Ok so....

When I was in the states, I ordered something. And it was a week late, so i called to check where it was and GC said it was delayed. Then I called again, and started yelling and screaming, till they finally hung up on me (mother f***ers.

The day before I left for home, I went to Disneyland, and when I came home, to my surprise, stood (drumroll please).......



The Blackstar HT-5 Halfstack! Everyone seems to have one of these now .



I've had this amp for 2 weeks now, plays like a dream. Jut got around to doing a NAD now.
Also, I got a new set of pups for my guitar. Installing them was a bi***, cos the cables wouldn't reach the output jack. So i just soldered wires to the tips and lengthened them. Problem solved. I got the Alexi Laiho EMG set. The pickup on its own is not that good for high gain stuff, but with the gain booster it sounds better than any active I have ever tried. And I love the 3 frequency switches on the bottom.

Family Pic (at least the ones I'm proud of):

And if anyone could help me get a Bodom-ish tone out of the HT-5 that would be awesome.

Cheers guys

Like 311 said, Bodom will be pretty tough. You'll need a decent boost or OD at the very least and you're gonna want to keep it more towards the British side on the ISF.

HNAD!

I find the Bad Monkey works surprisingly well as a boost for the HT-5. I can get some super-saturated metal tones with mine. Go used and you can probably get one for $25.

Ah, but the thing is i live in Lebanon. I can't find anything here. And if I do, prices are probably jacked up.
But I've seen a Bad Monkey in Lebanon, probably 100$ or so. Soooooooo damn expensive, when it's actually 50$.
