Sound — 8
I use this peadal through my semi-decent practice amp (peavy rage 158, 40 watt)with my 2 guitars (casino strat copy and samic hollowbody) and my bass (ashton ab400) and quite frankly it works great. For an idea of the exact sound you get out of this listen to the 'twangy' part from smells like teen spirit, hear that twang, thats this pedal. The downside of this pedal is that the range of sound is very small as there are not to many things you can adjust.

Overall Impression — 8
I love this pedal, it's nice and simple and sounds great. I play many styles of music and i can utalise this pedal in a lot of them. From acoustic-esque fingerpicking stuff to mega-distorted metal solos this adds a very nice, somthing, to the sound. On it's own the pedal isn't anything to great, but when run with a distortion, flanger, wah, delay and whatever other pedals you can get it's exelent. I peronaly prefer having many pedals as oposed to a multi-effects board as it is easier to switch between efects while playing, if your like that, get this pedal and you won't regret it. If you don't like the idea of a lot of pedals, go for a multi-efects type doovey is probably a much better (and cheeper) buy

Reliability & Durability — 10
This thing is rock solid, i've had it thrown at my head, it hit a brick wall, and worked fine straight after. Another plus is that the batterys last for AGES!, with lots of my other pedals they run out very fast, this one is... well magic i guess.

Ease of Use — 10
This pedal has an simple function, and is increadably simple to use. There are only 2 dials (rate and depth) to adjust to how you want... very very easy

    I have this pedal too and i love it cause it has an unique tone. But i'm sorry- Boss manufactures this pedal no longer. =(
    This pedal was discontinued in the 82! if you have one dont even think sell it, its a jewel!
