Sound — 10
I'm using it with a Fender frontman and an aria guitar and it makes that crappy guitar sound like the voice of god! Some of the preset effects suck but there are many good ones from all styles of music. It has 120 presets. 40 that you can custimze and save on to the unit, 40 artist presets(Iron Maiden, Nickleback and many more), and for factory presets. It has 11 effects, including wah, flanger, phaser, chours, and Whammy. It has a compressor, noise gate, amp simulator(Marshall's, Mesa Boogie's, Fender's) expresion pedal, reverb, 3 band eq, drum Machine, tuner, and much more.
Overall Impression — 10
I love this pedal. It fits any style of music because of the flexability and how customizable each effect is. Very good deal. If lost or stolen I would defeintly buy another.
Reliability & Durability — 8
Very reliable. has a metal caseing. I'm Not sure I would use it at a gig because if your effects aren't in order for the songs you want to play it would be to hard to find what your lookung for, but if they are in the order you wan tI would use it in a gig. It is very excelent to jam by yourself or when your band is practicing or if you like to save space with on pedal istead of like 5 or 6 stompboxes.
Ease of Use — 10
It is very easy to use. Every thing you need to know is right on the unit itself. very easy to edit effects and almost an unlimeted combination. I've had it for almost a year and I'm still coming up with supriseingly good effects. And for those of you that can't Pick it up right of the bat, the manual is very easy to understand.
