Sound — 9
I'm using an Epiphone G-400 guitar with it and a Kustom amplifier. It's never noisy with the noise gate on. The only effect that could be enhanced is the wah because it's very weak. I could get the sound of Dave Murrey of Iron Maiden. The distortion always sounds good even with low gain, it sounds like you have a lot of it on, and it's a very clean distortion.
Overall Impression — 9
This product can range from country to Death Metal in a split second. I've been playing for about 3 years and it's perfect for anyone. I love the quick changes you can make on it. I would choose anything DigiTech over any effect processor out there.
Reliability & Durability — 10
You can always depend on anything DigiTech for a gig or just at home for practice.
Ease of Use — 8
This effect processor is exrememly easy to get a great sound out of it with it's effect choices, and it's 8 track recorder (the recorder's time can be greatly increased with flash card). It operates only on an AC adapter so it'll never run out of battery power during a gig. Comes with an expression pedal for effects such as wah, Whammy, and ya-ya. There are two more upgrades to this product such as the GNX4.The manual is very easy to read and you'll start understanding the product in 10 minutes, even if you've never used an effects processor before!
