I have played alot of preamp effects pedals and proccessors and I have to say this thing is good for the price. It took me a little while to dial in a tone that I liked but once I did I love it. One thing I found like on most of these types of units is the noise gate is not really that good but I was able to fix that With my Boss noise gate pedal. Construction is plastic but seems well built. The switches to switch channels are very good and seem built to last a good while. I have had mine now for a good 4 months and have had no issues. If your in a bind cash wise and need something thats not going to break your wallet then I would highly suggest this unit. Im actually thinking of getting another one for back up. I play extreme Brutal Death Metal and this unit has plenty of gain to it. You can really shape your sound with this unit and get a very good distortion tone from it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Remember, I have been playing for over 30 years and I am very picky about my distortion and im very impressed by this unit. I just use this pedal going into the clean channel of my head and into my 4x12 cab with my noise gate and thats it. Very Happy with this product!

I own a Delta Lab DGFX1 multi-effects pedal. I've used it to gig several times, with show-stopping difficulty, to record demos with and practice. I like the unit, but it has problems which a purchaser should know about firsthand. It's noisy when selecting overdrive or distortion, and the noise gate cuts out too much treble and midrange for my taste when used on keyboards, leaving a dull, muddy sound that has to be eq'ed brighter. the compressor works, but it's a single, harsh overkill setting with horrible tone for any application. the unit won't run on batteries- BIG fail!- and it not only lacks a stereo or dual input, but it only outputs in stereo- another big problem! I generally like the reverbs and delays, as well as the chorus and phase shiter, while i only like one of the wah sounds. Its memory falters with bad power, and it's inconvenient to have to reset every parameter and mode when this happens. I use decent line conditioning, and this problem nearly cost my band a steady engagement when my settings glitched into horrible-freak effects. If Delta Labs corrects these problems with a new, deluxe model, I'd consider buying one after checking out the pricey competition. if you can live with its faults, great. you'll probably want to save up and buy a better, pricier pedal!

Comments about DeltaLab DGFX1 Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

As I said, I love the Deltalab line of products. Just because a pedal, amp, guitar or any other piece of equipment is more expensive, does not mean it is better. I tried the BOSS line and was rather disappointed. I want to say that it always comes down to PERSONAL PREFERENCE. The Blues tones I get out of this multi-effect are quite smooth. The metal distortion has an awesome mix of gain and clarity. The modulation effects are what I want as well. If I had to give a recommendation, I would recommend to try everything you can get your hands on in order to find the sounds that fit you.
The effects and sounds are great
The casing is plastic, but I always treat my gear well, and I have the 2 year warranty plan, so I am not too concerned.
The sounds and a very good drum machine make it a great value for any level player of any budget. One gets rather tired of hearing that more expensive gear is always better.

Good Sounds.... Did not hold up.

By Loyal2Him

from Georgia

Comments about DeltaLab DGFX1 Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

Let me start by saying that I could have just gotten a bad one. The sounds were great and I really liked the amp modeling. Mine quit within a day or two and would just stop whenever I used the expression pedal. On the good side, Musician's Friend was great about it and let me return it with no hassles. I am going to get something else. The quality just did not seem to be enough for a gigging musician. The price was great and gave a lot of options for what you paid. Delta Labs has been around for a while and I really think this might have just been a bad unit.

Great for beginners, excellant catalogue of sounds

By James Healey

from PA

See all my reviews

Comments about DeltaLab DGFX1 Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

Highly reccomended. Even pros could find a use for this box. For beginners it is an exceptional tool for learning fx, and sparking creative urges.
For the price the number of possible sounds available here is phenomenal.For experienced musicians this could still be very handy for informal secessions, recording and as part of a travel kit.For live performance it might take time to master. If you are a weekend warrior or a professional the quality of tones may not be adequate. I could see using this live for a few select quality fx. I like the Jazz chorus, some delay sounds and some distortion options.The volume varies wildly from one effect to the next at times. Use cautiously, read the manual and be very careful using this thing with head phones.
Better than expected for the price. Looks solid but I have only had it a month, time will tell how durable it is.This is one of first effects boxes I have owned in 20 years, I have played mostly acoustic guitar or bass over the years. Electric is still a hobby for me. For bass this is ok but there is a seperate bass unit I might try in the future.
Best value I could find cosidering the # of sounds.

