The Array

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49387173412_7afd3cd06d_b.jpg HT-5 Metal head, Artist 15 combo. I use either at home for a wet/dry/wet rig with either of the stereo tube power amps and vertical 2x12's with either a 4x12 or 1x12 in the center. I gig with the Artist 15 lately, but I'm considering ...

Re: Guitar and Amp All-in-one combo (Frankie)

That's wild! I bet it sounds way better than its predecessors though (lookin' at you, Synsonics). You should make a video demo sometime.

Re: Blackstar Rackmount Pre-amp Anyone?

Was Googling and found this thread. I'm thinking about putting my HT-5 Metal either in a rack case as a head in foam or taking the amp's chassis and putting it into a shelf or drawer or empty rackmount chassis of some sort. I like using its power section at home or for small jams but it sounds reall...

Re: Returning to Blackstar

I can't speak to the ID series but I've got an HT-5RH Metal that I keep on the desk these days and leave in standby usually with the DI going into an old 2:1 PC speaker set. It sounds like a monster in a jar, especially with another overdrive in front of it. Back when I was living alone I would just...

Re: HT 5R: Too loud in OD with gain above 12'oclock - volume almost at zero - no more play

I've got the "metal" version as a head and it's pretty much the same but I rarely get past 9 o'clock on the gain. With single coils facing it in a small room it's pretty squealy. Honestly a 1W amp is plenty without a drummer. The 5 watt'er can keep up with a moderate drummer and bassist, but gets wa...

FX send without return?

Can you do that on these? It's on the metal version if that matters. I know you can do the opposite but that's not what I'm curious about. Also, if you can do it, you wouldn't have reverb right?
