The HT-DUAL pedal operates on a 300V DC anode supply voltage (H.T. voltage). This is the same used in traditional valve amplifier design and means the circuit has all the compression and distortion characteristics associated with a true valve amp design and therefore 'cleans up' in the same way when you back off the volume on your guitar.
The 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.

The HT-DUAL features two switchable channels for flexability. Channel 1 has either Clean or Crunch modes so it can be used clean, as a boost or overdrive. Channel 2 gives distortion tones from super crunch right up to screaming lead. The unique switching operation will transform a single channel vintage amp into a three channel tone machine.
The Blackstar emulated output design is a new benchmark for pro direct recording. This no-compromise design makes it easy to get your tone disk and tape. You can also use it to run a line out to a PA.
The unique switching operation transforms the HT-DUAL into a three channel tone machine, without the need to learn how to tap dance. Whether you're in bypass or on either channel, you're only ever a single tap away from any other selection. Many hours of research showed us that only soft switching and a buffered bypass signal will give absolutely silent switching in high gain applications.
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.
The HT-DUAL's buffered bypass signal means there are no problems presented by driving long cable runs or chains of other effects.
