Re: New HT-20 Studio combo - Hum

I have the same problem with my HT20 head, and it hums with the master set to 0, so there shouldn't be any noise coming through. It comes through the emulated line out too. Is this a common problem?

Re: HT-60 Loud Enough For Rock Gigging?

The HT20 is probably more than enough for gigging, but the 40 and 60 have some nice extra features. I remember back in the day (yeah, I'm old) using old NMV Marshalls and never being able to run them loud enough in clubs for them to really sound good. Even when I went to MV 800s and 900s sound men u...

Re: Blackstar HT 60 soloist

Yes, it will be louder than the RG75, the HT40 is probably louder than the Randall.

Re: Using headphones with no cabinet plugged in?

Again, bummer, I picked up the HT5 head 'cause I didn't want to carry my HT40 combo around when I was going direct anyway. Guess I'll have to pick up a big 8 or 16 ohm resistor to make a load for it when I'm running direct...

Re: Using headphones with no cabinet plugged in?

So, I just picked up a used HT5 head, and it does not output to the DI output when in standby like my HT-40. It does kill the signal to the speaker though. So, while is should be safe to run without a cabinet if there is no signal to the output tube, I can't recommend it. Kind of a bummer since I wa...

Re: isf control question

The Original Marshalls were based on Fender Bassmans. The original Boogies were modified Fenders. So, Fender is pretty much where they all started :o

Re: Using headphones with no cabinet plugged in?

I'm new here, but have been playing tube amps for years (Mesa, Marshall, Soldano, etc...). I have a HT-40 and am considering a HT5 for when I have to run direct. On the 40, you can run the emulated out with the amp in standby, is that not true for the HT5? If you can run it in standby, the amp will ...
