Sound — 9
I use the Fish & Chips with an Epiphone G-310 and some DigiTech and Danelectro pedals into a Crate amp. This pedal isn't very noisey at all. This pedal always sounds awesome. If you have the highest and lowest frequencies maxed out with some good distortion you can get a good Dimebag kind of sound.
Overall Impression — 10
I play classic rock to metal and this pedal is a really good match. I have been playing for about 3 years and own a few other pedals, a bass, and 2 guitars. The only complaint that I have about this pedal is that the button to turn it on seems flimsy and is kind of small. If this pedal was ever lost or stolen I would buy another one or even 2 in a heart beat.
Reliability & Durability — 8
I take the Fish & Chips back and forth with me to band practice/friends house whatever and it does just fine. But if I was playing a gig I would probably use a backup just incase I stepped on it the wrong way or something. I can see this pedal lasting me a long time because I don't stomp on my pedals to hard. If you do hit your pedals pretty hard I would recommend getting 2 or stepping up to maybe the Boss EQ.
Ease of Use — 10
To get a good sound out of the Fish & Chips can take some time. Once you find a setting that you like you probably wont change it too much. This pedal is self-explanitory and the manual is pretty much useless. The Fish & Chips adds so much to the sound it sounds wimpy without it.
