The line of Blackstar HT pedals can now be purchased at Guitar Center USA stores
Northampton, UK (April 3, 2008) -- Blackstar''s series of HT pedals are now available in the U.S.
All the pedals feature true high voltage (300V) circuitry and are packed with innovations and tone. The patent-applied-for ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) tone shaping was made to redefine the tonal expectations of guitarists. Each pedal is capable of live or in-studio environments.
The HT-BOOST (Valve Boost) has a high voltage gain circuit so you won’t lose any dynamics or tone. It also has an all-valve cut and boost tone section and a high level output, which is specially designed to drive your valve amp hard.
The HT-DRIVE has dual cascaded, high voltage, triode stages which deliver gain from warm boost to screaming valve saturation. The DRIVE is fully equipped for stage or studio with speaker-emulated output, high-integrity buffered bypass and silent switching.
By allowing infinite adjustment over the characteristics of the HT-DIST’s tone control network, the patent-applied-for ISF circuit allows you to design your own tone. The DIST also has the dynamic high voltage valve design and a speaker-emulated output.
The HT-DISTX is an ultra-high gain filth machine. The ISF control takes you from "Classic British" to "Modern American," and the no-compromise speaker-emulated output lets you get it all down to tape or disk.
The HT-DUAL (left) offers high voltage valve distortion flexibility. Channel 1 has either "Clean" or "Crunch" modes. Channel 2 gives distortion tones from super crunch to screaming lead. The unique switching operation will transform a single channel vintage amp into a three-channel tone machine. The pedal has ISF control and the no compromise speaker emulated output lets you get it all down to tape or disk.
The HT pedals are available from all Guitar Center Platinum stores now.
