Just got a HT1R about a week or so ago. Bought it as a travel amp - we spend three months a year down south in the winter in a really small place, so a small, good at low volume amp is the order of the day. Had a Vox Adio, which is an excellent little THR type modeling amp, but I wasn’t using the modeling or effects capabilities of that amp. And it’s a good sounding amp and a decent pedal platform, but I thought I could do better for my needs. Tried an Orange Crush 20 and the HT1R and really like the HT1 a lot more.
I’m a low volume player anymore to begin with and my main amp at home is a Blues Cube Hot, which I love, but the HT1R sounds very close to as good, even with the little 8” speaker. It’s not like I’m letting the Blues Cube’s 12” speaker really breathe at the volumes I play at anyway. The Blues Cube isn’t going anywhere, but if I’d had the HT1R before I’d played the Blues Cube, I might never have bought the Roland. I’m playing it basically clean with a small pedal board in front, so I don’t really need the gain channel or the reverb, but they’re there I’d i ever decide to use em...
Guess i never posted this picture in here. My 3 blackstars, a fly3, ht1, and a ht20. I started with the fly and it has become a bit of an addiction lol
I do have an HT-40 club series, the previous gen. Looks like all the others but sounds great. It has digital reverb instead of a pan. That’s why I bought my tweed blues jr.
HT1RH with good headphones makes me very happy.
Studio 20 Head - giggity
1 watt HT1 Head - This is becoming my favorite evening practice head.
The HT1 can get loud when played thru a 4x12..very loud...even thru 1X12....
A couple of weeks ago I spent a merry hour or so in GC playing an HT Club 40 MkII. It was a little more than I was looking to spend, so I shopped around a bit and found a deal on the older version. I think I even like it better than the MkII.
I've ordered the matching external speaker cab too. Anything worth doing is worth overdoing.
I picked a HT-1 Metal Head a while back that I run through various different cabs.
Yesterday I picked this beauty - a HT-5R Mini Stack in Arctic White.
Just bought this beauty to compliment the ones above (should be here Friday)
Blackstar HT-5TH 2x10 Combo (5th Anniversary Limited Edition)
I bought a Blackstar HT5r head a few months ago on a sale and scored a matching 1x12 used local for $100 bucks. Sounds great. I've got a spare vintage 30 lying around and will get around to changing the speaker out soon. My fly 3 was a gateway amp which prompted the purchase.
Whats the verdict on the MKI vs MKII? I have sights on a HT-5 with a V30 but if the MKII is that much improved , I may wait. I'm not super interested in the voicing stuff or the USB interface, but an improvement in the dirt circuit and a better reverb may sway me. Thanks!
Gorgeous...did you find that NOS?
Yeah a local store had it locked away in its store room and had forgot about it till I showed the owner the white stack and he remembered having the combo. A hour of searching through the stockroom and she was mine for £300 (roughly the price they go for 2nd hand on evilbay) I've got some NOS Mullard and Amperex 12ax7's that I'm going try out in the preamp stage.
I have a Blackstar Fly 3 that I modified with a more efficient Neodymium speaker and mounted a pair of Schaller guitar strap locks so that I can wear the amp while playing. With the speaker mod, the amp is louder and sounds better to my ears.
I have a trio of HT-1 heads with 1x12 cabinets. Three different looks: standard black, bronco tan (Musician's Friend special), and blonde (Sweetwater special). I've been considering selling them, but they made for a really good W/D/W rig with stereo effects for experimentation. They sound really good and are as simple as it gets.
I’m considering the HT-20 MkI. I like a neutral clean like JC. Don’t need the voice options. I like the control layout much better on the front of the amp.
The thing holding me back is the dirt channel sounding very pedal-like. The dirt from my Randall RD5 is awesome so I’m also looking at their RD20 for the two channels. 20 watts is more than I need but I’m tired of knob fiddling for a clean through a 5W amp.
I use a comp, boost and delay. That’s all. I want dirt from my amp. When it’s right, it just sounds and feels so much better to me than pedals.
