DigiTech DBM Bad Monkey Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal

Sound Quality

I use a Fender and Les Paul Standard guitar, along with a Fender Blues Junior and a Marshall JCM 900. The Bad Monkey seems to work well regardless of the combination. The two tone knobs (low and high) help shape the sound very well. The distortion sounds great at 1 to 2, very weak beyond that. Basically, I'm using this pedal as more of a "volume" boost. It gives me a little edge for my lead playing. You'll like this pedal as long as you're not looking for great distortion tones.


Digitech has built the Bad Monkey like a tank. It's definitely tough and reliable.

General Comments

This is a very good pedal. People looking for a little boost will love it. Those expecting a distortion pedal will rate it poorly. This pedal isn't versatile but it excels at what it's suppose to do. I'd replace this pedal immediately because it's perfect for my style of music.
