The Digitech X Series DigiVerb is a digital reverb pedal designed for use with electric guitar. It has a ¼ inch input as well as two ¼ inch outputs and is powered by the power supply that is designed for it. The pedal is not rack mountable as it is a foot pedal.

UTILIZATION

Using the Digitech DigiVerb isn’t hard at all as it only has four different knobs. It has seven different modes to choose from including room, plate, hall, church, gated, reverse, and spring, which are pretty much the basic types of reverb that you expect to see on any reverb unit. It then has parameters in the form of knobs for level, EQ (tone), and decay. While this may seem somewhat limited, there is really enough tone control available because of all of the different types of modes. You don’t need the manual for the Digitech DigiVerb because of its user friendly make up, but I’ve never seen the manual and can’t speak to how thorough it is.

SOUND QUALITY

The sounds on the Digitech DigiVerb are sub par for the most in my opinion. While I like a few of the modes, namely the plate and reverse settings, I find that most of the sounds I get with this come off too tinny and digital sounding for my taste. This being said, the sounds are usable and while they aren’t always professional sounding this pedal is perfect for the player who wants to get into using reverb and wants to figure out what types of reverb suit their sound and style the best.

OVERALL OPINION

I’ve been using the Digitech DigiVerb for about two years and I can’t say that I really recommend it to anyone other than beginners. While the sound quality isn’t terrible, it isn’t professional by any stretch and I don’t believe this pedal is suitable for recording or any type because of this. I would recommend it to those new with reverb effects who wants to get a cheap reverb pedal to try out different types. The price of the Digitech DigiVerb makes it a viable option for beginners and I believe that is the realm where this pedal belongs.
