The power to drive your distortion sound, no matter the style.

The DigiTech Hot Head Distortion Pedal is what you want when you need some grit. The multipurpose Hot Head distortion pedal has flexible controls that let you dial in the right tone for your setup. If you want just a little dirt or you need your amp to sound like a raging stack, the DigiTech Hot Head Guitar Pedal can do it. Low and High tone controls give you the flexibility to boost or cut the bass and treble frequencies, the Level knob boosts the output level of your signal, and the Gain knob dials up mild to wild distortion. The Amp output runs into the input of your amplifier and the dedicated Mixer output has a cabinet emulation circuit that lets you run direct into a mixer or recorder when you don't want to lug your amp along.

Features

  • High, Low, Level, and Gain controls

A pedal for this, a pedal for that—what a pain. You'll outgrow your pedalboard before you get it right. Just get one distortion pedal that can do it all. Order now.

Awesome Pedal!

Great pedal! Love the fact you can use it just as a boost pedal, but you can also crank up the gain for full blown hardcore rock! Nice EQ as well! Awesome pedal!...Read complete review

Super

By Joff

from Ireland

Comments about DigiTech Hot Head Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

This is my first pedal ever. It does the job. Enough knob to tweak the monster. The only thing is that when its on I hear a background noise in my amp. It could be something else tho. Great rock distortion, the booklet gives you 4 suggestions of tweaking also. Great for the price and its built like a tank.

EXTREEMLY HOT!

By Jim-Bybqx

from Mexico

Comments about DigiTech Hot Head Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

The sound you get out of this pedal is incredible; I wasn't expecting something this good fro less than 50 bucks. Great tone, extremely versatile. My only concern is that the level doesn't rise volume that much, and you have to rise it through the amp. There is really no reason not to get this! Great for any kind of music with need of a hot distortion.

Fun

By justin-Q1mhJ

from flordia

Comments about DigiTech Hot Head Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

This pedal is fun to play with. Gives a lot of good sounds. The only problem is if you use a 9 volt AC power adapter that is not a Digitech power adapter, then you'll blow the AC adapter. But this is with any pedal. This pedal gives a nice tone. Its also made good, and looks pretty nice too. Its a brighter orange color in real life. Get it!

Almost Like A Boss DS-1

By Brian Mc

from New Jersey

Comments about DigiTech Hot Head Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

When plugged into an amp, Digitech's Hot Head sounds a lot like a Boss DS-1. However, since it has more EQ, it is a lot easier to dial in a sound with. The cabinet emulation output works okay going direct into a mixer in a pinch, but this pedal sounds much better plugged into a guitar amp.This is one heck of a tool for heavy rock. In terms of distortion, it offers more than what the typical overdrive pedal provides. The distortion is somewhat smoother sounding compared to many other distortion pedals on the market. The Hot Head will probably become an instant classic. My only beef with it is quite minor. Digitech should package it with a power supply, because it will drain a battery fairly quickly. On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd give this pedal a 10. Considering other distortion pedals can sell for twice its' retail, don't have the features, and don't sound as good, this is quite a bargain.

analog distortion is great

Comments about DigiTech Hot Head Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

It's so much better sounding as are most analog pedals with no processor chip. The only 'digital' thing is the 2nd speaker simulated output.

decent box

By casey--z2LZ

from nashua nh

Comments about DigiTech Hot Head Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

This box is like the classic DS-1 Boss. Good for heavy, classic rock. It's definitely more powerful then the the blues one and bad monkey one. I tried them all at the store recently to compare. The hot rod one is more expensive but seems interesting. Seems like you can get this sound plus some others.
