    Had a little Christmas cash left over after my new headphones and figured I'd give one of these a try. Amplug2 I'd played a Jackson SL2 thru one in a store a few months back and got an ok tone, nothing great, but figured I could fiddle a bit and dial in something useful. Well, after 30...

    Been interested in trying a Blackstar amp and found one on "sale" at Guitar Center. It's the ID:150, solid state, not the core series. Anyway, didn't think to look, but the head is 4ohms, my Mesa cab is 8ohms. Is this a problem?

    Not sure if anyone's seen this as it's been around for awhile, but I just stumbled onto it through the Blackstar FB group. Worth checking out:

    Hey guys I'm lookin for some opinions here to figure out which amp I should go with. I've been playing for a couple years now and am mostly a bedroom player with the occasional jam session with another guitarist. At this point I don't plan on gigging and am really just playing covers and...

    I've read a lot of reviews and saw a few strange comments like they have no soul... But still wanted to try one... Having sold my Laney Iron Heart and a brief encounter with Jamup Pro through a P.A speaker, I headed down to Icon Music here in Sydney.... Thirty minutes later I was laying down...

    Hey guys, so I've been researching these for a while, and I thought they sounded pretty cool in most of the clips I've heard. The other day, I was browsing through the used gear section on Dave's Guitar Shop and one had just popped up for almost half price of a new one. Ordered it on Monday and...

    Hi guys, first time poster, don't be too mean :p I was wondering if any of you metalheads have had experience with this amp. I have the opportunity to by this from a mutual friend for $375 (originally $750). From everything i see on youtube and such, this seems like an absolute killer of a...

    Hi there, haven't posted here for a while :/. My HT5 has gone very quiet and is you can only hear it when the volume is turned to max. I opened it up (Yes, I do know what I am doing) and checked the voltages on the tubes and power supplies - all looks good (~350V for HT, 12.6V for heaters)...

    Once again I posted this on SSO, but I seem to get more responses here. So I posted a thread earlier about help finding an amp, and I think I've narrowed it down to two. Once again, your opinion is needed. Before I compare these two, I looked at the 6505+ and JCA amps. I eliminated the JCA...

    LOOKS fairly awesome! I'm hoping the HT-5 Metal sounds badass, as it'd be nice to have a practice rig again that isn't VST's in Reaper. HT METAL Guitar Amplifiers - Blackstar Blackstar HT Metal 5H 5 Watt Head

    Still thinking about getting a smaller amp for practice, bought a B-52 AT-100 w/ 4x12 cab a few weeks ago.. great amp but a little loud for what I need here (impulse buy). Well now I'll have it for whenever I start playing with a band at least. I plan on using one of the amps in question...

    Interested in peoples opinions of either the HT-1 or HT-1R combo's or the HT-1RH head. They seem ideal for a small practice amp and quick jams when you just need something small & light to grab and take with you. Anyone played one or own one? I really want to get out and try one. :yesway:
