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
    A2

    An excellent multi-effects for the acoustic guitar. 24-bit and 96kHz, the 32-bit ZFX-3 chip and an advanced technology in emulation produce a very valid sound and allow a good flexibility.

  • ML-2 Metal Core
  • Distortion | Boss
    ML-2 Metal Core

    If you are looking for something that makes your sound powerful and with a great attack, the Boss ML-2 is the distortion pedal for you. It will create a great lows emphasis and a sharp attack.

  • RC-300
  • Loop | Boss
    RC-300

    Compared with the RC-50, the front panel is more simple, less confused. All the elements are arranged in an intuitive order and everything is clear and immediate. The level of each track can be regulated with a fader. XLR with Phantom Power.
