Sound — 8
The sound of it can vary greatly, as just a minor adjustment can produce a completely different effect. It's crazy. I normally set it on envelope filter, although I also use the octa-sub, which is better than the one on my Crate BT50 amp. In general the sound quality is good, although too much of any one setting can get obnoxious. I normally lower the sensitivity.
Overall Impression — 9
I normally play music by the Offspring and similar bands, although I play some other stuff, and I find that I usually don't need it. I bought it as more of a novelty item to just mess around with. One problem with it it doesn't live up to the "wah" part of it's name, as there is in fact, not a wah setting. All in all it is a pretty good pedal, though I really don't need it.
Reliability & Durability — 9
It is pretty dependable, although I would not trust it with batteries. This pedal sucks the juice out of them like a three year old and apple juice. The design of it is pretty rugged, and seams like it could take a beating or two. I would use this in a gig provided I used an AC converter with it (which costs about an extra $20.00).
Ease of Use — 8
It is pretty easy to use, even changing batteries is a zip. Although one problem I've found is that there are so many different sounds that is a little demoralizing. I would recommend that a buyer read the instruction manual for this pedal, because at times it can get confusing. The manual shows that this bad boy has a couple of goodies like a "stack mode" if you are recording with a mixer.
