I've tried the Blackstar HT-Dual pedal. It had good tones, but I really didn't like the fact that it's "hard" to use. Like you need to switch between clean and distortion, I think that if I go for a distortion pedal, my amp will have cleans good enough for my taste. So I'd just probably go for either HT-Drive or HT-Dist, depending on the amount of distortion needed. Of course there's the HT-DistX for those sounds of annihilation.

Just been looking at the blackstar distx sounds pretty good, but everything on youtube sounds crap!!

you don't *need* a tube pedal to push a tube amp.

Just sayin'.

If the amp's tube there's already enough tube stuff in there, it's still gonna sound tubey with a (good) ss overdrive.

In fact, maybe better than a tube pedal.

Plus a lot of those tube pedals seem to only really use tubes so they can say there's a tube in them. The majority of the circuitry is still solid state (which again is why if you're amp's already tube there's probably little point).
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
