Sound — 10
I use an Ibanez SA220FM through a Marshall MG50DFX and with the high, mid and low controls on my amps clean channel with the pedals high and low controls, there is endless possabilies with settings. This pedal is suprisingly quite, I'd expect atlest a little bit of noise but it very quite untill you pull out a big chunky chord. I listen to bands like B.M.F.V, Trivium and Atreyu aswell as bands like Children Of Bodom, In Flames and Parkway Drive and I can get pretty decent sounds for all of the bands. The distortion on this pedal is insane.
Overall Impression — 10
This is definately the best metal amp I've ever come across. I've been playing for 5 years now and played some of my mates other distortion pedals and most of them don't even compare to this one. I got this becasue the shop guy recomended it as the best distortion pedal he had in the store. The thing I like about this pedal is just how much distortion it has, I'm kind of an addict and this pedal just goes way past anything I've ever played. I'd defs get it agen if I lost it because it's just such a good pedal. Also the simplicity of it is pretty exicting for me, I had complitcated pedals with too many buttons and nobs that are just there for show.
Reliability & Durability — 9
As I mentioned before, this pedal is indestructable. I've had it for a while and I abuse it so much yet it still sounds good as new. I'd definately depend on it at a gig without a back-up as long as I had the power supply although it does relativly well without it. Stomp on this as hard as you can and I bet you can't break it.
Ease of Use — 10
This beast of an amp includes 4 nobs. Level, High, Low and Dist. With just these 4 nobs, I can get basically any metal sound I want. it's got a good battery life although I'd recomend buying the power pack and it's practially indesructable. it's easy to press down and the nobs turn quite easily to get that perfect amount. There are so many different sounds you can get out of this, it's hard to not find a good sound.
