DigiTech DBM Bad Monkey Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal

Sound Quality

Did not give a very pleasant warm tone. Th treble knob added a harsh high end and I didn't like the frequencies it modified. Same with the bass knob. I ab'd this with my Ibanez ts-9 and ts-9DX and there is no comparison. The tube screamers are ALOT Fatter and warmer sounding than this pedal. More "meat" in the tone and not so brittle and fake sounding. Did not boost my amp as well either. In fact it thinned out the tone as opposed to beefing it up like the tube screamers did. This is a wannabee pedal that just doesn't cut it.


Seems very solid and well built

General Comments

I play all types of rock, blues and metal. Peavey 5150 amps. ADA mp-1, JSX amps and OLD Marshalls. 27 years of playing have given me a superb and keen ear for tone. I didn't like this pedal at all. It's sound quality is second rate to ibanez. The Ts-9 kicks it's ass and the BBE green screamer does too. For $40.00 I guess it's ok but your tone does suffer for it. Stick with the real thing. There is a reason they are the best.
