Price paid: $ 49

Purchased from: Musician's Friend

Sound — 10
I'm using an Ibanez SR300DX bass and an Ibanez Soundwave 100watt amp. I don't get any noise out of it unless I set it to the fretnoise setting that comes on the owners manual. The sound is always great. I can usually get the sound I want.

Overall Impression — 10
I play all kinds of music and this peadl is great for all kinds of music. I've only been playing 6 months. I also own the Squier P-Bass starter pack, Yamaha for the 80's (great tone and durability), Fender acoustic, Schecter Diamond series and an Aria acoustic. Nothing is wrong with the pedal. I wish it had more of a low growling sound so I could get the sound of Chris Squire or Jack Bruce.

Reliability & Durability — 8
This quality is great. The case is great. I would use it at a gig without a back-up for sure.

Ease of Use — 8
This pedal is hard to get the sound I want out of it. It's very confusing when you first get it. You kind of get the hang of it as you use it enough. Besides the settings this pedal is great, especially for the price paid.
