Description

The HT-METAL valve distortion pedal is a no-compromise, two channel, ultra high gain, filth machine. Powered by true 300V high-voltage valve circuitry, this pedal offers cascaded tube gain stages and authentic tube amp response. Each ultra-high gain channel offers its own gain and volume controls. Channel 1 is equipped with a Clean/Overdrive switch. The three-band EQ includes Blackstar's patented ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) control, which re-voices the entire tone stack from British Heavy Metal to US High Gain. No compromises, no excuses, no apologies - stay Metal!

The HT-METAL pedal operates on a 300V DC anode supply voltage (H.T. voltage). This is the same used in traditional valve amplifier design and means the circuit has all the compression and distortion characteristics associated with a true valve amp design and therefore 'cleans up' in the same way when you back off the volume on your guitar.

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 Metal takes gain to the next level. Powered by true 300V high-voltage vacuum tube circuitry this pedal offers cascaded tube gain stages and authentic tube amp response. Two channels and three modes provide extreme versatility. Each ultra-high gain channel offers its own gain and volume controls. Additionally, Channel 1 is equipped with a Clean/Overdrive switch. The three-band EQ (Bass, Middle, Treble) is tied to the patented ISF (Infinite Shape Feature), which re-voices the entire tone stack for an expansive tonal range.

The Blackstar emulated output design is a new benchmark for pro direct recording. This no-compromise design makes it easy to get your tone disk and tape. You can also use it to run a line out to a PA.

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

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

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.
