how is it?

is it a decent over drive pedal?


I wanna get some tightness to my tone. I know the TS9 is probably way better or something but I only have like 60 bucks to spend. I play like metalcore/hardcore stuff.

The Bad Monkey is bang for your bucks, no doubt on it. In Harmony Central some reviewer said that you don't need to go boutique to sound good and I agree 100% with it. It's a great Over Drive. Besides the independant controls for lows and highs are a big plus and allows total fredóm for tweaking. Also the Bad Monkey works great as a clean booster.

But, don't trust me and try it and see it yourself.

BTW, in signature I see you own a Bugera. Mind saying something about it? I found this amps and think they're really cool looking and more than affordable.

It is a great pedal and yes, it is even an ok clean booster. But it isn't very high gain so you might need a high gain amp along with it?

very gd OD pedal, can go quite loud though xD
Happy birthday Slash

Actually, I have a Bugera 6262 and I always front end it with my Bad Monkey to add a little tightness to it.

Love the Bad Monkey, it's a key part of my tone. I highly recommend it.

They're sweet looking and sound pretty good. I find it to be alot clearer than a 5150. I just played at my local music studio and they have 5150's and they're alright but I prefer my bugera. then again though, they dont take care of their amps, so im sure it'd sound better if it was taken care of. The cleans hands down though, are better than the 5150. that's something thats not even comparable.

Overall it's a good amp. will it last? i don't know time will tell. Hopefully it does, i dont want it to explode i really like it.

Bugera is having some nasty reliability issues these days. I personally would wait until they get those sorted out.

For example, electrolytic capacitors can die from old age after 25+ years... they should not go out on a brand new amp straight from the factory. It's obvious they are using the cheapest parts they can find, and I sure wouldn't put my money into them.

ok and like said before only about 3 to 4 people have had problems with theirs.

It hasn't been a high rate of mess ups. Mine has been just fine, and so have others.

Might wanna take into account the fact that only the people who have problems will come crying, while the people who have no issues will keep quiet

shit, that does not look good
I'm willing to believe that these are only temporary - any new company will come with scare stories...
I think the amps look promising (except for those pictures)
