Oh I love Digitech stuff, partly because some of it is (I have to say), actually quite good! It also has the effect of polarizing some people who insist on boutique gear and can’t believe that a $50 pedal will produce an effect that’s really, really good or at worst good enough.
This is my second review of a Digitech overdrive, so if your in the market for a new overdrive pedal, make sure you also read my review of the Digitech Bad Monkey that I wrote a while back.
Okay, so the pedal itself is a nicely colored cool blue, with minimal graphics and the same controls as the Bad Monkey…
- and the essential Gain.
The 9volt power input is at the top of the pedal, which I think should be standard with all pedals…, along with the standard left to right input output configuration.
Similarly it has an extra output (Output 2) so you can go straight into a mixing desk and use this pedal sans amp (no amp) ala Tech 21 Character pedals.
So it comes with all the features you could need and to top it off it’s built like a tank, seriously tuff steel case that you just won’t break!
