I have a hard decision to make, whether or not to buy the DigiTech DF7 Distortion Factory or the Roctron Metal Planet. I have $100 USD to spend. I am hoping for some feedback on the two pedals and/or if anyone has any experience with either.

Thanks in advance!

i have a zoom g9.2tt, but i think you need at least the g7 zoom to get a good sound, one of the two models with tubes. I also got the bottom end zoom model g1.x, same chip, but it does not have the good quality sound of the g9.2tt

I have heard good things about the DF7.

I don't know anything about the rocktron but the df-7 is pretty popular among the metalheads here at GMC.

I personally would suggest getting the metal muff for a distortion pedal.

Or something like this :

I'm not sure what quality is that modeling they did in Digitech...I don't recommend you any modeling pedals or multieffects..Rocktron is not very famous for their distortion pedals..Also I hear their chorus pedal which was not very good at all..Look at some of the boss pedals ...

Pavel likes it. Ii would not categorize him as a metalhead. I have definitely seen him play some of the unwound strings from time to time. and I have never heard him growl or swing his hair around in a video.

True but pavel isn't the only guy here who has one. (though it'd be funny to see pavel act like kai or something tongue.gif)

And I agree with bogdan about the boss pedal, at least over the digitech and rocktron (I just love boss - you can't go wrong though I still think the metal muff is a little better, but it's mostly preference).

+1!

Awesome pedal.

From my personal experience don't get a MT-2, its really.. Just not my favorite pedal, to harsh and piercing.

He likes some prog and power metal stuff so that at least would count him as a metalhead.\

As for metal pedals, you can't go wrong with a Metal Muff. You can get some pretty deep tone in a Metal Muff from that classic 80's Marshall like growl ala Judas Priest to a something heavier like Deeds Of Flesh or Suffocation for those Death Metal riffs. If you have a choice reconsider trying out a Metal Muff. It hasn't let me down yet and I will keep recommending it to anyone looking for a great hard rock/heavy metal distortion box

I just saw a proposition of Metal Muff ...

I'll have to go +1 on that...

Electro-harmonix stuff is just great and sometimes pricey which is not the case with the metal muff..So go for it wink.gif wink.gif

Wow - a debate on: "Is Pavel a metalhead or not?" laugh.gif 95% of my playlists are metal bands, but i don't see a reason why i should wear some crazy T-Shirts and have long hair to prove i am a metalhead wink.gif Life is much more than being true to metal. I also like players who can REALLY play metal and look like they don't even play guitar than metalheads who are "TRUE" but can't even play a C-Major scale wink.gif

Isn't a "guitarist" a good enough word to describe who am i? laugh.gif laugh.gif

Back on topic:
Stay away from cheaper Zoom pedals - i had experience with it and i wouldn't suggest it.
I love DF7 so, as you expected, i will vote for it.

Bogdan: DF7 is a high quality distortion modeling pedal. Never disappointed me. A LOT of GMC-ers have DF7 here.

Well if it works good for you Pavel than it will work good for Alucard also , and since his decision was between digitech and rocktron I think its solved now wink.gif I never used/heard pedal so I was doubtful about the "modeling" part wink.gif

Well you can hear it in all of my lessons smile.gif I Use DF7 an Digidelay which are both Digitech pedals. Would never change them for some other pedals, at least for now. I know the choice of pedals also depends on the amp you have so as long as i have this Avt50 amp i am completely happy with these two Digitech pedals.

Hehehe nice..I also have two digitech pedals in my boss pedal board eheh wink.gif ...I don't think that digitech is somewhat inferior to other brands out there like boss, mxr ,electro-harmonix..They are all very good so It all comes down to individual taste wink.gif

Totally agree.
Unless you want to sound like a space ship, cheap zooms will let you down.
They have nothing in the way of distortion.

+1 on that. Especially the distortion is absolutely awful on the old ones.

Forget both of these and get something more decent - like Boss MT2 or Muff.
