The designers and engineers at Blackstar are always looking to improve a great thing, and with the HT Club 40 MkII Black and Blue they have truly taken an already amazing amp to the next level. The Club 40 is powered by a classic Celestion Vintage 30 speaker and genuine RCA-style remakes of Blackplate 6L6 tubes. Whether you are playing blues, metal, or rock, the Club 40 MkII Black and Blue has the tone and versatility to fit your style.
This special edition of Blackstar's HT Club 40 Mk II Combo, the Black and Blue edition, gets its name from the pair of classic TAD vintage Blackplate RCA 6L6 tubes and the baby blue tolex which is complemented by a tan basketweave grille and cream-colored panel. This Club 40 will wow your audience both sonically and visually!
The amplifier features two channels, each with two voices. The Clean channel has controls for bass, treble and volume, while the Overdrive channel features a 3-band EQ alongside volume and gain controls. The first voice for the clean channel is ‘American Clean’ – voiced bright, and remains clean regardless of what dynamic playing you throw at it. The second voice is ‘British Clean,’ with a looser bass response, a warmer midrange and more sensitivity to dynamics.
The HT Club 40 MkII is the ideal gigging valve amp for club sized venues. The 40W EL34 driven power amplifier has groundbreaking clean punch and dynamics with expanded tone controls that will easily cut through in a full band situation. Switching to the ISF equipped overdrive channel accesses two further modes - 'classic crunch' and 'super saturated lead'. The Power Reduction feature allows further flexibility, by allowing the guitarist to attenuate to 10 percent of the 40 watts of power, also making the HT Club 40 MkII perfect for the home and studio use.
