Just bought the Blackstar HT100 this morning, sounds great. I always liked the tone from Blackstar clips, ran it into my Marshall Dave Mustaine signature cab with V30's. Wondering what thoughts are on speaker selection and tubes. I read someone on a different site saying they didn't like the tone with V30's but I think it sounds great. I dont really have plans to change anything on it , sounds great stock.

I personally like V30s with the HT line. Fan of Mullard and Tung Sol preamps and Winged C and Gold Lion power. YMMV..

I have some Tungsols on the way for the 12ax7 and JJ 6l6's, if the JJ's don't do it I will put them in a different amp, read your post after ordering but I run JJ's in my other amps & i like them.

I like JJs in my Tweaker. Try them out and if you aren't satisfied, there are other options.

Sounds great, I always find Rubys to be microphonic, some say they are the same as JJ's but if you look at the tube they are different inside. The tungsols made the biggest difference.
