DigiTech: Digital Delay

Price paid: $ 99.99

Purchased from: Kliva Ringas

Sound — 9
I have a Gibson les paul, Fender 60th anv., and a Tom Delonge strat going to a classic Crate BV-120 to a Kustom cab. I have managed to get a great sound out of it. Its not noisy at all, no buzzing or cracking, that could be due to the adapter I bought with it, which I recommend. All 7 effects are very solid. None of them lack volume or dimension. The effect is great with distortion! I don't really use it with distortion, but when I was just messing around it really surprised me when both were engaged.

Overall Impression — 10
I play in a band and we play shows. We are punk/emo/alternative sound, it's hard to explain. Anyways, I have no hatred toward this pedal at all. It's hard to find anything a dislike about it, even the color of it is sweet. If it were stolen I'd buy another one, or find out Who took it, rip off there arms and beat them. Overall this pedal is made to impress.

Reliability & Durability — 10
I have owned my DF-7 by DigiTech for about 1 year and 1/2. So I believe that this thing will last a long time as well. It built well and would take a lot of punishment before it'd break. I wouldn't use a back up even if I had one to use.

Ease of Use — 9
Well first off, it is very easy to get a get sounds out of this pedal. It actually makes my cleans a lot more sturctured. As far as editing goes, it seem like the possiblities are endless. You get 7 different delays in one, couldn't ask for to much more. The manuel explains everything you need to know. In fact, you might want to read it through so you understand all the options this little guy has to offer.

    I'm thinking of buying one.I'll use it with my Hot Head distortion.Delay is pretty much needed for the music me and my band play.
    Damn good this pedal. I bought it cos I thought I wanted a delay during soloing but I ended up not wanting use the delay(delay doesn't suit my style) but ended up using the chorus this pedal produced, LOL! Saved me the money buying a chorus pedal

    Well I went to the shop were I bought it...and the problem was that I ran out of battery.And they told me that the delay and the chorus effects chew up battery REALLY fast!So they told me not to use with batterys.
