    Default Anyone here have a Blackstar HT1?

    Anyone here have a Blackstar HT1? I know a few guys with HT5s and I'm just curious as to weather or not it's worth the extra bucks to go with an HT5 for a knockaround amp.....

    I thought that was what Jolly had, but I could be wrong.

    EDIT: nope, he's got a pair of HT-5's

    I'd say grab it up. I hear nothing but good things about them.

    Check page 5 for my thoughts on the ht1.
    I'm an internet person. All we do is waste time evaluating things that have next-to-zero real world significance.

    Tried one. Went with a Fender Mustang I instead.

    It sounded fine clean, but the high gain mode sounded terrible. No definition or clarity at all. It reminded me of the "Supersat" mode on my Peavey Rage 108.

    Tried the combo through a Dean 4x12. Monstrous!
    No headroom at all, but the tone was just brutal.

    Lots of junk by Zvex, Keeley, EHX, Boss and Mooer pedals.

    The HT-1 is a fun little amp. Loved the one I reviewed. Sounds best through a 12" speaker, but the little 8" is ok.
