The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

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.

Equipped with Digital Reverb

The HT5R Bronco features a Blackstar custom voiced 12 inch 50W speaker, that offers a powerful projection ideal for practicing and also gigging. The combo is equipped with digital reverb for added texture. The 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. An ideal tool for adding a bit more character to your tone.

ISF Control

The ISF control works in conjunction with the Tone control. It allows you to choose the exact tone signature you prefer. Achieve a more American characteristic with a tight bottom end and more aggressive middle, and to the other extreme you can also achieve a British characteristic which is more ‘woody’ and less aggressive.

Footswitch Channels

As well as ISF control, the HT5R Bronco is also equipped with two footswitchable channels including a clean channel, and an overdrive channel, that can be controlled via the footswitch. Using the Volume 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.

Unique Design

One of the most striking features about the Blackstar HT5R is its unique design. Featuring a limited edition tan ‘Bronco’ covering with reinforced metals corners, this combo amp will stand out on any stage. Equipped with a comfortable leather handle for portable use, this amp is the perfect accessory for any level of guitarist. Blackstar's superb quality ensure that you are investing in a premium product that is both reliable and stylish.
