DigiTech DBM Bad Monkey Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal

Sound Quality

I have compared it to Analogmans silver mod and a stock TS-7 Tube screamer. The latter two are a lot and a little better, respectively. The two Tube Screamers sound much more REAL than the monkey, but the price is also much cheaper. I can get the Monkey to sound almost like the TS-7 by playing with the tone knobs.


Reliability should be about the same as the TS-7, mediocre. Cheap materials compared to the Analogman.

General Comments

The pedal weights a ton compared to the TS-7 but is cheaper. It uses up batteries faster than the TS-7, and sounds almost as good. I use the pedals at the some time so I can get different levels of scream without having to fidddle with the knobs in between songs.


Good value for the price.
