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.

    If you play classic Rock or Blues, it is for you. It can really recreate the typical atmospheres of the '70s. An important thing is that exist many different versions, depending on the used chip.

    It provides four controls: Level, Low, High and Gain. A quality sound, warm and pleasant. Very quiet and with an excellent price. Perfect for the Blues. It can also warm a clean sound by adding a good Crunch.

  • Loop | Digitech

    Thanks to the use of a Compact Flash card it can store up to 6 hours of audio. This looper isn't a cheap product, but the quality costs, and all the necessary for a good work is present. It is equipped with the USB.
