Gear Reviews

Blackstar HT Metal Pedal awarded “Top Gear”

TopGuitar is proud to announce that the HT Metal Pedal from Blackstar had been reviewed for the September issue of the magazine and received a “Top Gear” editors’ award this month.

Below are some excerpts from a successful review by gear department editor Grzegorz Ufnal, which may serve as reasons for the award:

“Thanks to its endorsers, Blackstar has made itself an opinion of a heavy sounding gear manufacturer and such effect like the HT Metal Pedal can be a great representation of the company’s capabilities.”

“HT Metal is equipped with a vacuum tube that not only shines nicely, but most of all it works and really influences the tone. (…) The internal circuit is made and tuned to provide you with a serious portion of gain.”

“The strength of HT effects is their simplicity and functionality – what else do you need? Mastering the whole unit takes you literally a minute!”
