Digitech DigiVerb Effects Pedal : Review

DigiVerb

Few things for a good job

It provides few but effective controls and seven different reverbs. It features a cabinet emulator and two outputs, for mono and stereo connections, more the possibility to connect it directly in a Mixer or in a recorder.

Controls

  • Level
  • It adjusts, substantially, the mix between the original signal and the effect. When this knob is at the maximum position, the sound of your guitar is completely removed. Much useful, for example, when the pedal is inserted in an effects loop.

  • EQ
  • The equalization. It acts on the higher frequences.

  • Decay
  • This knob modifies the Reverb length. Turning it clockwise increases the duration, on the contrary it decreases it.

Speaker Emulator

Like other Digitech devices, it features an on-board speaker-emulator. This is a useful function when, for example, you run a distortion pedal into the DigiVerb and then you run it directly into a mixer or a recorder.

Power consumption and battery life

The power consumption is 4.8 Watts, while battery life is approximately 4 hours.

Types

Seven different options cover all the possible situations. Notwithstanding the price of this device is rather low, the result is valid and the general quality is good.

  • Room
  • Plate
  • Hall
  • Church
  • Gated
  • Reverse
  • Spring

Conclusions

First of all let's consider the low price. Considering this, it is a good product. Few controls make it easy to use, and seven different reverbs make it capable to produce a good effect for every context. My opinion is that Room is the best. Much natural. Gated is valid too. Sure, it is a digital device, so if you want a warm sound this is not the product for you. The bypass produces a little sound degradation. It is silent. My opinion is that if you are looking for a reverb just to give more life to your sound and you dont want to spend so much, the DigiVerb can be a good choice.

  • Floorboards | Zoom
    G7.1ut

    An excellent product at a very good price. It features a 12AX7 tube for the sound generation and a modern 32-bit chip. The display is rather small, but all is clear and immediately available on the front panel.

  • Corona
  • Chorus | TC Electronic
    Corona

    The selector for the Chorus type makes it flexible and versatile in many different contexts. The switch under the battery cover can be used to select 2 bypass types: true and buffered. Certainly, a quality pedal. TonePrints are an important added value.

  • VE-5
  • Vocal | Boss
    VE-5

    An interesting Boss product that can work with 4 batteries. It has been designed to be fast and easy to use. The result is valid. The built-in looper could be interesting, but it has too many limits, and loops cannot be stored.
