Hardwire: Extreme Performance Pedals

Published: Tue March 17, 2009  News Feed


Extreme Performance Pedals represent the DigiTech commitment to quality and attention to subtle details. In addition to technical enhancements like true bypass and high voltage operation, all HardWire feature rugged, all-metal construction; a wide, stage-stable footprint; durable, custom-machined metal knobs for a sure grip; and precision potentiometers that guarantee knob positions will stay intact.

HardWire reflects an unprecedented level of craftsmanship that DigiTech is proud to introduce into the
world of effects pedals.

HardWire™ True Bypass
Serious musicians are highly selective in their guitar and amp choices. After all, it’s the foundation of their tone. Adding effects to their signal chain is done with great care and consideration. And when they turn off an effects pedal, they need to know it’s not creating undesirable noise or coloring the unique character of their tone. In a true bypass pedal, the signal passes straight through the box when the effect is bypassed (Figure 1). When it’s on, it’s on. When it’s off, it’s off. All HardWire pedals feature true bypass.

HardWire™ High Voltage Operation
With the high-output pickups found on some electric guitars, it’s not unusual to hear clipping when playing through an effects pedal. This occurs when the voltage range produced by a guitar’s pickup is greater than the operating voltage of the effects pedal – normally limited to the voltage supplied by the effect’s battery or power supply. HardWire pedals incorporate special circuitry that increases the operating voltage “headroom” above that of the typical pedal. As such, HardWire pedals benefit a wider range of guitars and are also at home in an amplifier’s effects loop.

HardWire™ Constant Voltage Output
Guitarists know that battery-powered effects typically perform their best with a fresh battery. As the voltage of the battery decreases, effects can become gritty and distorted. With HardWire pedals, the same circuitry that boosts the voltage also keeps it constant throughout the life of the battery. From sound check to the final bow, HardWire pedals perform flawlessly.
