Frequently Bought Together


Manufacturer's ID: BA119002-H

After more than 3 years of intensive R&D and market research, Blackstar are proud to release the stunning next generation of HT Venue valve amplifiers. HT Venue MkII takes this award-winning line and elevates it to a new level of sonic performance, whilst adding every major enhancement that guitarists have requested; resulting in a massively flexible feature set that is still intuitive and musician-friendly.

Specification

The mission was “simple”: improve on the sonic references of the best vintage and new valve amps on the planet, in the way Blackstar is renowned for and combine the sounds into a cohesive, creative product.

  • Ground-breaking new clean channel
  • Richer, responsive Overdrives
  • All modes are now footswitchable
  • Power Reduction to turn down to 10% of the amp’s rated power
  • Professional USB recording output
  • Professional features including, footswitchable boost on all channels, XLR recording DI output and a newly designed in-house studio quality reverb
  • Compact and portable

Equipped with 2 channels and 4 footswitchable voices the HT Club 40 MkII is the ideal gigging valve amp for club sized venues. The 40W EL34 driven power amplifier has groundbreaking clean punch and dynamics with expanded tone controls that will easily cut through in a full band situation. Switching to the amazing ISF equipped overdrive channel accesses a further two modes - 'classic crunch' and 'super saturated lead'. The Power Reduction feature allows further flexibility, by allowing the guitarist to attenuate to 10 percent of the 40 watts of power, also making the HT Club 40 MkII perfect for the home and studio use.

MORE REFINED CLEANS

The ground-breaking clean channel has two voices and offers the ultimate in clean tone quality and flexibility. One voice is based on a classic American circuit and the second channel is based on a classic British tone. The Voice switch reconfigures the preamp voicing, EQ and valve gain structure, as well as the power amplifier damping. This produces a clean, bright and tight but solid bass response for the American tone and a highly responsive ‘chime’ with looser bottom for the British tone that can be pushed into a midrange overdrive when driven hard. All Clean Channels now include Bass, Treble and a Voice switch.

MORE OVERDRIVE

Boasting two richer, fuller and responsive voices on the Overdrives channels, the high gain Voices are tight and focused, drawing on the original award-winning HT Venue Series. These two voices provide a broad palette of overdriven tones. When switching between channels, the amplifier will recall the specific Voice setting last used on that channel. The Overdrive voices are characterised by a tone which is high in gain, but avoids any of the detached top-end ‘fizz’ often found in other designs. This is a result of unique preamplifier and power amplifier shaping techniques, which also benefit the player in the way the overdrives clean up beautifully as the guitar volume is reduced. Even at the most extreme settings, the Overdrive voices remain natural sounding.

MORE FLEXIBILITY

All modes are footswitchable, resulting in the widest possible selection of stage accessible valve tones and footswitchable boost on all channels. The supplied 2-way footswitch enables the selection of the Clean and Overdrive channels, and the two voices on each Channel.

The optional 5-way footcontroller enables instant access to all channels and voices, plus the global boost function and Reverb switching for maximum control.

MORE CONTROL

A switchable power reduction circuit has been included with the HT Venue MkII models giving reliable, transparent attenuation down to 10 percent of the amp’s rated power. This means that the full tonal depth of the EL34 power stage can be enjoyed at any volume, retaining the distinctive sound of power valves working hard, making the HT Venue MkII perfect for any live or recording situation.

MORE PRO RECORDING OPTIONS

HT Venue Series Recording - The simplest way to get valve tone into your recordings. The flexibility of adding a USB connector allows for sending up to 4 channels of the guitar signal, dry, preamp out and stereo emulated out into a computer for recording purposes. Two further outputs on the rear, a stereo jack socket and balanced XLR, also allow the speaker emulated signals to be connected to external devices for practicing, recording or live use.

MORE PRO FEATURES

The patented ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) control is unique to Blackstar Amplification and represents a major step forward in tone shaping flexibility. The ISF control shifts the response of the three control tone stack between, a US type response at one end, and at the other, a UK type response. Importantly, in between the two extremes lie an infinite number of alternative tone choices that would be otherwise unavailable.

The amplifier features naturally sounding digital reverb that can be adjusted via the Reverb control on the front panel or turned on and off via the optional 5-way footcontroller. A switch on the rear panel selects between ‘Dark’ and ‘Light’. The Dark setting is based on a room reverb and the Light setting is based on a plate reverb.

MORE COMPACT AND PORTABLE

All the HT Venue MkII products have been reengineered to make them more practical and portable.

Overall Rating 4.5 (2 reviews)

Not gigged nor rehearsed with it just yet - so far, but hoping to upgrade the rating

From technical advice before buying to the ordering process, click & collect & even to the fact that the Guitar Guitar guy carried the amp out to the car for me (my roadie days are over!) the service was exceptional.
