Blackstar HT-DIST Guitar Pedal B-Stock
This item is being offered as an ex-demo model. The pedal has never been pre-owned and is supplied in the original box with the full manufacturers warranty. It may have been demoed a couple of times and may have the odd very minor mark. The box is faded from where it was on display in sunlight in our shop window. Checked over and serviced by Blackstar 12/06/17.
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.

- Cascaded valve gain stages
- Responds like a valve amp
- Unique enhanced tone controls
- Patented Infinite Shape Feature (ISF)
- Fully equipped for stage or studio
- Speaker emulated output
- High integrity buffered bypass
- Power supply included
- Silent switching
By allowing infinite adjustment over the characteristics of the HT-DIST's tone control network, the patent-applied-for ISF circuit allows you to effectively design your own tone and find the sound in your head.
OPERATES AT 300V HT
The HT pedal operates on a 300V DC anode supply voltage (High Tension voltage). This is the same used in traditional valve amplifier design and means the circuit has the 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.
Many hours of research showed us that only soft switching and a buffered bypass signal will give absolutely silent switching in high gain applications.
SPEAKER EMULATED OUTPUT
The Blackstar emulated output design is a new benchmark for pro direct recording. This no-compromise design makes it easy to get your tone to disk and tape. You can also use it to run a line out to a PA.
The ISF control works in conjunction with the Tone control. It allows you to choose the exact tone signature you prefer. Fully CCW is a more American characteristic with a tight bottom end and more aggressive middle, and fully CW is a British characteristic which is more 'woody' and less aggressive.
