Blackstart HT Club 40 MK II Venue Series Tube 1x12 Combo Amp


Versatile Tone and Boutique Looks Make This Valve Amp a Real Standout

With the HT Club 40 MKII Venue Series Tube Amp, Blackstar has come up with the perfect tone machine for club-sized venues. The Blackstar HT Club 40 features a new clean channel that offers true boutique amp tone with plenty of headroom, along with an overdrive channel that can deliver the high gain scream of an American tube style amp, as well as the punchy crunch tones of a classic British Tube amp, all in a handsome boutique amp package that will really stand out on stage.

Equipped with a 40W power section driven by 2 EL34 valves, and 2 ECC83 tubes in the preamp section, the HT Club 40 features two distinct, footswitchable channels. The new clean channel delivers groundbreaking and punchy clean tones with dynamics and tone controls that have been expanded to allow you to cut through the mix in live situations. Studio quality reverb and an effects loop give you all of the versatility you need to get the perfect sound combinations for your music.

The overdrive channel, equipped with Blackstar’s amazing ISF control allows you to dial in the exact type of tube sound you are looking for, from American high gain to classic British crunch, and any combination of these tones that you like.

The amazing Power Reduction feature uses an attenuator to attenuate 40 watts of power down to 4 watts (10%) to really drive the valves, easily providing all of the crunch and super saturated lead tones you will ever need from your amp. The power reduction features also allows you to drive the valves and get the kind of face-melting tube scream that you want from a tube amp even at low volume, making this Blackstar perfect for recording and rehearsing as well.

This innovative 40 Watt valve combo amp also features digital Reverb with a special light/Dark switch, an effects loop with a level switch, speaker emulated output with 1x12/4x12 voicing, and USB connectivity for digital recording, making this a very versatile valve combo ideal for just about any situation.
