Sound — 10
Low distortion has nearly no noise or feedback, high distortion has some noise.Vary cool bluesy tone with the tone a little before 1/2 way and the distortion all the way up. Cool rock tone too that way also. Not to good for metal or palm-muting. Still try it before buying it.
Overall Impression — 10
This is a great pedal for blues and some classic rock for under $50 bucks. Good idea you check it out online or try it in a music store before you buy it. BEWARE: the output jack is wareing out on mine but is a easy fix for me. If someone stole it I would replace it.
Reliability & Durability — 10
Rigged construction. It's made thick out of aluminum every ware except the bottom. I don't think you should be kicking it or jumping on it like your putting out a fire ether. You probably can throw it down a flight of stares and I will be in one-piece. I am not recommending you do so at all.
Ease of Use — 9
Pretty easy to get good sound out of it. If you detune your guitar it sounds very funky. It sounds great with a bass or 6-string. If you can't figure out to use the knobs tone & dis. The manual describes how to use the knobs and has diagrams on different settings for that sort of thing. Has long battery life too.
