DigiTech DBM Bad Monkey Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal

Sound Quality

Very organic, beautiful tube sound. Not a lot of distortion, it's more mellow. Check out what I did yesterday: Took my Richter guitar -- an EX335 clone with P-90s. Put on the neck pickup and turned the volume full up and tone all the way down (think Clapton's "woman tone"). Plugged into the Bad Monkey, with treble at 0, bass at Max, Level at 3 o'clock, and Gain at Max. Plugged that into a "Blue Moaner" (that's a Dallas Rangemaster clone, made by Blue Bayou F/X, great handmade pedal, check Ebay) on Max. Plugged that into my friend's Fender Twin. I'm not even sure what channel the amp was on -- clean / distortion / both. Those amps are fucking confusing. Anyway, moral of the story --- the most monstrous, godlike rocking tone I have ever played through! I can't wait to plug it into my Peavey Delta Blues and see how that sounds.


A tank.
