The HT-DRIVE guitar pedal has dual cascaded, high voltage, triode stages which deliver gain from warm boost to screaming valve saturation. The unique 'A-Class' tone control cuts the fizz without making your 'backed-off' tone sound dull and lifeless. Add to this a no-compromise speaker emulated output and you have the ultimate overdrive pedal.
All the Blackstar pedals operate on 300VDC anode supply voltage (H.T. voltage).
High voltage valve design for true valve dynamics and feel.
This circuit was inspired by our research into the high frequency power amplifier response of Class A amps.
Most of the Blackstar pedals feature a fully specified speaker emulated output.
