Sound — 9
I love the sound on this pedal! I'm using a Fat Strat usually on the humbucker pickup, and let me tell you, the sound is incredible! You get four knobs: loud (volume), low (bass), high (treble), and grunge (distortion). The settings are quite easy to get a good sound from, and you aren't just limited to a Grunge sound. The only problem is, getting your settings on your amp to sound good with the settings on the pedal (a big pain).
Overall Impression — 9
I love the pedal! While I may be a bit byist because I play mainly Grunge on this pedal, it is actually quite adaptable to other styles too. The good definatly outweighs the bad here, and I prefer this tone over some random distortion pedal. The only big flaw is the battery life, but that can be fixed by buying a $10 AC adapter. The only thing I miss on it is a mids knob. But don't worry! It's not that big of a deal! Overall, I recommend this pedal to anyone who wants a good rock tone (and who dosen't want that).
Reliability & Durability — 8
This pedal is really quite durable, but the only problem of not having a backup at a gig would be the battery life. The battery life is real bad, if you forget and leave this thing plugged in for a night, then the battery will be close to dead. To solve this though I bought a AC adapter, so I don't have to worry about batteries anymore!
Ease of Use — 8
The pedal is pretty easy to use, actually, people probably understand "low" and "high", better than "treble" and "bass"! If you can't get a good tone just messing with the knobs, then inside the pedals box, there is a list of different tones you can use, complete with pictures showing where to turn the knobs.
