HT Club 40 Vintage Pro Limited Edition

I bought this amp brand new and have had it only a short time but I have figured some things out. This amp comes equipped with a Celestion Vintage 30 16ohm speaker and "Ruby" tubes. From what I read of the Rubies they could be anything. I found that the amp was missing a considerable amount of botto...

Re: HT20H Cab out put: 1x8 ohm + 1x16ohm at the same time?

You can do it, but there's a catch: Most tube amps, (specifically the Output Transformers) can take up to a 2x +/- impedance mismatch with no issues whatsoever. Blackstars are no different. What that means is you can run both the internal 16 ohm speaker and an 8 ohm extension cabinet safely off the...

The options off the combo amps are one 16, one 8, or two 16s. Not a 16 and an 8. The proposition of a 16 and an 8 doesn't make any sen...

Re: HT20H Cab out put: 1x8 ohm + 1x16ohm at the same time?

Ok on a similar topic, what if I want to use an HTV212 with my club 40? In my head its just not working. How can I plug the combo's 16ohm and the cab's mono 8ohm at the same time with proper impedance everywhere? Surely we're not expected to not use the combo's on board speaker when we get an extens...

Hello from the Toronto area

Good day everyone! I have played a couple of Blackstar amps and I'm excited to announce that I just bought a brand new HT Club 40 Vintage Pro Limited edition from a local retailer's online sale. :D I have been a long time ESP with EMGs into a Mesa/Boogie guy but now I'm dramatically changing my styl...
