The Blackstar Dept. 10 dual distortion pedal offers a wide variety of distortion options to fit any need. Four distinct distortion types are available through two separate channels, consisting of a clean or crunch option on channel one, and two distinct overdrives on the second channel. All four tones have their own gain and level controls, allowing you to dictate exactly how loud and distorted you wish your tone to be. Switching between them is easy, and simplified with two footswitches, with one designated to each channel, so you can swap quickly between a crystal-clear clean and a thrashing, crashing overdrive.
