HBL-4 Heat Blaster
A powerful distortion sound close to the modern thick high gain tube amplifiers!
The Heat Blaster HBL-4 provides aggressive distortion from classic rock to modern hard rock.
A powerful high gain distortion
The new Heat Blaster HBL-4 became more powerful distortion pedal with rich harmonics. Its edgy aggressive sound got closer to the high gain tube amp sound while retaining picking nuance vividly.
Bass Boost Switch
Boosts the low-frequency range.This function achieves extra low end impact with humbucking and single-coil pickups. It's more helpful with single-coil pickups to create tight bottom sound.
Wide dynamic range
Internal circuitry doubles the 9-volt supply voltage to 18 volts, achieving wider dynamic range and more amp-like sound than conventional distortion effects.
In a normal True-Bypass circuit, in bypass mode the audio signal passes through two switch contacts. But in the HBL-3, in bypass mode the audio passes through a single contact, thanks to a single contact true-bypass circuit. The result is much higher sound quality and reliability than that provided by previously existing products. The S.C.T. Circuit now makes it possible to further reduce any change or deterioration in sound quality and gives the feeling that the footswitch circuit is removed entirely from your signal chain.
