Sound — 10
I am playing on a Dean ml xt through a Marshall MG30DFX. this thing is great, I love everything about it. I listen to artists like pantera, Sepultura, soulfly, Slayer and Metallica. I don't try to emulate my favorite artists tones or anything I try to work on my own sound and and with this thing it's sounding pretty good.
Overall Impression — 10
I play very heavy metal and this thing gives distortion up the arss. Any other pedal I have to crank the gain up to 10(or whatever the highest setting is), but on this thing I play with gain up a little over 3/4 of the way. I've been playing for about 2 1/2 years and I play on it with a Marshall MG30DFX(which is about to change) and a Dunlop crybaby wah. Other pedals have only tone volume and gain knob but this thing has your treble (high), bass (low), midrange and midrange frequency. If this was stolen I would go on a shooting rampage and if I absolutely couldnt find the guy I would break down and buy another one.
Reliability & Durability — 10
What do I say, it's a Boss. I don't think I would need a backup for this thing. Boss pedals are pretty much rock solid. I thought I was having a problem but come to find out it was just my 9v adaptor which I got rid of. It's all fine now. The adaptor has been replaced and I haven't had any problem with it yet.
Ease of Use — 10
Very easy to get a great sound out of this thing. I like to scoop the mids and it sounds very good. I didn't get the manual for this thing but it's pretty easy to use. not sure if this thing has been upgraded or not and I really don't care because I would never part with this.
