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.

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.

Easy to taylor an unlimited array of tones. From thunderous bass to pins and needles highs.
Over-all a very distorted distortion that won't leave you clean.

      Didn't like this at all, shrill. Get a noise suppressor to go with it.

        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.

            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.

            Comments about Digitech DDM Death Metal Distortion Guitar Effects 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.

              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.