    Comments about DeltaLab DGFX1 Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

    First off, people like what they like. A professional musician can make anything sound great. I purchased this unit a few days ago, and I couldn't be happier. Yes, I could've bought a more expensive unit, but I couldn't justify the cost. In my humble opinion, the dgfx1 is a quality unit for any price. I was in the market for an inexpensive reverb pedal and came across this, and on clearance to boot. It has everything. I'm not a metal-head, so I don't use the metal settings. I can get great SRV tones, as well as David Gilmour and Robert Cray. I can get wonderful tones on a budget. I would easily recommend this unit to anyone. I'm sorry for the choppy sentences, but I'm typing on my phone, and it's rather difficult.

    Get this pedal!

    By Delta Lab Lover

    from California

    Comments about DeltaLab DGFX1 Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

    I own digitech, boss, and line 6. After purchasing this delta lab, the others are being retired to my home studio. This pedal is unbelievable! I forgot how much a great tone can inspire your performance. As guitarists, we're always looking for that magic "tone". Well, look no further. The presets on this thing are ready to rock. At first I was skeptical about only having up and down patch selection abilities instead of the typical 4 patches per bank as some others provide, but after figuring out a good system, I prefer this feature simply because I don't have to hit two buttons to change banks. I simply line up my patches as follows: I assign a lead tone to the left of a clean tone, and assign a dirt tone to the right of the clean tone. I repeat this formula over and over again. That way, say I'm playing a clean rhythm tone while singing the song, and the solo comes up, I simply click the left button for a rippin' solo. Or say I'm playing a dirty tone while singing, I simply click the right button to get to a rippin' tone for a solo. When your'e performing live, it's crucial to hit the desired patch you need when needed. By using this method, I don't even really need to look at the thing, just simply click left or right. My eyes aren't what they used to be so this works great. This thing is so easy to program, although the manual isn't the most informative. Just play with it for a while and you'll be navigating in no time. I grabbed it on the stupid deal of the day, actually bought 2 and glad I did. My search for tone has ended! Do yourself a favor and get your hands on one of these.

    BEST IN IT'S PRICE CATEGORY

    Ask me a question

    Comments about DeltaLab DGFX1 Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

    First I would like to say that nothing beats individula pedals. I have 17 of them for my studio, and I'm not going to give them up. That being said, I was getting tired of hooking up pedals for songs that didn't require the best equipment. Having tried several other multi-effects pedals by Boss & Digitech, in my view this Delta Lab pedal beats the ones I've tried. The Boss ME-20 was twice the price of this one, but didn't have the ability to do what this one does. It has the best factory presets I have ever seen, and it is not difficul to learn. Again, it is now going to take the place of my Boss Metal Core or Delay, but it is good enough to use when you are in a hurry and don't have the time or need for individual stomp boxes. I'm not sure of the construction, but it seems pretty solid. It also has pre-set programs I've never heard before on any othe multi effects pedal. Well worth your money. Oh yes, I don't care for the drums on this one, but maybe I'm not using them correctly

    Not a good buy

    By Emily Huber

    from Cincinnatti, OH

    Comments about DeltaLab DGFX1 Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

    This product lacks ease of use and overall quality. It takes much to long to change from a heavy distortion to a clean chorus. If you are intending to play a gig with this, it would be a huge mistake. I sent mine back after a couple days because I couldn't stand the sound of it. I then just bought individual pedals for the things I needed, and I have fallen in love with each one. It is a much more expensive route to take but it is worth it in the long run. It is much easier to look at the individual pedals indicator lights to see what's on. On the delta labs little screen, I have no idea what effects I'm running. Buy individual pedals!

    Great small pedal

    By TwangPatrol68

    from Portland, Oregon

    See all my reviews

    Comments about DeltaLab DGFX1 Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

    I made the switch from a Pod 2.0 with floorboard recently, choosing the DeltaLab for a space-saving and more versatile option. The entire unit fits in my gig-bag. The unit itself is quiet (features true bypass) and the global volume has a lot of headroom: it features increments of 1-100... I dial mine down to 20+/- for unity gain through a Vibrolux, for example. You will have to spend some time dialing in fx and levels, but once you do the unit is quite reliable. I have an Eleven rack for my main recording and large gigs, but the DeltaLab has served me very well on smaller gigs or jam sessions. The secret for higher gain sounds with this unit is to set up your clean tone on your amp first, check your levels, then start programming in levels and gain control. Try a variety of amps and stomp boxes, and dial back the gain so you don't wash out the sounds. This unit will give you what you want, but you have to learn your way around its quirks first. Definitely read the manual. A fine product overall.

    Excellent bang for the buck!

