My New Amp Arrived Today! biggrin.gif

I bought a Blackstar HT 5 combo.

So far it sounds just great.

Anyone out there have any settings I can try?

try the settings that they give you at the top of the amp (that little paper thing) those 2 settings sound really good and ive been starting there and tweaking the eq from there to get my sounds!

Sweet. On my Line 6 I usually set something like this...

Drive(Gain/Dist.) : 1-2 o' clock
Bass: 1-2 o' clock
mid: about 9 o' clock
Treble: 4 o' clock



Or basically Teble and Bass high Mid low, and not too much distortions.... Good metal tone. smile.gif
