    The imitation of the big muff is downright exellent, the fuzz face and the sub octave fuzz are well managed to too and I also really like the quieter sounds kind Tube drive, screamer sound and color, distos line 6 (y are 2) are cool too: OD and a big, modern distortion is going well.

    A deconseiller for big metalhead, modeling of MTZ 2 is good-but not the less, the rigor has big distortion line is prettier but the metal is not the purpose of this pedal .dropoff window

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I dessperais to find a sound that go away without buying me all the pedals to the unit and really this small DM4 that is super satisfying, in my opinion this is what we can find better in this kind of product and price, they foute not yours at line 6 is a product of a great quality and sound are beautiful Marie Joseph that is all that j'demandais from tps .dropoff window

    The pedal simulates the sound of several pedals saturation. We rgle sound, one remains on the switch appuy wanted three seconds, and the sound remains in memory. Damage with gear so powerful that not being able to store 4 sounds, this is curbing the possibilities this live machine and makes the blow a bit costly.

    USE

    The knob is not as progressive and interactive than the analog and operate and are evolving almost by beaches, end rglages are therefore somewhat delicate, especially live use. I find a bit boring argler dm4 and the interaction with rglages not always gniale. better than the real paper.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Possd having a multitude of pedals, j 'affirms the experience that simuls sounds are not the same as those of the original pedals. This is not serious, it s' record, but it must be said. and in general, they are not as good.
    J and I have had several analog pedal simulated by the dm4 and does not sound the same. Example, my dod 250 gray vintage has nothing to do with the sim dod250 over medium, lamp and less transparent and more compression on the dm4. we keep in mind, but it's not the same envelope.
    Many of the presets quickly send gain my taste. There's nothing quite subtle doverdrive has low gain anything. many sounds for strange sounds, but not basic sounds. too many preset gain too quickly with a double micro Team guitar.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    Some pedals simulated not seem better also chosen because not really necessary, but good for example, who really needs vital fawn 2 octa-fuzz today? this is stupid, because food has 2 presets dm4. Finally, this is a matter of taste. strange sounds or sounds boilerplate?
    The advantage is the good bypass, no breath, 1 pedal instead of 4 and programming memory and some sounds have their interest.
    Rgl sound good on the guitar neck pickup, do not necessarily sound good on the micro bridge and vice versa, so why voil 4 sounds seem insufficient compared to the power of the machine.
    It needs a very good tube amp to remove the small cot and digital medium and the pedal seems more intressante for overdubs or put some color tones are places of a piece, for example, rather quune non-stop use as its base and main pedal.

    Multi Overdrive / Distortion / Fuzz

    Digital technology.

    It is the re-creation of 14 pedals were stories electric guitar sounds of the 60's to today. Added to this is two very modern modes line 6.

    list with the pedal that served as a model to face:

    • Boost / Comp-MXRMicro Amp (associated with a compressor)
    • Tube Drive, Chandler Tube Driver
    • Screamer-Ibanez TS-808
    • DOD Overdrive-250 preamp overdrive
    • Classic-Pro Co Rat Distortion

    • Jumbo Fuzz-Vox Tone Bender
    • Fuzz Pi Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi (version triangle)
    • Jet Fuzz-Roland Jet Phaser
    • Line 6 Drive
    • Line 6 Distortion
    • Sub Octave Fuzz-Paia Roctave Divider
    • Octave Fuzz-Tycobrahe Octavia

    You can see that the models chosen are mythical, some like the Fuzz Face or Tone Bender in their original version can reach thousand euro occasion.

    To this is added a noise gate function, the ability to operate the pedal true bypass or not, and connect an expression pedal.

    UTILIZATION

    The manuals are available online and in French on the Line6 site. The operation is very simple, we choose a sound and is assigned to one of four footswitch pressing 3s above. May therefore be stored in memory 4 sounds, clear and start at will.

