Part of Blackstar's HT-1 Series, the innovative HT-1 guitar combo amp offers unbelievable tube sound in a compact format. Using the dual-triode ECC82 wired in a push-pull circuit, it produces the crunch and break-up characteristics of a traditional 100-watt amp at a much lower volume. Switch from normal to overdrive at the touch of a button. The patent-applied-for ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) circuit gives you infinite variation, taking you from USA to UK tone, and anywhere in between. Add in the 8" speaker, emulated speaker/headphone output, MP3/line Input, plus an 8-ohm speaker output and you have everything you need for recording or practicing.

- Black-star at its finest!
Excellent practice amp, but be warned that it's not an All-Tube Signal Path. Some pretty obvious clipping diodes in the schematic. Only way a 1-watt amp can have as much gain as the HT-1 does. Therefore it's actually a hybrid. Just a particularly... odd type of hybrid. The HT-5 does the same to a certain degree. A good little tone machine for heavy rock players for next to nothing. Nice full cleans, you can really push the tubes on the clean channel for a nice real crunchy overdrive. The distortion channel also gets nice and heavy so it can do classic metal and thrash metal nicely. The materials, feel and look of it all suggest solid quality. Better than you'd expect for the money, and the thing's heavier than it looks. So yeah in short... need a practice amp to rock, but sick of all the digital stuff? Want something that sounds natural and has it's own unique tone? Then it's worth.
