General Your general opinion of this product. Digitech really hit a homerun with this pedal. Though they are mostly known for their Digital gear this is an analog pedal that will(when used properly) really lift your tone if you are using a tube amp. I also used it with a Peavey Bandit and it performed great with that also. This is my 3rd one because I keep 2 on my board and one for home. It's really an integral part of my rig and I have been playing guitar now for nearly 30 years and am a tone freak with selective ears. I sold my TS9 when I bought my first Bad Monkey. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Excellent and heavy duty build. I am not crazy about the access for the battery but I use a one spot any way so.. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? level, high, low, and gain. Simple as a pimple on a dimple. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Can go from spanky to dark and lots of stuff in between. Experiment and you will find a good sound. Action How was the action out of the box? N/A Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Eh..not crazy about the color but what can ya do? Reliability How has it stood up over time? I still have my first one I bought over 5 years ago. Still works flawlessly.
A solid overdrive/boost for not much coin

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Not really much to go wrong with a pedal like this. It seems tough and road ready. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Perfectly fine, but I'm a studio rat so it hasn't left my home since I got it. General Your general opinion of this product. Lots of people own and sing the praises of this pedal, so I thought I'd check one out. I think it does its job very well. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? The switch itself has a very positive feel, solid and stiff. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? It brightens things up a tad, but that's part of what it's supposed to do. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Looks green. :) Action How was the action out of the box? N/A
