Bad Monkey Overdrive Demo

Here's a gear demo of a Digitech Bad Monkey overdrive guitar pedal. I've had this one for about 2 years I think and its just been bumped off my pedal board to make room for a few other overdrives so I figured that I would put it to good use and demo it for anyone looking for an incredible overdrive pedal on a budget price. I've had one guitarist tell me he thought it was a better pedal than a modded keeley ts9. I don't actually agree with that, but I do believe this is the best overdrive you can get for the price. I got it for $40 but I think the price has been bumped up to $50 now? Not sure exactly. It is still well worth that money.

I did a couple different settings and hopefully you can tell which knobs I changed. I used a modified fender squier strat with fender lace sensors and a seymour duncan hot rails pickup. I mainly used the neck lace sensor (blue) and the hot rails to give the difference between single coils and humbuckers. I really can't say enough good about this pedal.

Enjoy and let me know what you think about it!

I love my Monkey, my only problem that it have too much mid range for chords. It could be a problem of my setup.

too much mids for chords? mids are like the best thing for chords.

First of all, I enjoy deathcore for it's complexity and it's the only genre heavy enough for me

I want an amp good for playing hippie tunes. I want it to be an actual amp, not a tube amp.

Great job!

It was nice how you should it with gain up and off! This should help a lot of guys see what happens when you use it for boost or increased gain.
If you start a reply with: I have never played one but I have heard good things about it! Your opinion is invalid.

I agree with you to an extent, i dont like the metal V shape EQ, but in my setup it is sounds a bit untight or muddy.

yeah, when I was using it regularly, I'd dial down the "high" knob a little bit to soften it up for chords.
