Has anyone tried the blackstar distortion pedal with the little tube in it?
Would the quality of sound be better than a Boss distortion unit? Does
the tiny tube give a real tube sound or is it mixed with transistors?
I Love blackstar stuff, but it all depends on what you want out of the pedal. I hate most boss dirts because they sound generic and awful but it's all subjective. why only blackstar or boss? what sort of dirt are you looking for? what amp/s do you use? guitars?
I don't think you should limit yourself to just two pedal companys But blackstar are much better at sounding like a valve amp than boss imo.
take a look into...
Or if you are after a "alternative" dirt sound (sonic youth etc.)
