Re: Removing Plastic under the Tube Viewing Window

That is good advice thanks , but i did remove it a few days ago lol. If i dont spill anything on it I assume my boost will work and sound better. All the other tube pedals I recall have some sort of ventilation . Seriously though it gets uber hot in there if its on for a while. Sometimes im using it...

Removing Plastic under the Tube Viewing Window

Just picked up a wonderful used ht boost and noticed the viewing window isnt a vent just a window.

The plastic is underneath and is removable.
Wondering if anyone has removed it.
Seems kinda weird they didnt put any vents in it.

The blackstar definitely has more gain but the jcm 800 is the definition of the sound of rock..

Re: Help with HT100

Im quite sure the jack tip is what complets the circuit to to the speakers. So in other words your amp think it has a load And I would not use any of the other taps untill you get it out of there. Pcb mounted jacks are a pain in the ass

Re: Crunch v Supercrunch relative volume levels

Hey Redknuckles, I think the problem is that when you boost gain and have a bit more bass and saturation, the mids get lost a bit so your ear perceives this as a volume cut. To compensate for this, they redesigned the circuit to give a slight boost. If you want complete control over everything, the...

Re: Crunch v Supercrunch relative volume levels

Or a variable resistor, i.e. pot :shock: [/quote] Or that! But a toggle would be cleaner looking on the front unless its not to crowded on the back :) Now that I think about it, why would blackstar change it to a db boost when people complanied about it originally dropping dbs? They didnt really fix...
