BLackstar has been steady the last few years building high quality amps as well as very consumer budgeted amps. They have amps for every type of player and every time of musical situation. They have some of the best sounding amplifiers on the market right now. NOw they are better equipping guitar players with very useful and effective distortion pedals. They have taken their ISF control knob and their award winning preamp design and put it into a pedal.

This pedal has two boosts in one pedal. This is booster pedal and also a distortion pedal that both work independently of one another and can each be switched on and off or used at the same time.


* Genuine valve design
* Operates at 300V HT
* Cascaded valve gain stages
* Responds like a valve amp
* 2 channel operation
* Clean, Crunch & Lead modes
* Unique switching operation

* Unique enhanced tone controls
* Exclusive Infinite Shape Feature (ISF)
* Fully equipped for stage or studio
* Speaker emulated output
* High integrity buffered bypass
* Power supply included
* Silent switching


This will make you have a three channel amp or it can make you get your clean amp to a distortion zone and then have a boost for solos or you can have one mega distortion channel with both boosts going at the same time. There are so many possibilities with this pedal that is makes it fun to explore your tones and find what fits you for your personal needs.

The tone of this pedal is very good. It sound like the distortion boxes that BLackstar already carries and only has one foot switch. Plus this pedal has the speaker emulated output for going direct into a PA system or to a recording session. This pedal can really do it all as preamp foot pedal. The tone is fantastic and I hate distortion pedals.


You can find these pedals new for right at around $199, which is a great price for two pedals in one. This can be simply a booster pedal or a distortion box or two booster pedals or two distortion boxes. This is a very versatile pedal. The tone is what separates this pedal from the rest of the competition. The tone comes form that famous and useful Blackstar tone that many of thier amps have. I would recommend this pedal to anyone trying to get their sound down and need a few extra tools in one to nail don their tone.
