i think it's got even more solid state then the last one?

and more digital stuff too.
Prs se Holcomb is the answer

And A 12" Speaker. Dont Forget That. It Totally Justifys The Even More Solidstateness Of The Amp.

Don't you guys know that all tone is in the fingers? If it doesn't sound like t00bZ you must have solid state fingers.

Lol @ this thread. I got my HT5R for really cheap (music store owner connections) and I thought I wouldn't like it due to all the HT-5 hate.

I ****ing love this amp. The 12 inch Blackbird 50 speakers actually sound really good. Infinitely better than the 10'' 'Celestions' in the older models. The clean channel isn't mind blowing, but it's definitely good. The Overdrive channel is way better than I thought it would be, too. I don't play "super neive 15 year old brutal metalcore" music, so I don't NEED truckloads of gain, but it's definitely there. Especially with an OD pedal boost. It doesn't SOUND solid state, and it reacts really well to my picking and cleans up with the volume rolled back. The OD channel is also really smooth. Not "ice picky" at all.

I can't really think of anything I'd want to improve on the amp besides the clean channel headroom. And even that isn't nearly as bad as people make it out to be. Unless you have the volume on 9 or 10, it stays clean.

^ Yeah I hated my Vypyr too. That's why I got the HT-5r. It's infinitely, INFINITELY, better.
