Sound — 10
This pedal has an amazing sound! I play it with my Gretsch Synchromatic solidbody guitar (which looks and plays like a Gibson Les Paul). I use a Fender Frontman G practice amp. I can get anything from low crunchy rhythm tones, to blazing high tones for solos and lead. I use this pedal for almost everything that I play.

Overall Impression — 10
This pedal matches my music perfectly. I am in a rock band that plays heavier things and some punk and this pedal fits my style perfectly. If this pedal were stolen I would hunt down the person who stole it and beat the crap out of them and steal it back. If I lost it, I would cry my eyes out, then rush to the music store and buy another one. I love everything about this pedal and I use it for just about everything.

Reliability & Durability — 8
I can definitely depend on this pedal and I plan to use it at my next gig. I use it at band practices as well. As far as a backup goes, I would be comfortable, but I would definitely bring an extra 9V battery just in case.

Ease of Use — 8
This pedal is relatively easy to use once you get the hang of it. The knobs are pretty self explanatory and easy to use. It was a little difficult to synchronize the settings on the pedal with my amp settings, but once I did that, it was very easy.
