All valve head guitar amps and valve combo guitar amps include a mixture of pre-amplifier tubes, power output valves and rectifier valves (or tubes in the USA). The typical life of guitar amplifier tubes is around 1000 hours. As the tubes all operate together, the performance of all the guitar amp tubes will degrade slowly with time used. To restore your valve amp to its best buy a full blackstar ht5 replacement tube set.
Buying a full guitar amplifier re-valve kit for your blackstar ht5 will ensure that your valve guitar amp will sound like it did when it was new. Most valve guitar amplifiers have matched replacement tubes in the power output circuit. It can be a false economy to buy a single valve and then adding it in to the valve guitar amp circuit. Depending on the guitar amplifier circuit it could include both matched pre-amplifier valves and matched power output valves in the circuit, check the manual. To buy guitar amp valves and tube sets use the links below. If unmatched valves are used in the amplifier power output circuit it is likely that the output sound will be poor. If the valves are matched with the same gain characteristics, they will draw the same current and cancel out any mains hum and other noise. If the tubes are not matched there will be a mismatch in the current drawn, resulting in hum and one valve getting much hotter than the others, reducing the life.
Buying a full guitar amplifier re-valve kit, or full tube replacement set, will ensure you have all the parts to restore your valve guitar amplifier to its best. Use the links above to buy the tubes you need for you blackstar ht5 amplifier and the links below to buy replacement guitar amplifier valves and tubes.
