This pedal rules. I am just beginning to play guitar and wanted something that would pair well with my small practice amp. This sounds great!!!!
The only thing I wasn’t aware of initially is that it doesn’t come with an AC power adapter and there is no option to add a battery. Would be nice if one was included at a nominal fee. These are things that are an oversight to people who are just beginning to play guitar. Human tested , kitten approved.
Well built. Powerful 80s distortion.
This is a beautiful pedal. All three modes are unique and great sounding - the tone at noon provides a pretty transparent dirt, with the top one being a bit less compressed and more grungy, and the bottom one more saturated, like a Marshall amp. The middle one is similar to the Marshall but with more present mids - it is the "tighter" because of that, but I prefer to Eq down the chain. The only fault is that at *very* high gain it is a bit noisier than other circuits with similar gain. But I think this pedal shines with gain between 9pm and noon, and can be used outside of that in both directions as well. It stacks *very* well with other pedals. I use it to drive a metal pedal at low gain, and I drive it with rat/klon/timmy style pedals, maybe all stacked on top of each other, and it works like a champ and adds some saturation and nice tone. I love this thing. Did I mention it is inexpensive? With three distinct modes it is a steal. It can definitely be your only distortion on a good pedal board.
The tone switch is good for helping swap and make it the sound you want, I do get volume jumps when I turn up the gain. Overall a great pedal.
I've tried many octave pedals and this is the best for me so far. Great price too. I highly recommended.
Very good, prompt service. Good customer service
Best Distortion for the money ever! Just ordered another too try.
good product. Just remember to buy the power supply for energy.
I like the 80s sound that this pedal gives.
I'm real happy with the way it works and especially with the way it sounds thank you.
I am extremely satified with the products I purchased from Donner as well as the shipping protocols. A great experience all around.
good distortion unit, especially for the price.
it sounds realy good and you can use tones from overdrive to distortion. the only thing i dont like is when you roll the tone control to the left you lose too much definition and becomes mudy, but this pedal will stay in my pedal board, love it!
This pedal offers great smooth high gain distortion. I use it with the gain at about 10:00-11:00 for worship guitar lead riffs. With the gain at about 3:00 and higher You can get that chuggy metal sound if that's what you're looking for. I'm 100% satisfied with my purchase and would recommend it for sure, especially for the money.
Very nice addition so far. Will update after a few months of use. Works as intended and good quality. Only thing I don't like is I had to buy power supply for $15.
great price, great value. always get what I bought very timely..
This pedal cleans up real nice one the low gain settings and then smacks you in the face with the high gains (In a good way lol). the tone has a fairly wide range aswell. The only con I've noticed is when you get above about 3 o clock on the gain, it starts getting noise in it. My multi effects pedal has a noise gate in it so it's not a huge deal, but something to be mindful of. I use it with the gain at about 10:00-11:00 most of the time and stack an overdrive for when I need to cut through the mix. Overall, great value for the money!
Hört sich richtig gut an das Teil. Über die unterschiedlichen Regler lässt sich ein weites Soundspektrum abdecken. Bin wirklich zufrieden.
Solid pedal, well built and most importantly it sounds very good. It took me a little while to dial it in but when I did it was quite satisfying. I'm mainly using it for a lower gain sound but still with a good amount of sustain and it fills a niche nicely for what I'm looking for tonewise. It's got a ton of gain on tap too if that's what you are looking for. Pretty versatile little pedal for the money.
Great sound. My daughter loves it.
Awesome little pedal. Tons of attitude and character, offers a wide variety of sounds and pairs great with other distortion and overdrive pedals. Would highly recommend!
Just got this and i'm real impressed. It's phenomenal for 80's metal/rock. More than enough gain and it has a lot more string clarity than i expected (not muddy). I own a lot of dirt pedals and this is easily my favorite one at this price point and size.
Very loud. I've been sick so I could barely try it out. I need to balance out the sound level with my clean tone. But I think it's a good pedal.
Super straightforward and solid sounding. sounds great through my Orange amp!

It’s compact and it sounds great!
It's a great pedal for punk or anything agressive . I have my toggle set on classic on the pedal. It has the most bite of the three positions. I was jamming along with a Nirvana tune called School and it sounded very close to that tone. This pedals gives you a very dirty tone and feedback. A slight fuzz quality also but much more of a distortion pedal. The pedal is a one trick pony but it does hard grungy , punk and Black Sabbath tones very well. I bought directly for the purpose of playing Ramones , Black Flag , Nirvana , Misfits , Black Sabbath , Offspring covers . The tone fits well into that type of music while you still stand apart. The notes are very clear and distorted at the same time. It's definitely worth it , it will reside on my pedalboard for sure . People say it's a Sure Riot clone. I'm note sure , never tried one. All I know is the pedals lays out some killer , monster , nasty tone. To me it's not for 80's or glam metal. I'm not sure why it's said to be. I use my Donner Giant Metal for that and any other kind of metal. This is strictly a punk rock type pedal , maybe you can do old hard rock with it too like Rush , UFO and stuff. I don't at much in that genre to say but it would likely do the job depending on how you set it.
