Blackstar's HTMETAL100H 100W head delivers on what every metal head needs: 100W of tube-powered goodness, mountains of gain, killer tone, useful features and, well, it's black. Black is cool.
The HTMETAL100H features three footswitchable channels - Clean, Overdrive 1 and Overdrive 2 - and master controls for Volume, Presence Resonance and Reverb. The overdrive channels share knobs for Treble, Middle, Bass and ISP - Blackstar's patented Infinite Shape Feature that gives infinite adjustment over your tone characteristics. The overdrive channels also have independent volume and gain controls for different distortion tones, or for a solo volume boost. The Clean channel has independent Treble, Bass and Volume controls, as well as a Voice switch to choose between "British Class-A" and "Dynamic US" tones. The four-button foot switch controls each of the three channels and an on/off for the digital Reverb.
The big punch behind 100W of high-gain glory comes through an all-tube design made to melt faces on stage. The HTMETAL100H houses two ECC83, one ECC82 and four 6L6 tubes to push huge amounts of air with your favorite external cabinet.
It can't all be meat and potatoes. The METAL100H features a digital reverb with a Dark/Bright switch, FX loop with +4dBV/-10dBV level switch, speaker-emulated output with 1x12" and 4x12" voicings and footswitchable volume boost when using the optional FS-4 footswitch to cut through the mix.