    SOUND QUALITY

    I am fortunate to have a few pedals reproduced in their original version: Fuzz Face, TS-808, Big Muff, Pro Co Rat. The result is every time very realistic and very effective. The difference is mainly in the fact that Line 6 is very quiet, it's hitting the fuzz and distortion. We are not obliged to love all available sounds and thus their original model, for my part I have never needed a Boss MT-2.
    According to my taste I find the trio Fuzz Face, Big Muf, Tone Bender really good.
    I also like the Chandler Tube Driver that I knew that name and which is excellent.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The price of the occasion should really try and take the time to make the sounds, trying from carefully the origins models, the manual Line 6 actually allows this.
    I really like the great place that is granted to all such Fuzz, this is the perfect pedal to complement a pedal board without breaking the bank. I love the spirit of this machine is the good stuff.

    I bought it for $200 used at Guitar Center, but was in perfect condition. I bought it because I had read good reviews on it, and needed some new sounds for my playing.

    I like how there are 4 available presets, and 16 different distortion settings. It's easy to preset, and the sound and quality of this unit is amazing. I play everything from punk, to rockabilly, and this has all the sounds I need to play them.

    The gold-yellow color.

    This is a top quality stomp box, it's built extremely well. It's gotten kicked and hit with the vacuum, but it takes a licking and sounds like new. The sound is impeccable, and it's sturdy and loud enough to last through your gigs.

    Alright, this is the best distortion pedal I've ever played and I have played a lot. This is top quality manufacturing and great sound for an even better price. With sounds modeling effects such as Tube Driver, Rat, Tube Screamer, Big Muff, Fuzz Face, etc., you can't go wrong.

    I paid $250 for this pedal. I am usually opposed to buying and dislike multi-fx processers, but I knew that this one was different. I was originally going to buy a Marshall blues pedal and another Boss single effect pedal, but I fell in love with this as soon as I played it. I paid $250 for the pedal, $20 for the power supply, and $50 for the expression pedal.

    I like this unit because it fit the kinds of music I played (mostly Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin and a bunch of older stuff). I like this because there is pretty much a distortion type for every band and song you can imagine. You can also adjust the levels of drive, volume, and more to each of the types.

    I like this unit because it fit the kinds of music I played (mostly Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin and a bunch of older stuff). I like this because there is pretty much a distortion type for every band and song you can imagine. You can also adjust the levels of drive, volume, and more to each of the types. If you want a clean sound, you can still use this pedal. There is a clean sound, so you adjust the settings, and you can use the expression pedal as a volume pedal.

    What I dislike is that you can't really switch the types while performing. I mean you can, and I suppose you can maneuver your foot, put it really is a pain to turn the little dial. I guess if you're not wearing shoes, it would be easier, but I just use my fingers to change it. This really can get crazy when you're playing live though.

    This is a solid unit. The construction is very good. I treat my pedal with lots of care, but I suppose it could withstand a lot. I never dropped it, but I'm sure it would be fine. I've never had a problem with this. The finish is really nice (gold) and I wouldn't trade this thing in for anything. This almost looks as sharp as it plays.

    I think this is a great unit. I would definately buy another if I lost this. This helps me cover basically anything I want or write cirtually whatever I want. The dials for each sound type will let you cover basically any sound. These endless amounts of sounds mean that any sound can be imitated or created. The expression pedal can be used to warp between sounds, and sometimes I even use it as a volume pedal. The power supply means I don't constantly burn through batteries; trust me, I use this A LOT.

    Bottom Line- I love my pedal. Cheers to Line 6!

    $225 off of Ebay. I bought this box as it purported to model a whole slew of vintage and not so vintage distortion and overdrive pedals. I also wanted the capability of having more than one distortion/gain effect available on a footpedal, and this pedal allows 3 presets to be selected with the click of a switch.

    Very heavy duty, very realistic modeling of the vintage pedals (and I've had a lot of them). Easy to set-up and use, easy to program up to 3 presets on the footpedal. Wide variety of tones/settings to choose from.

    Very heavy duty switches and case, somewhat flimsy cord from external power supply that plugs into the unit. They would have been better off with a permanent AC cord.

