DigiTech DBM Bad Monkey Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal

Sound Quality

I use this in front of my AC30. I'd have walked right past it in the store if I hadn't been given advise to try it with my amp. I swear, this is the best pedal you will ever get for ~$50. It is a transparent, evenly voiced overdrive that just sounds great. It can be used as a boost, or to add a little sizzle, or it can get quite heavy. It all sounds good. I personally keep all knobs at 12:00.


Looks solid. All these big companies make long lasting pedals.

General Comments

I've been playing for 6 years. I own a Gibson SG ('61 RI) and a Fender Telecaster (Highway 1 Texas)


I'd recommend that anyone give this pedal a try. I was having trouble getting my tubescreamer to sound good through my amp. I found the TS to be too middy (expecially with my middy amp), while this pedal gives an evenly voiced overdrive. Great effect for cheap!


10 here, because you cannot beat this value.
