    I don't know if it is that people don't read the directions or understand how amp modeling works but no-one runs these things how they are supposed to run them. Putting a amp modeling unit such as this through the front of an amp is going to destroy the sound that the pedal can give. I have the Hendrix pedal, Brian May pedal, this pedal, and the Scott Ian pedal, and the GNX 3000 and I never have problems with their tone because I run them through a mixer out to a PA system, or into the effects loop of an amp. If your amp doesn't have an effects loop, or if you don't have a mixer with clean speakers, or just plain computer speakers can work...If you don't have any of these things then it is just a waste of you time to buy modeling pedals because the tone from the front end of an amp colors the tones of modeling pedals...analog pedals or non-modeling pedals are a different story. Now a review. This pedal is a great thing to have around. Great sound from it, I especially like the Unplugged, and Layla modes...I think they could have done better on the Sunshine model. I think you can get a better tone then that out of a Fender Champ turned up to 12 with a Les Paul on the neck pickup with the tone control turned to 0...or at least thats how I get the tone. All in all it is a good pedal to have around the studio, and can be used on stage (It's built like a rock) if you take the time to set it up right and can make quick adjustments. For studio work it is brilliant for rhythm guitar work. If I need a good tone fast I just plug this into the board and lay down the track...But then again I believe that every studio needs all the Digitech pedals because they are so easy to plug in and find a good tone your looking for... Even if they are digital...I still use tube amps and analog for all the lead stuff...8/10 stars for me...

    I bought this pedal because i needed to get some real crunch out of my Deville 410 for a gig at the end of the week, because the amp itself does get some old-school drive but not a real 'crunch'. I originally was going to buy the Marshall Bluesbreaker II, but my local GC didnt have it and I needed it immediately.This pedal has a lot in it--a few different distortion tones, a leslie rotating speaker simulator, and an acoustic simulator. I didnt have much time to test out every facet of it, but I personally didnt find any difference between the distortions (althought they all gave a nice boost in volume), and they all were really noisey, with some obvious background noise. The leslie effect was so-so, because it didnt really affect my sound dramatically. Lastly, the acoustic sim I thought was pointless to add, because a sim should never be used in place of an actual acoustic. I didnt find it to work too well.This pedal does alter your tone and sound, which was the aim, so if you are like me and want to keep your own tone, look elsewhere. I think this pedal would be better if they removed the acoustic sim and dropped the price because its a Digitech, not a boutique pedal. If you want a classic natural sounding drive, look at the Xotic Effects boosters and the BSM treble boosters. The Xotics arent much more expensive than this pedal, but the BSM boosters, even at their price, are definitely a better value.

    Love this pedal

    By Jack-BHh.J

    from New York

    Using this on and off for years. Put it into effects loop, as mentioned, is the way to go and is how I use it with a ToneLab LE on 'Boutique clean' is nice transparent sounding setup. Model 2 with ctrl-2 (tone) at or near zero and ctrl-1 at 12oc (Crossroads) should get you a nice overdriven amp sound, like a 6V6 breaking up. Great for early Clapton/Page type sound.If you see one used it is worth looking into, fairly cheap pedal but well made.

    Little tweaking

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Okay, a lot of you guys are expecting to get the wickedly awesome guitar tones of Clapton through a crappy solid state and pawn guitar. And even more of you, who have fenders and marshalls and gibsons, are expecting to get the tones right out of the box. I've got a Hamer and a Peavey Valveking and have very little to complain about. Little noise here and there, which I can handle. If you feel like taking ten minutes to tweak and get bluesy, jazzy, phsycadelic tones, this is your pedal.

    Fun but not worth the bread...

    By ryansodomojo

    from Indianapolis, IN

    This pedal is fun to play around with but it sounds like it is using a reel to reel. I get it on the Sunshine setting but some of them are even louder with the hissing. If you don't have cash to throw around on a toy that has not business on stage stay away from this. It is fun but if you turn your amp up it hurts!!

    DigiTech Eric Clapton Crossroads Pedal

    By Steve

    from Long Island, NY

    I agree with another reviewer who points out the volume setting between the various styles are so great that you need to adjust it everytime you change style. Also I find the pedal very noisy/hissy even more so with the power adapter which is odd. Overall disappointed

    Versatile

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Hey GuysFor Christmas I got given it and I love it! Its pretty versatile I can make it sound rocky, bluesy,jazzy and sort of metalish it has an interesting setting that makes it sound like and organ. I would recommend this pedal for blues, rock and jazz players.

    Perfect for Me

    By VinB51

    from Baldwinsville, NY

    This pedal has satisfied my taste 100% and for that I am grateful. For years I used a combo RAT/Boss overdrive that gave me 95% of the precise rig sound I was always after. With the purchase of this pedal, however, I now get the EXACT sound I want and that is achived with the Sunshine of Your Love selection alone. Lots of sustain and hot response plus it comes in a nice box and a dedicated power adaptor.The RAT/Boss now collect dust and these are good pedals indeed.The other Crossroad selections are a nice diversion too by the way. Happy at last. Yee ha.

    Great Idea, poor execution.

    By Kirk Fan

    from Michigan

    The DigiTech Crossroads pedal is a great idea, but in fact the pedal is not very practical. Seven models of Clapton's well known tones are available. The distortion effects are very sterile and 'digital' sounding. The volume level needs to be adjusted each time you switch from one model to the next. For example, the electric 'Layla' setting is very loud, but when you switch to the 'Lay Down Sally' setting it is virtually impossible to hear it. This makes the Crossroads pedal virtually useless in a live setting. I really wanted to like this pedal but after having it for a month I just could not get any useful tones out of it. Very disappointing.

    Killer Clapton Tones, Killer Pedal

    I actually received this pedal as a present when it first came out a couple of years ago. I love it! It has all of Clapton's killer tones like his "woman tone (Sunshine of Your Love)," an Ibanez TS9-like tone (Crossroads), and a Fender tube amp creamy distortion tone (Reptile). I recommend playing the pedal w/the knobs turned all the way up. I also recommend that you use the included charger since this pedal eats up batteries like crazy.

    Chasing the elusive slowhand

    By Bluesallday

    from missouri

    Built solid, hard to get good sounds from it. Good vibrato setting and some good distortion settings, but that's about it. Good idea,but needs improvement. Just get a good amp with overdrive and maybe a good vibrato pedal and your set. Neat packaging with a pick, power supply and pouch that doesn't fit very well. p.s. the power supply works with some of my other high-end pedals, bonus!
