Equipped with a real ECC83 preamp tube, the Blackstar Dept. 10 Boost pedal is the perfect way to punch up the input of any amplifier. A boost pedal is a formidable tool for getting the most out of any amplifier — it not only raises your volume for solos, but it also elicits livelier tone out of your amp's preamp section. And with its Low and High EQ controls, the Dept. 10 Boost is a capable tone shaper for any guitar with any combination of pickups. Whether you're looking to add true tube richness to a solid-state amplifier, or you want to squeeze the maximum mojo out of your tube amp, you'll be pleased with the Blackstar Dept. 10 Boost pedal.

    High-voltage tube tone

    At the heart of each Dept. 10 series pedal is a genuine ECC83 preamp tube operating at 250 volts. This gives you the full dynamic and harmonic range of the tube, imbuing your tone with complex harmonics and punchy attack. It's a great way to punch up the front end of any amplifier, especially when you need a loud, clean tube amp to break up before you reach ear-splitting volume levels. Guitarists at Music Experience love boost pedals for reshaping the core response of our amps, and we're sure you'll be impressed with the Blackstar Dept. 10 Boost.

    What Blackstar Says...

    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.

    Introducing Dept. 10

    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.

    Class-A Gain Stage

    The Dept. 10 Boost is equivalent to adding two extra hot valve stages to your single channel amp. Its low noise, Class-A design is responsive to touch and rich in second order harmonics and natural compression.

    James-Baxandall Tone Stack

    Dept. 10 Boost features the legendary passive James-Baxandall EQ stack which retains the true character of your tone. It works beautifully with any amp and its open treble and powerful low-end allows you to tailor the boost to your exact requirement.

    9V Power Supply Included

    All Dept. 10 pedals run at more than 200V internally just like a valve amp, however thanks to clever design can be powered with a standard 9V adaptor (included). This allows the ECC83 to deliver true valve tone  and response while remaining pedalboard friendly.

    Built-in Buffer / Line Driver

    All Dept. 10 pedals feature a built-in buffer / line driver. Perfect for preserving your tone when using long cables, or large pedalboards, even driving low impedance pedals like many wah wah’s.
