Mine is my Bad Monkey.
Very nice pedal, just not gonzo enough for my band. OTOH, I got
through the holiday party gig I did with just a Bad Monkey, a tuner,
and a delay pedal. It worked great for all the classic rock covers.
Yeah they don't have much grunt but the high and low knobs give a pretty
good boost in their respective ranges and so does the level control. I use
mine to push my Carvin XV212 into gain heaven. With my gain set to 2 on the
Carvin it gives a great lead tone when engaged and with the gain set to
anything above 6 and the hot rod switch on the Carvin kicked on I can get
into pretty much any Metal territory I need. Use it on my clean channel and
I get a creamy blues/classic rock sound. I just ordered another one to see
what chaining two of them together will accomplish.
What I'm really waiting for is to see what Amplitube 2 sounds like through
my 1k watt PA system. The Bad Monkey btw is perfect with that program if set
to lower settings. Our drummer keeps blowing off practice and we jam at his
place so it's been aggravating waiting to go test it out. I may bite the
bullet soon and go pay the crazy price the rehearsal spots want round here.
Shit at this point I will take a second job just to be able to have band
I just bought a DOD reissue 250, sounded great on the clips I heard.
When I got it, not so great. Plugged my Bad Monkey in and it was hands
down better. DOD being returned. Not saying the Bad Monkey is my best
pedal, but I like it more and more the more I AB it with many others.
