Im looking at a Digitech Death Metal Effects Pedal on ebay, and i need some help. when you use an effects pedal, do you put one amp lead from the guitar into the pedal, then another from the pedal to the amp? also, has anyone got one of these and is it any good?

yeah.

the stompbox should have 2 inputs - the output and the input. you have to plug your guitar into the input slot and then connect your amp to the output.

get a Digitech DF7.. then you get 7 distortion pedals in one

I love mine. Plus it does cab emulation, so you can plug it straight into your pc for recording. Or straight into speakers (if your out somewhere and no amp is available.)

Or the best use yet, you buy a standard in-car kit for like £5.. then plug it in. Then your mates who are sitting in the back of the car can play guitar It's quite fun. lol.
#9
I second that. The DF-7 owns, it's Boss MT-2 simulation sounds better than the real thing! I love mine. But you really need a power adapter for the DF-7 (A generic 9v one works) cause it goes through batteries almost hourly.
#12
i havent, but does anyone know if the boss MD-2 is any good?

^The Dime isn't, in my opinion. I played it at the Messe at the Dunlop stand, and even there it didn't sound good.
#15
i got this pedal, i actually like it, it is a bit over the top for rythem (especially for what your playing) but for death/black its pretty mint, and the main reason i use it is for solo's. this thing is awesome for solo's. it sustains really well. if you want a good arch enemy/in flames tone for cheap, this is a good start

The MD-2 is AWFUL!! it sounds so thin and tinny!! Even the Digi Death Metal is better than it.

Buy a DF7 Then you get... 1) Ibanez tubescreamer 2) DOD Power amp 3) BOSS DS-1 4) Proco Rat 5) Digitech Metal Master 6) Boss Metalzone 7) Big Muff
#17
general rule when buying a guitar pedal is to NEVER EVER buy a pedal with "metal" in the name unless its modded.

get a proco rat or a eh big muff pi and ull be all set
#18
Yea the proco rat is cool. The big muff is great for grunge.. but doesn't suit some styles..

Or, on the other hand.. get a DF7 then you get most of them listed above. lol... ok i'll stop repeating myself! but that's just my opinion.

Edit: has anyone used the Digitech EX-7 Expression Factory. It is a wah pedal and has the DF-7 Distortion Factory in it too.
