Static, but good

I use the Gunslinger as my 'static' distortion, that is, I rely on the fact that the part sounds almost equal to every amp and behind each overdrive.

Optics / Haptics:
Very beautiful, brushed metal look. The underside is powder coated black. You can find it as you want, but you do not see the bottom anyway.
The blue LED indicates the operating state clearly, without glare.
The controls are easy to operate. The rotary resistor could be a bit bigger, but it is not much smaller than with all my other pedals.

The Gunslinger is indeed not very dynamic in terms of the response to the pick attack, but the volume control is a little tweaked. I have several overdrives that can make the dynamic sound very good, so I was looking for such a static sound. It does not always go on the stage like in the rehearsal and in the living room, and it is not bad to have a pedal on which you can rely 100%.

The sound is hard, heavily compressed, slightly cold and great with single coils and humbuckers. Since I find it necessary to describe a sound with words, I recommend, for a few impressions simply times youtube or the Digitech Soundcloud side to strive.

The EQ allows some variation, but for my feeling is too strong. Unfortunately, you sound very fast like an old radio (which is cool, but a little more game I already wanted). Also it goes for my taste a bit strongly to the volume, so you always have to adjust with the somewhat fiddeligen volume regulator.

Works unbreakable. Jacks and DC plugs snap in cleanly and firmly. The click of the switch is a bit hard, but very clear and anything but a humpy. I have no doubts about the robustness of the switch.

I am fully satisfied. The Gunslinger does what he is supposed to do and provides for a harder, more compressed sound in the corresponding passages. I do not need to be afraid that this tread will not be able to survive the day.

Enormous - replaces my guitar preamp

Nikolaus B., 05.09.2015
I have two tube precursors in my rack. One of them (Engl 530) I wanted to replace because of lack of space by a pedal. I went to work and watched youtube videos for hours. Distortion pedals are like sand at the sea. I loved with brands like Lovepedal, JHS, Fulltone, Kingsley etc. So the boutique faction.

By chance, I saw the new release of Digitech DOD-Pedals by Andy from the Pro Guitar Shop and Sweetwater Sound. The demo of Andy impressed me. I now faced the choice, either JHS Angry Charly (did not Thomann) or DOD Gunslinger. Since the DOD cost less than half, I thought, I try the first time.
OK then. Because it really sounds as good as on the demo of Andy. I placed it before my 4-channel tube preamp. So I make from the second clean channel an inflated 80s heavy sound of the first quality. It could hardly be more different at the push of a button: from the typical Fender Clean sound, very brilliant, brutally dynamic with little midsels on a fat classic rock sound. The extremely effective sound control of the DOD is very helpful. Because only with it I could combine the extremely different sounds in one channel.

The DOD Gunslinger sounds really fatter than my Engl 530, madness! Very similar tubes (I hear no difference and I have loud tube amplifiers), finely resolved, no crumbling, not rough, very dense and powerful. With gain without end. Depending on the taste, the volume control with little gain can be used to inflate the front end of the tube amplifier and the tubes into the saturation, or the volume regulator can only be easily turned on and use the full pedal of the pedal with the control knob turned up. Both sounds different.
The Gunslinger is one of the few distortion pedals, which finally do not sound so central (such as all TubeScreamer pedals) and the bass thinning.

Conclusion: A fantastic pedal which will all love the tube-typical high-gain hard rock. It can certainly also metal very well, thanks to the sound control, but it is not thought of.
