About Digitech Pedals

Digitech are a major effects manufacturer from Utah in the US. Digitech make effects pedals, rack units and multi-fx units. There most famous creation is perhaps the Whammy pedal, an innovative real-time pitch shifting device that has become a defining sound in modern rock music.

Digitech are known for their inventive and ground breaking devices. Pedals like the Trio and the JamMan have brought looping technology and band accompaniment to solo musicians. Some Digitech pedals, like the Buzz Box, for example, have become revered collector's items.

Digitech pedals are known to be extremely hard wearing tools for gigging players. They have a lot of sonic character and are relatively distinct among mainstream pedal companies for offering original designs rather than variations of classic sounds.
