This Blackstar Amp is good condition but it is worth noting that it is ex display and has a small tear to the tolex on the front of the amp (see pictures)
Blackstar HT5 5 Watt Valve Combo with Footswitch HT-5
The Blackstar HT5 proves that small is beautiful! The HT5 has everything a guitarist could want from a low output tube amp. Sweet sounding, warm clean tones at low volume, going through some nice crunch with a little more volume, & singing like a bird when it starts to cook.
The Blackstar HT5 is perfect for home & studio use - it'll really get the most out of your guitar. And for gigs, if its just a jam or a small gig you'll be fine, and for bigger stuff, stick a mic in front of it & you'll be away. And just when you thought it couldn't get any better, you can pick the Blackstar HT5 up in one hand, and pay for it without needing a mortgage. We love it (can you tell?).

HT5 - 5 Star Review - December 2008
The new HT-5 got a rocking 5/5 and a Best Buy award from Total Guitar magazine. Not bad for a little fella! Stephen Lawson summarises the Pros: 'Looks, build quality, awesome valve distortion at low volumes' and the Cons: 'Not a single thing!' Says it all really...
HT-5 awarded Guitarist Choice award - November 2008
The HT-5 is the latest Blackstar product to be covered in critical acclaim. The range consists of a combo, head and mini stack and punches well beyond its 5 watts. As Nick Guppy from Guitarist magazine puts it, 'It's the fact you can get that everything on 11 effect at benign sound pressure levels that's most surprising.' The combo and the stack both received Guitarist Choice awards. Nick Guppy concludes, 'We reckon that the little HT-5 is likely to find a lot of dedicated fans and we suggest you order yours now. There might be quite a rush!'

MATCHING BLACKSTAR EXTENSION CAB
Want to give your HT5 a little more umpf!? Add the matching HT110 extension cab & you'll get a little more volume & a bit more bass end. Plus you can make a cool looking mini stack too! Click here to see the HT110.
If you require a longer footswitch lead for your HT5, for playing on a large stage for example, we recommend the Boss FS5U. You can connect it to your HT5 using an ordinary guitar cable of any length you like!
NEED SOME REVERB?
There is no built in reverb in an HT5, but it's easy to add! You'll need a decent Reverb pedal (see optional extras below for some suggestions) plus a couple of patch leads to connect the pedal to the amps FX loop (also known as the send & return loop). Most players will have the reverb effect on all the time & just leave the pedal sitting on top of the amp, so the patch leads only need to be short. A bit of reverb will make your HT5 sound even more amazing than it already does!
