hey everyone, recently i was on the digitech website and i found out that they came out with a Brand new line of pedals meant to be high quality pedals, with true bypass,all metal housing and high voltage operation (for more headroom huh.gif). they seem pretty cool, but they are not very expensive(about $100 for O.D. with true bypass, metal housing, high voltage operation.ect) so im not sure that they really worth it because i think digitech could have made sound sacrifice to lower the price...

anyway, id love to know what you think about those smile.gif
thank

Might be good alternative to boss pedals. They could give some sounds samples on website.

I had a very bad experience with a digitech pedalboard when I was younger so I think that I won't buy a product from them again... ( dry.gif maybe just a whammy).

I had the same experience... We all called it DigiCrap biggrin.gif

But this looks like it might have some promise...

i think those pedals could be better than boss, with true bypass and metal knobs.
i don't understand why they didn't give some sound samples, they gave some for almost all of their other pedal, if not all!

i used to like my DF 7 but then it started to sound too plasticy or something like that when i got my pod x3 and i thought i didnt need it any more since i got the x3. but now i am looking for one single pedal for portableness with my amp for quick jam sessions instead of carry a massive pedalboard around. and these might be it smile.gif or the thousands of other pedals :S!! the saturator looks quite promising though! anyways i should start my own thread on that lol.
thanks for sharing new info wink.gif

These have to be very good in order to compete with other pedals out there. We will see how much they cost and how they sound.

Anyone tried any of these pedals yet? The reviews i've read and seen has been very positive and the youtube demos sound pretty good (atleast as far os youtube sound quality goes =/ ). I'm gonna try the metal, tube overdrive and delay pedal next week.
I'll come back with some comments.

Yeah dude, I bought the delay it's awesome, I've heard demos for the metal pedal (tl-2), sounds way better than other metal pedals like the metal muff...the one I'd be most interested in is the distortion, seems like a good alternative to a keeley DS-1, as for the tube overdrive there are just too many good overdrives out there like the tubescreamers, OCD etc i don't think it can really compete, have true bypass is definitely a plus and they are built really rugged
I am also considering the tuner, apparently it's really good as well, want to keep all the pedals on my board true bypass if possible

Yeah i'm mostly interested in the delay and the tuner. I'm gonna try the O/D but i'm really interested in the Krankshaft OD, though it's quite a bit more expensive =(

They have sound samples. You just have to find them.

I bought the Hardwire cm-2 Tube Overdrive last weekend.
I don't feel I have enough general knowledge to make a true review of it. But here are my impressions:

Extremely well-built, the moment I held it in my hand I was struck by how solid it felt.
Seems to have very good quality components, no hiss ,clicks or unwanted noise at all, no pop or klick when stomping on/off.
Definetly let's your guitars characteristics through. Lots of usefull sounds, sensitive buttons. The voicing switch actually makes it sound like two completely different pedals.

Now, I use this as an extra push on my already distorted tube-amp. I push it on to get some extra harmonics and just insane tones. When I push this on my guitar simply sings.
I've used it a little on my clean channel just to test the pedal as a low-distortion device and in my ears it sounds very nice. Very responsive. Pleasant overdrive.

All in all i'm extremely satisfied and I urge anyone looking for a overdrive pedal to go try this pedal out!
