DigiTech: Hot Head Distortion

Sound — 10
I use a Fender Standard Stratocaster, (made in Mexico) and a (not-so-good, crappy) Squier Champ 15G amplifier. The amplifier didn't have great gain and I wanted distortion to play AC/DC and Metallica type music. The pedal worked great with my styles of music and my crappy amplifier. The effects always sound great to me. This pedal has a good range from light to heavy distortion. If you play really heavy metal, this pedal probably isn't for you. The pedal is also great for solos.

Overall Impression — 8
I have heard bad reviews from this pedal in the past but I think it works great especially for it's price. This pedal is a good match for people who play classic rock, and metal. I have been playing for about 15 months and this was my first pedal so I don't know how it compares to other pedals. If this were stolen or something, I would probably try others, if there were no better, I would get this one again. Overall, I'm pleased.
