Sound — 8
I am using the pedal through my Behringer X V-AMP, Squier SP-10 amp and a Squier Bullet Strat. It gets noisy when the Level is too high on the pedal and the Bridge or Neck pickup is selected on the guitar. I play RHCP, John Frusciante, Blink 182, +44 and some others and I don't have any problems getting those sounds.
Overall Impression — 8
I play mainly just rock and the UD100 does well. I've been playing for about 4 years, own a Squier Bullet Strat and SP-10 practice amp, without the pedal and my X-VAMP the SP-10 amp isn't worth owning. If it were stolen I would probably save up and get a DS-1 or DS-2. It is a good pedal for beginners to intermediate players but if you want the pro tone save your pennies and get a DS-1.
Reliability & Durability — 7
The pedal is quite durable even considering it is made of plastic. I have played 1 or 2 gigs with it and it did the job quite well. I would much rather prefer using it as a backup though. The only real fault with it is that it really chews up the 9V batteries. Other than that it is well made.
Ease of Use — 9
The unit is quite easy to use, you can get a wide range of sounds from it but it doesn't cope too well with Metal kind of sounds. The manual was pretty much non-existent but there is only 3 dials, level, tone, drive, and it is pretty easy to get a decent sound.
