Sound — 9
I use it with my Marshall amp and American Fender Strat it sounds amazing you do get some noise with the siglecoils but thats where the noise gate comes in handy the effects all sound good to me apart from that a few are better than others. I can get that Chili Peppers sound easily with this so overall a great sound.
Overall Impression — 10
I play lots of rock stuff and this Machine can pull off pretty much any type of music. I am fully satisfied with the product and if it were stolen again then I would buy the same one even if I could afford the GT8 because of the ME-50'S ease of use.
Reliability & Durability — 9
I can deffinitley depend on this Machine because it is made as solid as they come. Not like any Zoom or DigiTech stuff that's made of cheap plastic. In fact if there was a nuclear war the only things left on the earth would be Cockroaches and Boss products.
Ease of Use — 10
The ease of use is the best thing about this Machine. It has no complicated menues and its just like using a row of stomp boxes. It is easy to make new patches but I don't really use them because you don't need to when the effects are so easy to use without them. I've only browsed the manual but it looks good to me.
