Blackstar HT-5R MkIII

Blackstar HT-5R MkIII

The HT-5R MK III takes the revered design from the award-winning MkII series to new heights with incredible performance, gorgeous looks and game-changing new features from improved voicings to the addition of our IR-based CabRig™ speaker simulator software.

 

Valve amps sound best when cranked; the unique feel, dynamics and natural compression of a valve power stage running hot is widely considered the holy grail of guitar tone. The problem is turning your 100W valve amp up to these volumes is neither practical for yourself, nor your neighbours. Our HT-5R MK III, with its unique push-pull power amp, gives you this coveted valve performance at volumes suitable for home practice and recording.

 

Alongside providing capture-ready valve tones at any volume, the HT-5R MK III comes equipped with a direct USB-C output which can send 2 channels (left and right) to your DAW, ensuring the easiest way to capture authentic valve tone in recordings without the need for an interface.

The best part? These amps have in-built load protection, meaning you can use them without a cabinet connected for silent practice and recording.

 

The HT-5R MK III has 2 channels, clean and overdrive, each with 2 voicing options. With HT-5R MK III, each Voice switch introduces comprehensive circuit alterations in both the preamp and power amp to recreate authentic reference tones without compromise. This includes EQ voicing, tone stack position in the circuit, the gain, and power amp damping. Achieve diverse tonal options with the flick of a single switch!

 

CabRig™, our class-leading IR-based speaker simulator comes as standard in the HT-5R MK III, offering hundreds of different cabinet, mic, and room combinations. Save your favourites to three presets for easy access directly from the amplifier. Get premium valve tones into your headphones, monitors and mixes.
