Sound — 8
I use this guitar with my Squier Strat (Modded) and my Vox AD30VT 30 Watt Stereo 10 Inch Combo Guitar Amplifier and my Boss DS-1 Distortion pedal. The pedal itself isn't noisy although it can be noisy if I use my DS-1 in a certain setting; other than that, no. The effects this pedal produces are great in my opinion! The pedal only comes with a mono output however.
Overall Impression — 8
I play a mixture of rock, hardcore, metal, bluegrass, blues, a lot! I've been playing guitar for around a year and half now and have had this pedal for a few months. I wish this product had a streo output as well as a mono although the mono will just do for now. I also dislike the small button to activate it. I sometimes find myself having to press it twice just to activate it. However, I like how this little $30 pedal can produce an above-decent sound.
Reliability & Durability — 5
The construction of this pedal is plastic; obviously not making it a durable pedal. The knobs however are de-attachable so you don't have to worry about them breaking anytimes soon. I would not take this to a gig. I would perfer a Boss BF-3 Flanger or something of more solid construction. If you step on this pedal too hard you might break it or damage it. It's not built to last, so don't plan on keeping it forever (my pedal hasn't broken yet).
Ease of Use — 9
This pedal is extremely easy to use! It only has three knobs: speed, regen, and width. Unlike the Boss BF-3 Flanger pedal, this pedal is almost self-explanitory. The Boss Flanger has a few extra knobs and modes that you have to expirement with before you get the hang of it. The instructions that comes with this pedal are not that great. They give you three sample settings and show a pedal board that you can buy for your D.E. pedals.
