Authentic cleans and super high-gain overdrives are combined in this innovative, versatile, and portable
The HT Studio 20 combo from the Venue series is the big brother of Blackstar's critically acclaimed
HT-5, and offers huge versatility for home, rehearsal or studio use. Coupled with a cathode-biased EL34 power amp, the carefully
voiced preamp provides the user with the ability to create wonderfully lush tube tones through the 12" Celestion speaker.
Clean Channel on the Blackstar tube amp provides a wide range of clean and moderately overdriven tones. The voicing is typical
of many 'boutique' style amplifiers with a ringing Class A type performance. The overall character may be adjusted with the
Tone control from dark and warm through to bright and sparkling.
The HT Studio 20 Overdrive Channel is characterized
by a tone that's high in gain, but lacks any of the detached top-end 'fizz' often found in many similar designs. This is a
result of unique preamplifier and power amplifier shaping techniques. The overdrive cleans up beautifully as the guitar volume
is reduced, so even at the most extreme settings, the Overdrive Channel remains natural sounding.
The HT Studio 20
Overdrive Channel also has its own highly flexible EQ section providing a variety of overdriven tones. Blackstar's ISF (Infinite
Shape Feature) control represents a major step forward in tone-shaping flexibility. The ISF control shifts the response of
the three-control tone stack between a U.S.-type response at one end, and at the other a U.K.-type response. Between these
two extremes lies an infinite number of alternative tone choices that would be otherwise unavailable.
The HT Studio
20's two-channel design has been optimized for either preamp or power amp overdrive, or a combination of both. The carefully
voiced preamp and cathode-biased dual EL34 power amp configuration provides the user with the ability to create wonderfully
lush tube tones. From mild overdrive, that cleans up by backing off the guitar volume control, to highly saturated distortion,
this amp does it all.
The HT Studio 20 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.
