Loaded With a 12″ 50W Speaker
With a 12″ speaker on board, the HT Metal 5 offers both projection and tone shaping in one simple unit. The custom voiced Blackbird Speaker has 50W of output to amplify your fierce metal tones, and the HT Metal 5 also features Speaker Emulated Output which allows pro direct recording with the ability to run a line out to a PA.
Choose Between Two Channels
The Blackstar HT Metal 5 is loaded with a whole range of features that allow precise tonal shaping, so that you can find your ideal heavy metal sound. There are two channels on-board that can be selected via the footswitches; these include Clean or Overdrive. The Clean channel can be sculpted via the Volume control for increased output and the Tone knob lets you choose between a warm, dark tone or light and bright. The Overdrive Channel can be adjusted using the Gain control for a full, distorted and crunchy sound, whilst the Volume increases the projection.
No Blackstar amp would be complete without the patented ISF control. This easy-to-use function enables players to achieve the choice of two iconic tones at the turn of a dial. When turned counter clockwise, the amp delivers a classic American characteristic, with a tight bottom end. When turned clockwise, the amp delivers a classic British tone with a woody texture. ISF is perfect for players who like a variety of tones and styles, and ideal for cover bands who might feature both tones.
