Now, working closely with Brian May and under the watchful eye of legendary recording engineer and producer Eddie Kramer, DigiTech is recreating seven of Brian's classic, signature tones by applying its proprietary technology called Production Modeling. The Brian May Artist Series Pedal furthers DigiTech's philosophy of developing products designed to supply guitarists with the best sounding, most creative tools possible.

Working closely with Brian, legendary producer Eddie Kramer and the entire DigiTech R&D department, we have employed our Production Modeling technology ensuring absolute accuracy in duplicating Brian's tone, stated David Rohrer, DigiTech Market Manager for Guitar Products. Now guitarists can either use Brian's seven presets to recreate his classic tone, or just use them as a starting point to create their own sound. It is a very powerful and flexible pedal that will rock the world.

DigiTech's breakthrough Production Modeling is being used to reproduce the studio and live guitar sounds, including effects and processing, of Brian May. This includes modeling the speaker cabinets, microphones and microphone placements, pre and post effects, and the recording engineer's production magic. Every aspect of the signal chain has been considered and recreated, resulting in completely accurate models of Brian's tones.

Commenting on working with DigiTech to create his new Artist Series Pedal, Brian May stated, "I'm very happy to be working with DigiTech on this project and Eddie Kramer, God bless you man, and I'll see you very soon."
