Blackstar Dept. 10 Valve-Powered Boost Pedal

Featuring ECC83 Preamp Tube & 2-Band EQ

Written by

Elliot Stent

Blackstar labels its Dept. 10 stompboxes as "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 one of these in action — it's hard to disagree! All equipped with an ECC83 (12AX7) preamp tube, these incredible units deliver the organic dynamics, tone and break-up of a real valve amp from a compact chassis that integrates easily into any setup.

Valve-Powered Boost!

This is the ultimate high-voltage valve boost pedal. Combining a Class A gain stage and natural-sounding passive James-Baxandall EQ, this class-leading pedal is like adding two extra-hot valve stages to your amp!

Key Features

  • Driven by an ECC83 triode valve running at more than 200V internally; allowing the pedal to provide organic tone, huge dynamics and exquisite break-up.
  • James-Baxandall 2-band EQ gives you flexible control over the lows and highs, letting you tailor the pedal to any amplifier.
  • Built-in buffer/line-driver is perfect for preserving your tone when using long cables, or large pedalboards, even driving low impedance pedals like wahs.
  • Compact design, running at 9V for compatibility with most pedal power supplies with a 500mA output. Dedicated PSU is included with the pedal for standalone use.
