    Nope... not at all... I honestly have no clue what you're on about dude. The Bad Monkey is a killer little pedal for no money and it IS a tube screamer kind of sound. Just way better for me.

    There's been a miscommunication somewhere. The Bad Monkey is definitely not related to Korn. I don't think it's even been around that long. If the Korn guys use Tubescreamers, they'd be using the real things, given their association with Ibanez.

    Is there an echo in here? LOL. Nice to see you and I are on the same page in this regard.

    They did/do use some Digitech stuff. I saw Monkey's rig in the back of a Guitar World the other day, and there was definitely Digitech stuff, but since those Ibanez Tone-Lok pedals came out, they've been strongly associated with them.

    Anywho, bottom line is check out the Bad Monkey. It sounds nothing like Korn

    He spells his name 'Munky' and he has absolutely nothing to do with the design of this pedal.
    Actually, I have no idea where Digitech got the name- but these are just a few years old- not from the late 90s. It is probably the best pedal Digitech ever made, although my late 80s (?) DOD Stereo Turbo Chorus is pretty close.

    I used a TS7 for years, until I heard the Monkey.

    This should help you see the differences in the tubescreamers. Written by R.G. Keen, very wise. It's worth the read even if it's a bit over your head. Try the maxon 808 I thought they were cheaper that the ibanez reissues, I'm sure someone will correct me if that's wrong.

    Yep, great stuff there. R.G. know his stuff. He's a regular at diystompboxes.com.

    The Maxon 808 is actually more expensive than the Ibanez. Maxon used to make the Ibanez pedals.

    Is that the Malaysian 51508 JRC superchip or the Venezuelan? I've heard the Malaysian makes the better coffee, somewhat surprisingly. Plus, I can't use anything with fluxdiodes, they give me a rash.
