Re: Replacement Knobs For the HT5R (black w/ a white line)

Oh I don't know offhand .... I'll have to check when I'm home and get a chance.
It's the diameter of the spindle that's important.

Try an EQ pedal in the chain, or even better, in the effects loop.

My first impression of the clean tone was a little underwhelming. It's ok, but seems to be lacking something - I don't know what. To be fair, I need to play with it a bit more before I make up my mind.

Re: HT20 Combo still available?

Ah, thanks. I looked at the weekend and didn't find anything at all, not even a listing for them.
Good to know they are still around. :)

I bit the bullet last night and ordered an HT5R combo, and the 20 is likely to be my next step up if I start gigging more.

HT20 Combo still available?

A few months ago just about everywhere had them in stock. Now I see that Andertons.co.uk and even Thomann.de don't have them even mentioned at all. Only the HT20 Head seems available.

I thought with B*, as with most amp makers, the valves are not covered anyway?
