Blackstar's line of pedals are truly representative of one of Blackstar's main objectives — to take pedal design to previously unattainable levels. Blackstar's perpetual thirst for innovation is quite evident when delving into the design of these pedals, utilizing revolutionary, patented design to help players of all kinds achieve their intended goal; to find the sound in their heads.
Blackstar's award-winning valve-powered HT Pedals have changed the way musicians look at distortion, overdrive and boost pedals. The HT Pedals incorporate several unique design features including high voltage (300v) circuitry, an emulated speaker output that's ideal for direct recording and Blackstar's patented Infinite Shape Feature (ISF), a completely interactive control that allows for boundless tonal adjustments, delivering classic tone anywhere from USA to UK and anything in between, broadening your tonal horizons in ways like never before.
Blackstar's HT Effects Pedals offer a fresh new perspective on classic delay, reverb, and modulation effects by combining genuine valve design and high voltage circuitry (just as the other HT Pedals) with eight different types of delay, reverb and modulation and pure valve tone with Dwell/Saturation controls to adjust the amount of tube harmonics and compression present and features an LED light that changes from green to red depending on how hard you drive the tube.
Blackstar's LT Pedals offer a compact, pedalboard-friendly and lower cost alternative to their coveted valve-powered HT Pedal thanks to Blackstar's patented clipping circuit that emulates true valve response and tone with unparalleled accuracy. Additionally, the LT DIST, LT METAL and LT DUAL also comes equipped with Blackstar's patented ISF for enhanced tonal possibilities.
