This morning I stumbled upon a interesting pedal that is no longer in production by Digitech. It’s the Jimi Hendrix Experience expression pedal. It’s a multi-tone stomp box with a expression pedal to switch from lead to rhythm on classic Jimi Hendrix songs. There are multiple settings or modelings:
Purple Haze – Intro and solo:
Based on: Fuzz Face; 100-Watt Marshall
Super Lead Amp; EMT Plate Reverb; Roger Mayer Octavia (solo)
Little Wing – Intro and Solo:
Based on: 100-Watt Marshall Super Lead
Amp; Miniature Rotary Speaker (Homemade at Olympic Studios in England)
Voodoo Child – Intro and Solo:
Based on: Vox Clyde McCoy Wah;
Brown Fender Bassman Amplifier; EMT Plate Reverb
All Along the Watch Tower – Intro and Solo:
Based on: Acoustic
Guitar; 100-Watt Marshall Super Lead Amplifier; EMT Plate Reverb
Plus three more models
Here is the official description of this pedal:
SEVEN Signature Tones that changed the world forever.
Eddie Kramer, Jimi’s engineer at Olympic and Electric Lady Studio, was an essential part of the Hendrix sound. Who better to help recreate those timeless tones than the man who set up the original mics and ran the mixing board adding his own magic? Working with DigiTech and our proprietary Production Modeling technology, he helped rebuild each facet of Jimi’s tone, from guitar effects and amp to the vintage outboard signal processors.
But it gets even better. Thanks to Eddie and the Hendrix family, we were able to use the original tapes as a reference source for our Production Modeling technology. The results of this once-in-a-lifetime project will amaze you when you hear the Jimi Hendrix Experience pedal.
