Sound — 10
My setup is this, My Gibson SG is connected to my DigiTech Whammy, then from my Whammy to my DigiTech Grunge distortion, then from my distortion to my DigiTech Bad Monkey, then from the Bad Monkey to a Marshall amp. It`s not noisey on any settings really, no matter how high or low you put it. The effects are pretty good, they always sound great too. I can get sounds of my favorite artists like AC/DC, Led Zeppelin... and so on. If you run the distortion with the Overdrive, it kinda creates a blanket over the sound.
Overall Impression — 10
I play Classic rock like AC/DC & Led Zeppelin, as mentioned before, and Alternative rock like Rage Against The Machine. It`s a good match for more of the Classic rock catagory, AC/DC and stuff. I've been playing for 4 years. My other gear is my Gibson SG, DigiTech Whammy, DigiTech Grunge, and a Marshall amp. If it were stolen or lost I would get it again because it is a good pedal. I like the whole thing, and every feature is my favorite feature. Didn`t need to compare it to other products. I wish it had a bit more effects, but the effcets on it are just fine.
Reliability & Durability — 9
I could depend on it, but I would need some backup in a gig. But I could depend on it because it is made pretty good, it could take the beating, on the ware of turning it on & off. It is a very good pedal and the way it's designed is made for dependability.
Ease of Use — 9
The reason I payed $0.00 is because it was a free offer, that came with the purchase of my DigiTech Whammy. It`s very easy to get a good sound out of it, just turn the knobs on it, and set it on what you want. The manual for it just tells you the basics about it. The unit has never been upgraded. I really don`t know the firmware revision number; it has no editing patches.
