    7 signature tones that changed the world forever.

    The Jimi Hendrix Experience Pedal is a must buy if you want Jimi's sounds and tones. DigiTech, with the Hendrix family and Jimi's engineer, Eddie Kramer, has put 7 of the most powerful sounds from Hendrix's library into a truly remarkable guitar effects pedal. The sounds were created using the original masters with Eddie Kramer, the original recording engineer at Electric Ladyland Studio, and advanced Production Modeling technology. 2 powerful AudioDNA DSP chips replicate with incredible detail the fine nuances of Jimi's sounds.

    Each facet of Jimi's tone was rebuilt from guitar effects and amps to the vintage outboard signal processors. The original tapes were used as a reference source for the process, ensuring the utmost accuracy.

    Features

    • 7 signature Jimi Hendrix tones
    • Production Modeling technology
    • 3 concentric knobs and one model control
    • Flexible output modes: Mono, Stereo Amp, and Stereo Model modes
    • Custom artist pedal gig bag and pick
    • Rugged case metal chassis and large treadle
    • DigiTech pedal power supply
    • Purple Haze (intro and solo/based on: Fuzz Face; 100W Marshall Super Lead amp; EMT Plate Reverb; Roger Mayer Octavia [solo])
    • Foxey Lady
    • Little Wing (intro and solo/based on: 100W Marshall Super Lead amp; miniature rotary speaker (homemade at Olympic Studios in England)
    • Star Spangled Banner
    • Voodoo Child (intro and solo/based on: Vox Clyde McCoy Wah; Brown Fender Bassman amp; EMT Plate Reverb)
    • Wind Cries Mary

    The Jimi Hendrix Experience is the only pedal to capture the tones that changed guitar playing forever.

    I've owned this pedal for nearly a year, taken it all over the country and it's solid as a rock. I bothered to purchased the FS3X extension foot switch which allows for a more robust use of the pedal. It sounds great through both solid state and tube amps. I have yet to run it through an effects loop. The best aspect to this pedal is its versatility. While you can dial in the "Wind Cries Mary Sound," you can also add gain to the setting to make it crunchier, obviously for the playing of other songs. You get both class A gain and deeper, richer distortion out of it. The effects, such as wah or univibe can be adjusted on the pedal itself. It's not the case that the effects are set to a single sound one finds in a particular song. I think if you like blues/rock/rnb/ 60's or 70's style music you'll find this pedal useful.

    First of all, i've always been a Hendrix fan, like every other 2 billion guitarists out there, so I figured, this pedal is perfect. Not only will I sound just like Jimi, but I'll save money by getting all these effects and fuzzes in one. I tried it out before I bought it and all, and I liked it alot. So I took it home and the first thing I noticed was it was nearly impossible to press the toe swith (to turn on the green light, which means i got a faulty one). But I kept it anyway, managing to get by with using all of my body weight in two or three attempts whenever turning the toe switch on or off. Well, I suddenly realized about a month in, that I have no choice but to sound exactly like Jimi with this pedal. Its not very versatile. I like the sounds, epecially the wah, which is very clean, just not deep enough for my taste. So It's been a year since I bought it, and I just about wan't to sell it for a crybaby or vox wah. It's honestly not worth all the mumbo jumbos unless you are a Jimi Hendrix cover guitarist. It is really fun to play voodoo chile or the wind cries mary 30 times a night but the sound is so limited. I can't write my own music with this for sure, even though it would make sense to be able to. On top of all this, you must use a special power adaptor (no battery slots) thats about 3 feet long, which is convenient but not if you dont have an available outlet. The fuzz face tones are really muddy and really make me wonder how Jimi played so clean, and finally I find myself only using the wah, occasionally the univibe. I never use the fuzz or the little wing channel (even though i love the song, specially SRV's version.) I think if you're thinking about buying this, think twice. All of the effects and tones are just so much less accessible than one would think, trust me. Overall, I wouldn't recommend using this as a sound addition because you have no choice but to play Jimis songs labeled. I don't even like the tone on most of the channels. A good idea by digitech, but not versatile enough for an original guitarist.

    Are you Kidding?

    By Use Your Ears

    from Florida

    Just listen to the clips - Hendrix used a fuzz into the front of a marshall - this thing doesn't do fuzz or drive, its straight ahead distortion. It sounds like a used metal zone pedal. Not worth the shipping.

    The Hendrix Sound!

    By SoulPig

    from Land Of Oz,Ks

    I recently bought this pedal, the effects are excellent!You probably cannot get Jimi's sound any closer than what this pedal gives you. It's only negative is the "toe up" and "heel down" feature's to go from intro to solo, you really have to push the pedal hard to switch from each sound. So durability would be the question here. But I own other Digitech pedals and must say they do their homework when it comes to sound and durability!!! Price was a little steep for the effects you get, compared to other Digitech products. Bottom line, you won't regret buying this pedal, it gives you excellent effects with endless hours of playabilty with the included a/c adapter!!! Yet another awesome job Digitech!!!!!!

    Awesome Pedal for Great Price

    Wow I love this pedal. I got over a month ago and it doesn't disappoint. Some of the fuzz/distortion settings sound alike, but its little nuances that differentiate each of them. The wah function on Voodoo Child and All along the Watchtower settings are my favorites along with the tape delay on Little Wing. A must for anyone who wants a classic sound thats versatile enough to fit modern music.

    Exceeded expectations!!

    By Voodoo Child Jr.-(Haha)

    from Central Illinois

    I figured for the money it was going to be pretty good, but WOW...gives you that tone, you still gotta give it the right touch, feel, etc. but you can coax a very convincing Hendrix vibe out in short order if you already know how to go about the guitar end of things. Very well built, heavy. Nice range of control, reset is nice if things get outa whack. Well thought out product. It delivers!

    from Las Angeles Califiornia

    I bought this pedal acouple years ago and it is amazing all of the premade models on it have great sound, I use it when im touring with my band and we do alot of hendrix covers, it's awesome to almost get the same sound as jimi Digitech has been really doing there homework.

    Fun little thing

    By TonyTubes

    from Montreal, QC

    I waited a full year of using this pedal to write a review. It, in my opinion, is a terrific pedal that, although not completely accurate to Jimi's vibe, is well worth the money for the multitudes of effects that it provides. Easily one of the most versatile and fun multieffects I've used.

    Great Pedal Little Diversity

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    This is a great pedal when played with my strat. The pedal does HENDRIX well, and that's about it the wah is good not great but you can't go wrong with this pedal as far as experimenting with sounds you don't typically use in your setup. Great pedal, glad I own it, no regrets. If you are a HENDRIX fan, get the pedal, because its HENDRIX!!!

    Amazing Pedal

    This pedal is definitely worth the price. One can achieve many different sounds. Buying individual pedals to get as many sounds would cost well over this price.It is not hard to setup. Just read through the directions first. I would suggest making a copy of the sound chart in the book using Microsoft Excel or Word. This way you can have the chart on your music stand until you get used to where each sound is.Switching between the different modes in the pedal is tricky until you get used to it. Using the heel switch to change modes is the tricky part. You must get your heel on the very end of the switch and apply a general amount of pressure. At first it is slightly awkward to tilt your foot back far enough to change modes but you will get used to it. Make sure you keep your guitar cable clear of the switch otherwise you will be unsuccessfully trying to change modes until you realize where the cable is.I need to seriously upgrade my electric guitar equipment (bought a few nice acoustics first) but this pedal makes my Epiphone by Gibson Strat style guitar and little practice amp sound good!
