    Yep! I bought one yesterday and it's fantastic. Sounds great and got all you need to get your gain and crunch going. It's a warm and full tone just like in the old days. I've got a Fender Blues Deluxe RI and they match eachother just perfectly. I'm very very happy with it. I think all Blackstar pedals are great.

    Hey Negrita- how would you say the two channels of the HT-Dual compare? I'm interested to know if they are actually two separate gain stages (overdrive and distortion) or if one is just a boost for the other.

    Yep! They are separeted and doesn't blend. The first channel comes with a clean/crunch switch and with the second one you can get more lead. The sound of the two channels is similar in their character and they act like a overdrive and a distortion. It's very versatile. I use channel one for general playing with comp, riffs and licks and sometimes when I want some extra bite I kick in the second one for solos or other more distict riffs.

    Sorry for my late replay :oops:
