Sound — 10
The pedal has a metal case and the sound range goes from warm rhythm tones to great lead guitar and blues tones. Especially for all SRV fans this pedal is a must because it doesen't have to hide behind the Ibanez Stomp Boxes. The sound of the Bad Monkey is warm and smooth with a fairly low-gain sound. This is not a distortion pedal, so those wanting a heavier hard rock-type of sound will be disappointed.
