DigiTech Grunge Pedal

DigiTech GrungePublished on 10/30/01 at 15:00
I bought this unit used for $45

I like that there are 4 knobs to play with (loud/volume, butt/bass, Face/treble, and Grunge). The tone is very over-the-top. If you are looking for loud and un-subtle, this is it.

You are limited by the shear power of the sound. Not a lot more use that "grunge".

Sturdy metal chasis.

This isn't a very versatile pedal but if you just need some pure power to rock the room, this is it.

Good Distortion

DigiTech GrungePublished on 04/01/11 at 15:46
This is a good distortion pedal. It can do from heavier blues to metal. It has a Volume Knob, a Bass Knob, a Tone Knob, and a Gain Knob (labeled Grunge). Despite it's name, this is NOT a pedal for Grunge. This is more of a metal pedal in my opinion.
It has an Input, and two outputs. One is for the amp, and the other has Cabinet simulation for direct input to a mixing console.

UTILIZATION

This is an easy pedal to use. The manual comes with suggested settings, but they're really only a ballpark figure. It's a little difficult to get a good tone out of this pedal, but very easy to get a bad one. Too much treble and it become a harsh, fizzy mess. It gets muddy very easy as well. The...…

UTILIZATION

This is an easy pedal to use. The manual comes with suggested settings, but they're really only a ballpark figure. It's a little difficult to get a good tone out of this pedal, but very easy to get a bad one. Too much treble and it become a harsh, fizzy mess. It gets muddy very easy as well. The Grunge knob controls the gain. It can go from a heavy blues style OD if EQ'd right, to a bass heavy, screaming, metal distortion.

SOUND QUALITY

This pedal sounds great for a $50 pedal. It can get very harsh and muddy very quick though. It takes a little playing with to dial in right because the knobs are sensitive. When dialed in right, it is a good metal distortion. It is really trebley though. You have to back up on the treble on the pedal and your amp when using this thing. It is also very very loud. This is NOT the best metal pedal around. It sounds decent enough, but there are pedals who do it and do it better. The amount of treble present in this thing is amazing. It takes a little bit to learn where to set it so it's not harsh and fizzy, but also not muffled and too bassy.

OVERALL OPINION

This is a decent pedal, but it's downfall is the amount of treble present in it. It has way too much treble. I used it to play Thrash, and it just wasn't cutting it. It can hold it's own against a BOSS MT-2, but it fails against anything else. It's very easy to make it Harsh and Fizzy. It's too easy to find a bad tone in it. If the dialed out some treble in it, it would be a great pedal. But as it stands, there are better in the price range than this.

It's Grunge

DigiTech GrungePublished on 06/07/12 at 16:58
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Analog pedal with two outputs, one for amp and one simulation for HP direct mixing console or pc.

UTILIZATION

Very easy to use, the manual is cool and suggests settings.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound is good, it sounds Grunge, the only problem is that you can adjust the treble and bass, but it lacks an adjustment for the midrange.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for four years, but since I acquired my Mesa Rectifier, I use it mostly for direct recording on the PC.
I bought 32 euros new and I do it again this choice.

DigiTech GrungePublished on 12/10/11 at 08:58
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Technology and Analog
For all the crap I can still say anything I do not know enough put in

UTILIZATION

Simple configuration with a button that loud volume quivaut
A button bass not very sensitive (I put in 3 / 4 to 1 / 4 in hight) but even when his work is
A button Hight against him by making it very sensitive distortion screaming fast enough
A button that grunge, basically a button quivaut dist. pedals on another, this means that adjusts the amount of distortion, but even by keeping 0 we have a rather strong distortion


No besion man, you the branch, and you find you are looking after a matter of taste

SOUND QUALITY

I use this pedal for a year and a prs, after having had a ds 1, ds2 boss (who, I think, sent not enough distortion, not enough power) and a big muff electro Harmonix I only use the little grunge like distortion, I use it with the ds 2 in suplement for lead channel, but even without aditional pedal, it goes pretty good for solos.
I use it on a mustang fender amp and a fender amp field with XD 25 as jag stang guitar with a Seymour Duncan SH4 JB in bridge and a micro strat good quality set, I plug in the fender XD25 and the field is the sound Kurt Cobain, it is therefore perfect for Nirvana ..
I also used a Gibson Les Paul faded and is the sound system of a down slipknot up, steve vai, van halen etc. ..

OVERALL OPINION

I have over the past year, I gain some pedals (ds1, ds2, bigmuff) to finally stay on if it's even more polivalente people think just by looking at its name ..
I choose to do it again without problem EXCELLENT quality price ratio
