    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

    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

    not a 7 but an 8

    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

    Good Pedal, I guess

    By Sue donym

    from Planet Earth

    Comments about DigiTech DF-7 Distortion Factory Modeling Pedal:

    I got this pedal for Christmas a couple days ago, and it seems to do a decent job. The only distortion model where I have any experience with the original pedal is the metal zone, but this pedal seems to mimc it well. The one thing I didn't like about this pedal was that the distortions were kind of crisp and hi-fi. I like my distortion loud, wild, grindy, and nasty, but this certainly keeps it crisp. I usually use it on the TS-9 setting with the a lot of highs and very little mids that gives me a nice, cutting overdrive that's perfect for my playing style. All in all a good pedal, especially for versatile players.

    Good Bang for Buck Ratio

    By Robjob

    from Wyoming

    Comments about DigiTech DF-7 Distortion Factory Modeling Pedal:

    I own 2 RP units in the Digitech family so I though I would try this. I like it alot. My only complaint is how each of the 7 total sounds are affected alot when switching from mode to mode. Best 2 I have found to my liking is the Boss MZ, and the Digitech Metal. Playing with the EQ is a must on this box to really get a sound that is appealing. The amount of sound this puts out, puts my RP units to shame. The gain is amazing on 5 and 6 setting due to the gain circuts.Use at your own risk, I do not like some of the distortion sounds that are on here, but hey 7 stomp boxes in 1 aint a bad deal at all.

    Great if used right.

    By AngolaJonno

    from Indiana

    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!

    TONE GALORE

    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.

    Dont buy

    Comments about DigiTech DF-7 Distortion Factory Modeling Pedal:

    i bought this pedal thinking i could use it for almost anything. i've never been more wrong. i tried for hours to get a good sound out of it, but no matter what it was set to, there was absolutely no bass. this is the most hollow, digital sounding pedal i have ever used. DO NOT BUY IT

    The best for the low budget!

    By Rocket

    from Puerto Rico

    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.

    DONT BUY!!!!!!

    By Dean Player

    from Palmerton, PA

    Comments about DigiTech DF-7 Distortion Factory Modeling Pedal:

    I have had this pedal for a while and I can say that when I first got this pedal it sounded pretty good, but then when I wanted to crank up the distortion it just started to sound like crap so I would recommend buying the boss metal core pedal because it is alot better then this peice of garbage.
