is the soloist 60 discontinued?

I was telling a friend about the great deal I got on my soloist amp. when I went to show him on the sweetwater site, it was no longer there. I checked a few other places, and they don't show them either. is there something new coming? either way, I am happy with my choice and the price I got my amp ...

Re: got my soloist today

an update-I've had this amp for a week, and like it a lot. the clean channel makes it easy to dial in a sound, and the crunch channel lets me get the amount of distortion just right. very happy1

I saw sweetwater had the soloist for 499, so I ordered one and it got here today. all I can say is wow! only played it for a bit before my wife went to bed, but plan to crank it tomorrow morning before work. ...

Re: HT-40 Bias Information

just got a club 40, and found this thread on biasing-thank you! is this pretty much all I need to know? I am just a bit confused about what test points to use, and if I just need to adjust bias, or if there is a way to adjust plate voltage too. I see 3 test points (10, 18, and 13), or at least that'...

Re: new to blackstar

next question- where do I test for bias on each power tube? I saw a thread (and maybe I missed something-sorry) that mentioned test points, but I'm not sure where they are for each tube. thanks again for this...phred

Re: new to blackstar

I have a question- I found the page for the bias info-seems straitforward, but I am confused by the adjustment that says "balance" . can someone explain what that is for?
