Re: Celestion Seventy 80s gotta go!

Thanks all. Its going to be a few months before I can afford to change the speakers anyway. So, in that time maybe the 70/80 will grow on me and break in. Thanks for the advice. Have any of you tried changing the preamp tubes? I am trying to dial the gain back a bit on the overdrive channel (I was ...

Re: Thoughts on my new HT 40

Totally agree about the tightness of the different voicings. I kinda envy the HT40 for its voice button - I have the HT20. You can always tighten up the loose setting with an OD pedal in front of the amp with the gain at 0 and level up high, works great for that purpose.

Re: Blackstar HT-40 - possibilties? Tubes/Speakers/Tweeks etc

Welcome! Sound like you are looking for a specific speaker, so i may not be of too much help. I can tell you that swapping out the stock speaker on my HT-20 made a BIG difference. I first had an Eminence Wizard in it, which was really loud (103.5db sensitivity) and open sounding, added lots of clean...

Re: HT60 Stage Rattle and Buzz

That sounds like something's wrong. My HT20 stays clean up to pretty loud volumes, and no weird noises. Stupid question but do you have the clean preamp volume cranked up?

Loopmaster -Works with HT-20 channel switching?

Looking to get this to make my effects a one switch ordeal...

loopmaster

anyone know for sure if it works for switching the HT-20 channel? It should in theory i believe, but it would be nice to take the gamble out of the purchase.

Re: Probably a dumb question, but here goes.....

This is really a 'historic' problem caused by the same type of connectors being used for both purposes... if they had entirely different plugs, no-one would worry about mixing them up! I was thinking that as i read your post. They really crapped the bed when coming up with the same jacks. "They" co...

Re: Best pedal for driving the front end?

^^ one of these days i'm going to pick up an OCD. I tried one when i got my TS9, Sounded good, but seemed to have tons of gain for an OD. I keep hearing nothing but good things about it since then.
