I know everybody here knows the story around the digitech protype pedal but here’s more on the pedal from the guy who owns both prototypes

Cool, I thought it might have been like a distortion/ volume or distortion/wah combo by the way it looked. But still,both of the pedals sounds are definately usable.

wow never heard of that pedal. It actually sounds pretty damn closing to Tribute for soloing. But when playing riffs it sounds like crap.

Aperently in 2005/2006 the Rhoads estate was contacted about creating a randy Rhoads style digitech pedal that could emulate Randy’s tone. The baseline for his tone was the tribute Album tone so they sent this prototype pedal to this guy for testing he gave them feedback and they sent him a second updated pedal and something must have fell through between the roads estate and digitech because it never went into full production. As far as information goes these 2 prototype pedals this guy own are the only existing ones.


I honestly would love to know why they never went into full production, I think with a good EQ behind it, it could sound pretty decent

Really cool, I had never heard of this. On the leads the tone is pretty spot on. Wish that would have been produced.

Speaking of guitar tones, that tone that Randy had on the Albuquerque clips are fuckin' killer.

Randy’s tone on both albums was really nothing like his live tone. Crazy Train by far is the most nasal out of all the tracks with Ozzy. All of the other songs sound less nasally for the most part. But, no matter how much the Crazy Train tone “sucks”, its fits the song perfect. As does the rest of the songs.

I mean really…have you guys heard all the other studio versions of Crazy Train written in honor of him? Or even the live versions that have been in tribute to him or the albums. The songs sounds like absolute garbage.

I've always loved the studio tone on Suicide Solution... that song played LOUD is just awesome.

Although impossible without the same complete rig, a pedal based on the Montreal/Cleveland sound would be interesting!
