“Blackstar's new HT-Metal valve pedal is a no-compromise, two channel, ultra high gain filth machine. The tone has been benchmarked against the best high-gain valve amps in the world and will transform even a mild mannered classic into a fire breathing monster.”
It certainly looks the business and knowing Blackstar it will likely be a far more flexible affair than its super-heavy styling would lead you to believe. Check out Total Guitar issue 224 (on sale now) for our full review.
Essential tech specs:
Two-channel valve distortion pedal with an ECC83 preamp tube, three-band EQ, clean/OD switch (for selecting gain level on channel one) and speaker-emulated output.
