Glenn Tipton Of Judas Priest Relies On DigiTech GSP1101 Preamp Processor

October 15, 2008

SAN FRANCISCO, California -- Glenn Tipton, guitarist for Judas Priest, is currently using the GSP1101 preamp processor live on their world tour supporting their latest effort Nostradamus, a conceptual album about the life of the famous 16th century French man who published prophecies of future world events. Tipton has relied on DigiTech live and in the studio for many years.

The GSP1101 answers the professional guitarist's need for "tone preservation" by incorporating the flexibility to be easily integrated into any rig and configured to work the way you want it. DigiTech's unique Setup Wizard guides you through the steps to optimize the GSP1101 to fit your unique sound needs.

The GSP1101 is the new paradigm in preamp/processors. It meets the needs of the professional guitarists who already get their core tone with their amps, guitars, and fingers. The pros want everything from adding a few effects to their existing tone to creating entirely new sounds with a single rack-mount preamp/processor. The GSP1101 won't take over a rig like other preamps do.

Tipton stated, "The GSP1101 for me is the best professional preamp on the market. Not only for use at home, but equally for stage. You have every guitar sound immediately at your fingertips and much much more if you go into the parameters. It is easy to use, versatile and midi controllable. Everything from the effects, gates and graphics work, as they should do to shape your own sounds. The GSP1101 makes playing the guitar so much easier."
