Re: HT-5RH Blown Resistors

FYI...

If you ever wanted to install a choke in the amp... R10 is where it would go.... R10 comes out and the wires from the choke
get soldered in there.....

Re: Succesful Mercury Output Transformer install....

The Mercury Magnetics transformer for the BlackStar HT-5 is.... BLKSTR-HT5-O it was 195.00.... I got it directly from Mercury Magnetics. If you use an amp tech and have them do the work they can save you money on the transformer because they get a deal because of the number they buy from Mercury, bu...

Re: Seeking alternative to the HT-5's dull sounding cabs

Totally agree... TRM Cabs sells cabinets that are finished in Tolex if you want them.... so you would get the benefit of the "Pine" sound....just protected... or he'll do it in Tung Oil.. His main focus is just building the cabinets unfinished to sell to people with some time on their hands and are ...

If I...

Re: Seeking alternative to the HT-5's dull sounding cabs

It comes down to Birch or Pine as to what the cabinet is made of..... The general thought is that birch is for more of a direct, heavier, more modern sound.... Pine is thought of as being more vintage.... Fender cabinets in the 50s and 60s were pine.... Most cabs used for metal music are birch from ...

Re: New 2011 HT-5

I think I will wait :D If this was available when I made the decision I might have gone this way..... So I ended up getting 2 Lopoline 1x12 "TV" cabinets...
