Digitech Guitar & Vocals Multi-Effects Pedals
Achieving the right sound is hard. Achieving the right sound is usually expensive. That's why Digitech have made it easier for you, with their range of multi-effects pedals that are surprisingly affordable.
First of all, we have the Element series. Designed for guitarists on a low budget you have up to 58 guitar effects in total, including the Digitech Whammy™ on the XP model (as made famous by Jack White of The White Stripes and The Raconteurs).
With 12 amp and 9 speaker cab settings you can mix and max to get the right tone that suits your style. Layer a few effects over the top and you have a quality guitar rig from only £69. If you aren't sure what sound you are after, you can experiment with one of the 200 presets and explore which effects compliment your style.
For guitarists who love to play at all hours, the designated headphone slot is an essential feature if you want to stay friendly with your neighbours. Practicing does not have to be a solitary task either - you can make use of the 45 drum loops or the Aux In socket which allows you to connect your iPod and play along with your favourite tracks.
With the ability to connect up to a mixer for direct recording in the studio and to hook up to an amp for live performances, these versatile Element pedals certainly pack a punch, and are at a great price. You can find out more about them below:Digitech Element Guitar Multi-Effects

Digitech RP360 XP Guitar Multi-Effects
Starting with the Live FX, Digitech claim that this provides studio quality effects for live performances. And they are right to make this claim - using licensed Lexicon Reverb along with delay, harmony, pitch shifting, distortion, modulation and a remarkable 70 second record time looper, the results are outstanding and can really spice up your live sound.
The Live Harmony focuses largely on providing brilliant harmonies by adding two additional voices when activated that can range between one octave below and one octave above. When paired with the looper that also provides 70 second recording time and unlimited overdubs, solo artists can sound like full blown choirs whilst delivering powerful live performances thanks to this little box.
Both use the latest dbx feedback compression, halting any feedback in its way using the automatic 12 filters to ensure live performances run smoothly. The Live Adapt and musIQ™ technology listens to you and automatically sets the tempo, noise gate levels and harmonies so that you can focus on what really matters, whilst the Gold Channel mic pre allows these pedals to provide fantastic audio clarity.

DOD Guitar Effects Pedals Return
After something a little more boutique? The elegant DOD guitar effects have returned for a limited amount of time.
Lets go right back to 1974 when two friends got together and started building pedals for a bit of extra cash in between gigs. Their band didn't take off, but their pedals certainly did.
Returning to their true roots, the new Overdrive Preamp 250 and Phasor 201 deliver those classic analog tones that have influenced music throughout the last 40 years. Featuring true bypass, a modern power jack, lightweight alluminuim casing and a crisp LED light, these pedals boast sheer class in a simplistic manner. These reissues certainly represent the 'more is less' philosophy in a brilliant light - they don't do much, but they are true masters of what they can do. Add one of these to your pedalboard and you will thank yourself for years to come.
So whether you are after an all-in-one guitar pedal, a vocal processor or a simplistic boutique pedal, our new range of Digitech and DOD pedals are now available for preorder here.
