Price paid: $ 29

Purchased from: top40powertrio

Ease of Use: Easy to use. Great sound, no noise and a full range from boost to metal. American to British. I gave this an overall 10. Based on it was a store demo barely used I paid 29 dollars on a sale. If I paid 100 or more I may not be as happy not sure. I think 40-60 is a good price in great used condition and maybe no more than 75 new. I base these numbers on what you would pay for what I think comparable pedals. All the LT Pedals are able to be ran using a 9V battery or by using a 9V DC power input. // 10

Sound: No noise, somehow just sounds really great on my amp Peavy ValveKing 212. Very happy with the sound and price paid. The LT Dual offers the ultimate in distortion flexibility. Channel 1 lets you move from clean, to boost to overdrive. Channel 2 then takes you from super crunch right up to screaming lead. The unique switching operation will transform a single channel amp into a three channel tone machine. The ISF control works in conjunction with the Tone control. It allows you to choose the exact tone signature you prefer. Fully CCW is a more American characteristic with a tight bottom end and more aggressive middle, and fully CW is a British characteristic which is more "woody" and less aggressive. // 10

Reliability & Durability: Very sturdy professional quality equipment. Blackstar's patented ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) circuit, giving you infinite adjustment over the characteristics of the tone control, will take you from the USA to the UK and anywhere in between, whilst the patent-applied-for clipping circuit delivers amazing valve-like tone and compression for a wide variety of playing styles. All the LT pedals are able to be ran using a 9V battery or by using a 9V DC power input. A unique clipping circuit in the LT pedals has been designed and tested to behave just like our successful HT pedals. // 10

Overall Impression: Excellent, sounds really good through my amp Peavy ValveKing 212. I put it on the clean channel and can get a great range of sounds. The ISF control works in conjunction with the Tone control. It allows you to choose the exact tone signature you prefer. Fully CCW is a more American characteristic with a tight bottom end and more aggressive middle, and fully CW is a British characteristic which is more "woody" and less aggressive.

The Level control sets the overall level or volume from Channel 1 or Channel 2 of the pedal. It should be used in conjunction with the Gain 1 control to achieve the exact type of drive you require. Generally speaking at lower Gain settings the Volume will be increased and at higher Gain settings the Volume should be decreased.
