Price paid: $ 46.62

Purchased from: Shop

Ease of Use: It's very easy to get a good sound from this effect. Only thing zou must to do it, is turn the knobs to level, drive and 2 EQ knobs, and then select the amp simulation which you want. You can quickly use something about 27 combination just turn 4 modes selections knobs. Manual is not in purchase. You can revisted the model no. and revision no. and also product code. // 8

Sound: This efffect is just copy of very famous and good simulatuon effect: SansAmp 21. You have 3 models of amps: calif (Mesa Boogie), brit (Marshall), and twed (Fender), then 3 modes: clean, hi gain, hot. Aslo is there a simulation of microphone front of the cabinet: off axis, center, classic. The knobs are: drive, trebble, bass, level. Volume is good, the best volume and drive is about half of knobs. It's very good in all combination, such good to rock/metal music. // 8

Reliability & Durability: The guitarist can depend on it. In garage, in stage in gig, in studio. It have in, output and also XLR ballanced output to mix or PA with simulation of 412 cabinet. This is very good for studio's operation and recording to PC also. This simulation isn't same good as Behringer Ultra-G DI box, but is good. I had it from november from this year and it's really strong, the contruction is much better then olders effect pedals from Behringer. // 8

Overall Impression: I play rock/metal, and for me and guitarist which play something like this very good effect for super price! The clean sounds (twed simulation with clean mode) is maybe worst as gain sound, but this is only one bad thing on this effect. I played it with LP Classic with Alnico pickups, and with 40W all-tube amp (one channel, 5 graphic EQ, master tone, master volume) with 2U12 cabinet loaded with Celestion repro and it's such awesome combination. Perfect sound! // 9
