sustain, with an aggressive but not overly vicious edge..."
Nick Guppy, Guitarist Magazine.
20 Watts is perfect for almost any application. Rehearsal, practice, stage and studio you can get sweet tones without going over the top. This head version can be paired with any of the cabs in the HTV range depending on how much air you need to move. Truly versatile indeed!
N.B: Cabinet not included! Please see the "Related Items" section for the matching cab.
