It’s Two Boosts In One! HARMAN’s DigiTech Introduces the Tone Boost Dual-Boost Pedal for the iStomp™
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – What’s better than a boost pedal for guitarists who need some extra volume for solos and when they need to stand out from the rest of the band? HARMAN’s DigiTech new Tone Boost e-pedal for the iStomp. The Tone Boost offers two boost options – a straight clean boost and an adjustable boost for a specific frequency range.
“Our Tone Boost is an extremely useful live and studio performance tool,” said Scott Klimt, DigiTech Marketing Manager. “Sometimes guitarists just want a straight volume boost. But if they want to enhance a specific frequency, for example, like Eric Clapton with his favored 500Hz midrange boost or Brian May using his 3kHz treble booster, the Tone Boost lets users dial in the specific EQ to achieve the exact tone they want.”
The DigiTech Tone Boost offers up to 20dB of clean boost and 20dB of frequency-specific boost. The BOOST knob provides a straight-head clean boost. For frequency-specific tone shaping, the FREQUENCY control lets players select the frequency they want to emphasize and the WIDTH knob adjusts the frequency bandwidth, from a narrow range to a wider frequency spectrum. The EQ BOOST control gives an additional 20dB of boost, and the BOOST and EQ BOOST controls can be used together if desired. The Tone Boost offers true stereo operation, for use in stereo pedalboard setups and with two amplifiers.
The DigiTech iStomp is an entirely new concept in guitar stompboxes that allows musicians to turn the iStomp into any pedal in the Stomp Shop online pedal store. Offering almost limitless sonic possibilities, the iStomp connects to an Apple iOS device where musicians can use the Stomp Shop app to load it with the e-pedal of their choice. The Stomp Shop is a free app and comes with two of the most popular requested pedals, the DigiTech Total Recall Delay™ and the DigiTech Redline Overdrive™. It gives access to more than 30 additional pedals that musicians can browse, try out and purchase, with more pedals added every month.
The DigiTech Tone Boost e-pedal will be available in October 2012 at an introductory price of $0.99. This introductory price will run for the next 30 days. After the introductory period the price will change to $9.99.
The DigiTech iStomp is currently available at $149.95 suggested retail.
