BLACKSTAR HT-METAL 5
The Blackstar HT METAL 5H Perfect Metal Guitar Amplifier Head 5Watt with Reverb gets a complete cosmetic and sonic overhaul to delivering an ultra high gain amp that’s specifically designed to meet the demands of today’s metal guitarists. More than capable of driving a 4×12 cabinet, the HT METAL 5H is the perfect guitar amp for the studio, home and even live use.
5 watts, 1 x ECC83, 1 x 12BH7
An innovative 5 Watt, footswitchable 2 channel valve head that uses 1 x ECC83 and 1 x 12BH7 valves.
The patented ISF control works with the Bass, Middle and Treble controls to give you access to infinite new sound possibilities from scooped to classic UK heavy metal tones and everywhere in between. This fully interactive control allows you to infinitely adjust the response of the tone control network between any of the traditional voicings. In this way you can design your own sound and truly find the sound in your head.
Two Footswitchable Channels
The HT METAL 5H has two channels available for selection. Using the Volume control while on the Clean channel you are able to deliver everything from a clean sound through to a crunch tone. Alternatively you can select the Overdrive channel and again using the Gain control, change from a clean sound on the edge of breakup right through to a distorted metal lead tone.
Unique push-pull power amp design
The HT METAL 5H power amplifier is a low powered push-pull design which produces the crunch and break-up characteristics of a traditional 100W output stage, but at a much lower volume. This is achieved by the use of a 12BH7 dual triode valve in push-pull configuration producing 5 Watts output, rich in valve harmonics and compression, sounding full and toneful even at the lowest volume level.
