Sound — 8
I use a Fender RAD amp, and a Strat. It is not noisy at all, surprising for how old it is. The effects are great. I really like the delay. There are 2, and 4 tap delays, which work great. It took awhile for me to get used to it, so I was without my favourite artists for awhile. Metallica, to Lynyrd Skynyrd, I can get all the sounds. One thing that really pisses me off, is there are only three types of distortion, but at least it is analog.
Overall Impression — 7
I play a lot of metal. I can get the right sounds that I want. I have been playing about 2 years. I own a Fender Strat, an Ovation Roundback, a classical (not sure of the brand), a quarter size classical, and a 3 quarter size steel string acoustic. I wish it had more types of distortion. If it were stolen/lost, I would go to my room and drink it off. I would have to buy something else, because I couldn't afford another one of these pedals. I compared this pedal with the RP7, Zoom G2.1U, and the DigiTech Artist Series. This one dominated the competition.
Reliability & Durability — 10
I sure as hell can depend on it. It is almost solid metal. Everything but the foot switches. I use it with a Zoom G2 pedal as my backup.
Ease of Use — 6
It is fairly easy to use. Setting up a brand new patch is a little difficult. With the program Rpedit, patches are easy to make, but since that doesn't come with the pedal it is not included in the rating. I didn't have a manual for it, but there is one on the internet. DigiTech made a second version of this pedal.
