The DigiTech Death Metal Distortion is a distortion pedal for guitar players. Black in color with the word of Death Metal written in red to make it looked fierce. Death Metal Distortion is used by metal guitarist,it is compact and easy to tweak.

Death Metal pedal has 3 equalizer knob, users can adjust the tone to their liking. Plus the out 2(mixer) that features Digitech speaker cabinet emulation,so users can run the pedal directly into a mixer or recorder input.


There is no knob to adjust the amount of distortion. This makes this pedal so not user friendly and versatile.


RM 280 – RM300


Death Metal Distortion is practical for anybody that craves for a heavy distortion guitar sound. This pedal is slightly heavy sounding compare to Boss Metal Core. I liked the sound of this pedal combined with a full humbucker  guitars. Playing those heavy riffs really sounded ground shaking. Highly recommended for the metal heads out there.
