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 Digitech Death metal distortion is a decent distortion stompbox for early players still searching for their sound. The only real complaint I have is that the tone that is produced by this box sounds roughly like 3 distortions going at once through an amp that is in a giant tin box. The 3 tone controls and 1 level knobs do little to alter the overall tone. Overall a good pedal if you like an untamed sound, but for a tighter sound I'd stick with an amp's distortion capped with some overdrive for leads. The construction is great and road-worthy, but the tone leaves one wanting more.

    Comments about Digitech DDM Death Metal Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

    This pedal is ok, it's a very saturated tone. The distortion is a very high distortion sound, there's not a lot of lows. I wouldn't suggest it for anyone playing hard rock/metal sound. I would suggest it more to those people who do Solos a lot and are looking more for that metal core sound.

    Amazing versitile distortion

    By Michael Cottrell

    from Louisville, KY

    Comments about Digitech DDM Death Metal Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I've had 100's of distortion pedals and so far, this one I the best. It delivers any distortion anywhere from 70's classic rock to hells death metal depending on what you set it at. I don't think I'm going to need any more distortion pedals because this one is so versatile. It makes the best pinch harmonics and squeels I've ever heard with no effort. Although I would recommend you get the adaptor instead of battery because it kills the battery too fast

    Pretty good.

    By Martin Mueller

    from Ohio

    Comments about Digitech DDM Death Metal Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I really enjoy this pedal. I've had it for about 3 months now and it's still holding up strong. It's built like a tank and I love that. My only issue is that the sound can get flooded pretty easily. This pedal performs well with down tuning. If you are looking for a good pedal that packs a punch I suggest this. But if $50 is a little out of your price range I would also suggest the Behringer UM300 Ultra Metal it is only $25 and it competes with this pedal.

    Not balanced

    By Betsy McAloon

    from Milford, CT

    Comments about Digitech DDM Death Metal Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

    As far as metal goes, it's fair. For any other genre it wouldn't sound good at all. The high and low frequencies are ridiculously high from the start, so to make it sound good for anything but metal, you'd have to have them down to practically nothing. Even for metal they're a little high, though. You'll never have them up more than halfway, trust me. It's just a pretty mediocre pedal all around. The sound you get is always too thick. Unless you're into that kinda thing, I guess.

    Outstanding uber-high-gain

    By J. Potts

    from Bloomfield Hills, MI

    Comments about Digitech DDM Death Metal Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

    After buying the pedal and reading the reviews, here's my comments: It is a massively high-gain pedal. You WILL get feedback. Period. It is a massively high-gain pedal. If a gnat farts near your humbuckers, with will come through as hiss. Period. Buy a frickin' noise gate (like every other death metal guitarist has done). If you want note crystalline clarity, you obviously aren't playing death metal. Duh. It is an analog pedal, not digital. Period. If you want to play something from the Carpenters, do not buy this pedal. If you want to play something by the Cowsills, do not buy this pedal. If you can't dial in your favorite death metal band, try moving to active pickups and/or a preamp and a 10-band equalizer. Duh. The only bad thing about this pedal that I can think of is that there is no gain adjustment. Outside of that, it make my old Boss Metal Master sound like a sonic eunuch. And it cost half of what I paid for the other pedal. In short: me likey.

    Amazing Pedal!

    By Marco

    from Troy, MI

    Comments about Digitech DDM Death Metal Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

    This was one of the first pedals that I ever got and it still sounds amazing. I have a bad tendancy to be pretty rough on my gear and most other pedals actually broken in a month or two. this has lasted about 6 months of being stomped on by a metal-plated biker boot and there isn't a dent on it yet! also, out of the dozens of distortion pedals I've used, this is the best sounding by far. I would honestly pay double the price for this pedal. its the best one I've been able to find for one of the lowest prices I've been able to find!
