The HT-DISTX is described simply as an "ultra high gain, filth machine," which should be all you need to hear to know this pedal is exactly what you need to nail those gnarly '80s distortion sounds.

Whether you're looking to add some glam-metal sleaze to your sound or want to go on a full-on thrash attack, the HT-DISTX from Blackstar is a solid, reliable pedal that will give you top-notch distortion sounds every time.

Featuring genuine valve design, the HT-DISTX also responds like a valve amp, giving you some of the best speaker-emulated output on the market. Along with controls for Gain, Bass, Middle, Treble and Drive, the HT-DISTX features the patented Infinite Shape Feature, which lets you cover tones ranging from classic British tube amps to hefty, modern solid states.
