DigiTech DHH Hot Head Analog-Distortion

Quick Overview:

This distortion pedal produces multi-purpose distortion and is controlled with level, low, high and gain controls. The addition of both low and high (frequency) knobs allows the user to really customize the eq of the outputted sound. Unlike most pedals which feature a signal that rolls off either low or high end, the DHH actually allows you to get a tone that can fit into a mix of instruments.

DigiTech DHH Hot Head Analog-Distortion

This pedal is designed with modern rock guitarists in mind. The kind of guys who are recording digitally. The sound is decidedly “modern” to my ears. You can put a bit of gain on and get a sort of raspy sound or you can turn the gain knob up and get a sound that approximates a full stack. The pedal isn’t bad at producing modern rock tones but I don’t think it sounds as great as a stack. This pedal could be useful for someone who has a small practice amp, and/or likes to record but also wants to be able to plug into an amp and get a distorted tone. This is what makes the pedal a bit more versatile than a standard distortion pedal. In this way, you can plug into the amp and get a tone and also record with a tone. The distortion produced by the pedal sounds pretty good and is really customizable with the knobs but I actually don’t think it sounds as good as my V-Amp Pro on the ultimate setting! However, for those of you who need a more modern distortion than a DS-1 can provide, this pedal might work for you.
