Blackstar HT Stage 60 212 MkII
The HT Stage 60 212 MkII guitar amp's selected duet of EL34s deliver 60W of glorious valve power through two high quality Celestion speakers, making for a combo that will deliver every night, even in the most testing live environment. The 'boutique' style clean channel is extremely versatile with two modes - 'British Class-A' and 'dynamic US'. Each of the two ISF equipped overdrive channels allows a further two modes. The Power Reduction feature allows further flexibility, by allowing the guitarist to attenuate to 10 percent of the 60 watts of power also making the HT Stage 60 MkII perfect for the home and studio use.
More Refined Cleans
The ground-breaking clean channel has two voices and offers the ultimate in clean tone quality and flexibility. One voice is based on a classic American circuit and the second channel is based on a classic British tone. The Voice switch reconfigures the preamp voicing, EQ and valve gain structure, as well as the power amplifier damping. This produces a clean, bright and tight but solid bass response for the American tone and a highly responsive ‘chime’ with a looser bottom for the British tone that can be pushed into a midrange overdrive when driven hard. All Clean channels now include Bass, Treble and a Voice switch.
More Responsive Overdrives
Boasting two richer, fuller and responsive voices on the Overdrive channels, the high gain voices are tight and focused, drawing on the original award-winning HT Venue Series. These two voices provide a broad palette of overdriven tones. When switching between channels, the amplifier will recall the specific Voice setting last used on that channel. The Overdrive voices are characterised by a tone which is high in gain, but avoids any of the detached top-end ‘fizz’ often found in other designs. This is a result of unique preamplifier and power amplifier shaping techniques, which also benefit the player in the way the overdrives clean up beautifully as the guitar volume is reduced. Even at the most extreme settings, the Overdrive voices remain natural sounding.
A switchable power reduction circuit has been included with the HT Venue MkII models giving reliable, transparent attenuation down to 10 percent of the amp’s rated power. This means that the full tonal depth of the EL34 power stage can be enjoyed at any volume, retaining the distinctive sound of power valves working hard, making the HT Venue MkII perfect for any live or recording situation.
