The Providence HBL-2 Heat Blaster pedal is designed to deliver a modern distortion sound that is rich in harmonics and has a fast attack. Just like a great tube distortion in a compact pedal. This is a sound that won’t get buried in any band. What’s more, the HBL-2 does not produce the excessive compression that can be a problem with many distortion pedals, for exceptionally natural response. The Heat Blaster is ideal for use with the clean channel of a multi-channel amplifier.
