The power and tube tone to satisfy the needs of larger venues, housed in a 1x12 combo.
The Blackstar HT Soloist HT-60S is an ideal compact gigging amp for players who want the power to handle
larger venues but in a 1x12 combo format. The HT-60S Soloist from the Blackstar Venue series has 2 channels and 4 modes that
are augmented by an additional footswitchable solo boost. The solo boost will add up to 10dB of level boost and can be used
in conjunction with the Body switch for fat, singing leads.
The Blackstar combo amplifier's Clean Channel has 2 modes,
'boutique' and 'modern' and its own Tone control provides a wide range of clean tones. The Voice switch reconfigures both
the preamplifier voicing and gain structure, and the power amplifier damping, to reproduce either ringing Class A Performance
in the 'boutique' mode, or very clean and tight Class AB tones in the 'modern' setting.
The Overdrive Channel on the
Blackstar Venue tube amp has its own EQ section and a Voice switch that allows the character of the channel to be changed,
providing a wide variety of overdriven tones. The channel is characterized by a tone that's high in gain, but lacks any of
the detached top-end 'fizz' often found in similar designs. This is a result of the Blackstar HT-60S guitar amp's unique preamplifier
and power amplifier shaping techniques, which cleans up the overdrive beautifully as the guitar volume is reduced. Even at
the most extreme settings, the Blackstar amp's overdrive channel remains natural sounding. The ISF (Infinite Shape Feature)
control is unique to Blackstar Amplification and represents a major step forward in tone shaping flexibility.
ISF control shifts the response of the 3-control tone stack between a US-type response at one end, and at the other a UK-type
response. The Blackstar amplifier has an infinite number of alternative tone choices in between the 2 extremes that would
be otherwise unavailable.
The Blackstar HT Soloist 60 tube amp also features a completely natural sounding digital
reverb, which is outstandingly musical on both clean and crunch tones and raises the benchmark for guitar amplifier specific
reverb design. A Dark/Bright switch allows the overall reverb characteristics to be modified to suit different tastes and
