Sound — 5
I use a Peavey Transtube Special 212, and a bunch of ESP and BC Rich guitars with it. It has a noise gate so it usually isn't noisy. Some of the EFX are bad, but generally they are all ok, none are horrid, and there are a lot, so lots of different sounds and options. I don't think it's very versitile, and unless your favorite artist have really fake tone, I doubt you will get the tone of your favorite artist. The chorus, delay, reverb, Whammy, EQ, and noise gate are pretty good. Just about all the rest suck. The distortion is horrid and nasal, not good for anything beyond blues.
Overall Impression — 6
I play, shred, metal, blues, classical, rock, and industrial, it works to help my amps distortion, but this thing has some of the worse distortion I have heard, don't use it! I have been playing for 3 years, and even though this works for what I need it for, I am lucky I don't have to depend on it! I wish I would of known about how useless a lot of aspects of this pedal are. If it was stolen, I would buy a rack mount system, because I don't like stomp boxes much. I would say this is one of the best multi EFX pedals, but this by far does not make up a perfesional rig. I wish it had better sound, other then that this thing is ok, and if used right can make your sound thicker, fuller, and have more clarity.
Reliability & Durability — 5
I did use it at a gig once, it didn't work very well. and froze when I needed it the most. I would say you need a backup with this pedal.
Ease of Use — 4
It isn't very easy, the presets suck for the most part, it took me about a month of messing with it to get it to sound good. The manual isn't very good. They replaced it with the RP300A, which isn't much better.
