The DigiTech Jimi Hendrix Experience guitar pedal is a multi-effects unit designed after classic Jimi Hendrix guitar tones. The pedal was actually designed in tandem with Eddie Kramer who was Hendrix's audio engineer. The pedal has 1/4 inch connections and is not a rack mountable unit. It is powered by the specific power supply that comes with it.
The configuration of the DigiTech Jimi Hendrix Experience pedal is pretty basic as it four knobs that each have a few uses. The first knob has an upper and lower and dial for gain and level while the other two have dials for four different types of controls. The knob all the way on the left is to choose the mode, which there are seven to choose from. Each mode is different tone modeled after specific Hendrix tunes. The manual for this pedal is pretty thorough but is easy enough to use that you don't really need it.
The sound quality of the DigiTech Jimi Hendrix Experience pedal is overall very good. It has a wide array of different tones as it has seven very different modes and plenty of parameters over your tone control. I usually use this pedal with a Fender Strat or a Gibson SG plugged into a 1976 Fender Twin Reverb amp and I'm always happy with the results I get for recording or live shows. While the tones on this pedal aren't exact replicas of the classic tones played by Jimi, they are definitely pretty close and accurate. Regardless of if they are exactly replicated notes or not, they definitely sound pretty great no matter whether you are trying to emulate Jimi's sound or not.
I've been using the DigiTech Jimi Hendrix Experience for about a year and its not only a unique and great sounding pedal but is extremely fun to play around with. If you are a fan of Hendrix, which just about every guitar player is, this pedal is a worth a try. The different modes and parameters make it versatile and its awesome to be able to replicate so many different Hendrix tones in one pedal. I think DigiTech did an overall great job with this pedal and it is a must try for any Hendrix fan.

I must say that in the clean channel (fender type) my tube amp, it works perfectly.
we recognize immediately the sounds of pieces.
Following an exchange of my wha I recovered this beast !!!
the pedal is to be taken as a compact multi-effects pedal rather than a wha-wha
The pedal switches are hard (almost impossible to play sitting with) ... but standing, we manage to get by.
short pleasantly surprised and very happy with this.

DigiTech Jimi Hendrix Experience
in total there are 7 sound modes:
1. purple haze (1 channel 1 channel and the intro with his solo fuze)
2. The Wind Cries Mary (like the one a solo intro)
3. foxy lady (same one a solo intro)
4. little wing (ditto)
5. all along the watchtower (3 sounds: a very clean intro slam, a solo intro distortion, reverb with a magnificent solo whawha)
6. voodoo child (three sounds: an intro wha, wha 2 without distortion, with distortion wha 3)
7. Machine Gun / star spangled banner (with a clean roto, roto with a disto)
or 16 sounds in total, including three different whawha ...
serves wha pedal or control the effects (reverb flanger roto)
there is a treble knob, a bass, a reverb (type and level), a volume gain + and one for chaner sounds.
output mix or mono amp, amp or stereo output mix.
simple and the manual is clear and editing too. ease of use with the pedal FS3X but not a requirement either.
some of his monstrous and other really well. the only set back is purple haze even though it is not so bad.
The whawha are excellent, the fuzz of foxy lady are huge and clean little wind, the wind cries mary and all along the watchtower provides exceptional brilliance and a slamming and more interesting effects which are adjustable.
The gain of machine gun in position 2 is really too monstrous.
The thing more: the stereo with some really great stereo effects. to test the headphone is huge in my JamHub.
I sought a wha pedal. For € 140 in the bottom bracket with occas FS3X to me is also usable with my solo jamman I'm super happy. 2 years of use and not about to part with.
The default is that some sounds sound a bit synthetic but it's very relative (nothing to do with my pocket pod!) In effect for the color in a warm lamp amp is great if not coupled with my blackstar ht dual fact that the as well.
