Excellent, if you dare.

04.03.2017
? Qualities: For those who, like me, missed the original DOD Gonkulator of 1996, here is a second chance to have this effect quite crazy, but still classic, since Tony Iommi (guitarist of Black Sabbath) already uses a ring modulator in 1970 during the solo of the famous "Paranoid".
I do not think you can be "musical" quickly with this pedal. The Gonkulator is one of those effects that you have to work to get the best. But it is immediately effective to create a special atmosphere at times.
As for the integrated distortion, and contrary to what is repeated on the Internet, it is not the DOD Grunge; It is much more powerful. The distortion of the Gonkulator brings an average gain and sounds rather good.

? Defects: this pedal is expensive, and still sold without instructions. It should be downloaded from the Digitech website. It is a lightweight pedal made of aluminum. She does not look very solid. It is a pity, but this detail does not deserve to be deprived.

Lonesome sounds, impractical controls

Uwe762, 18.02.2017
I use the gonkulator as a guitarist in an indie rock band. The freaky space sounds are not for the whole evening, but in the right place the ring modulator makes fun.
But I still have to get rid of two criticisms:
1. As soon as the ring modulator is activated, the radio frequency is heard. This is disturbing in game pauses. At first I thought the pedal was broken. But the replacement unit had the same noise. Therefore, I assume that this must be so.
2. There is unfortunately no Blend knob, with which one could add the original signal. That would be much more useful than the volume control. The volume can be adjusted anyway with the dist and ring controls (therefore only 2 stars).

The distortion unit I actually do not use. Sounds like Fuzz. At the point in the signal chain I can but unfortunately do not start.

For my taste, you could improve the pedal. But because there is relatively little comparable, I keep it.
As soon as there is an affordable analog ring modulator, which runs with 9 V and is so compact and has a blend controller, I will separate from the gonkulator.
Until then, I enjoy my really cool multi-voice chaos sounds and get on my nerves with my bandmates.
