The HT-Dual, pure valve distortion pedal from Blackstar is an absolute monster. Powered by an ECC83 preamp tube, the HT Dual can provide either a subtle crunch or boost to a sweltering lead tone.
The amount of gain in this pedal is seemingly never ending.
This large stompbox boasts two separate channels each with its own Gain and Level controls allowing for a rhythm tone and a completely separate lead tone that are switchable through two footswitches. The two channels share a 3-band EQ and the ISF control.
The controls available on the pedal are ‘Gain 1’, ‘Gain 2’, ‘Bass’, ‘Middle’, ‘Treble’, ‘ISF’, ‘Level 1’ and ‘Level 2’. Also on the HT-Dual is a switch to choose between crunch or clean on channel one.
The HT-Dual features the legendary ‘ISF’ (Infinite Shape Feature) control which is truly an amazing innovation from Blackstar.
The ‘ISF’ control allows the user to choose between the tonal qualities of a USA type amplifier or a UK type amplifier, consequently enabling you to choose between a massive range of sounds and tonal differences.
The ‘ISF’ is a great feature for musicians to create their own unique sound as there are so many different sounds that the control can render.
Blackstar have added an emulated output to this pedal creating functionality for silent recording or plugging into a mixing console for live sound. Responding like a true valve amp, there are many options of how to use this pedal.
The Dual comes with its own unique power adapter as it needs extra power for its valve stages. Blackstar provide a 1 year warranty which is upgradeable via an included form to 3 years.
The HT-Dual is extremely versatile, rugged and hosts a bunch of outstanding features that would sound great through any amp or in any recording set up. A great addition to any pedal board.
