OVERVIEW

Inspired by 7 of the world's most famous distortion pedals.

With the DigiTech DF-7 Distortion Factory Modeling Pedal you can have a satisfying smorgasbord of 7 screaming effects pedals in one stomp box. Distortion pedals are as important to the world of guitar playing as guitar playing is to modern music. So how do you get a whole spectrum of distortion tones? You can spend a fortune on individual stompboxes (and have a pedal board the size of Pennsylvania) or you can put the X-Series DF-7 Distortion Factory to work for you.

Now you can have tones from the Ibanez TS-9 Tube Screamer, EH Big Muff pi, Pro Co Rat, Metal Zone, and DOD Overdrive/Preamp 250 with a ton of EQ control to shape their sounds the way you want them. That's because the DF-7 features 3 dual concentric tone controls so you can customize each model with High, Mid Freq, Mid, and Low EQ, in addition to Gain and Level. The DF-7 sounds so good because it isn't just pedal models. The sounds modeled are the pedal interacting with the cabinet and tube characteristics of classic amps associated with each pedal. It's this combination that truly distinguishes the DigiTech DF-7 and puts its sounds leagues beyond most distortion stompbox modelers.

FEATURES
  • 7 classic distortion stompbox models
  • Flexible Output Mode
  • Stereo outputs
  • Amp and CIT mixer outputs
  • Level/Low, Mid Frequency/Mid, Gain/High, and Distortion Model controls
  • Rugged cast-metal chassis
  • Unique carbon-fiber look
  • Nonskid rubber base
  • Model 1 based on Ibanez TS-9 with Fender 1965 Deluxe Reverb 1x12
  • Model 2 based on DOD Overdrive/Preamp 250 with Marshall half stack
  • Model 3 based on BOSS DS-1 with Johnson half stack
  • Model 4 based on Pro Co Rat with Fender Bassman 2x12
  • Model 5 based on BOSS Metal Zone with Johnson half stack
  • Model 6 based on DigiTech Metal Master with VHT half stack
  • Model 7 based on EH Big Muff with Marshall half stack loaded with 25W Celestion speakers

If you're a distortion freak (and who isn't?) call and order your DF-7 today. You won't be disappointed.

This pedal is great for a players who want to play everything from Jazz to Blues to Metal.I'll Honestly Reveiw Each Model 1-71. This Model Is real warm For any blues or Classic rock music you could play. This comes really close to the real thing I tried this bad boy out on a Fender Blues Jr. This took the natural Overdrive into a great crunchy lead tone SRV worthy. 2. This model is OK. I say this becaus you need to tweak the heck out of it to get the highs out. My Strat sounds like paper on this setting. However My Les paul just overloads you with sustain without killing the tone. Zakk Wylde would approve.3. I have owned the real thing which is the Boss DS-1. I put these two side by side and I couldn't tell the Difference! That's all I nedd to say about #3.4. To tell you the truth I have never used the rat so I can't tell you how close this setting is to the real thing. But this Model Definately has a real warm distorted tone. I have used this for some Classic 70's rock leads.5. This Model Rules. Anyone who play's Metallica or any really heavy music who needs that tight raunchy distortion look no further. This setting works for all types of heavy music. Great for crazy leads. Plus pretty close to the real deal.6. Never cared for the Digitech Death Metal sounds like a wah pedal is stuck in the on position 3/4 the way down. BLAHHH7. This is great for an overall fuzz tone. That is great for an awesome sustaining lead tone. The Tone frome this is real thick and creamy. A lot of Hendrix Soumd's great with #7.Overall This pedal is worth it for the money.

I picked up this pedal without testing it first; big mistake. I really need a Big Muff Pi sound and figured i would get that plus additional simulated boxes. My primary setup is a Jackson PC1 (1 Koa, 1 Mahogany), into a Toadworks Squishy, Paul Cochran Tim, Tonebone Trimode, old Boss chorus, TC Electronics Repeater, 78 Marshall Super Lead 50w combo, 78 Fender Super twin Reverb. As much as I tried I could not dial in a nice sound. The pedal sounded very sterile and very trebly. The pedal does offer a magnitude of variation but can't escape the digital sterility. This would be a good pedal for a beginner who wants to explore different distortion/overdrive sounds without spending a bunch of money and accumulating a bunch of boxes

Great if used right.

Comments about DigiTech DF-7 Distortion Factory Modeling Pedal:

This pedal is a must have if you play a wide range of music. The real trick to this is in the EQ. Once you EQ one distortion model just right, you cant just switch to a different model and have it sound right. Each distortion model has a VERY different eq response. So you have to spend time and play with each setting to get it to sound good. But this pedal has massive tone shaping abaility. So you can make any of the setting sound great. But it takes some tweaking. The only model that isnt great is the Metal Master. Its very shrill and noisy. Over all, this is the most versitile distortion unit on the market. If you buy it, give yourself plenty of time to adjust it to sound right. Check it out!

Inexpensive Doesn't Mean Cheap

By Anonymous

Comments about DigiTech DF-7 Distortion Factory Modeling Pedal:

I was reading an interview in Guitar World with Hartley Peavey, and he was commenting about the problem with people equation high or low costs with quality. I was thinking this must be the reason some people refuse to give Digitech the credit they deserve. I had already owned 2 of their pedals, and was really impressed by their quality, they are made of heavy-duty metal. I never seemed to be satisfied with my tone, especially my overdrive, so I figured I'd give this a try. My favorite three models immediatley were the Ibanez TS-9, Boss DS-1, and Boss Metal Zone, which separately are 3 of the 4 top selling OD pedals on this site. I play an Ibanez RG2550 through a Fender Pro Junior with an EH Holy Grail Reverb, MXR Dyna Comp, and this Digitech DF-7. My tone is amazing, and my little 15 watt Fender cranks! Tube amps, reverb, compression and a good OD/distortion make for great tone!

