Re: Replacement speaker for HT40 Club?

The Eminence Governor is claimed by Eminence to be their replacement speaker for the Celestion Vintage 30.
I have 2 Eminence Governors in a 2x12 which I use with a Blackstar Club 50 head.With Excellent results.

Re: Views please on Celestion G12t 75

I have a GT75 in a Ashton V30 tube amp and as mentioned in this forum this speaker has been used in many Marshall cabs.I find the GT75 to be ok, but not as good as a Eminence Governor in overall tonal quality. Recently built a 2x12 using Eminence Governor speakers the cab specs basically the same as...

Re: Fire at the factory?

Apparently that is correct.I was told the same information from the Blackstar Dealer here in Brisbane,Australia when I was looking to purchase a HT-50 head. There was a delay of several months for supply of speaker cabs,amps and pedals.I was waiting to purchase a 2x12 cab to go with the HT-50 head,b...

Re: Reverb Issue on HT-50

Might I add the fact that I am running the amp at very low volume levels.I would suggest that at higher volumes that the reverb control would need to be set at a lower level.

Re: Lead boost for HT-40

I use a Shiba Drive on a HT-50 CLUB HEAD, on the distorted and clean channels. The Shiba Drive has an incredible tone selection and drive selection range.Check out this U tube video to give you a better idea, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3PPwnFRRIa8. I have tried several overdrive pedals but none ...

Re: HT 50 head - a tube question

Hi Alexr, I have a HT-50 head also,excellent amp.I use a Eminence private jack and have none of the issues you are having,still fitted with original valves. I would try another speaker if that is possible.The reason I say this is if I run the HT-50 through my 4X12 Kustom cab there is a lot of bass a...