Great sound in this little distortion box plenty of room to get that tone you want .
Cool general high gain digital distortion pedal. Best way I can describe it is that its very reminiscent of modern common combo amp distortion tones but with the ability to turn the gain up to 11 or 12. With that being the case I would recommend this for anyone stuck with a combo amp that doesn't support a channel footswitch since it can be made to sound similar to the onboard distortion channel on your nicer budget combo amps.
From booming bottom-end lows, chunky mids to screaming highs, Donner's Morpher Distortion is a winner. The gain control is quite aggressive, ranging from shimmering 80s arena rock to the heaviest of today's metal punch, and when paired with the three-position toggle switch, is capable of producing a wide variety of in-betweens. Definitely made for a heavier sound, the pedal's versatility, simple design, and the solid construction Donner is known for, make the Morpher a solid hit for almost any player.
Buen precio y buena calidad ¡¡
Great pedal! Exactly what I was expecting. A good distortion pedal that isn’t quiet as heavy as some others, so it adds some nice variety to my board. Plus can’t beat the price! This was my first Donner mini pedal, and I will definitely be looking at buying more.
A fantastic pedal to start out with.
This is a nice distortion pedal with a bit more gain than your typical overdrive. Some nice switch-selectable options. Good construction, feels like it will last. Nice solid performance!
I just returned a high end boutique pedal for this Morper Yes the boutique sounds better and is built better but honestly not for an extra $ 200 bucks better ! This Morpher pedal get 5 stars for the price and what it does, and taking up less real estate , If any thing happens in the future like it stops working out of nowhere I will update my review but until then, its staying on my pedal board.
I would love to share a photo or tell you more about my pedal but unfortunately I have still not received it yet? I received the 1st pedal but not the 2nd pedal they were both on the same order?
i like that les paul sounds good thru it. i think just about anything would soud good thru it. this is 3rd Donner pedal purchased. all three compliment each other.
It does what it should nice addition to my collection
I love the crunch that this pedal delivers Great for hard rock & metal!!!! The only issue is when I use the Jet convolution Flanger W/the Distortion pedal. When I do that the the Distortion pedal goes into screech mode????
Came packaged great , and prompt delivery, sounds great , excellent product

I do not know a thing about playin guitar, but this pedal is exactly what I wanted.
After using the Boss DS-1 distortion pedal for the last 25 years, I replaced it with this much louder and more versatile pedal. It’s about half the size and can only be powered by A/C adapter (not included), but if you’re sick of the muddy, low-volume DS-1, this is a great replacement for the price.
Pros: -built like a rock -great customer service -small and portable -sounds good when put on the right amp settings -fairly quiet Cons (you can't complain, it costs less than 50$): -doesn't sound incredible on it's own -gain doesn't go super high Overall, it's a pretty solid pedal. I love to plug it into a fender drive channel to get some crunchy 1967 cream-type sounds. Definitely recommend.
I added a Donner Morpher and a Dynamic Wah to my pedalboard setup, which had very limited space! the pedals are the perfect size, good, solid construction, and the sound is exactly what I was hoping it would be!
Sounds huge in such itty bitty unit. Already has the sound I need.
I really like this pedal. It has a sound of its own.
Good value for money. Much better gain/distortion than my beginner amp.
Definitely one of my favorite pedals I’ve owned, not only is it aesthetically pleasing, but the sound it helps produce is competitive towards “high end” pedals. Definitely will be buying more !
It’s a great little pedal for the money! Great for garage band practice.
This pedal has a great boosted feel with versatility of a volume in the clean tones. A plus is the size as well very small but very clean.
This little pedal is great for the money! It's got a pretty wide range of overdrive and can get down right crunchy. Play with the levels to find different sounds, but I love this thing!
Awesome, especially for the price. I recommend to new and intermediate guitarists.
Works perfect! The quality of this pedal is awesome, it does exactly what I need it to without any issues
Great sound for the price. Only drawback is that it doesn’t come with a power supply.
Better than I expected for the price. lot of fun to play around with.
Bought as a gift for my son in law. He loved it. Says it’s exactly what he was looking for.
Its small but has a good sound especially for the cost. I use it to add a little strength and some dirtyness to my sound. Once you dial it in you can create a tone youll like.
Adds a new dimension to my son’s playing!
Good clean sound. Easy to setup and use. Easy to connect. You will need to have power adapter to get use of the pedal.
Compact and easy to use
Honestly people crack me up ... if your amp sucks .. what do you think your pedal will sound like.. I have a celestial style tube .. and all my pedals are max 30 dollars and my stuff sounds unbelievable ... seriously pedal companies have been screwing people for years with pedals that cost ten times what they should cost it is a shame .. this is a nice pedal
Pretty good little pedal
Great little pedal. Classic Rock High Gain! What’s not to Love.
