i just got my bad monkey! yehey! hehehe! ayus! astig na overdrive! galit na galit yung distortion nya kapag may hm-100 before bad monkey... hehehe!

ano ba magandang mix sa bad monkey... before and after connections??

kapag connect ko sya before hm-100 para pang boost, add gain lang sya sa hm-100... so not much different sa original sound ng hm-100

pero kapag bad monkey after hm-100... malagkit yung distortion na produce nila... hehehe!

ano pa experience nyo sa mix ng bad monkey? san nyo ba sya ginagamit? boost lang ba sya? or main dirt?

any overdrive pedal can be modified to be better than a ts808 or ts9...

even the ts9 itself can be modified to be better sounding than a ts stock ts9

man, daming followers ang bad monkey. i just started this thread to ask about the BM... i already have  a ts9dx and ts 808 both of which are stock..easy to please naman ako e

owning a bad monkey is not on my list though. affordable sya than a ts9 or ts 808, i doubt it's better tonewise. but for the money, it's not bad.

sa mga barkada dito sa socal, i havent seen anyone who owns a BM.

but because of this thread, may 10 na cgurong bumili...... i should get royalties from digitech for starting this damn thread.

soundclips guys?

@blues2death, may soundclip sa digitech site ;)

what i liked about the bad monkey is when the gain is set to minimum.. it tends to have more dynamics and lesser gain when drive is at zero... + it has a treble+bass control which i found to be very flexible & compensate more to amps at diff. venues, compared to a regular TS.

TS9 vs BM --> i'd choose a BM
OD9 vs BM --> OD9 is better, and warmer & more natural sounding than TS9 or BM. It made the TS9 & BM sounds generic..

what you would hate about BM it is it's footswitch! It's like stepping on a sofa :lol:

bro....don't diss the ts808 or ts9... coz the only bad thing about them is the price.

i won't diss the bad monkey, but i have my own things to say about the bad monkey.

i was entered to play this contest "king of the blues" at guitar center...

i lived in laguna hills and i had my pedalboard at a friend's house in glendale. pretty long drive. and having no car at the time, there was no way i could go to his house to pick it up.

having no pedals on hand, i opted to buy the bad monkey so i don't have to ride the train get my pedals.

when i tested the bad monkey... i just didn't like it. returned it and ended up borrowing a friend's fulltone drive pedal plugged into a peavey classic. nevertheless i didn't qualify for the semis because of a confusion that i look liked another contestant....but that is a different story.

now i am not saying the bad monkey is a bum pedal. i liked my ts9 dx and ts 808 better....

the bm is not built to imitate the tubescreamer, but hey...it's green!

dissing another pedal to build up another one isnt the way to go.

i like my pedal better...and that is that..if you like the BM better...good for you.

respect.

Bad Monkey is getting a lot of praise in Harmony Central. MarKV is correct, footswitch is kinda soft... missing that normal 'click' effect. but the sound.... d*mn... very tight and punchy. I've tried using this as a stand alone drive on Live setting and it really rocks.

im not dissing the ts9 or ts808 for my BM... im just saying that i bought BM because i cant afford tubescreamers... pero kung afford ko naman ang TS, then why not... thats all... i just want a good, heavy duty, transparent, cheap overdrive...

nakasubok na ko ng ts9... its more transparent... a good overdrive too! but like i said... cant afford

as for the BM, may high and low eq sya, so versatile... IMHO, the BM is similar to Tubescreamers in terms of that its an overdrive and they add tube like character to your tone... for the sound... not a clone! kanya kanyang taste pa din... :-D

ipapa-mod ko na lang BM ko para better sya sa tubescreamer! hehehe!!

peace!

me to.. i disagree... ts-9 is better than a bad monkey..

IMHO,

i also have a TS9 (stock) and i agree that it's a good pedal but it could be better.  things i don't like about it are:  midrange hump on all settings, a little weak on the bass, i feel its not transparent enough.  what i like about it though is that it's an excellent boost pedal and good combo to a slightly dirty amp. 

i know i could have it modified but i decided to spend the cash on the bad monkey to see what the rave was about.  things i like about it?  warmer overdrive esp. with a strat, can be used as a stand alone, more transparency, great pair to a slightly dirty amp, and thank god for the bass control.  no plans of modifying it and for the price; two thumbs up!

wala naman, since the bad monkey is a clone of a tubescreamer... i think it would be helpful for others if at least compared to where the BM was cloned from. Just a basis/guide.. ;)

Maxon kasi ung 'real' tubescreamers (od808 & od9)

actualy this thread made me easier to decide in buying bad monkey... hehehe! but this thread is actually started that this pedal is not a clone of ts808...

IMO, sir blues2death is right... it is 50-60% similar to ts808 because its an overdrive and adds tube character to your tone... so parehas silang tube overdrive/screamer!  :-D

pero syempre, they have their own adv. and disadv. for each user...  :-D
