  • New Blackstar keeps dying

    I just received an HT20 and it keeps going silent on me. It will play for 5-10 minutes and then the volume slowly fades to nothing. I replaced the preamp tubes and it still dies. I have the back off and noticed that when the amp was working the power tubes were glowing like normal. After it went silent I looked again neither power tube was glowing.

    Could it be one or both power tubes? I could see maybe one of them not glowing but both? I don't have any extras to experiment with.

    Could it be something more serious than just tubes?

    I'm wondering if I should just send it back?

      I ended up accidentally saying it to my girlfriend at the time. I said "Someone told me that Ben got with a really fat girl and he titty-****************ed her"

        Definitely send it back. I've seen these burn out the board after that exact same complaint. Send it back as soon as possible and get a replacement

              It sounded pretty awesome too.

              Oh well. I might hold off on getting another one until I can demo a Jet City.

                        Had the EXACT same problem with a 60 soloist. Faded in, and I got nothing but fizz when I really dug into the strings. Changed tubes, and the fuse - nothing. I didn't waste any time in sending it back.
                        Ah, Dickhammer.
