The HT-METAL valve distortion pedal is a no-compromise, two channel, ultra high gain, filth machine. Powered by true 300V high-voltage valve circuitry, this pedal offers cascaded tube gain stages and authentic tube amp response. Each ultra-high gain channel offers its own gain and volume controls. Channel 1 is equipped with a Clean/Overdrive switch. The three-band EQ includes Blackstar’s patented ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) control, which re-voices the entire tone stack from British Heavy Metal to US High Gain. No compromises, no excuses, no apologies – stay Metal!
ISF (Infinite Shape Feature)
The ISF control works in conjunction with the Bass, Middle and
Treble controls. 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.
See illustration below.
We recommend that to start with the ISF is set to half way and
the Bass, Middle and Treble are set to taste. Then try gradually
adjusting the ISF CW and CCW until you find the sound you prefer.
Speaker Emulated Output
This output emulates the tonal characteristics of a guitar speaker
cabinet and provides a natural valve overdrive tone for connection
to a recording device or mixing desk. Always use a good quality
screened guitar lead.
