Well... I had to pull the initial review to put in my update. Also, take into account this is all IMO...
At low volume the DG-1 and P2 are almost indistinguishable. In my lower watt amp, the DG-1 is all I could ever need in a muff type pedal. In the bigger rig... I prefer the P2. I found the DG-1 is a looser sounding fuzz, which is not a bad thing, just different. Where the P2 excels is how silent it is even at max gain. The DG-1 stays pretty quiet up to about the last 25% of the gain knob where it becomes obvious that it is on. Note separation, I find the P2 more articulate.
In it's own class the DG-1 is one of the better that I have tried, but the P2 is really in a class of it's own. That said, if I didn't own a P2, I would be glowing for the DG-1.
I would say the DG-1 is the middle weight contender, where the P2 is the heavy. Both good pedals, both best served by not comparing them to each other, but rather to the broader scope of Big Muff, which makes me wonder why the hell I'm writing this?
