Re: Distortion pedal for Ht Stage 100

I use the Clean channel with the voice "country twangy" (can´t remember if its in or out but its distinktivly trebbley), down the master-volume and up the clean with both eq´s over 12....with my humbuckers it pushes her write into distotion beautifully..give that a try ;-)

Re: ECC83 TUBE AS PHASE INVERTER?

email the good folks at blackstar and they will supply you with info. You need to use an 82 in their and there probably is a reason for that. Most amps will use 3x83 and I´ve Heard that the folks at blackstar are a Little secretive about why the use an 82.....but they´re really good with tech suppor...

Re: HT 100 tubes - improving the sound

your specifically looking for a sound.....don´t bother uppgrading the head just get a marshall. On the other hand if you like having the option of 3 channels and would like a better "blackstar sound" I can only recommend swapping tubes. The HTV-100´s run cold so even just having them re-biased will ...

Re: HT Stage 60 - Major Issues!

Shaddy electrics at the venue...wouldn´t be a first ;-) Your gunna have to find someone with good electrical knowledge...the fuse could either be part of the problem or just the amp trying to save itself. I reckon new tubes, new fuse and check bias and you should be good to go!! Unfortunatelly since...

Re: HT Stage 60 - Major Issues!

....you might just have got unlucky with your second AU7, seems plausible....as for the other tubes.....a year of gigging is just about what the standard tubes are good for, and from what I hear when in live situations you should be looking at changing every year anywho. as for getting blackstar to ...

Re: Tube changes and how different preamps influence the sou

Noticed it´s really getting dead around here and haven´t seen many of the experts around. I haven´t had my amp long enough to do any really testing, have just had time for one tube replacement, put these in after stock TAD el34 B-str matched quartet...ask for pc 28´s ( we did 2 amps and bias was max...

Re: HT60 Soloist - modded to improve stage visibility

Just a suggestion but why don´t you put the amp on a stand tilted upwards or up on a table or case ...that way you´ll see you knobs and you will hear yourself a whole lot better....no use in playing for yur feet ;-)

Re: Blackstar HT-100 volume/power issue?

Like the man said..."if you don´t know hwat your doing...don´t"....theres enough ampage stored away in there to give you a really good shock....not worth 20 pounds http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vv2tQYl3cJE&list=RD02OSRy3vtIHoY and my other tip.....next time it happens, grab you smartphone and film ...
