Two different kinds of boost.
A unique concept in booster design, the DB10 features two completely independent boost circuits in a single compact housing. The Clean (Left) channel offers up to +20 dB of clean boost with a completely flat frequency response. The Vintage (Right) channel is Maxon’s take on the classic Treble Booster circuit. It offers up to +20 dB of boost, but with a subtle high-frequency roll-off that increases as the Level is turned towards maximum.
Each circuit has its own input and output jacks, allowing them to be cascaded into one another in any order. Place an overdrive or distortion in-between the channels for additional tonal options – super-saturated overdrive that can then be level-boosted for solos, etc.
One of the many great features of the DB10 is the proximity of the bypass switches to one another, allowing the user to hit both switches simultaneously.
Independent status LED’s indicate which channel is engaged and both channels feature True Bypass Switching using a 3PDT switch. Battery or DC (9-18 V) power options.
Order today. Ideal for the guitarist who prefers their leads not to take on a radical departure in tone.

Comments about Maxon Compact Series Dual Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:
Bear with me because most people misunderstand the purpose of this pedal. I've always liked the sound of rolling back the volume on my guitar to get a light crunch, and then spinning up for a fat solo. Great for a 3 piece, but not enough difference in volume for a dual guitar band. You're either too loud on rhythm or too soft on solos. So you can get a distortion with a clean boost after it so that you can get the needed volume difference between rhythm and solos. But then you have the same amount of distortion on rhythm and lead. Still not getting that "crunch to FAT solo" experience. Enter the Maxon Dual boost. Run the clean boost in front of your moderately distorted OD/Dist box and then feed the end of your effects chain back through the vintage boost. So now, when you take a solo, step on both buttons. This will give you the ability to switch from a crunchy rhythm to a fat, loud solo. Exactly what I've been looking to do since....forever. Fantastic idea and well executed. Works great on it's own, too, but I would put it in front of a single channel master volume tube amp like a Blues Jr.
