I played this Denelectro Medal pedal at a local shop, and it sounds amazing. It's definitely not sawtooth- sounding, and it has alot of bass while retaining the crispness of the guitar. I would definetly buy this pedal again if i broke it or lost it. It comes in handy all the time.

Ok Pedal

It took awhile to find a setting i liked, but once I did, it sounded great. I only suggest getting this pedal if you can't afford higher end pedals.

O YEA

By Dan

from Grapevine, TX

Comments about Danelectro DJ-21 Black Coffee Metal Distortion Pedal:

This just arrived at my door 15 minutes ago. I plugged it in and without even dialing the knobs was blown away by it. It had such a raw powerful sound that it made the high gain channel on my amp sound like little girl stuff. The whole reason I bought this one over the other ones was because one review said this sounded like what you expected an electric guitar to sound like, and boy that person was right. The only drawback is that the button is really small, a little bigger than a quarter, so you have to aim carefully when you turn it on. Other than that, it easily equals the BOSS pedals

Very flexable pedal for heavy rock,punk or metal.

By Skidney

from St Louis

Comments about Danelectro DJ-21 Black Coffee Metal Distortion Pedal:

When I look at distortion pedals flexablity is my number 1 concern. This is an amazingly flexable pedal that can go from 1 to 11. If you want a bit of coloring all the way to crust core it can do it all while allowing the sound of the guitar to come through not just a chunk of distortion.

This truly is a screamer!

By Leland

from Oklahoma

Comments about Danelectro DJ-21 Black Coffee Metal Distortion Pedal:

This is the hottest distortion box that I have ever used. I use it with a Peavey T-60 with two humbuckers. I tried it with an OLP Bass and blew up a crate bass amp speaker. I definately do not reccommend it for bass, but for a guitar by all means get one.

coffee for your metal!

By James

from North Dakota

Comments about Danelectro DJ-21 Black Coffee Metal Distortion Pedal:

great pedal for the price. it's a tad heavier for hard rock songs but perfect for heavy/death metal songs. this pedal gives you the sound you imagined a guitar would sound like when you first picked one up.

Buy it if you have a humbucker

By Glen Cunnington

from Milton-Freewater, Oregon

Comments about Danelectro DJ-21 Black Coffee Metal Distortion Pedal:

I got this pedal and the tone is great ut the only problem is that it was really fuzzy. Thats because I had a single coil. Then i tried it with a humbucker pickup and it sounded great so id recommnd it to a friend.

Decent little thing

By Brady

from Madison, Wisconsin

Comments about Danelectro DJ-21 Black Coffee Metal Distortion Pedal:

If you're looking for a small, cheap little distortion pedal: this is it. It can give you a decent crunch with the right settings (or some interesting ones if you play with it), but it's nothing truly special. It also doesn't seem to do much to high-pitch noises. I'd personally recommend a pedal with more strength if you have the money to spend, but this thing is decent.

Nice little pedal

By CS

from Milton, FL

Comments about Danelectro DJ-21 Black Coffee Metal Distortion Pedal:

MUCH better than the Fab series. Very versatile little pedal. Would definitely get another one. I thought that the "metal" in the name might make this a bit more than I was looking for, but it is very versatile and gave me what I was looking for.

Black Coffee Distortion

By Pierce B.

from Fredonia, NY

Comments about Danelectro DJ-21 Black Coffee Metal Distortion Pedal:

When I first received this pedal in the mail, it didn't work at all. After I sodered the input wires it worked just fine. As for the tone, this pedal has a nice, clean, crisp Randy Rhoads type sound. The tone is not as beefy as some other more high quality pedals available, but if you are looking for clean, crispy tone then this pedal is just fine. It is much better then amp built in distortion. I would rate this pedal a 4.

Noisy

By Selene

from Washington

Comments about Danelectro DJ-21 Black Coffee Metal Distortion Pedal:

This was the first pedal I got when I bought my initial rig. It has a lot of hiss and can be very harsh. I couldn't handle it. If you are broke and need a pedal, this one is okay. If you're wanting something you're going to use long term, save your pennies and get a MT-2, mod it or get it modded (DIY or a Keeley Mod), and be happy.
