Description & Specs

Blackstar’s HT Venue line is famous for class-leading clean and overdrive tones, all in a single gig and studio friendly unit. In 2023 we are proud to introduce the next generation of HT Venue valve amplifiers to inspire your performance. HT Venue MK III elevates this range to new heights with a stunning new style that looks as good as any premium boutique amplifier. The new panel has a clean, crisp aesthetic and cornerless covering, combined with classic chickenhead knobs and a new paper fret to complete the look.
There’s beauty in the details, where we’ve introduced high quality mini toggle switches, updated the LED colours and swapped out the plastic logo for a new metal plate version. CabRig, our world-class DSP speaker simulation comes as standard, which allows guitarists to choose between 100s of different cabinet, mic, mic placement and room settings. These settings can be saved and stored into 3 presets which can be recalled directly from the amplifier. Simply put, there is not a better looking, or sounding, amplifier in this category.

Here’s what more you can expect from the new HT Venue MK III:

  • Ground-breaking new clean channel offering the ultimate in clean tone quality and flexibility: All Clean Channels have Bass, Treble and a Voice switch.
  • Rich, responsive Overdrives each with its own Voice switch. The high gain Voices are tight and focused. 
  • All modes footswitchable with the optional 5-way FS-14 Foot controller: Resulting in the widest possible selection of stage accessible valve tones.
  • Power Reduction: A switchable power reduction circuit is included giving reliable, transparent attenuation down to 10% of the amp’s rated power.
  • Blackstar’s patented ISF on the OD channel(s). ISF stands for ‘Infinite Shape Feature’. Unique to Blackstar products, this control can take you from a more ‘American’ sounding amp all the way through to a classic ‘British’ amplifier and anywhere in between.

HT Venue MKIII

  • 2 distinct voices on every channel with independent EQ controls. Clean Voice 1 is an American style clean. Clean voice 2 is a ‘Class A’ British tone. On each of the OD channels, switching to voice 2 will add more gain and overall change the overdrive from a classic drive to a higher gain, more contemporary tone.
  • CabRig – our class-leading speaker simulation DSP software. Choose from 100s of microphone and cabinet combinations within our free software and store 3 CabRig presets directly into your amplifier.
  • Professional USB recording output: Now updated to USB-C, this is the simplest way to get valve tone into your recordings.
  • ‘HT’ stands for High Tension meaning the high voltage internal circuits needed to push valves to their full tonal potential.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days.