    By DarkEagleRising

    Comments about DeltaLab DGFX1 Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

    I've used just about every multi-effect pedal on the market over the last 10 years and this one rules! For the money you can't go wrong. It sounds great! It's durable & easy to use. And it has some cool, useable presets. You're always better off building your own patches but most pedals presets are useless glop. These can be easily dialed in to be actually useful & fun. I was skeptical at first but bought it on a whim and I'm extremely glad I did! Highly recommended.

    surprisingly easy to use

    By Louie Louie in P.V.

    from Mexico

    See all my reviews

    Comments about DeltaLab DGFX1 Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

    Just bought one of these puppies to replace my old zoom pedal. I must say that it was extremely easy to understand and begin programming. I was creating patches in no time and had some great sounds pouring outta this baby. I am an older guy and not very technically savvy, so this says alot. I bought this because I finally killed my zoom (also a great pedal) after 3 yrs of heavy play. I was programming more with the easy to use interface of the DiltaLab within 20 mins. than I ever did in 3 yrs with the zoom. I play about 2 nights a weeks in a couple of bars and I just show up with my guitars and plug straight into the P.A. I have a Marshall half-stack, but don't like lugging it around to small gigs like that. This pedal will allow me to continue showing up with my guitar and just plug and play. The acoustic simulator is astounding on this pedal and shocked my son who only plays classical guitar. It is not the best thing since sliced bread, but for the money it is a very good bargain. I will say this, it IS a good thing that the unit is so easy to use because the manual is not very informative. All in all it is a lot of fun to use, easy to tweak and has a corny built-in drum machine that helps keep you on beat if you don't have a drummer to practice with regularly. I will be buying one more for my son. He has decided to play some gigs with me because he digs the pedal so much. I would recommend this unit to a friend.

      This is a wonderful pierce of equipment for any starting, or low budget guitarist. There are many adjustable presets on the knobs. There is also the assistance of a built in tuner. It is made of cheap plastic however, and at high volumes the headphone output is very low quality (it is unknown to me whether or not this changes with higher quality headphones). Overall a good purchase

      I have had a DGFX1 for over 2 years now. Shortly after the 1 year warranty expired the display developed a bad distortion (This unit was never mis-handled in anyway). It is nearly impossible to tell which setting I'm on. The cost to repair exceeds the cost of a new one so it'll just sit on the shelf until I decide I need another one, then I'll probably buy one of the pricier ones. I hope Deltalab improves the noise gate function as well. Very nice price and a good idea, just not technically and structurally sound.

        Oh man where to start. My band is called Collision Chorus. Myspace it. This pedal thank you deltalab people! I love my tone on it. I don't like the DeltaLab Support service, and honestly tap tempo would make this pedal SOOOOOO much better. Delays okay not the best. But Other then that I love this baby and I plan on keeping it for a while.

I am still figuring everything out, but I have found some incredible sounds. And tweek them just a little for your specs with the turn of a knob. Couldn't be happier. I swapped froma a complete line 6 setup. A great buy at a great price. You will not be disappointed.

        It May Be The Best

        By Ortafunk

        from Ramona OK

        Comments about DeltaLab DGFX1 Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

        It Is a little too soon for Me to make a conclusion yet because I have Not messed with It enough. I have a Digitech GSP 2101 that just recently quit working right, I also have a Digitech GNX3000 which I did Not think was enough for the money & Its power supply went out It requires a massive power supply. I wanted to try something else something cheap knowing that good quality does Not always mean high price also until I could get enough separate effect boxes to do everything I wanted to do, But I Am beginning to think This DeltaLab DGFX1 will do It all. It Is the easiest and fastest Guitar processor to program just turn the left dial to the effect You want then push down on the right dial and turn the right dial to set the level then press the store button give It a Name then press the store button again Its that Easy, At first I thought this Is No good Not being able to set the level of the effect until I found It pushing down on the right dial. The Sound that I can Not tell You much about yet It seems to Me the Digitech GNX3000 had a better Acoustic simulator but for now that's Not a fact. The Over drive I just bought a Danelectro Fab D-1 which Sounds just like some of the more expensive Over drive distortion effect which Is a muddy Sound but one of The DGFX1 Amp setting has more of a present glassy Sound of a Tube pre-amplifier but I use a ART Tube powered pre-amplifier In front along with a Danelectro Fab flanger and It Sounds very good. Then there Is the delay and reverb and got a canyon type echo It has so much delay I kept setting It back. I did Not mess with the Wah much maybe It needs some adjustment but did Not Sound very good but I recommend a separate Wah pedal anyway so You do Not wear the pedal out too soon. It has a plastic case Not metal but I do Not think It will break unless You jump on It. I was going to get all separate effect pedals but Now I Am thinking twice & save the money which I need for emergencies to say the least, I know Musicians want separate effect pedals because If something goes wrong Its cheap just to unplug a box and put In a new one but at this price You can afford a back up Guitar processor.
