The Blackstar HT-DistX will transform the most civilized guitar amplifier into a fire-breathing, ultra high gain machine of filth and fury. Yeah, it’s that nasty. The HT-DISTX has been designed specifically for modern guitarists who demand high gain voltage valve tones for extreme, progressive, and other heavy styles. Thanks to a state-of-the-art design and use of a ECC83/12AX7 valve, all the dynamics of a premium valve amp are present and the distortion sounds completely natural and organic.
- Operates at 300V HT – True High Voltage DesignThe Blackstar HT-DISTX operates on a 300VDC anode supply voltage (H.T. voltage). This is the typical anode voltage used in traditional valve amplifier design. The circuit has 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. At this type of voltage the circuit will operate consistently over a full batch of valves.
- ISF Control -Everything from USA to UKBlackstar’s patented ISF control works with the Bass, Middle and Treble controls to give you access to infinite new sound possibilities from the USA to the UK and everywhere in-between. This fully interactive control allows you to infinitely adjust the response of the tone control network between any of the traditional voicings. In this way you can design your own sound and truly find the sound in your head.
- HT-DISTX Extreme Gain – the ultimate distortion pedalThe HT-DISTX is a no compromise, ultra high gain, filth machine. The tone has been benchmarked against the best high-gain valve amps in the world and will transform your mild mannered classic into a fire breathing monster.
- Speaker Emulated OutputBlackstar’s Emulated Output Feature sets a new benchmark design for pro direct recording sounds and the easiest way to get your valve tone to tape or disk.
- Rugged Design – Solidly built pedalsThe Blackstar HT-DISTX is built like a tank. 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.
- High Integrity Buffered BypassThe HT-DISTX’s buffered bypass signal means there are no problems presented by driving long cable runs or chains of other effects.
- Silent SwitchingOnly soft switching and a buffered bypass signal will give absolutely silent switching in high gain applications.
