Valves for Blackstar HT-20R MKII

The Blackstar HT-20R MKII amplifier, both the combo version and the head, use the following valves:

  • 2 x ECC83 (also called 12AX7) preamp valves.
  • 2 x EL84 matched power valves/power tubes.

The HT20R MKII is cathode biased so you do not have to bias the amp when you change your power valves.

Over time your valves will lose their tone and their power. A brand new set of valves will get your amp sounding like new again.

We always recommend Sovtek or JJ valves for this amplifier. This is because they guarantee you get awesome tone and long life and they don’t cost a fortune.

Remember, there are only five manufacturers of valves in the world. So don’t pay higher prices for valves from the same factory that have simply been rebranded by other companies.

About the amp.

This amp replaced the original HT20 and production began in 2019.

With two EL84 power valves and two ECC83 (12AX7) valves in the preamp stage, the HT-20R MKII gives you a tight sound with gorgeous chime-like quality. Often found on lower wattage amps and heads, the EL84 valve has plenty of gritty tones and responds well in high gain scenarios.

Valve amp owners know well that you have to crank the valves to get the full tonal spectrum from your amplifier but that’s not the case with the HT-20RH.

Featuring a power output reduction button you can use 10% of the power whilst keeping all of that glorious valve tone. So that’s perfect if you want to practice at home without deafening the neighbours.
