The Sound In Your Head
Blackstar say: "By allowing infinite adjustment over the characteristics of the HT-DIST’s tone control network, the patentapplied-for ISF circuit allows you to effectively design your own tone and find the sound in your head. Add to this the dynamics of the high voltage valve design and a no compromise speaker emulated output and this pedal is a classic amongst modern distortions."
Operates At 300V HT
The HT 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 the headroom associated with a true valve design and will 'clean up' accordingly. The pedal will exhibit the compression and distortion characteristics associated with a true valve design.
Many hours of research showed us that only soft switching and a buffered bypass signal will give absolutely silent switching in high gain applications.
Speaker Emulated Output
The Blackstar emulated output design is a new benchmark for pro direct recording. This no-compromise design makes it easy to get your tone to disk and tape. You can also use it to run a line out to a PA.
The ISF control works in conjunction with the Tone control. It allows you to choose the exact tone signature you prefer. Fully CCW is a more American characteristic with a tight bottom end and more aggressive middle, and fully CW is a British characteristic which is more ‘woody’ and less aggressive.
Having already well established themselves with their iconic Ampliers, these pure valve powered pedals certainly live up to the Blackstar name in both form and uncompromising function.
