HT Metal

HT Metal Overview

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!

Further Info

  • Overdrive and Super Gain

    The HT Metal takes gain to the next level. Powered by true 300V high-voltage vacuum tube circuitry this pedal offers cascaded tube gain stages and authentic tube amp response. Two channels and three modes provide extreme versatility. Each ultra-high gain channel offers its own gain and volume controls. Additionally, Channel 1 is equipped with a Clean/Overdrive switch. The three-band EQ (Bass, Middle, Treble) is tied to the patented ISF (Infinite Shape Feature), which re-voices the entire tone stack for an expansive tonal range.

    ISF Control

    The ISF control works in conjunction with the Tone control. 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.

    Operates at 300V HT

    The HT pedal operates on a 300V DC anode supply voltage (High Tension voltage). This is the same used in traditional valve amplifier design and means the circuit has the 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.

    Silent Switching

    Many hours of research showed us that only soft switching and a buffered bypass signal will give absolutely silent switching in high gain applications.

    Speaker Emulated Output

    The Blackstar emulated output design is a new benchmark for pro direct recording. This no-compromise design makes it easy to get your tone to disk and tape. You can also use it to run a line out to a PA.
