When enhancing the tonal quality, Blackstar’s engineering team started by benchmarking the finest vintage and new valve amps on the planet (including our own), some of which cost five times the price of HT Venue. The mission was then simple: improve on these sonic references in the way Blackstar is renowned for, and combine the sounds into a cohesive, creative product.

With that in mind, players can expect a number of enhancements from Blackstar’s new HT Venue MkII amplifiers. For starters, the clean channel now features market leading clean tones, through huge improvements in both the pure quality and the flexibility, made possible by the addition of controls for bass, treble and a footswitchable Voice switch. These improvements are sure to rank HT Venue MkII among the best of the clean valve amps.

In addition to the clean channel enhancements, players can expect richer, more complex overdrive tones from the drive channel(s) in HT Venue MkII. The drive channels are fuller and even more responsive than the original Venue series, and each overdrive channel features its own Voice switch. The high gain voices are tight and focused, drawing on the original award-winning HT Venue Series, while the mid-gain tones are perfect for those players who prefer edge of breakup tones, and then either push the amp with pedals or clean up the tones with the guitar’s volume knob.

In keeping with the Venue series’ player-centric design philosophy, all modes are footswitchable, resulting in the widest possible selection of stage-accessible valve tones. In addition, a switchable power reduction circuit is included, giving reliable, transparent attenuation down to 10% of the amp’s rated power. It’s perfect for those playing environments where volume limitations prevent other valve amps from getting to their sweet spot. For players who are doing recording sessions, the Venue MkII also includes a professional USB recording output, which is the simplest way to record authentic valve tone.

Other pro features on all Venue MkII models include a footswitchable boost on all channels, direct output with built-in speaker cabinet emulation and a studio quality reverb, newly designed in-house by the engineers at Blackstar. Lastly, all of the Venue MkII models have been reengineered physically to be more compact, lightweight, practical and portable.

Blackstar’s Venue series’ were built to outfit the widest range of players from all music genres with the best in all-valve, versatile, high-quality amplification. The Venue MkII continues with that philosophy, and makes a great amp even better.

What is your opinion of this product?
Love this amp in my home studio. Versatile amp that achieves both American/British tones without any struggle. No need for multiple amps with the ISF knob and voice switches that allow me to change the character of the amp. This thing is LOUD so the 4W power reduction mode is awesome for private practice without bothering anyone. Plenty of headroom and no trouble keeping up with our band live. These are high quality and high value amps at a comfortable price point for a tube amp.

Great amp for the money
What is your opinion of this product?
I have the original club 40 and it is an awesome amp. Has exactly the distortion I was looking for. I saw the upgrades on the mk2 and thought I would get another for studio work. The only thing I don't like is it seems the cab is a little smaller and doesnt quite have the bottom end as the original but I don't think you can beat this amp for the sound and features.

BLACKSTAR ROCKS !!!! BUY IT !!!
What is your opinion of this product?
Blackstar is THE BEST amp I've ever played. I'm 61 and have played every amp you can think of. I play Classic Rock and need all those tomes from the 60's, 70's & 80's. I have 3 Blackstar's now and had the 60W combo too. I've played outside here in Florida for 3 years and NEVER an issue. The NEW Mark II is AWESOME. Pay the money for the 5 button foot pedal and you'll save on boosters and OD Pedals.(I had them with the first versions) CLEAN Vox type/Fender Type Cleans and you can dial in a Plexi Marshall or Boogie in a few seconds. The NEW Features of XLR, 4 watt practice volume and 5 button foot switch makes this THE Best Blackstar they have made yet. Also very well built and never an issue in over 4 years of playing their amps. This is THE BEST amp on the market and a GREAT Price with AMS. BUY IT you won't be disappointed.

Killer amp
What is your opinion of this product?
Love this amp. I was looking for a tube amp with separate EQ for clean and OD channels. Looked at some other brands and stumbled on to the Blackstar. Sounds awesome and has tons of features you would expect from an amp three times the price.
