Blackstar HT-Blackfire – The HT-BLACKFIRE is the first artist signature product by Blackstar, developed with influential guitarist Gus G. (Ozzy Osbourne, Firewind). Gus’s instructions to the Blackstar design engineers was to produce “the ultimate heavy metal distortion pedal”. The HT-Blackfire is a two channel, valve-driven, metal distortion pedal.
Gus approached the Blackstar R&D team with the aim of producing the ultimate heavy metal valve distortion pedal. After many months of listening tests, the HT-Blackfire was born.
The HT-BLACKFIRE is a dual channel valve metal distortion pedal. The channels are named after the fan-favorite Firewind track ‘The Fire And The Fury.’ The ‘Fire’ channel delivers a high gain classic distortion, while the ‘Fury’ channel takes you to screaming lead and beyond. Other features include an ECC83 valve, patent-applied-for ISF control, independent Gain and Volume controls for each channel and an industry-standard speaker emulated out.
The HT-Blackfire features a black finish, orange and red LEDs, black grille and Blackstar-designed Gus G. logo; the HT-BLACKFIRE looks as serious as it sounds. Limited to just 1,000 pieces worldwide, each pedal includes a certificate of authenticity signed by Gus G and an exclusive Gus trading card. Price: $299
