Sound — 9
I use a custom flying V a Squier and a Fender Frontman 15G. The factory presets volume level is about the same all through the preset patches. Some of the presets are weak but it is always a bad combination of effects. It can always be fixed. I can get the sound out of Van Halen, Hendrix, Rhoads, and I don't really know any blues artists, but I have heard one patch that sounds just like it. The one effect I really like is the Pickup I read online that it changes your single coils to humbuckers. Not sure if it is true but it does make a difference in sound quality.
Overall Impression — 10
I play all the way from some blues to speed metal. This pedal is a great match. I have been playing for 2 and a half years and this pedal is amazing. I have gone through so many genre switches and this pedal has gone with me. If it were stolen or lost I probably would not buy it again or anything else because I don't have the money for two of them:D I love everything about it and hate nothing about it. My favorite feature is being able to use the pedal to turn effects on and off. I do wish you could have to input jacks for two different guitars.
Reliability & Durability — 9
I can always depend on it. I can always move it somewhere because it is very small and easy put in the case and walk around the house with it. Would I use it on a gig without a backup? Very good question, though for me it would depend on what effects I'm using and If I can get a better single effect pedal for that one effect, so I'm not switching a lot.
Ease of Use — 10
Right out of the box I was able to get a sound I liked just from the presets. Edited patches is almost easier to do on the pedal the through x-edit. The manual is amazing it explained using pictures and examples. It really talked me through it. The firmware number is 1.3 I think.
