Ease of Use: It's baby easy to use this pedal. Four knobs: 6-way sweep control range selector (to left of pedal), Response, Sensitivity and Q controls. Just fiddle around with it and you can get an infinity of tones. // 10
Sound: All my guitars (Strat, Les Paul, ES-335 type, SG) sound amazing with the pedal. Warm and clear tone on all settings. Electronics are crystal clean. // 10
Reliability & Durability: Looks rock solid. // 10
Impression: I play all kinds of style but am particularly fond of funk. I've tried every envelope filter there is! Moogerfoogers and MXR Vintage filters can just go suck their thumbs and cry in the dark in comparison to this baby! Plus it's got the bikini-clad effect goin' on with it, namely, that these girls descend from the heavens when you start getting the funk out with this amazing piece of electronic wizardry! Greg at Solid Gold must be a freakin' genius! He should get the Nobel Prize for guitar effects! Hands down!
Seriously, I've been on the tone Quest for quite a while and I believe this pedal is the Holy Grail of envelope filters! You won't be disappointed! Serious. // 10
