Brought to you by Blackstar’s R&D division responsible for blue-sky innovation and design, Dept. 10 are the most advanced valve pedals in the world.
Meticulously designed and engineered by a team of musicians for musicians. Choose from Boost, Dual Drive or Dual Distortion to help you craft your perfect tone.
Real Valve Tone
At the heart of each Dept. 10 pedal is an ECC83 triode valve, running at more than 200V internally like a valve amp, which allows them to deliver organic tone, dynamics and break up.
Dual Drive and Dual Distortion include Cab Rig, our next-generation DSP speaker simulator that reproduces the sound and feel of a mic’d up guitar cab in incredible detail. Deep-dive using our free software and capture the incredible tones via low latency USB, XLR D.I. out or headphones.
The Duals are perfect for use as a valve interface for recording, or to seamlessly add valve tone and drive to your pedalboard, complete with built-in FX Loop.
For those requiring higher gain, the Dept. 10 Dual Distortion takes things up a notch. A formidable sounding valve distortion pedal and a world-class valve recording preamp – with 3 crunch/overdrive voices alongside the clean channel, our patented ISF control, low latency USB, XLR out and Dept. 10’s proprietary Cab Rig simulator technology.
Dual Distortion includes Cab Rig, our next-generation DSP speaker simulator that reproduces the sound and feel of a miked up guitar cab in incredible detail. Deep-dive using the accompanying free software and capture the incredible tones via USB / XLR out or headphones.
Adding to this, an in-built effects loop allows for effortless integration with your pedalboard which when used with the XLR D.I. makes for a great sounding and flexible backup amp.
