Guitarists now have access to models of seven of the all-time greatest distortion/overdrive sounds in a single, convenient package
NAMM WINTER SESSION, ANAHEIM, CA, January 20, 2005 -- DigiTech®, a leading manufacturer of guitar signal processors, and a Harman International company (NYSE-HAR), debuts the DF-7 Distortion Factory™ pedal. With the new DF-7, DigiTech has modeled seven of the all-time greatest distortion and overdrive stompboxes and packaged them in one convenient effects pedal.
Designed for guitarists looking for a wide variety of tones ranging from mild to wild, the DF-7 Distortion Factory models all the nuances, drive and vibe reminiscent of the original seven pedals, including models based on the Ibanez® TS-9 Tube Screamer, DOD® Overdrive/Preamp 250, Boss® DS-1, Pro Co Rat™, Boss® MT-2 Metal Zone®, DigiTech's own Metal Master™, and Electro-Harmonix® Big Muff Pi®.
Model one is based on the Ibanez® TS-9 Tube Screamer -- famous for delivering a warm natural tube overdrive sound, this setting is ideal for boosting the guitar's signal without adding a lot of distortion.
Model two is based on the DOD® Overdrive Preamp/250 -- delivers a smooth overdrive/distortion typical of the legendary guitar sounds of the mid-70's.
Model three is based upon the Boss® DS-1 Distortion -- one of the most famous all-purpose distortions with plenty of gain yet maintaining the dynamic nuances of your guitar's tone.
Model four is based on the Pro Co Rat™ -- the perfect blend of warm growl to edgy punch makes this a versatile distortion.
Model five is based on the Boss® MT-2 Metal Zone® -- a high gain modern stack distortion for today's metal guitarist.
Model six is based upon the DigiTech® Metal Master™ -- this top selling distortion pedal model features a solid midrange boost for an incredible sustaining lead tone with great harmonics and easily controlled feedback.
Model seven is based on the Electro-Harmonix® Big Muff Pi® -- experience that great 60's retro fuzz tone with this model. The DF-7 Distortion Factory features include a seven position Model knob, as well as dual amp and mixer outputs with DigiTech's award winning CIT™ cabinet modeling, allowing direct connection to mixing consoles utilizing a variety of popular speaker cabinet models. Plus the DF-7 is the first X-Series to feature three dual concentric pots for Gain, Level, Low, High, Mid, and Mid Frequency EQ controls.
Housed in a rugged cast-metal enclosure with a unique carbon-fiber look, the DF-7 Distortion Factory has a non-slip rubber base and is built to withstand years of rigorous use. Powered by a 9 Volt battery or optional DigiTech PS200R Power Supply, the DF-7 Distortion Factory is available immediately at authorized DigiTech dealers and comes with a one-year warranty, supplemented by an additional five years of coverage with a mail-in or online registration.
