Distortion pedals are as important to the world of guitar playing as guitar playing is to modern music. How do you get a whole spectrum of distortion tones? You can spend a fortune on individual stompboxes (and have a pedal board the size of Delaware)? or you can put our new X-Series™ DF-7 Distortion Factory™ to work.You not only get DigiTech quality models like the Ibanez® TS-9 Tube Screamer®, EH® Big Muff™ pi, Pro Co Rat™, Metal Zone® and DOD® Overdrive/Preamp 250, you also get a ton of EQ control. That's because the DF-7 features three dual concentric tone controls so you can customize each model with High, Mid, Midrange and Low semi-parametric EQ. If you're a distortion freak (and who isn't?), check out the new X-Series™ DF-7 at your DigiTech dealer today.
My drummer gave me one of these, someone had left it at his place so he gave it to me. I wasn't sure how it would be, but once I messed around with it I was pretty happy. I don't get a whole lot of time playing loud, so I haven't had much time to see how the highs and lows carry with all the settings. A lot of different options, which is really nice, and it's pretty simple to understand.
This was my first pedal. It's awesome for home use but only alright in a live setting. I don't really use Rat distortion or Fuzzes, so would dish out 100 for an individual pedal. But having these included is great to fool around with. Distortion is defintely best coming from a valve/tube preamp but using a 2 channel amp, I still need three sounds (clean, crunchy and distortion). So I still use it, because the tubescreamer setting sounds pretty decent in front of my clean channel. It's also very robust and looks awesome. If you only want 1 or 2 distortion sounds, this is a no go. But its fun and great value.
