Overview

With its stereo I/O, the DigiTech HardWire CR-7 is a chorus pedal offering you 7 chorus effects, ranging from Multivoice and Studio to Boutique, Vintage, and more. Precision control knobs include speed, depth, level, and type. True bypass and high-voltage operation are standard features on the DigiTech CR-7 pedal.

The DigiTech HardWire pedals series represents DigiTech's 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 DigiTech Extreme Performance Pedals is just the beginning. Inside each DigiTech HardWire pedal are technological features that serious players require—all updated and improved to their utmost. 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 pedal board Pad to attach and lock your pedals to your pedal board

I was looking for a pedal that could change the style of Chorus functions. Personally this pedal and other Hardwire line are well made. I play bass so... This pedal sure brings out the sound comparing to other chorus pedals. You try this one and will just blown you away. I had to sell my old pedal because it sounded so wimpy when you go back and compare the both.(CH-1) Having 7 chorus effect, that's where the money is. # Chorus Types * Studio�ۡ���� Studio quality chorus with a wide stereo image. * Multi �ۡ���� True 8-voice chorus; the lushest chorusing found in a pedal. * Modern �ۡ���� Rich and smooth dual voice chorusing. * Boutique �ۡ���� Special analog circuits that produce rich but quirky chorus sounds. * Analog �ۡ���� Distinct, organic bucket-brigade chorus. * Jazz �ۡ���� Single voice chorus with a dry output. * Vintage �ۡ���� Warm and versatile from subtle to euphoric. and the Precision control knobs. You could feel the details what your adjusting.

I have 3 tube amps(EVH 5150III, Fender Supersonic, Champ 600) and high quality cable set... I won't have noisy pedals in my chain. It's a nice chorus because of the many voices but it adds noise even in bypass! Not good, It was really noticeable when I put it in the chain. "True Bypass" ??? - I think that's the marketing guys talking, not the engineers.It's going back. I think I'm just going to pony up and buy a Red Witch.

    HardWire Series CR-7 Stereo Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal

    By Community User

    from Sydney, Australia

    Given the cost and what it represents perhaps i was expecting too much. Stad alone in a practice room it is a nice low cost chorus pedal but I don't think it is suitable for band play
    It has a wide variety of chorus options but they sound too digitized to my esar. That isn't too much ofan issue as you can always find the tone that suits, however i played at rehearsal with it last night for the first time and the chorus effect when kicked in sucked my sound away. I couldn't hesar mysefl over the other instruments which wasn't a problem when it wasn't on. I shall keep experimenting to see if that is something I can fix before I try some other chrous pedal
    Solid build, looks ok, should take reasonable use withut a problem

    Best Built Pedals on the Planet

    By Randall Bratcher

    from Oklahoma

    No other stand-alone pedal can match the features, construction, and quality of the Digitech Hardwire line of pedals.
    The multiple selection of chorus types sets the bar at a high level. The ultra quiet true bypass feature of the Digitech Hardwire line pedals is a must-have on any pedal, especially if used between the guitar and amp rather than in the effects loop.
    No other pedals come close the quality of the Digitech Hardwire line of pedals. My favorite pedals of all time were the non-defunct USA-made DOD pedals made in Sandy Park, Utah. Although the Digitech Hardwire pedals are made in China, the engineering design is out of Sandy Park, Utah. Same smooth micro-switch action as the USA-made DOD pedals versus the cumbersome and noisy "click-click" of the push-push switch on most other brand pedals. Machined billet aluminum control knobs versus cheap plastic knobs found on other brands. Same built like a tank cast body as the USA-made DOD pedals. The construction quality is second to none.
    Best pedal on the market for the money. Definitely not cheap, but well worth the expense if you are in the market for a quality product.

    Does a nice job...worth the $$

    By Byron123

    from NY NY NY NY

    I like a slow elegant chorus...understated and smooth...thats what you can get here...as well as other effects...I like it.. Have been through many, many chorus pedals....this one just about does it. A little trebly, but that can be EQ'd elswhere in the chain; and chorus is often go weird treble and bass issues. All in all this may be the one I keep, not perfect...but what is??
    Nicely built
    a bit pricey, i got mine used, so it was less so...if you got the $$ for it, i would pull the trigger

    Surprisingly Warm

    By J Stringfield

    from San Diego

    Don't let the name Digitech fool you. This is a very warm analog sounding pedal. I use this for so many songs that it never gets old.
    Many different chorus possibilities with this pedal from warbly George Harrison/Beatles lead guitar to early 1980s King Crimson full studio chorus sounds. Unlike other chorus pedals, which will only have two to three knobs/settings, this pedal is really versatile.
    Built like it can survive a drop from a building. This pedal has been tripped on, flipped over, trampled on and it still goes on strong.

    The sound quality is very suprisingly warm. I was in the market for a chorus pedal and found this. It beat out all of the others that I tried.
    Not too expensive and very high quality.

    Wired Out

    By Tone Obsessed

    from York, PA (nowhere)

    This is a pretty good pedal and is worth the coin if you can pick one up on sale. It's a bit bass heavy and thick sounding, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. A couple settings sound more like a flanger than a chorus, but that's not bad either: all of the settings are pretty good and offer their own distinct tone. Being digital, it's not as sweet sounding as say an MXR but it does sound pretty good regardless. A solid box.

    Hard On for HardWire

    By Pedalbored

    from Harlan, KY

    I played this pedal in Guitar Center awhile back and i tell ya fellow guitarist if your looking for a chorus pedal look no further. This pedal offers great control of your sound and a chorus of any desire i myself play mainly metal, but i do progressive stuff on the side and this chorus is definately on my wishlist. Great quality on all the options. Multi and Studio was amoung my favorite and the true bypass is a plus to. Comes with a stomplock so you dont knock your settings out live and has a glow in the dark stick to increase the visibility on stage. Also stereo output is a plus. Must have for anyone looking at buying a chorus pedal you'll never need to upgrade. I recommend power supply tho. I'm a big DigiTech fan own 5 DigiTech pedals now this one will make 6, but they all eat batteries like crazy. So get that power supply and add this to your board with no regrets.
