The first guitar pedal to capture transistor radio and megaphone lo-fi sounds!
Best used at the end of a signal chain in combination with other pedals, the Ibanez LF7 from the Tone-Lok series creates wide and wild soundscapes of far-out tones that used to require a rack of vintage analog gear. It also performs well with vocals, drum machines, or in any mix-down context.
On the outside, Tone-Lok effects are equipped with the Ibanez exclusive "set and forget" Push-Lok rotary pots. Push the knobs down and your tone settings lock securely inside the case”no more lost settings or broken knobs.
On the inside, Tone-Lok pedals feature hi-fidelity components carefully tweaked with the constant input from a new generation of Ibanez players. And all this great stuff comes encased in cool looking, road-tough metal boxes at prices the working player can afford.
- Creates lo-fi tones that used to require ancient analog gear
- For guitar, but works well with vocals, drum machines, or any mix-down context

This pedal is absolutely perfect. I don't think many people really understand what this pedal is for, and even though I'm not 100% sure I'll tell you how I use it personally. This pedal is just great for making your parts really small and thin if you need it. It sounds stupid at first, but it really creates great dynamics. You hear this effect on intros and bridges to sooo many hit songs. The intro to American Idiot by Green Day, or Cross My Heart by Marianas Trench. This effect is also used in the bridge after the solo in Almost Easy by Avenged Sevenfold, and the intro to Bat Country by the same band. These are great examples of how to use this pedal. Using it for an intro will make a bigger kick when you turn it off for the first verse. Using it during a bridge will make that final chorus sound HUGE once the pedal is turned off. It really is a tool that can make your live dynamics just as big as in the studio without having dozens of pedals to control your volume and EQ settings to get the same effect.
Besides using it as a tool for dynamics," it can create a great jazz tone. Most jazz players simply roll back the tone knob on their guitars to get that ""mattress in front of the amp"" tone for their jazz playing", but using this LF7 you can also make it sound like it's coming through an old radio from the 1940's! Very cool to listen to and is not just a gimmick. It really shines through with distorted tones more than the cleans, but both seem to sound just fantastic with this pedal.
Overall this pedal is a great tool for live use and you'd be surprised just how much you can use this pedal! Get it now!
This is a cool pedal. Turn the lo and hi cut all the way down and it sounds like telephone quality. The point of this pedal is to give a low fidelity sound which is good for giving a song a better sense of dynamic range and texture too. I would say beginners wouldn't need this pedal, but definitely worth the money anyway...I like it...listen to the clips!
I've had this for several years. Very tweakable sound, from a little lo-fi subtlty, to all out megaphone, or singing through a harmonica mic-style breakup. I love the way it sounds. Mine, however has a shoddy stomp mechanism. It was fine for over a year, but now I have to stomp with all my might to turn it on or off, and it's an iffy thing even then. I like it enough that I am seriously considering buying another (this time with an extended warrenty) to replace the first. Take that for what it's worth.
When i bought this pedal and plugged it in with my guitar i noticed the amp sounded better with no feedback, and it made my stratocaster sound like a telecaster with the drive up full. Works awesome with my Boss DS-1 distortion pedal.
I bought this almost a year ago and returned it a few days later, I was disatisfied with the sound quality.
this little devil is so cool. having owned and trashed a million pedals, this is the only "lo-fi" pedal i've ever come across. its basically the opposite of a boost pedal. great for little breaks in a song where its just u and ur guitar, without the rest of the band. it gives u that "down the hall" distance by cutting out all the low end. just as a boost pedal is great for soloing, this is equally good for foreshadowing. and at this price ... i would happily pay much more for it
A while back, I became curious to what sort of effect was used vocally for songs like Gorillaz' "O' Green World" and Tool's "Eulogy". And then I bought the Ibanez LF7.This pedal is amazing. I'll admit, it's not a pedal for everyone, but for those who know what sound they want, this metal box is a tone king. Vocally, with a small touch of reverb and close dialing, you can get everything from megaphone to telephone, and for guitar, it's possibilities are limitless. On clean settings, you can get an AM radio sound, which is great for intros, but it's on a distorted setting that this pedal shines. I've been able to turn my solid state amp's tone from warm tube jazz to vintage 80's shred with only a press of a button.As I've said, this isn't for everyone, but for anyone who stresses over tone, it's must-have. Try it for yourself and be the judge.
I mainly use it for jumping into the backround of the music, or to add an amzing amount of crunch.Its really a distortion pedal add-on, without gain backing it up its really thin,.You can get a good range of tones out of it, and if you experiment with it, youll find some really interesting applications for it.For the most part I dont think that many people will use it to its full potential, experimental people should buy it quickly though.Well worth it.
