EX-7 Expression Factory Features Expression And Classic Distortions 11/01/06
DigiTech has launched the EX-7 Expression Factory pedal which models seven of the all-time greatest
expression pedals and adds seven classic distortion models from the DigiTech
DF-7 Distortion Factory.
Designed for guitarists looking for a broad range of expressive
capabilities and a wide tonal palette, the EX-7 offers not only
models of vintage and modern expression pedal effects, but also models
of authentic distortion stompboxes, and a Flexible Output Mode
with separate amp and CIT mixer outputs.
The following expression pedal models are included:
Model one is based on the Dunlop Cry Baby
one of the most popular wah pedals of all time, with a thick tone recalling
the best of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Model two is based on the VOX Clyde McCoy Wah
the original from 1966, named for famed trumpet player Clyde
Model three is based upon the DigiTech XP300 Space Station/Synth
Swell modeling the most popular tone produced by a rare
pedal, Synth Swell turns your guitar into an outer-space string orchestra.
Model four is based on the DigiTech Whammy
an infinite array of smooth pitch bends, rich detuning, deadly dive
bombs and harmony shifts.
Model five is based on the Unicord Uni-Vibe
the standard for adding lush depth and dimension to guitar sounds; provides
both vibrato and chorus.
Model six is based upon the Leslie 147 rotary speaker
a meticulous model of the seminal Leslie 147 rotary speaker
cabinet; all the sound of the original, without the 160-lb. weight.
Model seven is based on the A/DA Flanger
the Holy Grail of flangers, with dramatic jet-engine fly-by sweep and
built-in foot control.
To expand the pedals creative and expressive possibilities,
the EX-7 Expression Factory includes seven distortion models from the
DF-7, which models all the nuances, drive and vibe of seven classic
distortion pedals, including models based on the Ibanez TS-9 Tube
Screamer, DOD Overdrive/Preamp 250, Boss DS-1, Pro
Co Rat, Boss MT-2 Metal Zone, DigiTechs own
Metal Master, and Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi.
The pedal features three dual concentric
pots for hands-on control over expression and distortion model settings.
Dual amp and mixer outputs with DigiTech's CIT
cabinet modeling allow direct connection to amps and mixing consoles
utilizing a variety of popular speaker cabinet models. In addition,
the EX-7 can be employed as a dedicated volume pedal if the Effect model
is bypassed. An optional FS3X 3-button footswitch can be connected to
the EX-7 for even more performance control.
Housed in a tough metal enclosure with a rugged cast-metal
treadle and unique carbon-fiber look, the EX-7 has
a non-slip rubber base and is built to withstand years of rigorous use.
Powered by the included DigiTech PS0913B Power Supply, the EX-7 comes
with a one-year warranty, supplemented by an additional five years of
coverage with a mail-in or online registration.
