Black Star amplifiers have quite rightly caused a major buzz in the music industry since their launch. This has been due partly to some very clever designs but more importantly to some very fine sounding amplifiers. In these valve and speaker upgrade kits we have put together some of our most popular upgrades in order for you to get the best sound out of these excellent amplifiers

This upgrade kit covers the Blackstar HT5C, HT5R and HT5 RC 1 x 12 combos and includes a Brimar 12BH7 valve in the output stage and a Harma Clear Sapphire speaker.

This was our most popular upgrade for the HT5 as it provides a smooth natural top end which has best balance of vintage clean sounds, with a modern warm overdrive with tight punchy lows. It is also a great pedal platform as both the valve and speaker handle saturation with excellent definition.
We have discontinued the speaker so only have a few

The Harma ECC83 Retro provides a harmonically rich and detailed sound with excellent 3D midrange warmth. This valve has a traditional British voiced sound that has a huge singing sustaining tone when overdriven. The outstanding feature of this valve is its smooth linear midrange response and extended frequency response so you get smooth warm overdrive with tight fat punchy lows.

The Brimar 12BH7 is an ideal choice as an output valve in the Blackstar. The valve has a rich musical and harmonic clarity which gives the amp a full and punchy clean tone. The valve has a deep and tight bass with a very warm and detailed mid band. The valve also responds very well under saturation and breaks up early give a full fat creamy overdriven sound. When either a clean boost or overdrive pedal are kicked in this valves breakup sound gets fatter the more you overdrive it.

Single coil notes are clear and warm with no hint of mush or fuzz. When overdriven, the Brimar tone gets fatter and has a nice warm midrange punch with plenty of bass depth. It has a dynamic creamy and crunchy overdriven tone.

This combination provides the classic British Rock sound which is tight and focused.

The kit consists of

1 Specially Selected Harma ECC83 Retro
1 Specially Selected Brimar 12BH7
1 Harma 12 inch Ceramic Clear Sapphire 50 16 Ohm speaker

Please note that the kit is for the valves and speaker only
