overrated: Ibanez TS-9 and TS-808. too expensive compared sa SD-1.
SCOD. tried one, pero.... di na lang ako mag-dedescribe further. :-D
Tonebone series: Trimode, Plexitube, Hot British. it's supposed to be marketed as a tube pedal, but i can't hear any 'tube' sound in them, lalo na yung 'tube' feel. theyre good in their own right as a distortion pedal, but definitely for me its not tube sounding.

may lumabas ulit na thread na informative  :lol:

wala ko pakialam kung boutique or hindi yung pedal, tb or non-tb... may mga pedals na simple pero functional, kailangan din naman minsan maraming options...  :-)

overrated> boutique pedals

underrated> plastic enclosures pedals

 in general terms :evil:

I think it's hard to compare analog pedals to multi's cause both are in a very different league.

Agree with you guys that the metal zone is underrated.  Try to name it as your favorite pedal in a gear forum, and you'll probably get a hater or two, especially in this day and age of bowteeek.   :-D

Its parametric mid EQ knobs are powerful tools, and it's the reason why it was so popular back in the day.  Set to some low gain settings, it becomes a versatile overdrive pedal or booster (it isn't just a metal distortion!).  And nowadays, there are a lot of mods you can do to it.  For starters, if you find it sounds too 80's with its nasal midrange, just take out two capacitors for a basic mod.

Ok.  Putting on flame suit now.  Be gentle on me please.   :-D

+1 you can get lots of good tones from this pedal.

Spit it out!

But yeah the DL-4 IMO is one hell of a pedal, maybe some underrate it because they try to get the classic delay out of it(hence people turn to the nova delay) but the real forte of the DL-4 is in the features like the modulate, sweep, etc.

i agree pero imo siguro others consider the reliability issues ng dl4 kaya sha underrated...

MISMO! The usual problems from what I've heard are the footswitches, but I think with proper care the DL4 would last for a very long time(It's like a tank, very heavy and big). But still, I'm getting one.  :-D
