Dept. 10 - The World's Most Advanced Valve Pedals

Dept. 10 is the Blackstar R&D team responsible for blue sky innovation and design. This team of engineers areall musicians and are constantly researching new ideas to help create your perfect tone. They have developedthe world’s most advanced valve pedals. Dept. 10 pedals all use an ECC83 triode valve at their heart, runningat more than 200V internally which allows them to deliver organic tone, dynamics and break up. Innovativedesign, premium components and our advanced Cab Rig D.I. technology, create the ultimate valve pedals.

More Than Just 'Another' Pedal

Running at more than 200 volts, the ECC83 triode at the heart of these pedals delivers organic dynamics, tone and break up. The best valve drive pedal you will ever own and a world-class valve recording preamp - with 3 overdrive voices alongside the clean channel, Blackstar's patented ISF control, low latency USB, XLR out and Dept. 10's proprietary Cab Rig simulator technology. What's more is it features pro connectivity and integration into your setup using low latency USB audio as a valve interface for recording, and XLR D.I. for live use. 

Great for those players who want a pedal to use as a preamp or backup amp at gigs (yeah, its that good), or for those who just want a real tube overdrive in a pedal platform. It's also perfect for recording engineers or guitarists with home studios who want flexible tube guitar preamps.
