Product Description

The Blackstar HT-DUAL offers the ultimate in high voltage valve distortion flexibility. Channel 1 has either Clean or Crunch modes so it can be used clean, as a boost or overdrive. Channel 2 gives distortion tones from super crunch right up to screaming lead. The unique switching operation will transform a single channel vintage amp into a three channel tone machine. The ISF control takes you from 'British Valve' to 'Modern American' and anywhere in between and the no compromise speaker emulated output lets you get it all down to tape or disk.

zZounds Expert Review
Featuring 2 channels with independent gain levels, this pedal harnesses the raunchy overdrive characteristics found in their amp line, including the vaunted ISF control. This feature lets you take your tone from classic British to modern American or any blend of the two with the twist of a knob, tripling the versatility of any amp you put it in front of. Not only that, this pedal also has an emulated speaker output, perfect for feeding directly into a PA or the front end of a recording interface for silent, tube-y recording. You can't power these with your standard 9v Boss adapter (thanks to the extra juice required to heat up that valve), but a power supply is included.

"Blackstar HT Dual - Massive Valve tone and all the distortion I'd ever need."
Sound: If you're after a full on tube amp sound with almost complete control over your tone, this would be the pedal. I've just sold my TC Nova Drive to get this and I feel there's no comparison. The Nova Drive was good, a little dark and noisy at high gain maybe, but the Black Star makes my little Vox AC4 sing and scream. It's like having my Marshall JCM2000/900 and Fender Hot Rod all i one pedal. Love It. Feature: The ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) is very impressive. It gives you access to either british or american amp tones..nice! I'm also very impressed with the tone of the EQ, it's able to shape the distortion tone more effectively than any distortion box i've known (including my amp heads). The pedal also has an emulated output which I prefer over my line 6 and Amplitube gear..however i'm a naturalist and think this pedal sounds best plugged into an miked amp. There's not much else on this pedal, apart from the great honking tube that gives you that mass of creamy overdive and distortion. Ease of Use: The pedal is very easy to use. Pretty much plug it in and off you go. Quality: All of the pots and switches feel rock solid, more than any other piece of equipment that I own (which is extensive). The casing look military grade. Awesome. Value: I've played with a lot of pedals and amps in my time. This is the first distortion pedal I've been truly happy with. It's well worth the asking price. Manufacturer Support: Not known, it's never gone wrong, nor do I expect it to. The Wow Factor: It's big and the tube glows (back lit LED i assume), everyone should have one. Overall: I've been searching for a great distortion pedal for years. This is the one i'm going to settle with. I really can't see any other distortion ever replacing it (even my TC Nova Drive didn't make the cut..and that's a great pedal ! )

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great tube-driven pedal"
Sound: This is a very good distortion pedal. The distortion is very warm and musical and I find the ISF switch very usable in obtaining a setting that works with my guitars, amps and playing style. The distortion can range from nice warm break-up to a great crunch to rectifier heaviness. Feature: The ISF feature is great. The EQ is very effective. Having a dual channel, tube based pedal in such a small footprint compared to the radial tri-mode or plexitube is great. The only downside is that it requires 22V DC which means you need to use the included power supply vs tap into something like the voodoo labs pedal power supply.
