Blackstone Sound Clips

On these two clips, a TS808 Tube­screamer is used as a reference, since a lot of people are familiar with this pedal.

Chords on the TS, then on Blackstone,
single notes on TS, then on Blackstone.

Arpeggios and chords.
Entire riff on the TS, then on Blackstone.

Note how the Blackstone gets brash only when pushed. It is more even in volume, but more varied in harmonic generation.  

This clip demonstrates how the Blackstone and 3 other pedals "clean up" from the guitar controls. Chord with guitar's volume pot at 6, then turned up to 10.
