Re: Speaker Swap For the HT-40?

Playing a Soloist 60 1x12. I think the amps are pretty close from what I have heard. I challenge you to notice hardly any difference in a tube swap. The tubes do little for the tone of this amp. I have rolled a bunch of tubes in mine: NOS RCA blackplate &long & short plate Mullard, Sylvania Tung-sol...

Re: Noise when recording from the emulated out

My guess is a ground loop between the amp and what it is plugged into. Without XLR emulated out,it limits your options of how to remedy.

Re: Printable settings template

Agreed on the V30 upgrade. HUGE improvement isn't it? :shock:. I have a Gmajor 2 and have to say I don't really like the way it works with my Soloist 60 (unity settings problem + I really like the Blackstar's reverb) compared to how it worked with some other amps but I blame it more on the G major2 ...

My soloist 60 journey (and rave) so far

When I first tried my soloist 60 in the store, I was attracted by how great the clean sound(s) were. I knew Blackstars had a rep for distortions but 95% of amps known for their overdrive have unusable, hard stiff cleans that are too uncompressed and don’t work good for a variety of stuff live. They ...

Re: Blackstar HT Soloist 60 channel switch with Voodo Lab

I have just finished up a few really nice cables that switch a HT60 via 3x 1/4 TS Momentary Clean/OD/OD2 (or boost). I left Reverb out because I like it on.(It could be added easy enough though.) They work on systems like a Voodoo labs GCX or anything that outs 1/4" momentary. (although when tested ...

Re: Stage 60 recomended tubes for indie rock

I'd put in sino tubes. Pre & Power. They're cheap and just fine. I've rolled Tung sol, EH, Vintage 1961 Mullard, JJ, RCA Blackplates,Solvtech, Sylvania to name a few. In an amp like Blackstar where tubes aren't the sole generator of clipping, the tubes make little difference but in your imagination....

Blackstar solo 60 live rig

Here is my "Mini" rig. 1 effect rack & a Gmajor 2 used for effects. The GCX unit switches the channels on the Blackstar & GMajor 2 with the custom cables I had made with the help of forum members. It is also easy to add vintage or any pedals before the input jack or in effects loop and control every...

Re: HT Staghe 60 Valve & Speaker upgrade

Do you recall what the plate voltage was? That seems high for a EL34 amp.
Guessing 380 PV 25W / 380 = .066 x .7 = .046

Smaller HT voicing difference

The larger HT series have a OD switch between "Classic" and "Modern". On the HT models W/O the switch, which setting is it set closest to? I'm guessing classic mode suggests Marshall tones and Modern mode suggest ????- Usually with a lot of amp designers Modern would mean Boogie/Rectifier ish but Bl...