Bought for my son. He loves it. Sounds really good.
Works great, love the sound it makes
It's small but I think it's a great size for the area I have for practicing. The distortion it gives is exactly what I was looking for.
Okay, This little thing is, Amazing!!! I was just looking through Amazon for Guitar strings, and Came across this. So I bought it. I couldn't wait until the next day. So I got it, and hooked it up. And I had my Guitar volume set on 2. I turned everything on the amp to 5, all knobs. And the Donner Morpher hooked in. I hit the strings, And I Could not Believe the Power. I mean Real Cutting Power. If you have a Electric Guitar with just a amp. Believe me. You will not believe how much better the sound is. How Donner can sell something like this for like $35.00. Also I hooked it up to my small box amp, it was Unreal. I'm no Expert at all. But I can work the neck, if you see the picture of my Guitar, And Yes this is a 1957 Gibson Les Paul with the Roaring P 90 pickups. Only 301 were made in 1957 with the P 90 pickups, and one was a Left hander. I will write a Very good report on Amazon. I will be buying something to go along with the Morpher, But I don't know what? Thank you very much. Reggie Jarrett
Some good fuzz here! Nice sounding both for mild and heavy distortion.
It was a gateway pedal for me. Got me into pedals
Good quality. Great value for money
It works. No complaints
Solid piece, tones from overdrive to near fuzz sounds.
I adore this pedal! I've been playing guitar for 20 years and just recently got into 80s style shredding for fun. I needed a distortion pedal to sculpt the right tone & dynamics, and this little guy delivered. My overdrive pedals weren't enough, & I wasn't quite getting the goods from dirty amp settings. Paired with a compressor this makes pinch harmonics soar! I'm like a kid who can't stop popping the squealies! You can get a decent range of distortion sounds that are great for 80s style pop rock solos & grit. I play mainly humbuckers & P90s. This pedal can get noisy on my tube amps, and that's common with distortion. I'm using a Decimator II G String with it to gate/wipe the noise. As soon as I got it I set up a quick mini board with it, and I've been having a blast with it. It allows me to easily get sounds & dynamics I was working hard to get before.
I'm very happy with my purchase of this pedal. It serves my needs very well.
Nice smooth distortion and stacks nicely with a drive before it
I saw some less than flattering reviews while deciding whether or not to buy it, but I realized long ago that not every guitarist is looking for the same thing, play the same or have the same equipment. I bought it and it gave me a different tone & sound . I absolutely love it because it gave me what I was looking for, I have 2 other distortion pedals that can't sound like this one. It's a small package but packs a huge wallop, it's diffinately a keeper for me. I was skeptical at first because of its size. But reviews are individual opinions by others guitarist that may play a totally different genre & style and doesn't necessarily reflect the usefulness of this pedal to others.
Connected to guitar system and works fine, no problems.
For 35 dollars you really can't get a better deal. It sounds great and has a fair few options that make nice, subtle changes to the sound. Really just a great little distortion pedal.
Donner pedals are my absolute favorite when it comes to value versus cost. The Morpher gives a nice, versatile distortion that isn’t too generic. Easily as good as a pedal almost 10x the price.
I have owned many guitar effects pedals representing several popular brands. I felt I was taking a chance with Donner. I purchased a few other Donner items and was fairly impressed so after reading many reviews and videos regarding this product, my hope was that this would also fall in line with what I was reading. I also had reduced space and wanted to minimize my effects track. As soon as I plugged in this small pedal, I was impressed. There is a variety of effects in the range this pedal presents. If for some reason this pedal would die, I would certainly purchase it again. Don't think that because of its small size and low price tag, there's a small sound and shortness of quality. Not the case here. You won't go wrong with this pedal. I now own several Donner products and am not disappointed.

Exactly what I needed to play my electric guitar in my small home.
Well built pedal, with a small footprint. Looks and sounds great.
Good for the price and overall quality of product. You will need two wires to access the amp.
Nice compact, decent sound for the price. good product for beginners and once and awhile players..
It does what you expect it does. Sounds really good for how much it costs.
Great product. Small and compact!
I haven’t played the Suhr Riot, so I can’t compare. I’m playing into a Princeton Reverb, and the sound was a little thin for my tastes vs other distortion pedals I own.
Works perfectly. Light and mobile.
This is a good little fuzz box for the money. It does what I need it to do.
Love this pedal. Great sound for the price and works amazing.
Has a decent sound and good distortion. Great value for money.
Compact with a punch. Pairs well with Blues Driver. Great little pedal.
Great value for the money. My son loves it!
The compact pedal brings a really good distortion. Sounds good with chorus pedals
My son loved it.
Liked how small the unit was but with a big, thick sound. Has true bypass technology also. Awesome pedal for the money.
