You really don't need to be trolling around and posting in threads that you have no useful contributions in, anyway if helping other people out helps them become owners then i'm going to do it to help clear-up all the clutter in the forums about this amp.

My youtube is acting up right now, so it's crashing everytime i'm starting a video. I'm pretty sure though after taking a look at them that it should be able to reach their level. I'll give you a more accurate answer once my new computers comes tommorrow.

I had a listen to some King Diamond (reminds me of one of the dudes from Repo!) and I'd say the HT-5 should be able to do a pretty convincing cover.

Edit: Of course, my post is assuming that you've got a guitar already geared towards that kinda metal...

Yea, the guitar is definately going to be a help in achieving what your looking for, same with an eq or something. You can't expect the amp to do absolutly everything.

it would definately be the head i would get, for more versatility. do you reckon with a 412 it would be loud enough for a small gig haha?

not gigging yet, but all the local bands can get a place on emFest which normally has around 200-400 people, dunno about a PA or anything, but this wouldn't really be a deciding factor on this amp as much as a perk really

just your best cranking it at a loud music shop lol
other than that a PA is your best bet
but the HT-5 isnt designed for gigs
just bedroom and studio

Well, it's able to be gigged with, you just need to mic it through a PA. If not, then it's limited to the studio and bedroom.

don't worry anyone can see hes an attention seeking troll. i'm sure these people are very sad people in real life, devoid of any kind of relationships with people

anyway, i've got a chance to try one out sometime next week, and hope that i can get great tones out of it

EDIT: would you say its better to buy the mini stack for 400 or try and haggle for just the head (i dont think they sell them alone) and a 212 speaker?

They sell the head separately. So, yes, get a good 2x12 to go with the head. It would sound much better than getting the full stack.

I wonder if they're ever going to cancel the Blackstar 10" cabs. Since they kinda pales in comparison to even the most budget 12" equipped cabs and everything.

this shops website seems not too, although from ebay the head sells for about 250, and the stack is 400, so i guess i will have about 250 to spend on a cab that would go well with it.

are the cabinets with it good enough to test it out with?

I'd ask the people at the store if you could plug into something a little more in line with what you'd like to own. Surely they'll have a 2x12 or a 4x12 you can use and if they say no, then go somewhere else :P

i agree, only reason i got the full stack is i didnt have enough money for a cab at the time, (i wanted a mesa cab)

Orange 2x12 is going to have V30's, the Marshall will have G12's. I'm perfectly happy with my G12 equipped JCM 800 cab and I was happy with he G12 1936 2x12 I had before that.

All this being said, I've never played through V30's so :P

With everything set to 10 it might eek through a gig as rhythm guitar...

As for playing in the bedroom - it does has a volume knob.

even with metal its still good to have a bit of power amp distortion i think.
and if it would only work with volume at ten then it would probably be too messy haha.

thanks anyway

will do haha
might be a little on though, cos my final geography exam is the next day, and physics on the actual day!
(i have the worst birthday everrrr )

but keep an eye out, my NAD WILL happen!
and it will be orgasmic!
its a great amp from what i tried it against in the shop

i compared it to a fender champ 600, which disappointed me
a vox AC4, which was ok, but not special
a fender vibro champ XD, which i disliked, it sounded so unnatural cos the hybrid of tube and modelling features
and the runner up was the orange AD5, which was nice, but after i went black(star) i couldnt go back!
