However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Blackstar's patented ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) circuit, gives players an infinite amount of adjustment over the characteristics of the tone control network and takes you from classic British heavy metal to modern US scooped high gain and anywhere in between. Add a fully specified speaker emulated output, MP3/Line input, plus a 4-16Ω speaker output and you have everything you need for recording or practicing.

    1 Watt, 1 x ECC83, 1 x ECC82

    An innovative 1 Watt, 2 channel valve combo that uses 1 x ECC83 and 1 x ECC82 valves. The HT METAL 1 is the perfect studio and practice metal amp. In making the HT METAL 1 ideally suited to home and studio use, the aim was to develop a valve amp which sounded full and toneful even at the lowest volume level.

    ISF Control - Everything from scooped US to UK heavy metal

    The ISF control gives you access to infinite new sound possibilities on the HT METAL 1. 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.

    Two Channels - Clean or Metal

    The HT METAL 1 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 metal lead tone.

    Speaker Emulated Output - Metal amp tones straight to disk

    The HT METAL 1 has a fully-specified speaker emulated output which further enhances its studio credentials and allows any guitarist to get amazing metal tones straight to tape or disk, or through headphones.

    Unique Push-Pull Power Amp Design - Produces crunch and breakup

    The HT METAL 1 power amplifier is a low powered push-pull design which produces the crunch and break-up characteristics of a traditional 100W output stage but at a much lower volume. This is achieved by the use of an ECC82 dual triode in push-pull configuration producing 1 Watt output, which is rich in valve harmonics and compression, sounding full and toneful even at the lowest volume level.

    8" Speaker - Small but punchy

    Featuring an 8" speaker, the HT METAL 1 really is a perfect combo amp for home or studio use. This amp sounds full and toneful even at the lowest volume level.

    Stereo MP3 / Line Input - Jam to your favourite track

    A stereo MP3/Line input has been added to the HT METAL 1 allowing you to play a backing track or similar through the amp while practising / recording.

    External Speaker Output - Hook up a speaker cabinet

    A 4-16Ω speaker output that allows you to run the amp into an external speaker cabinet of your choice, making the HT METAL 1 a very practical choice.

    Stereo Reverb - Add in some reverb

    The HT METAL 1's Reverb control sets the overall level of the reverb effect. Carefully voiced to sound great on both the Clean and Overdrive channel, it's perfect for adding a sense of space and 'size'.
