its a distortion pedal

Ease Of Use This pedal requires some tweaking to get that fat, juicy distortion that everyone wants. The knobs are simple and very responsive. There is a level, high range, low range, and a gain dial. also there is a switch between a crunch and saturated sound. This pedal plays well with others, and takes up very little space on the pedal boards.
the crunch/saturated switch is hard to flip while standing up

Sound I play my american lace sensor strat into this, into a chorus pedal of the same line by digitech, into a mesa/boogie studio .22 combo. The sound is very raw, but kind of the 'classic' distortion found on many old classic rock albums.

What i dont like about this pedal is that it leaves me wanting 'more'. If there was an overdrivepedal in this series that provided a similar sound with a 'more' option, then I would buy it in a heartbeat

Reliability This pedal, as far as i can tell, is pretty sturdy. I've never gigged with it though

Customer Support never dealt with digitech

Liked about it crunch/saturation option
'classic' sound

Didn't like needs more oopmh
hard to switch between crunch and saturated without having to bend down on stage

Overall satisfaction:
