New HT Stage 60 owner. Took it through the paces today with a Fender Blackie Strat and a PRS Custom 24, and I must say this amp can really put out some great tones.
Started with the sample "Rock Covers" setting and went from there, finding my one first "temporary" setting. The ISP circuit is a gas!!

When I changed the speaker to my Marshall 4x12 1960a cab, the sound got smoother, less harsh, and better harmonics.

I am replacing the stock speakers with a Celestion Vintage 30 and a Celestion G12m Greenback (1971 vintage).
The original EL34's were replaced with Ruby El34's and I am going to try some different pre-amp tubes and see what happens.

So far, a big fat Image

P.S. I really appreciate all the current members information, as reading the forums not only convinced me to buy the Stage 60, but to modify it, as well.
You folks saved me a lot of work. I hope to be able to contribute in the future.
