I can't really give completly true advice on some OD pedals that i haven't tried out yet, so it hard for me to help you out. I have been able to play before i forget using my ts9, but i don't know if that ahs enough gain for your taste. I play mostly a7x, bfmv, and three days grace using the ts9.


Thanks, i think it will work with the ZW-44 because it really has enough gain to turn a clean channel into a mid-gain distortion so it should be able to boost a overdrive channel into high-gain territory. Unfortunately i can try it out as there is only 1 shop in the NSW area that i know sells them but the only pedals they stock are Behringer, and im not going Behringer.

True they could have an od in front. I didn't read all of the comments on the video to see if they said either way. Not sure on the necro solo tone, never listened to them tbh. I was just wondering if it could cover 80's type stuff, rush, vh, boston etc... Sounds like it could but I don't use as much gain as evh really.

Wow they rip ars. I'm a believer that a lot of tone is in the fingers, if you can play like that, you can sound like that with almost any gear. Listening carefully his solo tone is pretty dry, there is something going on there at times but not so much that it hurts the clarity of the notes. Nice licks.

i can play most of the sweep tap picking and alternate picking stuff, but the string skipping, 5 notes/per string stuff kills me.

apparently they use engl se670 amps but they're like 2 grand for the head

You could probably get a semi-convincing tone out of a mandolin if that's the case, congrats and keep it up.

For what it is, an affordable low wattage tube amp, it's hard to beat the HT-5.

I'm 99% sure that clip is all HT-5 as I can get that kinda chugga outta mine too.

The blackstar HT-5 is highly versatile and can/will take in almost any pedal you give it. It can cover early 80s, but anything with more gain is either going to be shotty or you'll be in the need of an OD.

would a ht daul do to keep the tone sounding 100% normal

EDIT: would King Diamond / Andy LaRoques tone be achievable without an OD?

I haven't really tried out any of those tones, and i kinda feel stupid for asking this, but what genre are they?

And with the ht dual, it should keep it normal, but there are no guarantees since i haven't tried it out first hand.

I don't know if it is a ht dual or just the ht distortion. Either way, one of them are in the head already as the pre-amp.

The head uses the preamp from the HT-Dual pedal.

May be a good idea to try. And you're probably right because i haven't used blackstar's pedals enough to really know a huge amount about them.
