I'm going amplifier shopping tomorrow and after many many many many different considerations on amps the blackstar ht-5 is on my list of top priorities. My big question though is what tubescreamer pedal would go best with it? I'm a lead player and i'm going for the more american style tones from bands like avenged sevenfold, megadeth, trivium etc. Particularly that Synyster Gates / Chris Broderick like tone.

Note that i have no budget on what i would be spending on the pedal.

Thanks in advance.

Don't the Blackstars already have a tubescreamer built in?

You might want to look into Jet City, the 22 or whichever. Would get you a lot closer to A7X, IMO.

If you have no budget for the pedal, why not take that money and just get a better amp that would be more american voiced?

Because i have a budget for an amp son. It's not like there's gonna be a pedal that's thousands of dollars.



Waits for someone to show thousand dollar pedal

The new Blackstar HT-Metal pedal is probably a good choice?

Failing that a TS-9 all the way!

Blackstar HT5 uses diode clipping (not all tube), just FYI.

And Zacky Vengance uses Jet City IIRC, so if you like Avenged Sevenfold, you might consider one of those.
