“DigiTech is launching a pedal assault from all angles”.
Total Guitar magazine investigate the newest pedals from DOD and DigiTech this month, awarding the DigiTech Drop with the magazine’s coveted ‘Best Buy’ award.
On the DOD Overdrive Preamp 250…”run it into an already cooking valve amp, and that proves to be its ace in the hole: use the level control to boost your amp, and the pedal’s own gain melds seamlessly with your amp’s for chunky rhythms and saturated, sustaining leads”.
On the DOD Phasor 201…”DOD’s offering has a very subtle phase tone, and its gentle throb wont impinge on your core guitar tone…if you’re going through a vintage phase, the 201 is worth a shot”.
On the DigiTech Luxe…”The resultant tone is a rich sheen, almost like having two guitars playing at once - it works great with distortion, and sounds like a slow rotating speaker at more detuned settings”.
On the DigiTech Drop…”the Drop makes a guitar in standard tuning sound colossal for baritone parts and seven-string-alike sounds. Elsewhere, the octave + dry setting provides punishing single note riffs, and momentary mode makes for awesome rhythmic stutters…this is the most convincing, not to mention compact, drop tuner we’ve used”.
The full feature can be found in the new issue of Total Guitar magazine (November, 2014) on sale now. The DOD Overdrive Preamp 250 and DOD Phasor 201 are also available now at £89 and £85 RRP inc VAT respectively.
