Here's a gear demo of a Digitech Bad Monkey overdrive guitar pedal. I've had this one for about 2 years I think and its just been bumped off my pedal board to make room for a few other overdrives so I figured that I would put it to good use and demo it for anyone looking for an incredible overdrive pedal on a budget price. I've had one guitarist tell me he thought it was a better pedal than a modded keeley ts9. I don't actually agree with that, but I do believe this is the best overdrive you can get for the price. I got it for $40 but I think the price has been bumped up to $50 now? Not sure exactly. It is still well worth that money.

I did a couple different settings and hopefully you can tell which knobs I changed. I used a modified fender squier strat with fender lace sensors and a seymour duncan hot rails pickup. I mainly used the neck lace sensor (blue) and the hot rails to give the difference between single coils and humbuckers. I really can't say enough good about this pedal.

Enjoy and let me know what you think about it!

Cool demo mate, sounds cool, and looks like a low budget version of TS9, which is nothing bad at all. For that price it is very good deal.

Very cool sound. The intro crunchy sound reminded me of Keith Richards sound.

Yeh this definately has a unique sound compared to other overdrive pedals wich people may like, and not only that! its dirt cheap! i recently got a Maxon od808 and was thinking about getting one of those..


I definitely recommend it. Even though I don't even use it anymore I'm still super glad I bought it.
