Black Star amplifiers have quite rightly caused a major buzz in the music industry since their launch. This has been due partly to some very clever designs but more importantly to some very fine sounding amplifiers. In these valve and speaker upgrade kits we have put together some of our most popular upgrades in order for you to get the best sound out of these excellent amplifiers

This Classic Philips 12BH7A upgrade kit covers the Black Star HT5C, HT5R and HT5-RC 1 x 12 combos and includes a Harma Blue Ruby Speaker. It is designed to provide superb vintage Greenback era tone with more bite so a vintage speaker with a modern edge.

The Harma ECC83 Retro provides a harmonically rich and detailed sound with excellent 3D midrange warmth. This valve has a traditional British voiced sound that has a huge singing sustaining tone when overdriven. The outstanding feature of this valve is its smooth linear midrange response and extended frequency response so you get smooth warm overdrive with tight fat punchy lows.

The Philips 12BH7A is an ideal choice as an output valve in the Black Star. The valve has a rich musical and harmonic clarity which gives the amp a full and punchy clean tone. The valve has a deep and tight bass with a very warm and detailed mid band. It sounds great with pedals or clean boost units as this valves sound gets fatter the more you overdrive it. When the valve is pushed it produces a dynamic crunchy overdriven with a full fat creamy overdriven sound. This is the best new old stock valve I have found for this purpose

The Harma G12 Blue Ruby 50H 12 inch guitar speaker delivers a tight fast attack with warm upper mids and a crunchy early breakup of the Original vintage speakers from the late 1960ís The top end is clear with plenty of detail and provides a creamy and crunchy sound when overdriven. The speaker provides more top end presence with forward upper- mids that makes this a classic sounding Blues Rock speaker that can cater for a modern sound.

The kit consists of
1 Specially Selected Harma ECC83 Retro
1 Specially Selected Philips 12BH7A
1 Harma 12 inch Ceramic Blue Ruby 50 watt 16 Ohm speaker

Please note that the kit is for the valves and speaker only.
