Tube metal goodness is taken to the extreme in the Blackstar HT Metal Pedal! The 'metal-est' distortion pedal yet in the Blackstar HT range, this dual channel pedal offers a stepped gain stage for everything from "a bit of distortion" to "oh my, that's a lot of distortion" when you get up to the super high gain modes of Channel two. True high voltage tube circuitry, and also featuring Blackstar's patented ISF technology, the HT Metal will cater for people who like big mid scoops, as well as the more old-school metal full-on tones.  

The Blackstar HT Metal Pedal does not hold back, and nor should you!

Here's what Blackstar say about the HT-Metal Pedal

The HT-METAL valve distortion pedal is a no-compromise, two channel, ultra high gain, filth machine. Powered by true 300V high-voltage valve circuitry, this pedal offers cascaded tube gain stages and authentic tube amp response. Each ultra-high gain channel offers its own gain and volume controls. Channel 1 is equipped with a Clean/Overdrive switch. The three-band EQ includes Blackstar's patented ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) control, which re-voices the entire tone stack from British Heavy Metal to US High Gain. No compromises, no excuses, no apologies – stay Metal!

    Okayish. Could be better.

    This is a fantastic pedal!

    I use it with my Marshall JMD-1 half stack and it sounds amazing, it can handle everything from a nice low gain tone to extreme tube filth!

    If you can´t afford a decent tube amp, buy this pedal.

    Definetly the best metal distortion pedal I have ever had. Always have been boss mt-2 fan but since I've tried Blackastar I've changed my mind. The sound is awsome for a pedal and it comes with power suply which is plus. Must have for all metal players with limited cash I'd say.

    Excellent distortion pedal, wide range of drive. It has breathed new life into my old transistor amp. It's comparatively expensive but feels durable and solidly built. A power supply is included.

    It's the best distortion pedal I've ever had! Very powerful and versatile. Really awesome!

    Great Pedal! Very organic tube tones & many options for different sounds.

    Works well with my G System & Carvin & Mesa Heads.

    The ability to switch the 2 channels remotely would be a useful feature though.

    Sounds very transparent when in bypass mode too.
