Blackstar Expands HT Venue Series with HT Club 50H Head
October 17, 2011
|Blackstar Amplification is expanding its popular HT Venue Series of combo tube amplifiers to include the HT Club 50H head, available alone or with the matching HTV-412A cabinet as a specially priced, limited-run bundle (HT50STACK) in the U.S. The HT Club 50H provides 50 Watts of power, and is based on the features of Blackstar’s popular HT Club 40 Combo amp.
Offering two channels and four modes, the HT Club 50 Head is ideal for creating a full or half stack for club-sized venues. The preamp stage offers 2 x ECC83/12AX7 vacuum tubes. The 50-Watt EL34-driven power amp has amazing punch and dynamics that easily cut through in any band situation. The matching HTV-412A cabinet features four Celestion 12" speakers.
Each channel features an independent Voice switch that greatly enhances the tonal versatility. The Clean channel provides Boutique or Modern voicings; the Overdrive channel offers a choice between Classic and Modern. The three-band EQ is augmented by the Infinite Shape Feature (ISF), which works with the EQ to provide infinite new tone-shaping control. Equipped with digital reverb (including a Dark/Bright switch), emulated output and an effects loop, the HT Club 50H is designed to be a solid and flexible tube head for nearly any gigging situation. A 2-way footswitch is included.
Pricing is as follows:
HT CLUB 50H 50-Watt Venue Series Head: $879
HTV-412A 4x12 angled Cabinet: $749
Authorized Blackstar Dealers in the U.S. will be offering the HT50STACK at a special introductory price of $999 for a limited time.
