MGR/Alex D.'s review"Ibanez DS7 Distortion"

Ibanez DS7 Distortion
I bought this pedal brand new on ebay for $35. I had a DOD Grunge and was looking for a wider range of distortion.

The DS7 is part of the Tone-Lok series, which allows you to find a good sound and "lock" the knobs so you won't lose your tone. The controls are Drive, Tone, and Level. This pedal gives a great range of distortion sounds. I think this pedal makes the best sounds when the Drive is set between 3 and 8. In that range, you can go from a classic crunch all the way to a modern heavy sound. I would say that this pedal stops just short of a metal sound. You could push it, but it would be better to get something heavier for metal. It gets a little fuzzy above 8. If you play any kind of rock, chances are you can find your sound in this pedal. I like to use a Danelectro Pastrami Overdrive for a slight overdriven sound, then add the DS7 for my full distortion sound (Drive: 4, Tone: 4). Even with the Drive only at 4 (with the slight overdrive in front of it), I get a solid distortion, heavy palm muting, with shiny harmonics and great sustain through my Epiphone Les Paul and Fender Princeton 65 amp.

The only improvement could be Bass and Treble controls instead of just a Tone control. This isn't that much of a problem. I get a good tone on my amp, and if you really want to fine tune your sound, you could get an EQ pedal.

This pedal is very sturdy. It is heavy and can take a beating. It has a metal casing and will not break if you have a heavy stomp. I expect to be using this pedal for a long time. I also like the look of the pedal. It looks like the quality product that it is.

I am very pleased with this pedal. The Tone-Lok series is a great innovation. I never have to worry about resetting the knobs. The DS7 is very reliable and is quite versatile. If you play rock, try this pedal. I would rate this pedal 4.7, but I'll round up for their rating system. Great distortion!

distortion pedal range tonelok Ibanez, everything is simple: one knob for level, tone of a knob, a knob of saturation level, in / out and socket.

most of this range of pedal: metal case, and retractable knobs, solid and reliable adjustment ..


seek with her is a bit complex: the saturation level does not increase past the 2/3, on the other hand after it gets a little boiled sound ...

idem, the tone does not abuse it, it's screaming fast, I do not exceed the first third, after that crunches ....

the unit level although the output level, no problem.


I use it for blues-rock with my cort CR250, so low saturation, it does it well.

see my settings above.

to make hard she can do it, but I think the sound is bad because you need to increase the tone and I think the record is gaudy, blah blah ...

Interestingly, it can also serve to boost like a TS9, but the sound is rather dry compared ...


the top is the strength and reliability of the settings, thanks to respectivment metal housing and retractable knobs.

at the price I got it, it's a good price / quality ratio, but there are better on the market.

Ibanez DS7 Distortion
This is one of Distortion pedals from home Ibanez. It includes everything from classic plsu mtal that it is, it works 9V battery or AC power and that there are three knobs on it: Drive, Tone and Volume (each ranging from 0 10).


Trs trs trs is simple, nothing special to say.


Are trs is effective for someone who wants to play both the Good Charlotte Manson as hard or more (in this case, wants to take the best of Fuzz pedals). However, this has the unfortunate tendency pedals add parsites when it plays it. This may just be scratching my (Ibanez EDR 170) because I know IRCT M600 there is none. So this adds the guitar pedals as parasites. She has another default: it shit but neighbors with his power: D


I got my Nawel (^ ^) and I am satisfied trs! If the pre nawel me had not I would buy intake without hsiter.

Ibanez DS7 Distortion
Beh is a simple distortion knob drive with 3 tone and level ...
Personal I like the look of this pedal too!


Beh's nothing complicated as you turn the knobs to vary the sound and it works pretty well is pressed for the meter to get the distortion or to stop, she has a true bypass, everything good!


Most important: I really enjoy the sound of this distortion, I use a washburn chicago series and I can have a good heavy distortion well, then turning down the volume on my guitar I go to a saturated its but more clear ... Finally I'm having good with, it is powerful enough to shake my wall ;-) and I do not get enough!


It's been a year now I have the ratio quality price is right, I just bought it after trying it. If this choice had to be rebuilt I would do, because I can not get enough of all ...
