Dept. 10 is the Blackstar R&D team responsible for blue sky innovation and design. This team of engineers are all musicians and are constantly researching new ideas to help create your perfect tone. To this end, they have developed a new range of advanced valve pedals. Dept. 10 pedals all use an ECC83 triode valve at their heart, running at more than 200V internally which allows them to deliver organic tone, dynamics and break up.

The Dept. 10 Boost is the ultimate high voltage valve boost pedal. Combining a Class A gain stage and natural-sounding passive James-Baxandall EQ, this pedal is like adding two extra hot valve stages to your amp.


  • 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-wahs.
  • High Voltage Class A Valve Gain Stage Boost: Running at 250V, the ECC83 triode at the heart of this pedal delivers naturally warm boost with enough dynamics and headroom to drive any valve amp into saturation. Its low noise, Class A design is responsive to touch and rich in second order harmonics and natural compression.
  • Revered Passive James-Baxandall EQ: The legendary passive James-Baxandall tone stack 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.
  • Standard 9v Power: Unlike most valve pedals, Dept.10 Boost runs on just 9V. Simply plug it in alongside your other effects using a standard pedal power supply (PSU Supplied).
