Re: HT-20 Head extremely muddy

The WGS Vet 30 I put in my HT-20 combo helped significantly. I also made my combo an open-back by fabricating a partial back panel (search for HT-20 Opening the Back thread with pics) and it also gave the trebles a kick and an overall chimey/room-filling tone. Lastly, I have a MXR 10 band out front ...

Vet 30 in a HT-20

Based on a lot of information from this forum and listening to sound clips, I decided that the $69 + shipping was inexpensive enough to take a chance on the WGS Veteran 30 as a replacement for the Rocket 50.

Re: HT-20 Combo - Opening the back?

Update:

Ordered a WGS Vet 30 today to see if I can improve the tone a little. I'll post some clips before/after when I get it loaded.

Re: HT-20 Combo - Opening the back?

I decided to take your advice and add a little structural support by reinforcing the top with some 1/2" birch. A little sanding/paint and voila ... http://carphotos.cardomain.com/ride_images/1/1319/2149/3296074001_large.jpg Still leaves it wide open and preserves that transparent sound. I'm pleased....

Re: HT-20 Combo - Opening the back?

Has anyone else pulled the back off their BS combo??

Curious to hear what you think of the tone... Image
