DBZ Guitars

If you're into metal, I'd suggest DBZ Guitars ( http://www.dbzguitars.com/ ) Dean has been a manufacturer for awesome Metal Gear for quite a while (Dimebag at Pantera just to name a big one). They're still pretty good value for the money (compared to ESP) and they have pretty unique designs. Now DB...

Morgoth at Rock Hard Festival 2011

I saw them used a blackstar Series one 200 full stack at the Rock Hard Festival June 2011 (Germany). Morgot has been one of the first german death metal bands (even one of the first world wide). Their sound was pretty much the best I've hear during 3 days of festival. Really heavy and defined. Check...

please suggest settings for HT 100 Metal Band / short first 1,5 hours review

Thx for the quick replies. I got a call just minutes after my post that "Blacky the Blackheimer" (100 Stage AVenue, 666 Sound City lol) was to be taken home... I called a friend, we picked up the amp and started messing with it for about 1,5 hours. There are several things I noticed: a) the HT I tri...

Tubes again

Does a change of tubes really improve the sound by much? I have ordered my Blackstar HT 100 (it's been on its way for 3 weeks already - what kind of a deal is that anyways?) as my first tube amp. It's not like it's the first tube amp I have played, but it's the first one I own. I've read so much abo...

Re: Solid State Rectification

I agree 100 % There are many things that you need to think about when buying an amp... and if reliabilty was the only one, everyone would use solid states... what I was trying to say however is that when you decide to build a hard wired amp, you start designing that amp a lot different from what you...

Re: Solid State Rectification

First of all, thx everyone for making this thread so very much alive. Like I said before, I'm no technician, so everything I stated is from the point of view of a person who never learned how to fix an amp, but who is very interested in technics as well as the physics background and who does have q...

Solid State Rectification

I have heard and read so much about the HT not being an "all tube" amp, that I wanted to take this discussion here and just add my point of view to it. As any of us already know, the HT use a solid state rectifier. Allthough the rectifier itself is (as I understand it- tell me if I am wrong) not in ...

Re: Best looping effects pedals

If you're into quality Voice Processors, this ( http://www.tc-helicon.com/products/voicepro/ ) ist in my opinion about the only way to go. unfortunately, it's pretty expensive (retail in germany close to € 2.200,--). So Basically, I'm not sure if that's really what you're looking for. Alternatively,...

Re: HT 100 at 50 watts?

DO NOT REMOVE THE TUBES I have read a threat where someone tried to figure out the Blackstar HT schematics for modding. They were discussing some details which I didn't understand, but one thing I do have in mind is that they said to asolutely NOT remove one pair of poweer tubes. They said that in t...
