PG's Shawn Hammond is On Location in Frankfurt, Germany, for the 2010 Musikmesse show where he visits the Blackstar Amplification booth. In this segment, we get to check out some of Blackstar's new HT-Effects pedals; Modulation, Delay and Reverb.
The Modulation is described as having a tone from gentle tremolo to roaring jet engine flange, it brings you all the musicality of the classic vintage effects pedals. For ease of use the Slow/Fast feature lets you adjust the modulation time of the eight different modulation effects while you are playing. The unique Saturation control then lets you add real valve compression and harmonics.
The Delay has eight different delays in one pedal and they can take you from vintage and multi-head tape delays to classic analog and linear full bandwidth effects and two loop modes as well. You can then add in real valve compression and harmonics using the unique Saturation control.
Finally, the Reverb can take you from your room to an arena via hall, plate, spring, gate and reverse-reverb effects. Valve compression and harmonics are added using the Dwell control, and you can switch the reverb time from short to long while you are playing.
