  • Good Value as an Experimental Toy

    As reviewed by Jeff Hwang on 2/21/2012

    Let's start by talking about what it DOESN'T do. (1) The DM4 doesn't allow you to mix distortions/overdrives, so if you are the type to stack overdrives you are still going to need separate boxes. (2) The DM4 has five knobs -- drive, volume, and three tone knobs -- and as such may not be fully featured for individual distortions, where say the Boss Metal Zone on which the "Heavy Distortion" is based has four, or where the MXR Custom Badass '78 distortion (based on the same ProCo Rat as the "Classic Distortion") has an extra crunch feature, etc. (3) While the "Screamer" based on the Ibanez TS-808 sounds quite good, most people who want a Tube Screamer these days will want to go with a Keeley- or Analogman-modded TS9. That said, as an experimental toy, the DM4 is a pretty good value for under $250. The DM4 gives you access to a wide variety of sounds that a player might not otherwise get unless it were packaged this way. For example, you might not be into metal but may feel the urge to play metal on a whim -- the DM4 has a Metal Zone clone. You might never buy six different fuzz petals, but the DM4 has them if you feel like experimenting with different sounds. The short of it is that if you want an individual sound and/or want to stack overdrives, you are going to want individual boxes and the DM4 may not be for you. But if money is no object or you are a casual player, the DM4 offers good value as an experimental toy.

  • Great combo distortion

    As reviewed by Jase T. on 3/20/2009

    This is by far the best distortion pedal I've ever own.I've own several pedal distortion for past,or,reissue.With 16 different style of distortion and 4 preset switches,and expression pedal.Even My Boss OD-20 din'nt have the sound I've been looking for.My DM-4 has all the top quality distortion without carrying whole bunch of distortion pedals.I compared it to alot of my friends single type pedals such as Ibanez tub screamer,Boss metal zone,big muff,etc.And they were empress how close or even better sound then thier pedals.I recommend The DM-4 for its versatility,easy access to all effects,presets,and of course less pedals to carry.

  • Great tones, with one BIG drawback

    As reviewed by Chad on 6/17/2011

    Does a good job at filling my needs, but I had to write this review for one reason. The BIG drawback to this pedal is that you can only turn on one stompbox at a time. Any distortion-fiend knows that the best tones are created by combining pedals. I was really hoping I could do the classic tube driver/Big Muff combo on this and was severely disappointed. All said, it fills my needs for now until I get the cash together to buy the units I want. But Line 6 should take note that, if I HAD been able to turn on two models at once, I probably never would have bought another pedal. That one feature was the deal breaker to me, and I would imagine will be the deal breaker for many other people.
