Sound Quality

The Blackstar sounds pretty decent, though a little metallic at lower gain settings. At higher gains, it sounds very fuzzy. Unfortunately, this cannot be dialed out. If the gain is maxed, it makes the guitar sound like a reverse-fuzz. In a clean amp, it just didn't sound like anything I could be interested in. Into a dirty Marshall, it sounded pretty decent, but still fuzzy.


General Comments

I play metal. A Ibanez 7-String into a Marshall Super Lead. I have a small Silvertone combo as well. And dozens of other pedals.


The Blackstar is something I had high hopes for. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. It is a high gain fuzz box, not a distortion.
