Purchased from: Tom Lee
Sound — 8
Sound on the RP80 is ok I guess. It's pretty good for it's price and the amount of effects you get/create.
Overall Impression — 8
I play many different styles and the Machine had worked out great for all of them. If you like Rage Against The Machine or Audioslave and wanting to create the same effects as Tom you can with the RP80. The only down side on this Machine is its looks and some trouble switching effects during a song. Buying seperate pedals make it more convenient but each pedal costs about $80.00 and up plus you need to buy the adaptor and a bunch of cords to connect them all or you can buy the RP80 for the price of two pedals which includes the adaptor and can create a variety of sounds. Overall I think it's a good buy.
Reliability & Durability — 6
The Machine's reliability is better than it looks and I would use it for minor gigs like (in bars, talent shows, etc. but I don't recommend it for important gigs like (on tour, making a debut, etc).
Ease of Use — 8
Because it's a multi-effect Machine it does take a while to learn how to use it, but it's worth every minute cause you can make great effects with this Machine. It does come with a manual that tells you everything you need to know w/pictures so make sure you don't lose it it you decide to purchase this item.
