An alternate to the HT Club 40

The HT Club 50 offers the same feature set as the HT Club 40 combo in a versatile head format. This two channel head is equally at home in the rehearsal room, studio or club size venue.

The patented ISF control works with the Bass, Middle and Treble controls to give you access to infinite new sound possibilities from the USA to the UK and everywhere in-between. This fully interactive control allows you to infinitely adjust the response of the tone control network between any of the traditional voicings. In this way you can design your own sound and truly find the sound in your head.

The HT Club 50 has two channels available for selection, a Clean channel and an Overdrive channel. Using the Gain control while on the Clean channel you are able to deliver everything from a clean sound through to a crunch tone. Alternatively you can select the Overdrive channel and again using the Gain control, change from a clean sound on the edge of breakup right through to a distorted lead tone.

The HT Club 50's Reverb control sets the overall level of the reverb effect. With the control fully counter clockwise there will be no reverb. Turning the control clockwise will increase the amount of reverb.

The Tone control allows adjustment of the balance between treble and bass frequencies within the sound. At low settings (counter clockwise) the sound will be warmer and darker in character. As the Tone control is rotated clockwise the sound will become brighter.

The HT Club 50 has a fully specified speaker emulated output which further enhances the studio credentials and allows any guitarist to get amazing valve tone straight to tape or disk.

The amp features an effects loop to allow you to connect effects pedals or other professional equipment using the return and send connections. The Effects Loop Level switch sets the effects loop to either +4dBV/-10dBV, which enables you to use it with either professional equipment (+4dBV setting), or with guitar level effects such as effects pedals (-10dBV setting).

In the out position the Clean Channel has a 'boutique' voicing, more focussed to middle and top end, with the power amplifier damping configured like many traditional Class A type amplifiers. This mode can produce pleasing levels of crunchy overdrive at higher settings of the Clean Volume control. With the switch in the in position the Clean Channel has a more 'modern' voicing, with a greater bass response and tighter sound from increased Class AB style power amplifier damping. The gain structure is also altered to keep the sound clean at higher settings of the Clean Volume control.

With the Voice switch in the out position, the Overdrive Channel has a 'classic' overdrive voicing, tight and crunchy. When the switch is in, more mid-band gain is applied to give the overdrive sound more 'body' and a smoother overdrive characteristic, while power amp feedback is reduced to give a livelier, looser response.
