Yes. Turn the dial on the head to 16 and set the cab to mono 16. Congrats. I love mine.

Re: Amp won't work after trying to connect midi

If the amp is not turning on, you may have blown a fuse. Check the fuse to see if it's still good.

Re: SERIES ONE 50 REPAIR GUY CANT FIGURE OUT WHATS WRONG

That's too bad. If the amp is out of warranty and the tech can't fix it, you may be running out of options. Can you return it to the person who sold you the amp?

Re: replacement knobs

Congrats! I have a S1 200, and I love it. As for knobs, I agree, they are hard to see, especially in darker venues. I was thinking about putting a small drop of nail polish at the marker to make it more visible.

Re: Blackstar HT40 club VS Blackstar ID60TVP 1x12

Tube amps are reliable, and you don't need to replace the tubes all that often. I've had the same tubes in all my tube amps for years. I will change the preamp tubes in search of different tones, but that's just plug and play. As for a tech to retube, that's a good way to go, but make sure your tech...

Re: Are Blackstar Amps Good Amps?

Every amp manufacturer will put out a defective product here and there. You just got unlucky with the one you bought. Also, a defective product is a defective product, and turning it off and back on will not fix it. The guy who told you to do that is an idiot. I have had a Series One 200, HT100 and ...

Re: V30 with Seventy 80 in a HT60

I have a 2x12 and a 4x12 Blackstar cabs, both of which came with 70-80 speakers. I think the speakers sound OK for overdriven tones, but for cleans, the highs are ear-piercing and not workable at high volumes. I wound up switching all of them with Celestion K-100s and that made a world of difference...
