Dimebag Darrell tone in a box!!!!
By: Jason from Palmyra, PA, USA
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Built like a rock
How has it stood up over time?
I haven't had it but 2 weeks, but it's built really well I don't see having any problems with it as I never did with any of my MXR pedals.
Your general opinion of this product.
You can get so many different sounds out of this pedal. All the controls are very responsive and dynamic. I don't need the noise gate because I have active EMG pickups. I did try out the gate though however to cut off as soon as I palm mute. It works great. You can get very harsh sounds out of this box on solid state amps. I use it on a Bugera V5 tube amp so it's not as harsh. The mid scoop works fine, but I don't really use it.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Lots of tone in this pedal. It's easy to dial in a good sound. It works good on dark or bright amps.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Buzz saw treble. You can get Pantera 'walk' right out of the box with little effort tweaking it.
How did the stain or paint job look?
the finish is the only thing they cut corners on. There's no paint!
