How loud can it get?

How much headroom does this have?

If its not loud enough for my needs, I'm gonna go with one of these:

Valveking
B-52 AT-112
Triple XXX
Laney GH50L
Everything maxed through a 4x12 it's barely keeping up with a rock band.

There is no headroom. Get something else if you wanna gig. The HT-5 is advertised as being for the bedroom or the studio (recording) - and that's pretty much all it's good for.

It sounds like what you're going to want to look at is either getting this and having it readily miced to boost the cleans above drums.

I doubt you can though and i don't know your price range so i recommend you get a either another blackstar either from the new series one coming out, an aritsan 15, or the peavey XXX.

I got my ht-5 head last week, i didn't have money for a cab and I didn't want a 10" speaker so i gutted my H&K 60 watt ss and turned it into a cab. I love this amp. it's perfect for my apartment.

But a good one trick pony at that.

I've always wanted to try the HT-5. It intrigues me. Looks like a great, solid little amp. GC hasn't gotten one in yet, but I really want to crank one.

Ok another couple of questions
1. Is it quiet enough for bedroom use?
2. Does it have a gain knob as well?

1. It's can be as quiet as you want, but the distortion is better when it's quiet if your driving the an OD through it.
2. It has a gain knob as well as a complete second channel for it!

So is anyone else (who actually owns an HT-5) really disappointed with what happens when you plug in an average OD pedal?

I've tried a Bad Monkey and Green Screamer (as well as my LPB-1, which I know, isn't an OD pedal) and can't get anywhere that the amp's regular OD channel can't.

Maybe since the HT-5 uses the preamp from the HT-Dual pedal there isn't much point in trying to push an OD pedal through it?

I'm actually rather happy whenever i plug in my ibanez ts9 tube screamer and electro-harmonic big muff. The muff gives me a nice hendrix and muse sound and the tube screamer gives me nice sustain, letting me play most metalcore.

It may be that i don't use the amps OD channel too much because i personally find it easier to use the stomp boxes. It's easier not to worry about the shared equalizer and i can fine too to my own disires alittle more. I do though wish that the footswitch was like 5 ft. longer.

I want one so badly, i have just enough for the Mini Stack but a lot of people said the they ar pretty bad and im a little scared of 1x10 cabinets. If kind of made up my mind that ill only get it with like a nice 2x12 (an Orange or Mesa would be nice) but because of Aussie prices that would REALLY strain my budget. I figure that it has taken me a very long time to save what money i have so im not going to settle for a 1x10 combo or some ****ty Behringer cab.

Anyone got information i should know for when i can get one (whenever that may be). Also, im a little confused with the tubes in this amp like wtf is a 12BH7 because there isnt even anything in the tube thread about it. And what if you replace the power tube with like a 6L6 or something, would that change the natural voicing and how would that affect the ISF feature.

I only really spent a significant amount of time with the Bad Monkey, so perhaps it's just the one pedal. I found that with the gain turned up anywhere past 0 I was getting major tone suckage. The fullness that I typically get on the OD channel was just gone, replaced by some terrible shrill sound that brought me straight back to the garbage little 15W SS starter amp I had some years ago.

Maybe if I'm happy (the word to describe it in my case is actually thrilled) with the tone I'm getting from the HT-5 I should just forget about the OD pedals. That said, I do really wanna try a Big Muff (again) one of these days.

In the case of the Aussie it might be cheaper to just build your own cab. Surely trees grow in Australia so you should be able to get wood locally without paying the A(ustralia)-typical arm-and-a-leg prices. Then you're just a nice V30 away from having a good sounding cab.

The 12BH7 isn't interchangeable with any of the popular types of tubes. As far as I know there are options for different types of tube but the biggest gains are to be had from getting a 12BH7 from a different manufacturer. Any tube change is going to mess with the amp a little, but since the ISF just alters the parameters of the EQ all the changes should be relative.
