Purchased from: Local Music Store

Sound — 6
The sound of this pedal is not that good without a slight touch of a noise filtering pedal when on OD/Boost mode. I recommend buying this pedal only after you have been playing for at least a year, because if you don't know how to mute the unwanted sounds or the "hum" the Wah pedal makes when on Boost mode, you'll sound sloppy and undefined.

Overall Impression — 8
For anybody who doesn't know anything about how (AND WHEN!) to use a Wah pedal, you just can't use it in riffs. If you play hard rock/metal, then use it only in solos and maybe some verses? If you play blues/funk/rock'n'roll, then use it everytime you want and if you play country/heavy metal riffing/jazz DO NOT USE THE Wah OR YOU'LL RUIN THE SONG.

Reliability & Durability — 10
As I can feel it, it seems quite hard and durable. It is hard to brake and even to scratch and the quality of the materials used on it surprises me because Behringer doesn't make the most durable equipment in the world. The bottom part of the pedal is made of hard, thick steel and the part which contacts your foot is made of a VERY thick layer of rubber, as like as on the sides. So it doesn't matter how hard you kick it, because the only thing that will take damage will be yourself.

Ease of Use — 8
The Hellbabe is a good sounding pedal for the price, has a Q setting (used to make the modulations sound like the human voice), a fine tuning button and the button that controls the amount of the boost it's being outputed (works only when you have your boost/OD switch on).
