Blackstar got new tubes

Just put new tung-sol and JJ tubes in my blackstar ht100. Figured i'd do a recording.

Note: I wasn't trying to stun anybody with this playing (as you can probably tell :P ), just showing off the amp's amazing sound for little dough!

Gear Used:

PRS Special > Polytune >Ibanez TS9> Xotic BB Preamp > EB Volume > Front of Blackstar HT100

Blackstar HT100 Loop > Eventide timefactor > TCE Corona Chorus > Strymon Bluesky

Blackstar > Mesa boogie Recto 2x12

Mic'd up by an SM57 (on axis) using a Presonus Audiobox USB interface into Logic Pro 9.

Re: Blackstar got new tubes

That amp sound awesome.

What position you used with the tubes?
I mean V1, V2, V3... and what tube? Tung sol in V1 or JJ in V1? What tube did you used in V3?

Sounds great man.

I use my Ht-100 with a JJ in V1, Tung sol in V2 and a electro harmonix 12au7 in V3. Is a High gain monster with an awesome clean channel now... hehehe..
