Helix

I saw the Canadian 80's metal band Helix over the weekend. Both guitarists were playing Blackstar heads into Marshall cabs. They sounded really good!

Wouldn't a Marshall DSL40C get you closer to the sound you want?

Re: Overdrive pedals

I have a first generation HT5 and an HT20. I use a Boss Super Overdrive as a solo boost in front of both amps. It makes it louder with more gain and compression. For a clean boost, I use an MXR 10-band EQ in the effects loop. I would say both pedals work very well for what i need.

Re: HT Stage 60 - new speakers

If I were you, I'd wire my two 8ohm speakers in series and plug into the "1x16ohm" speaker jack.
That's what I'd do..... :)

Re: Using the emulated output while gigging?

I also play my Blackstar HT20 in church. We meet in a movie theatre, and I generally have the amp on a small floor stand angled up in front of me, as a personal monitor. I've gone to the pa both ways, miked with an SM-57 off center or using the emulated out through a DI box. I prefer to use a mic be...
