OVERVIEW

The DigiTech Death Metal Distortion Pedal gives you the most extreme distortion you will ever hear. Simply put, the gain is turned up to eleven and then the knob is ripped off. Level, Low, Mid, and High tone controls provide flexible tone shaping so even though the distortion is over the top, your guitar is guaranteed to slice through. Low, Mid, and High tone controls give you the flexibility to boost or cut the bass, middle, and treble frequencies and the Level knob boosts the output level of your signal. An Amp output goes to your amplifier and the dedicated Mixer output has a cabinet emulation circuit that lets you run direct into a mixer or recorder when you don't want to lug your amp along.

The outer reaches of distortion-dom.

I got this pedal recently because I was looking for a nice little distortion for my setup that would fit my budget. Here is my review:Features:This pedal has alot of tonal ability, its not sterile or plastic sounding. Its got a very nice distortion tone, even with solid state amps. It has a 3 band EQ, Low for your bass, Mid for, well mids, and High for your treble(bite). It has a level knob that controls more of volume then Gain, which is kind of a flaw. This pedal has no gain control knob(which actually can be installed with a little Soldering and a 100K pot, but shouldn't have to be). Overall a 4.5/5 for features.Quality: This box is amazing looking and very durable! It has a beautiful painting, and it is built like a tank! Dont worry about buying a cheap box that will break easy, cuz this one sure will hold together! Sound quality is also great as well. 5/5 for quality.Value: No distortion is better for the price. If your looking for a great metal distortion for cheap, this is the way to go. It has little feedback(for me anyway) and sounds incredible! And its construction is amazing so for the price, you can't go wrong. 5/5 for value.Overall: a 4.5/5 because this pedal should have been equip with a gain knob. But still sounds amazing!GET IT!

one trick pony

it's built like a tank. that's good. it has tons of drive. that's good . . . if you need TONS of drive. if you need a little less drive. . sorry....Read complete review

it's built like a tank. that's good. it has tons of drive. that's good . . . if you need TONS of drive. if you need a little less drive. . sorry. there's no knob for that. if you DO need tons of drive, this one does have a beautiful sounding drive.

it's a NOISY pedal. even with my EMG's which are dead silent on almost everything, this pedal amplifies everything. if you don't deaden a string when you should, the world will know it. it's also very treble-ey. you can (thankfully) turn down the treble, but for the scooped guys who want 10-0-10, this will end up being 10-0-5.

I will probably swap this out for something . . .adjustable.
I gave this a three for features because there really aren't any. you can adjsut the volume, bass, mid and treble. there is no adjustment for drive, so this thing is either "balls to the wall" or "off".
built like a tonka toy. like they say, the problem with indestructable toys, is they are good for breaking other toys. if I glued my guitar cable into this, I could use it to kill a viking.
as I said, it's a one trick pony. if you need loud, noisy, heavy treble biased distortion, this is for you ! otherwise, sorry charlie, that's all you get.

          I bought this - on a whim - because it was the stupid deal of the day. It kicks butt! You know by the title what you are getting - you won't be playing SRV on this thing ha ha...but you can get a heavy tone and screaming harmonics. It does what it says it should do...and I love it!

            So, I don't play heavy metal normally, but when I do, this is the piece I pull out. I like the fact you only get to dial in tone and level...having a dedicated distortion tone is the way to go, that's why I own so many...I find "the" tone out of one, and never adjust it again. This takes all the guess work out of it...highly recommend for amatuers and novices alike.

            Bought this on a whim as the SDOTD, planned on trying it out with my bass. Definitely too much distortion for that, but works well for my guitar for extreme amount of distortion. It keeps good tone, but don't expect to be able to adjust the distortion level much.

              Came in as expected, good quality for a very discounted price. Did not make my fat fingering a thing of the past but sure did make it sound better. good tone, and all you can expect from a metal pedal.

              I ran my Epi Les Paul Custom Pro with stock Pro buckers through this. There was lots of gain and perhaps too much, but enough sustain to carry you over into next week. it might be too noisy for recording. You can turn the level down but not much adjustment on the overdrive. Its a limited peddle but for a 'stupid deal of the day", I guess I''l keep it. I recommend it but only for extreme distortion. this ain't no Blues/rock kind of pedal.
