Sound — 10
I have several guitars that I run through it, and they all sound great, including the new Washburn Cumberland Acoustic that I just got. I run it through a Vox Wah and a Ibanez TS9 to my Marshall AVT 100 tube preamp. I haven't found noise, and the effect sounds great.
Overall Impression — 9
This is a great pedal. I've been playing for 2 years about and I can get a lot of sweet sounds out of this pedal. I recommend that you spend a few extra bucks if you are in the market for this pedal to buy the 9v adaptor. I'd buy it again if it were stolen or lost. I like the ease of control and the great sound of this pedal, but don't like the battery life. This is a good pedal, however it's not the most available or cheap.
Reliability & Durability — 7
This is where it may suffer. Unless you buy the 9v adapter, this beast drains the batteries. I plugged in a 9v, and because I'm lazy and don't unplug my instrument cables, the battery was dead in 4 days. Jeez. However, now that I have the 9v adapter, I'd depend on this without a backup for sure. Nothing like a steady power source.
Ease of Use — 10
This pedal is very very easy to use. I had to order it through guitar center because they don't carry it in stock any more, so it arrived fresh in box and with all the information. I didn't bother reading the manual, that's how easy it is to set this thing up. A button to pick whether you want to have a swooping (chorus) or pitch shifting (vibrato) sound. A knob to set the intensity. A pedal to set the speed. simple stuff.
