Blackstar HT-20R MKII Head

$729.99

From chiming ‘boutique’ cleans, to on the edge crunch, or full-on distortion, HT-20 MkII deliver ‘the sound in your head’

EL84s are at the tonal heart of the HT-20R MkII combo and head. We have used our decades of valve amp design experience to combine the response and character of this classic British valve with a carefully voiced preamp to create wonderfully lush valve tones. From pure boutique cleans, to mild overdrive that cleans up by backing off the guitar volume control, right up to saturated distortion, this amp does it all.

For at home or in the studio the Power Reduction switch takes you down to 2 Watts without any compromise in tone: perfect for driving the EL84 power stage.

Simple and intuitive controls, combined with pro features like our patented ISF control, studio quality reverb, effects loop, XLR D.I. out and USB speaker emulated output, make them perfect for any performance situation – whether you’re in the studio, gigging in front of a small crowd, or playing to thousands.

 

From chiming ‘boutique’ cleans, to on the edge crunch, or full-on distortion, HT-20 MkII deliver ‘the sound in your head’

The HT-20R MkII has two footswitchable Clean Voices, one with an “American” character and the other with a Class A “British” sound.

Voice 1: Voice 1 clean gives a bright and tight tone with a solid bass response, the tone shaping is positioned early in the gain structure for a refined American tone and response.

Voice 2: Voice 2 gives a highly responsive “chime” with a looser, resonant bottom-end for a British tone that can be pushed into a mid-range overdrive when driven hard.

 

The two footswitchable 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.

Voice 1: This is the Classic “British” Blackstar overdrive. Rich and natural it goes all the way to Super Crunch gain but cleans up beautifully

Voice 2: Inspired by the critically acclaimed HT Venue MkII high gain sounds, this overdrive has additional aggression in the high-end with a tight resonant low-end.

 

The conventional three way guitar EQ network, or tone stack (a.k.a. Bass, Middle and Treble), is a key to the characteristic “voice” of traditional guitar amplifiers. Classic amplifier designs have their own versions of this network which leads to their own tonal voicings.

The ISF control allows you to infinitely adjust the response of the tone control network between any of the traditional voicings in a way that has never before been possible. In this way you can design your own sound and truly find ‘the sound in your head’.

We like to keep things simple, so Faders Music Inc. offers Free Canada-Wide Shipping for almost all orders over $99 (before tax). We use Canada Post, UPS, Purolator, Canpar or Fedex for shipments within Canada and the USA.

Local customers may choose to pickup their order at the store free of charge during the checkout process (click & collect). Free local delivery to Brandon, MB addresses is also available for orders over $25. 

Here's the thing... some larger/heavier items may be subject to shipping charges. Canada is a big place and shipping companies now calculate their rates using "dimensional weight" meaning larger items are very expensive to ship - even if they don't weigh very much (i.e. an empty guitar case). 

We want to be completely transparent with our shipping policy, so here is a list of items that we have to charge some shipping on. (these fees usually work out to about 25%-50% of what we actually pay).

Faders Subsidized Flat Shipping Rates (within Canada)

  • Casio 61-76 Note Keyboards : $30 + tax
  • 88 Note Pianos : $70 + tax
  • Electronic Drumsets : $40 + tax
  • Empty Guitar Case (hardshell) : $30 + tax
  • Guitars < $350 Value : $30 + tax
  • Amps 25+ watt : $40 + tax
  • Guitar & Bass Bundles : $40 + tax

If you make a purchase from one of the listed categories and choose Free Canada-Wide Shipping, we will email you a secure link to pay the shipping charge after you've made your purchase. It's super fast and super easy. 

Note: If you purchase $99+ worth of additional products on the same order as one of the items in the above list then your entire order will qualify for Free Shipping. (*not including guitar & bass bundles)
Example: You purchase a hardshell acoustic case + 5 sets of strings, a leather strap & a Beatles record (additional items = $99+) then your entire order will ship for free. 

Some remote or rural locations may be subject to additional shipping charges. If your delivery address is a PO Box then these fees will apply (Canada Post charges ridiculous oversize shipping fees).

If you have any questions, please send us an email info@faders.ca or reach out to us on social media @fadersmusic


A brief note about shipping & delivery estimates:

When you place an order with Faders, we always ship within 1 business day (same day whenever possible). In short.. we inspect, pack and get it out the door as fast as humanly possible. Place your order on a Monday - it leaves Tuesday at the latest, place your order Friday at 7:30pm CST - it leaves Monday morning etc.

Once your order has left the store it is in the hands of the delivery company. Shipping estimates shown in our checkout process are estimates provided to us from the shipping companies - they are not guaranteed delivery dates as there are many factors which can impact actual delivery times such as: seasonal shipping volumes, extreme weather, staffing/technical/mechanical issues, delivery location  and global pandemics (occasionally).

A huge part of what makes Faders, Faders.. is our music school. We have 12 instructors on staff that teach all ages and skill levels in guitar, piano, drums and voice. Over the years we have taught hundreds & hundreds of students the joy of learning a musical instrument. Some of our former students have even become teachers at the store!

A few years back we thought it would be cool to add new and used vinyl records to the store. It's been a huge hit! We also recently started bringing in rock band T-Shirts & other "lifestyle" type stuff.

Our goal has always been to be a comfortable place for music lovers to hangout, shop and/or learn how to play.
