Digitech dirt shootout

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by H3R3T1K, Nov 27, 2013.

  1. Which one do you like better and why? Also post your settings if you like.

    I'm asking because I'm still looking for a decent dirt pedal and cannot spend much. I'm looking for some tubesounding dirt that I plan to always leave on. So nothing extreme, just making my SS amp sound more like a cranked up tube amp. I got the BM because it's cheap and well it's OK but think I'll compare it to the others. I've already read on here that the CM-2 is supposed to be the BM "done right". I'd like to know how it compares to the Bass Driver and a modded BM.

    Yep. Hardwire CM2. Like a Bad Monkey without the sucky sound :)

    I've had a couple of unmodded BM and still have a BassDriver. The BMs were way too subtle, only felt the effect at maxed settings and those settings came with too much noise. The BassDriver is IMO an interesting pedal offering a multitude of tones and yeah, some of'em are good and some of'em suck. The blend, tone and morph knobs make the possibilities limitless and I really liked the SVT and ProCo settings. The VT Bass is my dirt pedal for now, but the BD did a decent job for me.

    I use a BassDriver and a Bass Big Muff Pi together and like the results. I know they are not the best on the market, but the price is right and they get the job done.
  5. Newbie question: What's the gain of using two pedals of the same type together? (OD and fuzz I mean) Will try the BM with the BD and CM-2.
