Sound — 7
The sound is amazing, I'm running Gibson Epiphone to a Stage Tg-10 amp it's small with little distortion and turns it all the way up. I play music like Atreyu, Bullet For My Valentine, Slayer, and many more, the pedal reaches the distortion level needed to play the sharp solos of Atreyu and Anthrax and the rhythm of bfmv the effect all around is good.
Overall Impression — 9
This pedal is good for metal and death metal (obviously) it's very good for people looking to play in the basement. I've been playiing for over four years with a Fender Squire Bullet and a Gibson Epiphone and a Quest Bass with a TG-10 stage amp and and a Traynor bass amp. I really should asked the guy what the life of the switch. If the pedal gets stolen or broken get a new pedal with a longer lifespan. I'm getting a better pedal as soon as possible and will give a new review. I love the sound and distortion it gives to weak amps, I hate the wearing of the switch, my favorite feature is the names under the turning knobs. I wish it had a better more durable switch.
Reliability & Durability — 5
You can't depend on this item lasting your whole music career or practice time, the switch would fail on you. I would not prefer it to be use in a gig with out a backup, sometimes the pedal will take a while to start up or not start up at all if the battery life is low change them or it wont work. The switch wears out and breaks easily so don't put to much reliabilty into the little box.
Ease of Use — 8
The sound of the DOD deathmetal distortion pedal is easy to use but the Switch after a while of use will stop working cause complication to occur. The all around use is good if you have little money the DOD Death Metal will help you if you have an amp that is low on distorion.
