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.

Product Review

I had always wanted a Blackstar amp after playing in a band with someone who had one years ago. I'm so happy I finally got one! The 2 channels and 2 voices along with the ISF control give you so many sound possibilities. The 4W switch makes it a lot easier to play in my bedroom late at night without disturbing anyone. I used it once to practice with a fairly loud band on the 40W setting and it definitely held up with room to spare. Not bad for a single 12" speaker! I've used the USB portion to record a little bit and it sounds pretty great. I also love how it gives you 4 tracks, definitely gives you a lot to work with. If you're thinking about getting this amp, I say do it!

Great Overdrive Channels!

Product Review

Loving the overdrive Channels, The clean channel is acceptable, Not as great as a fender but workable. The overall build quality is not as nice as a Mesa or even Fender but as far as sound quality I am very pleased so far, I love the ability to change the output from 40 watts to 4 watts and it takes my pedals very well! Great amp.

Best tone for the price!

I mainly just use the modern overdrive voicing, and the tone is amazing! Clean tones sound really smooth as well! All the power you need for most gigs.

Great amp!

Product Review

Only complaint is the cleans are pretty bland but the amp handles pedals so well that can be fixed right up. The drive tones are to die for! Can’t beat it for $$$ to size ratio.
