Re: Best pedal for driving the front end?

My OD9 arrived a few days ago. Sounds great to push the amp into heavier territory.. well, it's basically a tubescreamer, but i noticed it has less of that dreaded mid hump.

Re: Best pedal for driving the front end?

Barber Direct Drive. Awesome pedal in front of the HT20. I've got a Maxon OD9 coming in a few weeks. I'll get back to you on this.

Re: what ht20 stock tubes are?

True. Speaker swap indeed makes the HT20 sound a lot better. I've got a Scumback H55 in mine. Thinking about getting an M75.

Re: what ht20 stock tubes are?

Stock are Sovtek 12AX7 and TADEL34. The Sovtek tubes are the low end ones, not really favored by a lot of users. I switched both of them to TungSol tubes and I couldn't be happier. JJ's would probably have a more in your face tone.

Re: Upgraded my HT20 Speaker

The stock Celestion Rocket 50 really isn't a great speaker. I replaced mine with a Weber Scumback H55 and I couldn't ask for more.

Re: Speakers and HT Venue

Scumback is in! Definitely sounded way better than the stock Rocket 50 speaker.

Speakers and HT Venue

Just wondering what speakers you have in your HT amps. I was supposed to get a WGS Reaper but a friend of mine gave me a good price for a Scumback H55. It would be arriving in a few weeks. So.. what speakers do you have in those amps?
