S1-45 - Effects Loop broken?

Hi, Recently tried to hook up pedals into my effects loop and when I switch to the Crunch/Super Crunch channel there's no sound change. The amp plays clean, if slightly louder. However, with nothing in the effects loop, super crunch and crunch work. Am I suddenly doing something wrong or has somethi...

Re: 2nd Side Made (West Midlands, UK)

Still going strong and still working on our first release. And still the Blackstar is kicking ass live and in recording. https://scontent-b-fra.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/v/t1.0-9/10628345_10152617675970590_5963577853541581446_n.jpg?oh=89c18ca83a6f8330c9b784f41d265374&oe=549173BD https://fbcdn-sphoto...

Re: Series One 45 - popping noise

Thanks everyone. Watford Valves seems to be the best bet. As they are plug and play, with the power section requiring bias, any ideas on the following selection (after a bit of ebay searching for ideas)...

Re: Series One 45 - popping noise

Damn. Ok then. Thanks MistaSnowman.

Anyone got any good suggestions? Sadly this tube replacement may have to be on a tight budget.

Series One 45 - popping noise

Hi everyone,

I've had my Series One for 4 years now and I have just developed this problem. Even when the amp has warmed up I get a popping noise mostly on the Warm Clean and Crunch channels.

Would it be safe to assume this would be the time for a tube replacement?

Thanks all.

Product Idea: Smaller Channel Switch

Hi,

First post in a long while but it dawned on me recently; I am trying to use the space on my pedalboard economically, and I thought "What if the channel switch for my S1-45 could be smaller?" - any suggestions or info on this being possible?

S1 45 Combo: quiet whistling when idle?

Hi all, I've had my Series One 45 for 2 years now still on stock tubes. I'm a newbie when it comes to valve amps and just now my amp has developed a sort of whistling noise when I just do nothing on the Super Crunch & Crunch channels (sort of sounds like a Sonic Screwdriver from Doctor Who, if you g...
