What is your opinion of this product?
I love this amp. Sounds amazing in the studio and plenty loud live. Don’t let the 5w fool you. This amp does it all.

Lots of headroom
What is your opinion of this product?
Lots of headroom, the drive channel is pure metal yet if you play with that a bit you could easily get some creamy Marshall tones

Great and with a vintage marshall tone.
What is your opinion of this product?
Sounds amazing for the price. Connect a real vintage tube screamer and this will destroy amps 4 X the price. The fit and finish is a bit cheap like most Asian made amps. We will see how it holds up under nightly use.

Nice amp
This amp seems to be made well. I found no loose screws or poor glue seams in the tolex. Seems like a nice solid box.
Only had it a week so far, no problems.
Your general opinion of this product.
I wanted this amp for an at home practice amp, maybe some recording. It does this well. The clean channel sounds great, even the digital reverbe sounds good to me. The overdrive channel is good, but it seems that amp builders now think that the overdrive channel has to have super high gain to be cool. This amp has plenty of gain, but you can still dial it back to get a good blues tone. So far I like it better with a humbucker guitar, but it sounds good with single coils too, you just need to play with the EQ. All in all, it's a cool amp. Glad I bought it.

Absolutely the BEST amp I have EVER owned!!!
A-! quality. You couldn't buy a more well made (built like a tank) amp at any price. If your looking for an amp go no further BUY THIS you will NEVER regret it
The tone in my head I have been searching for all my life...Their advertising is TRUE this IS the TONE IN YOUR HEAD. I've had blues Jr's Jet City Blackheart and while I still own most of these this is by far the finest amp I have ever owned
As I said BuiLt like a Tank-Brand new but I have no worries.
Your general opinion of this product.
Build Quality is superb. Looks are awesome easy to understand layout. Every thing is well explained
Easy to understand instructions.. great layout..Footswitch included (How often does that Happen)
As I said The Tone in your Head is not just an add or Hype...It's true...This amp can do anything and the best I own....Decided to Keep the Jet City and the Blackheart but selling the Blues Jr. This amp gives you everything a Fender Blues Jr can and SO much more
One Fine Looking Amp! Proud to own it

Amazing "little" amp!
It has a sturdy combo cab with strong carry handle. The covering is very well done, the grill looks good, and is snug. Everything feels solid, nothing is loose or feels out of place. The top and back panels are easy to understand and use all the features packed into it.
It sounds like what you want it to. It has an extreme amount of versatility. Blackstar made versatility a high priority since the company founders left Marshall a few years ago because they felt constrained within Marshalls design rules. Blackstars are capable of tremendous gain, but they are also great at attaining great cleans or vintage drive sounds. The ISF knob is the claim to fame for Blackstar. The new HT-5 amps have the tone knob on the clean channel, this amp has the digi reverb and it is very useable.
The original HT-5 was an extremely reliable amp, this is the same with a few minor tweaks.
Your general opinion of this product.
This amp is amazing. Period.
Feels like 25 or so lbs.
See above: sound.
Blackstar amps look good. Period. HT, Artisan, Series 1, they all look good.

Awesome Amp
Overall high build quality and sturdy cab design. Front and back control panels as well as the grill cover are put together very well and the amp feels very solid. The carry handle is good.
The best feature of the amp is the sound. That's what you want out of an amp! The addition of the tone knob to the clean channel is a great feature and the reverb sounds good and is very usable. Blackstar ISF is a very good idea and really gives you the ability to change the tone in many ways. Blackstar is all about versatility and high sound quality.
No problems yet. The HT-5 was already a highly reliable amplifier. They modified the HT-5 slightly to get this amp and the HT-5R is not going to be any less reliable.
Your general opinion of this product.
This is a fantastic 5w combo. It is extremely versatile and sounds fantastic.
Feels like 25 lbs of greatness.
See above "sound."
These amps look amazing. From the HT-1 to the Series One and Artisan amps, Blackstar really hit the nail on the head for cosmetics.

Great Amp
Seems very well made. Controls are somewhat protected but still easy to get to.
Tone is great. I like to play David Gilmour solos and the lows soud really good for an amp in this price range.
I have only had it for a few weeks so I can't say yet.
Your general opinion of this product.
Great amp for the money. Haven't hooked it up to my 4x12 yet but the speaker in the cabinet exceeded my expectations.
Classic tube tone. Great value.
Very good. Nothing fancy which is fine with me.
Good. A little tight at first but already sounding broken in.
