more toy than tool

By -ZiggY-of(SIN)theticDownSide

the other guitarist in my band let me use his pedals, this being one of them. I will admit, this thing is dead-on for scott ian's tone. however the only settings that impressed me was "3" on the modulation knob. I love the slight delay at the end of a note and the saturated tone. however, i was able to replicate it fine with my boss ML-2 by backing off on the bass, and increasing the highs and distortion, along with the highs and mids on my amp. personally I prefer more bass to beef up my tone, and the bass control on this pedal didn't seem very responsive. I also loved the setting for 'finale'. it has helped inspire a new intro for one of my new songs. Fun pedal to play around with, but doesn't impress me enough to use it live.

DigiTech Black13

By Ripps 4-29

from Dallas, TX

This pedal is ownage. I saw it at the local Guitar Center and I tried it out on a Dean Dime-O-Flame. The distortion was impressive, and after testing it's "crunchyness" I finally got down to playing the riff to Anthrax classics like Madhouse and I'm the Man. Surprisingly, I got bored with those tunes, so I played a Stormtroopers Of Death lick. Caution: This pedal is not suitable for softer styles that have absolutely no talent in them.

Amazing Pedal

By Dimefan21

from Undisclosed

The Scott Ian Black13 overdrive pedal is an amazing effect that captures 7 of his greatest tones. When I bought this pedal I was expecting a lot because it carries the name of a great guitar player, but it blew my mind. I immediately turned it to the "Madhouse" setting and I was amazed at how accurate the tone was. It was just like the record! I tought I was in anthrax when I used this pedal because it is sooooo accurate. The great tone for "Finale" makes for a great delay effect. And the progression of the note you played going up or down makes for endless possibities. If you are a fan of the band go out and buy this Pedal.

It's Scott Ian... what did you expect?

By DeathAngel666

from Cleveland, OH

As an old-school thrash metal fan, I was thrilled to see a pedal bearing his name. I bought it, took it home, plugged in my Jackson, and played the "Madhouse" riff. The hair stood up on the back of my neck. I went and checked the mirror to see if I was all of a sudden bald, sporting a footlong goatee. It sounded EXACTLY LIKE the recording. After an hour of playing "I Am The Law" and "Spreading The Disease," I was convinced that this was a great purchase. Then I started tweaking the settings to what I like, and was still very happy with the results. It's not made for jazz, gospel, R & B, or radio rock. But if you want heavy, thrashy distortion, and a sound that would make you fit in with the likes of Destruction, Sodom, Death, Slayer, and of course Anthrax, don't waste your time. Get this thing now.

The Digitech Scott Ian Black-13 is worthy of Scott's name. It really packs a punch. Its great for writing heavy riffs with my Les Paul. I am a big fan of Scott Ian's guitar playing and now you can come alot closer to sounding like him. This pedal is worth every cent of its good price!

Even Works With Bass!

By madavis2

from Memphis, TN

I am a bassist and I belive that this pedal is better than any bass distortion pedal sold today! My guitarist loves it for his guitar, I love it for my bass. I think anyone who plays metal who wants to add a heavier sound must buy this pedal. I have gone through numerous bass effects pedals and none of them can produce the raw power of this bad boy! This is a must have for all heavy guitar and bass players.
