    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.

    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.
