OVERVIEW

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.

  • 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

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.

Awesome Pedal for Great Price

By jbstrat47

from NJ

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.

Worth every penny!!!!

By Bill M.

from O'Fallon, Missouri

First off, my rig consist of a Marshall JCM2000 Stack, with the following effects in the analog chain: Vox Clyde McCoy Wah, Fulltone Deja 2 Univibe Clone, and Fulltone Ultimate Octave Octavia and Fuzz device. Therefore, I have to say I was a bit skeptical when I head what this pedal can do. Well, all I can say is that it lives up to it's claims. The price of the pedal is worth using it for the Univibe feature alone. I concider this a "Must have" for every guitarist. The Univibe clone is also great for emulating the Robin Trower, SRV and Gilmore tones too. The wah sounds like my Clyde and the octavia is as searing an octive up as you can get.

Amazing Pedal

By Guitar33Dude

from PA

See all my reviews

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!

ALL JIMI

By LesPaulMan721

from Duluth, GA

See all my reviews

This is by far the greatest pedal out there. If you bought the effects this baby has separate you would end up paying a fortune. The models are very accurate and the concentric knobs are great. The little wing model and the voodoo child(slight return) are awesome. The actual pedal does a lot of different things on each model like switch between intro and solo/solo mode 2. The LED shows you which mode you are in. This puppy puts out an aray of effects including distortion, flange, rotary speaker, univibe, fuzz, and much more. You cant ask for more from a pedal.BUY IT.

Amazing Pedal

By StratPlayer_42

from Salem, IN

I've had this pedal for about a year now and all I can say is WOW. All the sounds are dead on & it's definately worth the money. It's hard to find a Univibe, Wah Wah, Octavia, Fuzz Face, & Lesley Speaker simiulation in 1 pedal. A must if you play Hendrix. And even if you don't, this pedal is still useful, "The Wind Cries Mary" lead tone is great for blues. The expression pedal takes a while to break in, & you need to tweak the settings a little, but once you do that, this thing is near perfect.

An Outta This World Pedal!!!

By Stratophonic

from Santiago, Dominican Republic.

See all my reviews

Ask me a question

I would have to agree with the fact that the toe switch doesn't really help too much. That fact aside I believe that for us, that's people who can't affort a Plexi, it's an amazing thing. This is a little tone dream, several distortions here are really, really creamy and crisp sounding....made out of real good rockin' taste.The solo tone on Purple Haze it's so dead on it' quite frankly rediculus.The Echo on the first solo on the All Along the Watchtower model is really addictive. That same delay with the wah in the second solo produces some serious mind bending sounds.The First solo on Voodoo Chile it's powerful yet creamy.The Foxy Lady Model it's quite simply FAT.I could go on and on, but trust me, if you adore Hendrix, Love Classic Rock and need to spice your licks. Just spend some time writing your lick and then add some phyquidelic colors with this THING. Ahh........If you are a Professional...Go for a Plexi.

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!!!!!!

Great Sound

By Mike in San Dimas

from San Dimas, CA

See all my reviews

The pedal is very clean as far as extraneous noise, even with a great deal of gain on the pedal. There is no hum when played through an amp that isn't otherwise humming or getting interference. You can set the volume and gain controls on the pedal such that you can have the amplifier on a very clean setting and engage the pedal with lots of attack and not have the volume between the two settings be so out of whack that if you switch the pedal on you are overpowering, or off and you are effectively unplugged.The only reason I gave the quality a "7" is how hard it is to push down the toe button on the pedal, but as a previous reviewer said: "It is getting easier with more use." I previously had to have shoes on to engage the toe pedal. The pedal seems to be made extremely tough and my feeling us it will last a very long time unless it suffers some accident. There seems to be no noise in the potentiometers, switches or the pedal itself. My problem is probably a blessing in disguise.The tonal quality is great whether you are using a tube amp, a solid state tube emulating amp, straight into a board or using a solid state power amp. Obviously, settings need to be changed when switching between output types.

Exceeded expectations!!

By Voodoo Child Jr.-(Haha)

from Central Illinois

See all my reviews

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!
