Sound — 10
I use a Behringer GM108 and a cheap copy of a Strat. It sounds great. I've tried it with a Richwood LP and it sounded better so if you have a Gibson/Fender/Ibanez etc, it will sound excellent. I tend to use Overdrive more then distortion. I love the Overdrive on it, you can have a bit of both (distortion + Overdrive) which would work well if you play metal etc. I play Green Day/Blink 182, the Overdrive suits them very well. The Overall sound is impressive.
Overall Impression — 7
I was impressed with the sound of the product. If it was lost I wouldn't buy another one. I've only been playing since March 05 so I got this as a starter pedal as I am getting pretty good now I'm looking for a Multi FX. I love the Overdrive on it, it's very impressive for the price. It's a great pedal for a beginner and any advanced player.
Reliability & Durability — 6
I would use it at a gig but would be careful, as the structure is plastic, but it would be fine. The only problem with it is that batteries wont work, it may be a loose connection though (easily fixed) I haven't looked, but I works fine with a 9V adaptor which I recommend for home use, it's eats up batteries quickly as all things do.
Ease of Use — 8
It is easy to use, to swap to Overdrive or distortion just requires turning the knob left or right, it's the same with volume and tone control. The only weird thing I found about it is when you try and change the battery. It's got an unusual locking system which can be a bit of a pain in the neck.
