i got this pedal and its the beat ive played on (boss ds1, digitech death metal, and fab metal) perfect amount of distortion. not to much, like the "death metal", and way more than the ds1. i recomend this pedal if u play metal. cause i get an early megadeth/pantera sound on this.

This is the 2nd pedal I ever bought. Way back in '94... AND I STILL USE IT! I've used lots of pedals and there ARE much better pedals then this out there, but it's always been one of my faves for blues, or metal rythm when performing. I also use it when recording or practicing. LOW feedback, not alot of gain or sustain. BOTTOM LINE: think "WEEZER" tunes like 'Buddy Holly' and you'll know EXACTLY how this lil guy sounds.

CRISP!!!

By Anthony

from Cleveland, Ohio

I bought this pedal just to see how it would sound playing Metal, and this has the metal crunch, and it's very affordable at the same time, i dont really like grunge but if you want that Metallica/Panter heavy bass metal sound, i reccomend you try this out.

The Grungiest Around

By Cody Frederick

from Allentow, PA

If you are looking for extra volume or a great dirty grunge sound, then the Digitech Grunge Distrotion pedal is the right one to get. It is a great pedal for someone currently in music, or just starting out. It has 4 effect knobs including: level(volume), low, high, and grunge(distortion). You can get the exact sound you want, without the hassel of confusing instructions. It works great with all amps, and I love it because it was in my budget and it was well worth it.

This is a really good ...

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This is a really good pedal, especially for the price. I have had it for about 4 months and its the first pedal I bought. It has a huge variety of distortion. It could use a mid but high and low are fine. sounds great.

not a grunge pedal but still great

By mike

from portland, maine

i play grunge so when i got this i thought it would give me a nirvana tone. the pedal didnt do that but a gave me a great systom of a down, disturbed and some high gain band sounds. i love this pedal. it doesnt give make the loud buzzing noises that other pedals make and it has the perfect amount of distortion. it is the best metal pedal i have ever used.

No bad, but not durable

By TheJimmer

from Mishawaka, IN

I had the digitech grunge pedal back when it was made by DOD. It has a great sound for grunge and with the sustain turned up it's great for soloing. But mine broke pretty quick after I bought it and I had to go with somthing a little higher quality.

Great Pedal

By AFIlover4life75

from Detroit, MI

This is my first pedal I've bought and it's really great. I didn't know what to expect. I've heard it was really good so I thought I might test it out. I bought it and it sounds good. Now I will always buy DigiTech pedals.

Dead after 2 sessions

By Angelnero

from NY

I purchased this pedal in need pf a new distortion box.... needless to say, you get what you pay for. Plugged this in and had a good time with it for 2 sessions, then all of a sudden loud feedback and static when i plug it into my effects loop, horrible quality and deffinetely doesnt last. Stay safe, go with a Boss.

DigiTech Grunge Pedal

By MuzicMaster94

from Agoura Hills, CA

My friend got me this pedal as a present and at first it was awesome. Great distortion. But after about two months of using it the jack where the 9V adapter went became loose or something and impossible to work. I had to jimmy the adapter into the jack for 10 minutes and then hold it in one position for it to even turn on, and as soon as I let go, it turned off. Another problem is that it doesnt run off a battery, so because the adapter didn't work, the pedal didn't work. Maybe it was just mine, but I suggest you don't buy this pedal, just in case.

Amazing!!!

By Dimy Villain

from Los Angeles, CA

I've had this pedal for about two years now, its been my first pedal. I Love the sound it brings to my guitar gives it a old school metal and punk sound to it. I Have it hooked up to a Marshall MG100HDFX/MG412 Half Stack with Digital Effects , and i play with a Jackson JS30RR best combination ever!!!!

Excellent Sound

By MARKM

from Raleigh

I really like the way the pedal sounds. i like the size and ease of use too. its also very customizable as far as sound goes. the only downside is that is eats 9v batteries alive. if it came with the A/C adapter instead of me having to buy it separately, then i would give it 5 stars

By FutureFelon13

I've been lookin for a distortion pedal so i listend to all of the distortion pedals and choose the digitech grunge pedal.It was my first pedal and i was amazed at what it could do to my music.This pedal has the right amount of distortion not to much like the death metal pedal or too little like the hot rod pedal.If you are looking for a new pedal for your setup this is the right pedal for you!

Great Pedal

By Matt

from South Bend, IN

Great and cheap. It gets great distorted sounds, but it's amazing at grunge distortion (who would've guessed). It gets really dirty or real light. It can also double as your main/only distortion pedal. Great for 90's stuff, works for metal too.

I <3 You

By Hooper

from Hamilton, Ohio

I have had this pedal for about a year or so now, and I love it. I heard about it from a friend I was jammin' with and decided to pick it up. Soon after I fell in love with it. The distortion sounds great and you can vary the sound through the two tone knobs. Its a great buy and a great pedal.

Awesome

By russiannin JA

from Dallas, TX

I got this pedal for Christmas a year ago. It was my first distortion pedal and it's one of my favorites for grunge or "nu-metal" music. This pedal still meets my distortion needs for every single band practice. It's not perfect though. You can really only get two or three really good sounds out of it. It can't produce any weird distortion variations by itself. I really only use one setting and that's for getting the heavy, low nu-metal tone. In that aspect, though, it works perfectly- better than just about any pedal i've played on. If you want a pedal that can give you a heavy impact (as opposed to "demo tape distortion"), this pedal is great for the price.

DigiTech All The Way!

By brickmaster1133

from Edgerton WI

This pedal is amazing! The distortion sounds great, and the pedal looks awesome. This pedal is also heavy duty, you could probably run it over a few times and it would work great (I have not tried this, and therefore I don't recommend it). The battery life is also pretty good, and when the battery starts to die the light will dim until you can barely see it, so you'll know when to change it. I am currently using this in my band for more heavy stuff. So if you want a heavy duty pedal, that sounds great, looks awesome, and won't leave a hole in your pocket? Then this is the pedal for you.
