Blackstar HT-Dist Tube Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal
By allowing infinite adjustment over the characteristics of the HT-DIST guitar pedal's tone control network, the Patented ISF circuit allows you to effectively design your own tone and find the sound in your head. Add to this the dynamics of the high voltage valve design and a no compromise speaker emulated output and this pedal is a classic amongst modern distortions.
Operates at 300V HT
All the Blackstar pedals operate on 300VDC anode supply voltage (H.T. voltage). This is the typical anode voltage used in traditional valve amplifier design. The circuit has headroom associated with a true valve design and will 'clean up' accordingly. The pedal will exhibit the compression and distortion characteristics associated with a true valve design. At this type of voltage the circuit will operate consistently over a full batch of valves.
The patented ISF control works with the Bass, Middle and Treble controls to give you access to infinite new sound possibilities from the USA to the UK and everywhere in-between. This fully interactive control allows you to infinitely adjust the response of the tone control network between any of the traditional voicings. In this way you can design your own sound and truly find the sound in your head.

Speaker Emulated Output
This is a new benchmark design for pro direct recording sounds and the easiest way to get your valve tone to tape or disk.
All Blackstar pedals are subjected to extensive laboratory and road testing to ensure that they are truly uncompromising in terms of reliability, quality and above all tone. You can throw them in the van and take them on the road and not have to worry.
High Integrity Buffered Bypass
The HT-DIST's buffered bypass signal means there are no problems presented by driving long cable runs or chains of other effects.
Many hours of research showed us that only soft switching and a buffered bypass signal will give absolutely silent switching in high gain applications.
