Blackstar Dept. 10 Valve Pedals

Blackstar calls its Dept. 10 stompboxes "the world’s most advanced valve pedals", by combining traditional high-voltage design with their latest technology. A bold claim indeed, but when you hear them in action — it's hard to disagree!

Blackstar Dept. 10 Valve Pedals

Blackstar's Dept. 10 guitar pedals all come equipped with an ECC83 (12AX7) preamp tube, allowing them to deliver the organic dynamic range, sound and break-up of real valve amps! Compact and extremely easy to integrate into your existing setup, these stompboxes can inject all of the analogue goodness of traditional tube tone into anything you plug them into.

While the Boost is designed for use into the front-end of an amplifier, the Dual Distortion and Dual Drive pedals pack far more under the hood and can be plugged into PA systems or audio interfaces thanks to their innovative 'Cab Rig' simulator tech. The 'Dual' units also boast Blackstar's patented ISF tone-shaping control, a 3-band EQ, low-latency USB & XLR outputs and 2 versatile channels with 4 voices overall. They do a lot!
