DigiTech DBM Bad Monkey Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal

Sound Quality

I'm using this through a halfways decent rig - '83 American Strat/Frankencaster/335 Knockoff into the Bad Monkey then a BOSS SD-1, BOSS ME-30 and into the amp. It blows the doors off of the SD-1 - it can get the same sound, but it can also do so much more!! Grunting, panting, screaming - it does it all thanks to the very active EQ controls. I don't have that much stompbox experience, but have a reasonable understanding of tone (I've owned lots of cheapy pedals, one of the original Marshall Guv'nors, SS amps, tube amps and the SD-1). This pedal pushed into a tube amp is killer. It's well worth the $$.


So far so good.

General Comments

I play bluesy rock and have been doing so for about 15 years and have accumulated some pretty decent gear. This is easily on par with that, and deserves it's spot in the lineup.


I love BOSS stuff, but this is definitely better - get one for yourself.
