Blackstar HT-METAL High Gain Tube Distortion

A Full Stack's-worth of Gain in One Hot Pedal!

Plug into the Blackstar HT-Metal distortion pedal for outrageous high-gain tube tone that's incredibly responsive too. The secret of the HT-Metal's high-gain mojo is a series of cascaded tube gain stages that go from subtly overdriven tones all the way to searing metal mayhem. And operating at a full 300 volts means the HT-Metal has a ton of headroom and responds very dynamically to your playing. Factor in Blackstar's patented ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) for tone shaping, silent switching between channels, and the speaker-emulated direct output, and you've got a seriously flexible front end for your guitar with the Blackstar HT-Metal distortion pedal.

High-gain done right

Blackstar knows that just because you want lots of gain, that doesn't mean you don't care about dynamics or tone. The HT-Metal pedal uses real tube gain stages, cascaded to give the feel and response of a real tube amplifier - with the needle pinned, so to speak. It's got two channels, each with their own gain controls, so you can set up complementary tones easily. And because it works at true high voltage (300V!), it's got the headroom to capture the dynamics and nuances of your playing.

Enhanced tone shaping

Just like most Blackstar products, the HT-Metal pedal sports the ISF tone-shaping feature. ISF lets you alter the character between a British flavor and an American flavor. In addition, you get a three-band EQ for more traditional tone shaping.

Speaker emulated output

Like most Blackstar pedals, the HT-Metal pedal has a speaker-emulated output for direct recording, or connecting directly to a sound system. Thanks to the powerful gain stages and tone shaping features, the HT-Metal is really more like a high-gain preamplifier for your guitar - it's a solid front end for recording direct, especially in situations when you simply can't put a microphone in front of a fully-cranked metal stack.

Blackstar HT-Metal Distortion Pedal Features:
  • Two-channel, high-gain tube distortion pedal with tone shaping and speaker emulated output
  • Cascaded gain stages provide the response and feel of a tube amp
  • Infinite Shape Feature alters the tone of the gain stages for an easily customized sound
  • 3-band EQ for additional tonal control
  • Operates at 300V for ultra-high headroom and exceptional dynamics
  • Speaker-emulated output is perfect for recording direct, or plugging into a sound system
