HT Metal Valve Distortion



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.
