Sound — 9
The sounds are luvely, the 3 main types of effects are overdrive/distortion with sounds like the Marshall guv'nor, rat, tubescreamer, facefuzz, big muff(I laughed my head off when I say that the first time) and the other normall Boss overdirve/distortion pedals. There is also a modulation patch, with 3 different types of chorus, flanger, phaser, rotary, uni-v, tremelo, vibrato, pan and harmonist. There is also ad delay patch with loads of different delays. There is another small patch which modify's the tone of the guitar to make it sound acoustic or hav a boost in low frequencies ect. The expression pedal is great it is used as a Cry Baby Wah, resonance, ring modulation, voice, up 1 octave and down 1 octave. The only bad thing I can think of is using the Wah pedal with a sh*t load of distortion will not be very good, you will barely hear the Wah.
Overall Impression — 9
brilliant bit of kit, I love it, I play mostly led zeppelin style stuff and a bit of Pink Floyd, but on those days when the naybour has pissed you off its its fun to put it on full blown heavy metal sound with resonance, crank it up and play something like evil eye or crazy train. It can keeps you amused for hours. Hope you buy it, hav fun... Peace
Reliability & Durability — 10
built like a brick sh*thouse, enough said, nothing can damage this thing, its made from a tough metal that is absolutely brilliant for when somebody in the audience starts moaning at you, on the subject I also recomend a Line 6 tonecore pedal, its like a brick, has came in handy many times
Ease of Use — 9
the ease of use is extremely simple, instead of a screen to look at n press loads of buttons or some mad box with 12 different sections that you can't get your head round like those Line 6 multi effects units. Its just a selections of turning knobs which you simply turn to acheive what model or sound you want, and then some knobs underneath thoses ones to tweak your settings.
