Sound — 6
I'm using this with my Saga kit Strat (with Fender Tex-Mex pickups) for the most part. It's doesn't give too much hissing, which is good for a $15 pedal. The biggest beef I have with this pedal is that it only sounds good if one or more of the knobs is maxed out. It's hard to get a good mild flange going. When all three knobs are maxed out it sounds like a tremolo + flange. It has a very experimental/psychedelic sound to it.
Overall Impression — 7
I play a lot of progressive rock and the flanger is an important effect for the genre. Unfortunately this flanger is not completely up to snuff in terms of versatility. If you want a gentle flange sweeping in the background while you're wailing on a solo, this is not the pedal for you. Buy this pedal only if you like experimental-sounding effects.
Reliability & Durability — 7
It seems sturdy enough for a plastic-cased pedal, but I wouldn't jump around on it. In the unlikely even that I would use it for a gig I wouldn't worry about having a backup because I don't destroy my pedals. The Switch doesn't click, which caught me off-guard. There is an LED, so it's not impossible to tell when the effect is on.
Ease of Use — 8
Very easy to use, three knobs "regen", "speed", and "depth". I bought it mainly because I don't like the flanger on my Vox AD50VT. The manual is superfluous and you might as well just throw it out. If you have an IQ higher than gravel you'll be able to figure it out on your own.
