DigiTech announced the introduction of five new distortion pedals:
the Bad Monkey; the Screamin' Blues; the Hot Head; the Grunge; and the Death
Metal. Designed to provide guitarists with a wide range of overdrive and
distortion options, these new pedals feature analog circuitry and offer sounds
ranging from smooth, classic overdrive to the dark metal.
Each pedal is housed in a rugged cast-metal enclosure, features a non-slip
rubber base, and is designed to withstand years of rigorous use. In addition,
all models feature dual outputs: a standard amp output and a mixer output with
cabinet modeling so the user can plug directly into front-of-house boards and
New pedals features are as follows:
Bad Monkey -- An overdrive pedal that produces the smooth natural character
of an overdriven tube amp while maintaining the guitar's distinct tone. Low
and High tone controls provide the flexibility to boost or cut bass and treble
Screamin' Blues -- Designed for the guitarist who needs an overdrive/distortion
pedal that responds to playing dynamics. Playing lightly gives a mild overdrive,
while dialing up the gain and "digging" in hard, makes the Screamin' Blues
sing with ultra-rich harmonics and sustain.
Hot Head -- A multi-purpose distortioh pedal featuring flexible Low, High,
and Gain controls, the Hot Head pedal can provide tones that range from "a
little dirt" to a full stack.
Grunge -- This pedal provides a wide palette of distortions ranging from chunky
rhythm to heavy grind.
Death Metal -- Designed to be the most extreme distortion pedal in the line.
Featuring extreme gain, Death Metal comes with Level, Low, Mid, and High controls
providing flexible tone shaping.
These five DigiTech pedals are each powered by a 9 Volt battery and include
a battery life LED indicator. DigiTech offers a one-year warranty, supplemented
by an additional five years of coverage with mail-in or online registration.
The new overdrive/distortion pedals are currently available at authorized