Comments about DigiTech DF-7 Distortion Factory Modeling Pedal:

I own one for 2 years and I have had little problems with it but the sound have always been perfect. The pedal sounds awesome I have record different styles of music and this has been maybe in all of my recordings. I have had some problems with the on and off switch inside of the pedal put have fix it. For live shows I always used it you can go from blues to metal in a sec. To be honest some of the 7 models are not so good (maybe 3 of them)depends on your needs. Overall very good EQ's perfect for all music. By the way I don't used very good amps cause for the pedal there is no need for much more.

problem solver pedal !!!

By J Mac

from Watertown, WI

Comments about DigiTech DF-7 Distortion Factory Modeling Pedal:

If you have a one channel amp like me then you know when you dial in a good clean sound and then hit your distortion pedal it doesnt sound good or dial in a good distorted tone and the clean sound will suffer right? With the 4 band eq on this pedal you can keep your killer clean sound and eq the distorted tone to match ! Problem solved and 7 awesome tones for your tone mood swings. Thanks Digitech, this is the 3'rd pedal i have of yours and they keep getting better !!

Comments about DigiTech DF-7 Distortion Factory Modeling Pedal:

First of all I would like to say that if you play through a solidstate amp this is not the pedal for you. However if you have a tube amp this is one of the coolest pedals out there. This pedal models 7 classic distortion pedals.It has a knob that list numbers 1-7, and it gives you a list of which number is which pedal.To get the exact tone of the pedal you have selected you put all EQ knobs at 12'o'clock. Just leaving the knobs at 12 and flipping through the different pedals you can get decent tones but to really get some awesome tones start adjusting the EQ. There are almost limitless possibilities. The only thing that I dont like is the metal zone and the metal master models. They seem to be a little harsh and cartoonish sounding compared to the rich, full, sounds of the others.Overall i love this pedal and use it all the time, I have played some of the originals and these models are pretty close. Buy this pedal if your looking for a pedal that can go from vintage bluesy overdrive to screeming rock leads.

not a 7 but an 8

Ask me a question

Comments about DigiTech DF-7 Distortion Factory Modeling Pedal:

its not 1-7 its 8
When you buy a simulator you can only expect to get a close approximation of the original sound.. the df-7 is a simulator.... I look at it as a 8th pedal that is really versitile. I think out of the 3 pedals Ive used basically the boss and dods This is close enough and it has tone options not really available on the original... If you have one of the other pedals and like it just keep it. But if you want something new "Now for something completely different" Then you just hit a home run. Just cuz it may sound digital to someone else doesnt mean you arent gonna like it yourself. I personnally like 3 of the 7 the other 4 range from ok to aweful. But I am happy with it. I had a power supply so batteries arent an issue. What I hate is having to change the setting from one box to another.. it should of had a memory feature to save settings maybe on the df-7+ model.. and they could use cosmand a numerical led too. probably those updates whould have em flying off the shelves
built like a tank nice carbonesque appearance
even if you like 3 of the 7 boxes its worth it

Comments about DigiTech DF-7 Distortion Factory Modeling Pedal:

Digitech did it again with the DF-7. I don't care what people say about them or their equipment, I use nothing but MXR, Digitech, and Line 6 equipment. I've been playing for about sixteen years, and this is one of the best (and most versatile) pedals for rock or metal that I've ever come across. I've used the Digitech Metal Master pedal for years, and this is the only one I've come across that even compares. In fact, I always had trouble nailing down the mid-range with the Metal Master (even with my MXR 10-Band EQ's), a problem I haven't had with the DF-7 As with all digital equipment, however, you've got to get to know your EQ's in order to get the most out of it and keep it from sounding "processed". Other than that, I've got no complaints.

Comments about DigiTech DF-7 Distortion Factory Modeling Pedal:

This thing is great. The only 'problem' with it is that it has so many options, you have 7 models, 3 eq settings, and 3 control settings. Which is great, because that's just endless possibilities, so I really am lying when I say it's a problem. It's great once you figure out your sound, and if you're playing hard rock to metal, then #5 (the metal zone setting) is the greatest. I love it. It also has 2 mid settings, which makes it completely tonally bendable.

Comments about DigiTech DF-7 Distortion Factory Modeling Pedal:

I've had this pedal for a little over two years and I have never had a problem with it. This thing is great for dialing in all kinds of sounds,but since I play metal 95% of the time. I usually have it set on 5 [boss metal zone]. I go from my guitar into the df-7 then into my amp,and I play through the clean channel.This thing gives me a fat crunch thats great for playing thrash or nu-metal. I gave it a 4.5 for quality because all the distortions cant be fine tuned to please everyone. If you play in a cover band that plays a lot of rock genres or you play metal you cant go wrong with this pedal.

Don't Morph

By JeekersCripe

from Cape Cod, MA

See all my reviews

Comments about DigiTech DF-7 Distortion Factory Modeling Pedal:

When I first got this pedal I thought it was great. You can morph to several different classic pedal sounds. But after awhile you realize that you really are stuck with those morphs and you can't dial in your own distortion tone. You might find 2 of the morphs you like but you would be better off with the more versatile Marshall Guv 2 pedal which has treble, mid, deep and bass controls so you can dial in your favorite tone.

Comments about DigiTech DF-7 Distortion Factory Modeling Pedal:

This thing rocks. My fav are the Ibanez, metal master, and metal zone, and boss overdrive. The metal master and metal zone go REALLY nice together. The metal master has a sweet vibrating tone to it at the end of the note or chord. The metal zone has that real umpf to it. metal master and metal zone compliment each other very nicely, making for a really really heavy distortion.
