shallmar's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" THE pedal distortion / overdrive"

Blackstar Amplification HT-Metal

has reviews it seems a fan of ocd Overtone has decided to spam the site to convert to his religion down the blackstar. it is time to have a normal review.

for short, is a pedal overdrive / distortion a lamp 12AX7 I think.

6 knobs, 2 channel, a clean / OD button ... heuuu ... it's already not bad? and ben when y'en more y'en yet. 2 knobs are multi, base running and the upper is independent. ca therefore has 11 buttons grind.

gain1/gain 2
clean button / OD
Bass / middle / treble
Level1 / 2

emulated output input.pour stick on the mixing desk.


No, not when we get information simple.mais a minimum, that a little itchy and we understand what it means OD, distortion, bass / treble / medium ca is now playing with.

the ISF knob is unreleased. it acts as a kind of its drive. in blackstar, they explain that it feels left fender, marshall and right.

ca and feels the output is not to look pretty. a dirty side, draft, and another while medium distorted. frankly, between ca has no interest, the variation is small, inconvenue following his guitar leaning.


ahh effects.

METAL all it is, it is extremely versatile. she can breathe a slight crunch as loud distortion, which would ruin any speaker. METAL concept is misleading, it is far from being confined to this genre, it just barely electrify a subtle clean to scream as the power chord palm mute dear to metalheads. Simply turn the knobs ...

it is the lamp connected to a fender champion with either an Epiphone or a Gibson Les Paul.


3 months that I have fun with.

I tried a big muff> too dirty, not versatile.
a badass MXR distortion> blah, it's an overdrive than anything else.
a boss OD2> too common.

I like:

the sensation of heat from the lamp.
full settings.
the ISF knob which characterizes the sound.
the DI output.
Its ability to trituration.

I do not like:

Its power supply 22 V con. any pedalboard power supply only supports ca.
It heats donf.
Size obese on the PB.
Its output level. Ca moderate to 7/10, and after ca screams. not enough delay.

nine is a sacred investment! OCCAZ ca becomes more affordable and better justified.

if I had the choice again?? I would take a non O. .. I kidding. I am fully satisfied with this choice. Not being metalheads I use anyway for its subtle adjustments crunch / OD, which gives the impression of even more discount lamps on the amps available, I do not spend.

a double system clean / od channels (1) od / distortion (2)

clean / od
od / distortion

bass / mid / treble

2 concentric knobs and level gain for channels 1 & 2

Yes a lamp 12AX7

in / out and emulated output


yes enough, the panel is clean enough off to the large distortion

For metal grain is not too suitable, the mxr Fullbore is more characteristic of this type of sound dug

This is a non-limited version of the series blackfire Gus G limited, it seemed that crunch, the blackfire had a little more personality and tone, beyond that, it is identical

you turn the knobs and that makes


the clean and crunch are not bad at all

Isf is a corrector nickname tone that never convinced me, it is not enough light or dark, it would change the grain it also even between uk / us!

I'm more skeptical about the bcp large distortion, which is when the gain augemente was a bit of a fuzz side and nothing really happens

Guitar only


2 months ago, initially it seemed not bad after I have a little disillusioned

The ambitious side od the metal seemed attractive

THE grain is fairly mid (like all products ht) not too defined, but not at all in swig restitution, which remains for me the same marketing scam that celèbres ToneLab vox,
some say it is even connected to anything!!

Large distos are those my least favorite
THE crunch is not bad, but frankly all take zvex band of rock and jam for genuine musicality and personality

R / p / q: say frankly that the massive food box 22v (300v voltage) and lamp suggests big arsenal, he did nothing of it must be noted that it remains pure and simple marketing and for 200 € this is not the model that will make me change my mind about the blackstar ht, but I (wanted to judge, but nothing has changed, on the contrary
THE good news is that the less than € 160 but it does not change the view!

no I do not do it again this choice is on again and I'm pretty amazed that most reviews are glowing except for a completely negative, and especially opinions .... so complacent, but no qualitative analysis ultimately ...

For the high gain must go ds heavy serious Effectrode eg.

Hardos174's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A monster gain and versatility!"

A distortion pedal lamp is actually serves tube!
I changed the original lamp (SOVTEK 12ax7wa) for a 12AX7 SYLVANIA "JHS" Long Black Plates 1959 and honestly it sending the splint!
The ISF feature is very effective, all the knobs are active at 100% and gives you extraordinary flexibility, especially with the ability to select three different modes (two foot) which is very well seen from the designers .. .


The different editions of the distortions are very effective, the grip is super fast and fairly quickly found his SON! 'Cause you have to be honest, this pedal has THE sound ...


The grain of the distortion is a real treat, I personally have not used the effect with the original lamp with a lamp but OUR sound quality is worthy of the best distortions on the market!
With this small block of plain metal you have under foot and it feels happily!
The lamp change is simply super directly in front, opening the guard, by blowing the security metal lamp and bringing out the tube with the tip of a knife, all delicately sour well , but it is doable without any technical difficulty! Do not go above board to dismantle printed on the back of the pedal circuits, it would be completely stupid ...


My overall rating for this effect is 4.5 / 5! The only thing I could fault it is the absence of a power supply with ground (useful when you start to get into the win with a powered 300V HT! Tube!) And the inability to control the switch clean / od foot ... But without it it's still a perfect effect at any point! It will fill all the big metalheads that anyone looking for a good distortion without wanting to sound mesa ... It is perfectly possible with this pedal to get a good sound Bluesy warm, or a dripping well Grunge distortion, not to mention sour sound favored by the Neo-metalheads!

StudioEpsilon's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent"

Blackstar Amplification HT-Metal
Effect available on this metal, distortion and even distortion!!

They are editable game, you play mostly on the tone of the distortion

This is a pedal lamp


The configuration is very simple

No need to book a youth alim the guitar is plugged and roll


No effect itself, but the distortion kicks ass and shows exemplary

I use my electric guitar, epiphone futura and Shecter demon 8 and the result is fantastic


I use it only for one day but the quality is

yes I used the X in blackstar dist equally excellent but the metal is one that must be taken

the advantage of this pedal is what is a lamp and the ISF setting that allows to adjust its sound has leisure

Very good value online report can even find a 145 euros.

And with the experience I would do without hesitation that choice because I had already had one.
Blackstar is of excellent quality and
