Re: My effects loop only works with certain pedals - HT-40

Have you tried the Effects Loop Level button? The HTs don't necessarily like some Delays, etc. I have a Boss DD7 in my chain, and in one of the settings, had some issues. Switched that to the other setting, has worked fine since (Few years now).

Re: Blackstar ht-5 combo, want to buy 1x12 cab for playing m

Wow. Haven't been on here in 2 years... Any way, I recently picked up a VHT 1x12 cab. I want less, and less, backline volume (Went from a 2x12). Not sure about the speaker that was in it, since I've been using Warehouse for several years and am perfectly happy with them, so swapped the stock one for...

Re: HT-20 Tone.

Congrats. I love the HT20-H. Will tell you that, for me, new tubes made it incredible. For Frusciante-type, ya, should be able to get it. A chorus pedal in there might be nice to have in the mix.

For the cleaner type thing, lower gain pre tubes might be worth looking into as well.

Re: HT-5TH: right move?

I've not played through a "stock" B* speaker, so have no idea how they sound. But, I, generally, use a Warehouse VET30 1x12 with my HT5-H and it sounds great. I describe it as all the goods of Celestion without the "bads" (To me, they're high end is often a big shrill. The WH seem to smooth this out...

Re: OD Channel on HT20 Studio has crazy buzz

Certainly sounds like the tubes. Favourite replacements seem to be TungSols and JJs (I'd agree with this assessment. I use JJs in my BSs. Have used TungSols in some amps and they've worked well/sounded good. Their pres have an earlier breakup point, but keep a tight focused sound in doing so). If yo...

Re: Same sound than HT5 but more power

Ya, running the Em out on the HT5, then coming through the mons would work, and Soundguys will love you. You'll make their job easier and, generally, get a better mix easier since no one is battling stage volume issues. Personally, I think the HT20, inherently, has a more" Classic-y" feel than the H...

Re: HT-40 Tubes

Not sure who's making tubes for Mesa, nowadays, if they actually have a specific vendor. I BELIEVE GT used to provide them with tubes. I actually have a couple of Mesa pres from many years ago. Some are good, some decent. I'd imagine, hope, that they buy on several criteria to match what's best in t...
