Someone wants to sell me a Celestion Rocket 50. I intend to pair it with a Blackstar HT1R head, so can anyone tell me what are your thoughts on that speaker? I play mainly thrash metal and hard rock with some blues and jazz in between. Another thing, can the HT1R head be used with a footswitch? I heard that you can't do that. Thank you.

Hi
The rocket 50 is it the 10" or 12" .

To me the CR-50 is very bright sounding and does not seem to like a lot of bass.

The CR-50 does sound good to me but just to bright sounding, with ISF to the left and then to the right you see that the bass just makes it turn to mud.

If you leave the ISF to the left - noon then you might like the sound.

I only play metal so I dont know if it would do jazz or blues.

No you can not use a foot switch with the HT-1RH. I think the HT-5 and up can.

How do you like it for metal? I tried it once, but I wasn't too satisfied; it couldn't provide the big deep chugga chugga tone.
