At The Farm, we don’t rely on bland manufacturer stock photos - we physically photograph one of each model to show a better representation of the product. Some minor details like wood grain and color finish can, and may vary slightly from the pictures below.
For those requiring higher gain, the Dept. 10 Dual Distortion takes things up a notch. A formidable sounding valve distortion pedal and a world-class valve recording preamp – with 3 crunch/overdrive voices alongside the clean channel, our patented ISF control, low latency USB, XLR out and Dept. 10’s proprietary Cab Rig simulator technology.
Dual Distortion includes Cab Rig, the next-generation DSP speaker simulator that reproduces the sound and feel of a mic’d up guitar cab in incredible detail. Deep-dive using Blackstar's 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.
Low latency USB audio connectivity allows the Dual preamp pedal to operate as standalone valve interfaces/sound cards. Simply plug direct to your laptop, desktop, or tablet via USB and capture amazing valve tone. Over 250 mic and cab combinations can be saved into one of the three onboard slots. Each cab has a choice of mic type and axis, alongside room mics an master EQ. The ISF control allows you to infinitely adjust the response of the tone control network between any of the traditional voicing in a way that has never before been possible.
The conventional three way guitar EQ network, or tone stack (a.k.a. Bass, Middle and Treble), is a key to the characteristic ‘voice’ of traditional guitar amplifiers. Classic amplifier designs have their own versions of this network which leads to their own tonal voicings. The ISF control allows you to infinitely adjust the response of the tone control network between any of the traditional voicings in a way that has never before been possible.
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.
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.
Venue backline down? No problem. Simply run the pedal’s XLR DI straight to the desk and connect your other effects via the built-in buffered effects loop. Use your pre-saved Cab Rig speaker simulations and deliver tone rivalling any miked up amp.
