The DigiTech Hot Rod Rock Distortion is a distortion pedal made for use with the electric guitar. It has a 1/4 inch input as well as two 1/4 inch outputs and is powered by either a 9 volt battery or a power supply of the same voltage. It is not a rack mountable unit as it is a stomp box foot pedal.


The design of the DigiTech Hot Rod Rock Distortion is pretty basic and everyone should be able to figure out this pedal with ease. It simply has four different parameters for level, tone, gain and morph. Simply turn the knobs unit you are happy with the sound and thats really all there is to it. There isn't too much more to say on that and because of this the manual really isn't needed.


The sound of the DigiTech Hot Rod Rock Distortion is below average in my opinion. While you are able to get a good amount of varying distortion tones, most of them are too tinny for my taste. While you can get some decent sounds if you play with it for a while, I've stopped using this pedal because I have other options that are just as easy to use and sound way better. I have used this pedal mostly with either a Fender Strat or a Gibson SG with a '76 Fender Twin Reverb amp, so the sound I'm hearing is pretty accurate and true.


I first used the DigiTech Hot Rod Rock Distortion pedal about two years ago and can't really say that I would recommend this pedal. While easy to use, the tones aren't professional sounding enough and it doesn't provide enough punch for me. The price certainly makes this pedal an attractive option, but I would urge those interested in a distortion pedal to look elsewhere and try out some of the pedals that Boss has to offer, as they sound better and are comparable in price. Try this pedal if you must, but it doesn't do that much for me and my needs.
