Ease of Use: Very easy, just turn the response knob and you will get a more responsive sound either less or more, which ever you choose. There is a distortion and a clean switch for a more vocal like sound or a filtered fuzz, but very subtle. The manual is short and straight forward for getting a different sound with each setting. I do not know the number and my version has not been upgraded or updated. // 9

Sound: An Ibanez SWX 65 watt bass amp and a Ibanez IBZ10. Not on the larger amps but on smaller amps it is slightly noisy. Medium treble, three quarters bass and half middle and half volume. They always sound great and perfect and strong but not overwhelming. Yeah, Cliff Burton (Metallica) and I couldn't think of any others. The auto filter quality is very good and clear when activated. There is also a distortion switch. // 9

Reliability & Durability: Yes it is metal and very sturdy, quite the little pedal it is. Yes I wouldn't need backup or an extra pedal. Very easy and tough. Great pedal without a doubt what so ever. Best pedal for reliability from EHX. The pedal is very reliable and can be abused quite a bit. // 10

Overall Impression: Funk and Indie and Punk and a very good match. Almost a year, I also own an EHX Big Muff Pi, a DigiTech BP80, An Ibanez Soundgear, an Ibanez SWX 65, and a Ibanez IBZ10. No, this is a perfect match. Defiantly buy another. The small size, ease of use, and simplicity. Switch is placed to close to the knob and distortion switch. The sound and price. Nope. A "boost" switch for extra filter power. // 10
