Summer NAMM 2019 Video: Daniel Donato plays the Blackstar HT Club 40 Kentucky Special

The Nashville native shows off the Northamptonshire company’s American-inspired new combo

Blackstar Amplification got off to a flyer at Summer NAMM 2019 with the reveal of their American-inspired tube combo, the HT Club 40 MkII Kentucky Special.

Unusually for a Blackstar, this amp is paired with two 6L6 valves for pristine cleans, alongside a 12″ Eminence Screamin’ Eagle, built in Kentucky, USA.

The amp also features built-in attenuation, giving you the ability to switch from 40W to 4W, giving you manageable bedroom tones in an instant. With two footswitchable channels and four footswitchable voices, this amplifier is also a great pedal platform for any of you stompbox aficionados.
