Perfect, even my unbranded Strat sounds good. The noise gate eradicates all unwanted noise, so thats not a problem. The expression pedal can be used to control wah wah, volume, gain and effect intensity. All effects are brilliant, and there is a great variety of amp simulations, including an acoustic one and a bypass option. Just for the fun of it, I'm gonna write down all the effects this has: volume, noise gate, gain, wah wah, auto wah, p-funkn, pitch bend (think Seven Nation Army) rotary, phaser, flanger, tremolo, chorus, reverb, delay. Each with near endless different possibilities. I can get everything I wanted from this, Kurt Cobain, Jack White, Josh Homme, Slash, Brad Delson, Jimmy Page. Also has a chromatic tuner.

Overall Impression — 10
Perfect, and amazing value. Stolen? Buy another one! I honestly don't know how something this could can be so cheap. I tried out the similiar DigiTech and Zoom models, but this has them licked hands(or paws) down. Also tried a fancier, much pricier Korg model, but just could not justify the 200 difference.

Reliability & Durability — 9
Only possible weakness is the plastic pedals, and even they seem solid enough.

Ease of Use — 10
Wow, a monkey could use this. And it couldn't, the manual couldn't possibly be clearer. Only one problem, the manual only comes in human languages.
