Digitech Brian May Red Special Artist Pedal
Dolphin Music and DigiTech are very pleased to announce that the latest pedal in the DigiTech Artist Series, the Brian May Red Special, will be shipping in June 2006.
The Brian May Red Special features seven signature sounds with fourteen unique variations, spanning over thirty years of tone. From the umistakable solos of "We Will Rock You" and "Bohemian Rhapsody" to the one and only 'Deacy' amp, the Brian May Red Special Pedal lets you walk in the footsteps of one of rock's most influential guitar masters and achieve one of guitarists' most sought-after tones.
"This piece of gear is, in my opinion, a work of genius! I claim no credit! An amazing DigiTech team led by legend Eddie Kramer have created a device capable of making anybody sound like me! (If you should want to, that is!) From the searing harmonically rich solo sound of Bohemian Rhapsody, to the churning saturated thickness of the climax of ‘We Will Rock You’, to the hitherto inimitable ‘Deacy’ amp tone, which I’ve used for years to create ‘orchestras’ of guitars on record, this device will shock you!" BRIAN MAY
Working closely with Brian May and Eddie Kramer, Senior Production Modelling Consultant (and world-class recording engineer), our Production ModellingTM team delivers the tone that has inspired a generation of guitarists. The meticulously crafted tones of the Red Special Pedal are modelled with the same gear used in the original recordings. Design your own unique tones using the Red Special Pedal's models and modes. Tweak the gain, level, bass, treble and control knobs to create your own tone.
The pedal also includes a proprietary guitar knob that re-voices your guitar to sound like Brian's legendary Red Special's BurnsTM Tri-Sonic pickups.
The Red Special Pedal's cast metal treadle also offers Heel and Toe switches that let you select two distinctive tone variations of each model. The LED lights Green (toe) or Red(heel) to show the selection.
The Brian May Red Special features DigiTech's Flexible Output ModeTM that lets you choose between mono amp or mixer, stereo mixer or stereo amp output options in setup during power-up, whilst simple hands-free control over model and tone selection is possible through compatibility with the optional FS3x footswitch.
