Features

Here is the most versatile and unique distortion unit ever produced!! The DS10 can satisfy any type of distortion from classic type to massive metal overdrive. The DS10 starts out as a basic overdrive with two band, post-distortion equalization, but that's only the beginning. What separates the DS10 from the rest is the addition of a high frequency enhancement section. Basically, what happens here, is that high frequency signals are sampled, phaseshifted, and remixed into the output. The result is a clear yet sweet sound. Combine the Enhance circuit with the built in distortion for a wide range of effects or use it independently by way of the out "B" jack. Once you have tried a DS10 Distortion Charger, you will agree that this is what distortion units should have been all along.

Use

The Enhance control, along with 2-band E.Q. allows extreme manipulation of the distorted signal giving a much wider variety of overdrive type sounds. In addition, by using output B, the clean sound can also be enhanced. By adjusting the low and high e.q. levels various amp brands can be simulated. Large stacks usually have more low end than small combo amps for example. This is useful even if your amp has plenty of E.Q. since you may have already set the amp e.q. for certain sounds your amp is best suited for. Moderate use of the enhance control can liven up a guitar sound that was uninteresting before. By taking signals from outputs A and B and routing through 2 sets of processors or amps (parallel processing), the "enhanced" guitar can sound like 2 very different sounds at once. Since the "enhance" is sensitive to dynamics, use the volume control creatively on the guitar.
