The HT-REVERB pedal operates on a 300V DC anode supply voltage (High Tension 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 HT-REVERB can take you from your room to an arena via hall, plate, spring, gate and reverse reverb effects. Each effect can be altered using the Time, Tone and Dwell controls.
By adjusting the drive to the high voltage valve circuit in the effect side chain, the Dwell control affects the amount of valve compression and harmonics in the effect.
The HT-REVERB features manual and short/long modes for maximum playing flexibility. The manual mode is a time control that sets the reverb decay length. The short/long mode toggles between preset short and long times for live flexibility.
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-REVERB's buffered bypass signal means there are no problems presented by driving long cable runs or chains of other effects.
