    Proel DS-10 Blues DistortionPublished on 05/21/15 at 03:57
    There are hundreds of Boutique pedals and many promise more than they deliver (Klon comes to mind as an example) I was put on to this pedal by accident and just happened to find one on ebay. I didn't know what to expect, but what I got was EXACTLY what I needed. I was ready to let the Cornford go in favour of a Tweed Deluxe or 57 Twin as wanted a more articulated character with my breakup. However, now I have that quality, AND also an amp that is renowned for delivering great British Blues and heavy Rock tones to boot. So, the DS-10 saved its bacon! Oh, and all this lovliness now comes in at bedroom levels no less!

    There are hundreds of Boutique pedals and many promise more than they deliver (Klon comes to mind as an example) I was put on to this pedal by accident and just happened to find one on ebay. I didn't know what to expect, but what I got was EXACTLY what I needed. I was ready to let the Cornford go in favour of a Tweed Deluxe or 57 Twin as wanted a more articulated character with my breakup. However, now I have that quality, AND also an amp that is renowned for delivering great British Blues and heavy Rock tones to boot. So, the DS-10 saved its bacon! Oh, and all this lovliness now comes in at bedroom levels no less!
    Sound Quality: This is a remarkable pedal inasmuch as it boosts your guitar signal in specific ways to interact with your amp. It is quite bright so you do not lose any definition in your tone and is so sensitive, that you get marked changes of effect with the slightest of dial selection. Also how you mix the 3 controls gives wide, but subtle and highly usable tonal options. For instance: With a Valve amp it will not only drive your power amp section, but 'clean' it also; all mid and mud is removed at the click of a switch.

    I run this in conjunction with a Cornford Roadhouse which offers hi-gain Marshall-esque, British rock tones aplenty. However with my Gibson 335, on its own the Cornford is very muddy (still nice sound but not always suitable). With the DS-10, engaged, and a few tweaks of the EQ's and I have a remarkable punchy, Bluesy and easy to break up 'ripping' tone that I can control by pick dynamic alone. Makes my 335 come alive and adds fantastic articulation.

    However, biggest shock was when plugged in the Tele and Stratocasters and after a minimal re-EQ-ing, I suddenly had a Fender Delexe Reverb tone on edge of breakup, but at room levels. All the dynamics are there - maybe not the full tuneful quality of a vintage Fender DR, but how many hand-made (non Chinese!) amps give you distinct Marshall and Fender out the box at a sub £$1000 price point?? So, this pedal makes me and my Cornford very happy!

    But it also works its magic on classic Tweed amps too, where the on-board options are few and far between. With a traditional 5e3 Tweed Deluxe, where boominess and massive power valve distortion is the name of the game, then this pedal clarifies things down. So, for example, I can full out Neil Young Tweed Deluxe drive with a LP and then engage the PROEL to be instantly transformed into a Celestion Blue equipped Kinks 60s rage-toned Vox or other British vintage small combo amp - best of both worlds!

    Clip here shows some of this ability with a meager germanium transistored Teisco amp - here how it cleans and focuses that bluster!



    and clarity with a Digitech X pedal into a tweed...




    Reliability/Durability: I bought this off ebay used for 25 euro from an Italian user (I am UK). Is clean and fully functional and heavy (!) and probably already 3/4 years old, so expect years of use.
    Ease of Use: Robust Metal casing that is hinged at top to allow access to Battery (like lifting a car hood!). 9V battery or DC. Level, Tone, Distortion controls, sturdy footswitch.

    Proel is an Italian company and unit is made in Italy. The DS-10 whas superseded by the DS-20 but DS-10 is better suited to the low gain, non fuzz, 'Boutique' style (non Metal) Distortion. Sadly, neither are no longer in production, so only a few lucky owners will ever get to realise the enormous potential and versatility of this NOT Distortion pedal, but MAGIC pedal!


    I also use it with my Boutique 'Keeley' Upgraded BOSS ME5

    SOUND QUALITY

    The sound? It must be heard to be believed. In fact, this has nothing PDAL Italian envy all its competitors. It possde an incredible range of sounds. A low dose of distortion (8 or 9), this is a lgre overdrive pedals, though grainy, as if it came straight out of a Vox AC30, to do a bit of blues or rock 'roll the Calvin Russell, or at worst, the rolling stones. Now let's tackle more srieusement gain, and we get 12, and is the DLIR! Neighbors tributary of the whole neighborhood chalk Angus Young (AC / DC) is currently rgler your amp. srieusement more we attack the outline and a little grain, so that your amp ... sounds like it has never been his whole wretched life. Now, let's go, frankly, to 4-5 h, and ... sublime astonishment ... Mtallica in your living room!
    but on ... its a big fat ... and yes ... ! It's been rflechir!

    OVERALL OPINION

    Well. This is not because we can not afford, we must have a sound shit! No need to buy the Z-Vex or BJF pedals or even in you want here's the crazy prices!

    PROEL the DS-1 is a sign of quality irrprochable. She no longer produced, and that's a shame!
    PROEL will ignite and opens the international market. And now comes the DS-20, (small ERRF the DS-1), DS-1 and becomes quite looking for those who are trying or have heard of.
