Anybody have a Blackstar HT5? What tubes are you using? I bought an Electro-Harmonics 12BH7 for the power section and it sounded horrible. I put the Tungsol back in but it is short on life. Anybody have a line on different manufacturers of 12BH7 tubes? I'm not finding much out there.

I have never seen one offered. I don't think they even make them. All I find is EH or NOS which means whatever brand they can scare up. I guess I will spin the NOS wheel and see what I get.

I find it amazing that any company would design an amp based on a power tube that is hard to find, or worse yet, design it so that it doesn't sound good with the only current manufactured new tubes.

Very cool. Thanks. Unfortunately, my HT5R combo has developed a problem. It seems that many were made with a faulty board that causes two main resistors to fry. Lots of complaints. Glad nobody bought several amps that I had for sale because I mainly used the Blackstar.
