Roland GR-D V-Guitar Distortion Twin Pedal Stompbox at a Glance:
Distortions with unheard of clarity and definition
You'll be able to finally get the well-defined distortion sounds you want with the Roland GR-D V-Guitar Distortion stompbox. Your Roland GK-equipped guitar sends each string as its own signal via the 13-pin jack. Each string is then processed individually, not as a whole, applying separate distortions. This kills atonal harmonic artifacts that can muddy up your tone. You get exceptionally clear and defined tones for each string, even when you're playing complex chords with tons of gain. Let the Roland GR-D take your distortion tones to a whole new place.
Sculpt your perfect distortion tone
From classic overdrives to new and fresh distortion sounds, the Roland GR-D V-Guitar Distortion pedal offers killer sounds. Since the GR-D processes each string separately, you get big, amazingly defined tones. Even with high-gain distortions your tone is sharp and edgy while keeping smoothness. You won't lose subtle nuances because it responds to the picking of each string. The VG-DIST 2 setting mixes wave synth tones with distortions for bold, new sounds. In this mode, that gain changes both the synth and distortion gain. The GR-D's Solo pedal boosts level and midrange so your solos can cut through the mix. Roland's Poly Distortion setting is perfect for chords, it processes each string separately for the ultimate in defined guitar tones. The Synth setting gives you analog synth-type tones. It's based off of your strings' vibrations, not a triggered oscillator, so it's latency free and responds to every subtle picking nuance of your guitar. The Solo pedal offers an octave up function when in Synth mode. You can blend any of the Roland GR-D V-Guitar Distortion pedal sounds with your guitar's original guitar tone.
Use this revolutionary pedal with any rig
A versatile I/O configuration lets you add the Roland GR-D V-Guitar Distortion into your regular rig. Use it with pedalboards, multi-effects processors, racks, mixers, guitar amps, or other V-Guitar processors. The stereo mix/guitar input allows you to connect devices and blend them with the sound of your GR-D. Connect your normal, non-processed guitar sound, to your rig via the guitar output. The Roland GR-D V-Guitar Distortion twin pedal stompbox is ready to be put anywhere in your rig.

by Edward Thomas from Hollywood, CaI was disappointed with this pedal so far! I was hoping that it would be great for distorted chords but nothing sounds natrual. I thought the lead would be better but it's almost unusable. I'll give... read more [+] it another try, but so far not good. Also if you a good synth sound you'll be better off with the Pitronix Mothership. close [-]
