Product Description7 Signature Tones that Rocked the World
The Brian May Red Special Pedal lets you bring your own personal creations to life using one of rock's most distinctive guitar tones.
Working closely with Brian May and Eddie Kramer, Senior Production Modeling Consultant (and world-class recording engineer), DigiTech's Production Modeling team delivers the tone that has inspired a generation of guitarists. The meticulously crafted tones of the Red Special Pedal are modeled 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. They've even included a proprietary guitar knob that re-voices your guitar to sound like Brian's legendary Red Special's Burns Tri-Sonic pickups.
"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!) Through an incredible new modeling technique, this pedal captures 14 of the most memorable tones I've achieved for Queen over the years...Plug in and turn it up - and ROCK! Cheers!" -- Brian May
