Blackstar has made a huge splash on the amp world in recent years. They have made great sounding fantastically priced amps for the masses. The price is what is so amazing to me. The amp sounds so very good and to keep their prices for a multi-channel combo like this under $1000 is remarkable. Blackstar has effectively used a great design as well as superb marketing which has enabled them to produce a great quality and sounding amplifiers. Many touring and professional artists all over the globe are now turning towards Blackstar for their guitar amplifier needs. The have successfully taking a huge niche in the market over the last few years. To add to their prestige they have included a whole line of distortion pedals as well.

This pedal is almost a full preamp in a pedal form. This pedal has gain, bass, middle, treble, ISF, and level. This is pretty much the exact same control knob front panel as many of their amps. This has a speaker simulated output which is also on their regular amps. So this pedal is basically a preamp peal. This pedal takes what the regular HT-Dist and brings it to a whole new level. That pedal had some gain to it but this one is just completely over the top!


* Genuine valve design
* Operates at 300V HT

If you are looking for the ultra mega loaded distortion pedal well this is it. This pedal has more gain that really anyone would ever need. However, I know there are some guys out there that can't get enough gain. Well then this is the pedal for something who just can't get enough gain.

This pedal is basically a preamps. It has all the control knobs as any other Blackstar amp would have. It also has a simulated speaker output for going direct into a recording session. This pedal is essentially a foot pedal preamp. Not a preamp box that boost your signal like a Boss Fa-1, but an actual preamp like a Triaxes or ADA MP-1. This will boost your signal or give you ultimate in uber metal gain distortion.


You can pick these peals up new for right at around $199, which is not bad for a great sounding preamp pedal. I would recommend this pedal to anyone who has a clean amp and wants a super ultra mega load distortion high gain tone out of that amp. You get a great sounding tone and for not a whole lot of money. This is one of the most forceful and ultra gained out pedal that I have ever heard before.
