Description

The HT-DISTX guitar pedal is a no compromise, ultra high gain, filth machine. The tone has been benchmarked against the best high-gain valve amps in the world and will transform your mild mannered classic into a fire breathing monster. The Patented ISF control takes you from 'Classic British' to 'Modern American' and anywhere in between and the no compromise speaker emulated output lets you get it all down to tape or disk.

All the Blackstar pedals operate on 300VDC anode supply voltage (H.T. voltage). This is the typical anode voltage used in traditional valve amplifier design. The circuit has headroom associated with a true valve design and will 'clean up' accordingly. The pedal will exhibit the compression and distortion characteristics associated with a true valve design. At this type of voltage the circuit will operate consistently over a full batch of valves.

The patented ISF control works with the Bass, Middle and Treble controls to give you access to infinite new sound possibilities from the USA to the UK and everywhere in-between. This fully interactive control allows you to infinitely adjust the response of the tone control network between any of the traditional voicings. In this way you can design your own sound and truly find the sound in your head.

The HT-DISTX is a no compromise, ultra high gain, filth machine. The tone has been benchmarked against the best high-gain valve amps in the world and will transform your mild mannered classic into a fire breathing monster.

This is a new benchmark design for pro direct recording sounds and the easiest way to get your valve tone to tape or disk.

All Blackstar pedals are subjected to extensive laboratory and road testing to ensure that they are truly uncompromising in terms of reliability, quality and above all tone. You can throw them in the van and take them on the road and not have to worry.

The HT-DISTX's buffered bypass signal means there are no problems presented by driving long cable runs or chains of other effects.

Many hours of research showed us that only soft switching and a buffered bypass signal will give absolutely silent switching in high gain applications.

Manufacture
Blackstar

In 2004 four friends, all bandmates, were looking for a new challenge. Having worked together for years at the highest levels of the amp designing industry, their dream was to create new and innovative guitar amplifiers and pedals that would be the ultimate tools for self expression. Having spent two and a half years doing intensive technical research in a garden shed in Northampton England, the first Blackstar products were ready and in March 2007, Blackstar was officially launched at the Frankfurt Musik Messe. Since then we have moved from the garden shed to our own premises, which has a purpose built lab and studio and we've been lucky enough to add some amazingly talented people to our team. Eight years on, we have been on a remarkable journey and been privileged to meet some incredible people from all over the world and call them our friends. From artists like Gus G (Ozzy Osbourne/Firewind), Neal Schon (Journey), Silenoz (Dimmu Borgir) and James Dean Bradfield (Manic Street Preachers), to the many players that support us and come and meet us at shows. Since those early days we have continued to grow as a company, but one thing remains true. We're all musicians and are truly passionate about what we do - making great guitar amps for players around the world.
