Sound — 10
I am using this at the end of my effects chain, it goes guitar > Ibanez Weeping Demon Wah > DigiTech RP-500 Multi-Effects Processor > Behringer Vintage Tube Monster > BOSS FB2 > Kustom 12 Gauge Amp/HOTRODDED. The effect is strong at all times, and in all applications. I really don't want to sound like any other artist, as that isn't where I want to go musically.
Overall Impression — 9
I play most types of music, with leanings towards rock, blues, metal, and punk.This pedal works for them all. I have been playing about 30 years. I don't like the recovery time that it takes to get back to a natural tone, but I have found that I can use the recovery time to sustain my notation. But, any how it gets a 9, here. Yeah, if it was stolen I think I'd get another, I like what it does.
Reliability & Durability — 9
Looks like it'll stand up, like all Boss pedals, made, for the road. So it would seem to be reliable. I've only had it for a couple of days though, so I really don't know. Still and all, it seems okay to me.
Ease of Use — 10
This pedal is totally cool, it works with your amp, no matter what type, and/or other effects quite well. It's new so there's no review, yet. I saw the reviews that were posted on the M.F. website, and they weren't too encouraging, but I also saw the review that Paul Riario posted on the Guitar World website, and decided to buy it anyway. I was happily surprised! Total control over your feedback, and it will give you all the F. B. you need to color your compositions, even on a clean sounding amp, and AT ANY VOLUME. Wow, what a plus to my rig, and sound.
