Sound — 9
From the sweetest clean sound to destructive rectefier... I play things like, Foo Fighters, Metallica, Neil Young, BB King, Hendrix and Van Halen, and yes... They're all in this little box. It's got a noice surpressor so if you got noisy pickups, you'll be fine with it... It also has a preamp wich I not use by the way, but it's got some nice sounding presets... Using them seperate as stompboxes allow you to combine your own amp settings with the ME-70, 'cause when you really like your distortion sound but you only need flanger or something, just use flanger! You can also use your own amp's effects to create massive delays or double chorus... But don't, never, I mean not ever combine distortion... It will make a noise that even scares you!
Overall Impression — 8
At first, it looked like knobs... I was actualy only planning to get a Whammy pedal, but my parents gave this instead *birthsday present*. I thought by myself: damn... How can one man possibly understand this... And yes I did! I figured this thing out in less than 25 minutes and believe me, you will to! The very same day I showed it to my friends, and they were thinking of buying it to... Once you get to know eachother better, you're gonna depend on eachother and that's what happened to me! It's got killer effects, sweet distortions and an expression pedal for all sorts of things. If this thing get's stolen *no it will not break* I'll find the one Who stole it and kill him... Or buy a new one, that's an option to.
Reliability & Durability — 10
If you can depend on it? Well, see for yourself, but I certainly can... No serious, it's great and'll never break... Unless an atomic bomb goes off, maybe it'll get some scratches than you can kill someone with it just by throwing it to the other... Though it's very light and yes! I can go gig with this thing without using backup... And I'm sure I will.
Ease of Use — 9
It's deffenitly easy to use, every idiot could figure how to get every possible guitar sound out of this thing... Creating you own pathces? No problem at all, just be sure you read the manual carfully ok? Than it should be fine and you'll be able to use it the very same day you purchased it...
