Re: Lowering gain with preamp tube swaps for HT amps?

I also have done this with my HT20 combo. I left a 12AX7 for my clean channel, and used a 5751 for the gain channel. It very much "tamed" the OD channel. Later I switched that for a 12AY7 which I'm using right now. It's way more usable for what I do with the amp.

Re: Time for service....

If I'm not mistaken, Blackstar doesn't warrantee the tubes for that long anyway. If you purchased coverage from the store you bought it at, I'd try that.

I'm no expert, but I would think that if you had done any damage you'd know it by now.

Re: HT-studio 20 loosing bass and volume

I'd say probably 9 out of 10 problems with Blackstar amps are tube related. I believe this to be the problem with your amp as well.
