DigiTech Crossroads Artist Series Pedal at a Glance:

  • Guitar pedal designed in conjunction with Eric Clapton
  • Production Modeling Technology reproduces Clapton's sounds and effects
  • Seven legendary Clapton tones span from the 1960s to now

Guitar pedal designed in conjunction with Eric Clapton
The Crossroads Artist Series pedal was conceived in conjunction with Eric Clapton and his long-time guitar tech Lee Dickson. Crossroads models seven Clapton signature tones. From songs like "Badge" with its swirling Leslie, to "Layla" (Unplugged) with its intimate acoustic tone, and of course, "Sunshine of Your Love" which features Eric's signature "woman tone", Crossroads spans 30 years of Clapton culture and tone.

Production Modeling Technology reproduces Clapton's sounds and effects
To recreate Clapton's signature sounds for the Crossroads pedal, DigiTech engineers applied their exclusive Production Modeling Technology. This unique process goes far beyond simply modeling guitar and effects sounds. DigiTech works with the artist and, often, the producer, to capture all the qualities of the performance - including mic placement, room sound, front of house sound, and the elements of the engineer's "magic" that make so much of a difference in any recording. With Crossroads, you can put DigiTech's Production Modeling Technology and Clapton's legendary tones to work on your rig!

Seven legendary Clapton tones span from the 1960s to now
No matter when you first latched onto Eric Clapton, you're sure to find your favorite tones in the Crossroads pedal. Included are seven settings, each of which represents a landmark Clapton tone and era.

DigiTech Crossroads pedal tones:

"Badge" from Goodbye
Eric used a rotating Leslie organ speaker for the swirling guitar breaks between the verse and chorus. This sound was achieved by over-driving the amplifier within the Leslie and by strategically placing two microphones around the rotating speakers and panning their signals into a stereo field.

"Crossroads" from Wheels of Fire and Live at the Fillmore
A pivotal moment from Eric's career, "Crossroads" was penned by Robert Johnson, Eric's most important guitar influence. Its electrified delta blues form evolved from Eric's days with the Bluesbreakers.

"Sunshine of Your Love" from Disraeli Gears
Eric achieved his now infamous "woman tone" by running his amps as hot and loud as possible, rolling back the tone control on his SG and engaging his wah-wah to a fixed position.

"Layla" (Acoustic) from Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs
Eric's most recognized guitar riff and song feature him on "Brownie," his Fender® Strat® guitar, through a tweed Fender® Champ® amplifier.

"Lay Down Sally" from Slowhand
"Lay Down Sally" is a country style shuffle featuring Eric and George Terry in a counterpoint guitar duet.

"Layla" from Unplugged and LIVE
A pivotal moment in Eric's career was his live acoustic performance on the MTV television series "Unplugged". This setting transforms your electric guitar signal into Eric's vintage acoustic heard on this performance.

"Reptile" from Reptile
Eric's title track on his 2001 release "Reptile" features a classic Gibson L-5 jazz guitar played through his custom Cornell tweed combo. Some chorusing and reverb were added during mixdown.
