    i saw another poster linked the vid to the hardwire reverb pedal with the Lexicon technology. very cool !also the hardwire delay/sampler vid is up.

    i just ordered the tl2 metal distortion from spotlight music in CO. cant wait to get it. then the hardwire tuner pedal will be next.

    the specs etc on these new Hardwire pedals look amazing. its like a boutique/production pedal.lol

    and they are made in the USA.

    your opinions/thoughts?

    I guess they are called hardwire because they have a hardwire bypass?

    I think musicians friend will probably sell them as 'true bypass' then. lol

    I might give the chorus a shot.

    Kind of a bad move to come out with a pedal that seems very similar to the much-better known TU-2 at the same price... even more so now that the Korg Pitchblack has come along. I can't even find how accurate it is.

    Ditto for the Delay/looper, priced the same as the DD-7 but with no external tap.

    The reverb pedal looks promising, though, and the tails on/off switch is a cool idea.

    the delay/ looper has a built in tap tempo which is better imo. i also have the tu-2 which is a good pedal tuner but a little wierd in the tracking dept.
    i think this one will be better.

    The DD-7 has built in tap tempo also.

    i've got one of the reverb boxes on the way but I don't think I really need any of the others right now unless one of them comes out and really turns heads... but i'm pretty excited for studio quality reverse reverb in a stomp.

    Aren't some of these just TB versions of their old pedals with more headroom and a fancy case with protective cover for the knobs?

    The Lexicon reverb sounds like a good idea, but I'd wanna hear clips before I buy.

    Kinda sounds like your spreading some unconfirmed info. What exactly are you referring to?

    Digitech has gone "boutique", haven't we all?

    The reverb pedal having the Lexicon reverb in it, if it's as good as any of the Lexicon unit's I have, it'll be the best reverb pedal on the market.

    That's "you're".

    Nothing in particular. I was just wondering. And I'm not spreading anything. That came across as a bit defensive, don't you think?
    I made no assertions at all. I asked a perfectly legitimate question.

    Overall, I think Digitech's products have gotten progressively better in the last 4 or 5 years. I have no issues with them. If you'd read my signature, you'd notice I even own a few.

    I simply asked if we're in for more of the same with nicer packaging, or a truly innovative product at a $100 pricepoint. I think that's a fair question. And I think it's a question on the minds of many of us here at TGP. Or do we not have that freedom here? :tapedshut :D

    Cheers,
    D2R

    Of course you have the freedom to discuss whatever you would like here. That is what the forum is for. The same reasoning behind my question of "what exactly you were referring to?".

    I wasn't being defensive at all, I was really wondering what you were referring to. (one of the short comings of forums and emails is how the reader interprets the info.) The question prompted me to go look at the Hardwire line and try and draw similarities of the Digitech pedals.

    Has anyone tried these? Specifically, the delay? I'm wondering how it might compare to the DD-7.

    How are the X-Series compressors with the DBX processors in them? Seems like they're using a similar marketing strategy of coming out with a new line of colorful pedals and including circuitry from a rack-style unit. I guess this is what sparked my initial question about repackaging and hard bypassing the old pedals to showcase their new Lexicon flagship.
    Just as curious is all.
