Northampton’s finest has overhauled its best-selling range for 2019. Here, our attention turns to a 20-watt combo with a low-power mode that will hit the sweet spot for many players…

Replacing Blackstar’s HT Studio 20, this 1x12 combo carries a handful of features over from its predecessor – then adds quite a few more in the shape of footswitchable alternative voicings for each channel, emulated USB, headphone and XLR outputs, plus a switchable power output to facilitate driving the twin-EL84 power section hard at sociable volumes. Along with its facelifted retro-British styling, the control panel has been relocated to the top of the cabinet for easier access when reaching down to tweak settings from a standing position, as many users certainly will. From left to right, there’s a single quarter-inch jack input, then the clean channel’s volume control. Then we find the clean channel’s two-position voice switch, for selecting the basic character of the tonestack – more on this later. A single tone control allows for fine tuning of the selected voicing.
