In the regular HT 40, yes. It seems the "Deluxe" model (has textured tolex) uses the A-Type instead of the 70/80.

Re: Blackstar HT40 Hum Problems

Alright - have had my HT Club 40 for about 5 days now. Played it about 1-2 hrs a day since getting it. I hear a "hiss", like white noise, and wondering if this is just normal. Seems to come from speaker but hard to say. It's definitely NOT a hum or buzz. It's faint at my playing levels in the house....

N/m... the "A-type" is an actual speaker by Celestion. Described as having an "American tone"... hence A-type... duh. :D

Blackstar HT Club 40 Deluxe - what speaker comes stock?

The only specs I can find say it has an "A-type" Celestion speaker. Does this mean it has an "Alnico" speaker? (blue/gold/cream)?

I have a regular HT 40 with the 70/80. It's fine for me so far. Just wondering what the Deluxe has. No shops have the DLX near me.

Hello from MSP

Just picked up an HT club 40. Awesome amp so far.

Re: Blackstar HT40 Hum Problems

Sorry to post in such an old thread... just stumbled upon this. Just got an HT 40. I assume the hum described is with the amp on, but guitar volume at zero (or not guitar plugged in at all). Just want to make sure I know what to listen for. PS - got the HT 40 this past weekend. Made in China on the ...

NAD - Blackstar HT 40

Just picked this up this weekend. Literally took me 3 trips to the guitar shop to compare/play back and forth vs a Marshall DSL40C. Also tried a Fender Bassbreaker 15 for a few minutes. That one didn't last long. Ultimately I chose the HT Club 40 - just sounded better to me and more versatility. The...
