Blackstar Amplification's HT-Boost is a unique boost pedal for electric guitar and is best suited for use with tube guitar amps. The pedal is super high voltage at 300 V and has 1/4" connections for input and both a high and low output. It also comes with it's own power supply and contains a valve tube with two gain stages for a serious level of boosting capabilities. It's not a rackable unit as it's a stomp box.


Manipulating the Blackstar Amplification HT-Boost isn't going to be hard for users. The controls couldn't be more simple as it just has knobs for boost, bass, and treble. This is really the kind of pedal you put in the front of your chain and let it work it's magic. You do have a few controls here, but again, the pedal kind of just does it's thing. No manual should be needed...


What Blackstar Amplification HT-Boost does for your tone is simply incredible. I recently tried out this pedal along with my Fender Jazzmaster and '76 Fender Twin Reverb and this thing can really work wonders. You can definitely get some overdrive with it, but I think it's best as just an overall tone booster to add thickness to your sound. You can use it as a more traditional boost if you want, but I think once you hear the sound with it engaged that it's going to be hard to turn off!


The Blackstar Amplification HT-Boost is one of the single most powerful pedals that I've used to date in terms of changing your overall sound. It's not cheap, but if you're a tone-meister looking for a serious boost to your overall sound, this is going to help you out a great deal. It's definitely best used with tube amps, but I would imagine it would help to add a tube sound to a solid state amp as well, although I haven't tested this theory since I've only used it with my Twin. This pedal is an absolute beast and is one that every professional or semi-professional guitarist should check out.
