      Digitech Hardwire Series TL-2 Metal Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal (105018675)
Availability:  


Blazing metal distortion with true bypass.

The DigiTech HardWire Series TL-2 is a metal distortion pedal that lets you pick your poison. Metal can come at you fast with tight low-end and a crunching top—or stalk you slowly with a low, throaty roar that sizzles on the high end. The TL-2 distortion pedal's Tight/Loose switch controls the "tightness" of the low end and adjusts the midrange frequency to provide the best overall tone. Level, Gain, and Low, Mid and High tone controls with sweepable midrange allow you to dial in any tone with ease.

The HardWire pedals series represents the DigiTech commitment to quality and attention to subtle details. In addition to technical enhancements like true bypass and high voltage operation, all HardWire pedals feature rugged, all-metal construction; a wide, stage-stable footprint; durable, custom-machined metal knobs for a sure grip; and precision potentiometers that guarantee knob positions will stay intact.

The rugged, durable construction of Extreme Performance Pedals is just the beginning. Inside each HardWire pedal are technological features that serious players require—all updated and improved to their utmost capacity. True bypass preserves the purity of your original tone as signal passes through the pedal, and high voltage operation further protects your sound by eliminating clipping and other signal degradation caused by power drain.

With the high-output pickups found on some electric guitars, it's not unusual to hear clipping when playing through an effects pedal. This occurs when the voltage range produced by a guitar's pickup is greater than the operating voltage of the effects pedal—normally limited to the voltage supplied by the effect's battery or power supply. HardWire pedals incorporate circuitry that increases the operating voltage headroom above that of the typical pedal. As such, HardWire pedals benefit a wider range of guitars and are also at home in an amplifier's effects loop.

HardWire Pedals include the following stage accessories:
Stomplock™ knob guard locks your tone in place and prevent tampering or accidental knob adjustments onstage
Pedal Switch Glow Sticker helps you locate the pedal in adverse stage lighting
Custom-cut Hook and Loop Pedalboard Pad to attach and lock your pedals to your pedalboard

  • WOW, I want 2

    As reviewed by Ryan Deusenberry on 9/12/2009

    Wow, I was wondering about how the new digitech Hardwires were going to sound. I only use Digitech pedals, and I wanted a little more. I use the Metal Master, and this one kicks some series butt. So now I use both metal pedals. for diferent sounds. i love both the tight and loose setting. And I was amazed at how the highs come out more clearer, and just add a little chorus and the sound is even more amazing. If you're in the market for a good distortion pedal look no further than the TL2 pedal, it just works for everyone.

  • Versatility!!!

    As reviewed by Jackson on 5/3/2010

    I was at GC and decided to try this pedal. I ran it side by side with all the popular ones -- Metal Zone, etc. This pedal stood out BIG TIME! Don't be fooled -- it can get many sounds other than "Metal" -- whatever you want, really. To me, the #1 feature is the sweepable mid on the eq -- this is invaluable to anyone's guitar sound because it allows you to "dial in" the sweet tone that your amp wants to produce. Also, it's built like a tank, has a blue indicator light which is REAL easy to see in the dark, and it is true-bypass. This pedal ROCKS!!! I've been playing out for 20+ years and this is the first pedal that's ever made me feel compelled to submit a review! Nice Job Digitech!

  • METAL!

    As reviewed by zombie89 on 2/20/2010

    I was a little skeptical before buying this, but let me tell you, this pedal is amazing and very versatile. I was looking for a pedal with a lot of low end and chunky palm mutes but screamed on the high notes and this pedal does it all. Little tweaks with the knobs changes your sound a lot which is great. If your looking for a heavy pedal, look no further my friends. buy it NOW
