The World’s Most Advanced Valve Pedals are Here

FACE for professionals

Brought to you by Blackstar’s R&D division responsible for blue-sky innovation, Dept. 10 are the most advanced valve pedals in the world. Choose from Boost, Dual Drive or Dual Distortion to craft your perfect 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, Blackstar's 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.