    This is a great pedal if you want to use 3 distortion/overdrive settings available via the press of a footswitch. The large variety of tone/gain settings make it easy to select which ones you want to save to the footswitches (3 at a time). I got rid of all my other distortion pedals and kept this one. I like it a lot.

    UTILIZATION

    Very easy to use, even too easy.
    trs the knobs accessible, effective at a concert.

    The sounds are trs good, yet I have a Mexican Start.
    there are 16 sounds Deferred clear sound (MXR) through the fuzz (HENDRIX) or

    SOUND QUALITY

    It's actually rdition of pedals that have marked the history of the guitar distortion, plus one or two surprises in line.
    I use a stratos us in 2004 (with microphones rtags) it works pretty well, but the amp lamp (Marshall Master Model MK II) has the tendency beef in mga big distos mtalleux base ...
    On small or saturatios crunch, nothing to say, one would easily retoutve, large distos are slightly more complex rgler but the pleasure is.
    Double saturation (pr crunch prcd a Big Muff) adchire, she do not eat all of her rival frquence with VOX and until the sound is nickel ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought used, I reget it at all.
    One or two small default, the batteries will eat up great speed, (3 hours and you can change), and the power supply is specific since the 1200 mA is not an octopus that can dlivrer.
    The air potentiomtres is fragile, but the air just as it is carted over 6 months and not flinch.

    Finally for me as an all-tube possde no distirtions Intgr is the rve as there are any level without any complications.

    UTILIZATION

    It's easy as a pedal ...
    The manual is excellent, with qques jokes (they are specialist in home Line6) ...

    SOUND QUALITY

    I searched for a long time the sound of distortion that I like, I found some with a Spitfire and LAG and then I found some neat stuff with the GX-700 and now the PSA-1. and then trying to qquechose easy to carry and with its multiple (3 minimum) I came across the top and I must admit that there is no real competitor: 4 programs, 16 to 330 euros sounds DIFFERENT ...
    The sound? Incredbeul! stunning .... I stop right superlatives, the EQUAL are still effective, and 16 model of the booster to the devastating distortion through the overdrive lamp has ...
    I mainly use a model of driver tube, and a LINE6 TS808 DRIVE ... I even used my electro acoustic preamp as external, the micro amp model is transparent ...

    However, a BMOL: Models Big Muff and Fuzz Face out with a level infrieur other.
    A dernire thing: those who believe that AC will be ringing any gourent amp, I play what I found in the studio and nothing will replace the lamps for amplification ... With a JC120, ca not come out, but it sounds gouache, on the other hand in my best in a twin or AC30, then the!!

    Last update: 5-4-2006: I just redcouvrir what a guitar sound. Not for electrical jou qques weeks, I am surprised to find the sound of the beast quite cold during a sudden beef ... I WAS in a twin branch yet, but I dcu t .. I bought a Tri dj Ac for the dynamics, but I find it really difficult to resolve. I cherchaios qque it simple, I found my happiness in a trio acahat: Supercomp - Tube Factor - Micro Amp, I rdcouvert the sound of my guitar and my belongings .. . really ... Finally, nothing beats the lamps. The DM4 ets "practice" can be quite out of his remarkable if only one is plugged into an amp trs good but will never be "thrilled". I complterai necessary.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Difficult to scratch who want the DNAS his pocket and want more than two sounds is THE solution.
    Report indniablement excellent quality price (330 euros per machine, it makes the pedals 80 euros on average ... it takes a good 150 for the classic pedal unit)

    A BMOL: it numrique: ca bouffe batteries, I bought a power supply "basic" it works very well.

    I would buy can be the same, but I compare it with the sort of Ac Sansamp.
    April 2006 update:
    Since I bought the Tri Ac, more vibrant, more natural (puisqu'analogique the modlisation still room for improvement) but plsu chaint (sorry) has regelr. I have since changed again: Tube Factor ... the slap of his true, finally. it bothers me to say this but nothing beats the lights ... That said, I do not change the overall score, the DM ets a very good product, versatile and practical, but if you want a very good sound quality is nothing to do: tubes!!
