What an awesome Pedal

CaptN, 14.02.2014
Well, let's start from the beginning.

For a long time I was looking for a distortion pedal that could fullfill my requirements.
I tested a lot of pedals and ended up with the new DUAL pedal from Blackstar.
And let me tell you that: What an awesome pedal!

The sound is really defined and it's exactly what I was looking for. I couldn't make out any difference to a real tube pedal. The ISF feature is a nice bonus. Only disadvantage: I tried to put some velcro underneath the pedal, but the rubber won't let me. I just removed the rubber and everything went just fine.

If you're looking for a good sounding distortion / overdive pedal for a comparatively low price, the DUAL by Blackstar is a very good choice!

Great value

27.02.2015
Having been the owner of the terrific Blackstar HT Dual for the last few years, the only complaint I would have had was the space that it took up on my pedalboard and the oversized Adapter. This pedal corrects both of these problems for me and despite the lack of a tube, the tone is still brilliant. With the ISF feauture, I can dial in a British or American style amp drive(or a mix between the two), and the tone knob is surprisingly wide ranging and easy to dial in. I expected the lack of an EQ to be a bit of a problem, but was very pleasantly surprised by how much the combination of the tone and ISF can compensate. The benefit of having 2 channels in one compact pedal is massive, but to be honest I would be more inclined to put an overdrive in front of the Lt Dual and stick to channel one. I find channel 2 a little dark sounding, but that would be personal taste. There is sufficient gain on this pedal to play anything from blues and funk, up to hard rock, and while I wouldn't recommend the pedal for extremely heavy metal, if pushed with a decent overdrive this pedal could be pushed as far as you need it to go. Overall, i've been really impressed with this pedal. It's great value for the price and really versatile. 5 stars!
