Bad Monkey OD pedal
« Thread started on: Jun 13th, 2007, 09:50am »
i have a HR50+ and ocassionally use a MXR ZW OD pedal for lead boosts, etc. But i've noticed this pedal is sorta noisey with my setup...so on a whim, I purchased the Digitech Bad Monkey Tube OD pedal...and much to my surprise...it sounds great!!! very quiet, tweakable with the added low/high eq, analog...overall impressive for a $39 pedal. most of the Digitech stuff i don't care for...but this is a nice pedal.

Yeah, my brother had a pair of them .I modded one for more bass. They are a pain to work on. The one that I did for him is the only one I will ever open up. I used to play in a band in which the bass player used one for od. The only thing I can say is you have to treat them well. My bass player stomped on it too hard once and crushed the battery inside ... it didn't go well from there on.
