We proudly announce our newest PCB inspired by that Digitech pedal you never cared about!
Renamed by you guys as Grumpy Capuching, this Bad Monkey Overdrive-inspired pedal is ready to jam.
Nobody was paying too much attention to the Bad Monkey Overdrive, a Chinese-made DigiTech pedal from the early 2000s. It was one of those overdrives that go under the radar that, at the time, you could easily buy it used for $60.
That changed when Josh Scott uploaded a video in early 2023 showing that this two-decade-old pedal could sound just as good as the mythical Klon Centaur and similar circuits valued over three and even four figures.
As soon as the JHS video hit the scene, the Bad Monkey went from zero to hero. Suddenly, everyone wanted a piece of this discontinued pedal, and the asking prices went bonkers. Some folks had the audacity to slap price tags of 600, 700, and even over a grand on these pedals. Madness!
We think Scott had a message to deliver, loud and clear. Forget the hype and trust your own ears and instincts when it comes to pedals. At the end of the day, it’s all about what brings you joy while jamming. Isn’t that the whole point, anyway? That’s why we bring you a DIY version of this Bad boy, which is a great pedal, after all. This Grumpy Capuching is primed and ready to jam!
