Ease of Use: This pedal has 2 on/off buttons one main and one for the chorus. 3 buttons control the speed, intensity and output volume. The volume is easy to adjust and it does not need any corrections regardless the systems you plug into. The speed and intensity are preatty easy to configure but if you touch them its really hard to get the last preset back (the speed nob is really sensitive). Overall - preatty easy. // 9

Sound: The sound is great. This is the best leslie simulator on the market (not caomparing it to Vintage pedals but the mass produce ones). You really can't explain how this unit makes your imagination start working until you try it. The only problam is switching it on while playing because it starts off with the level all the way up and than adjust down so you get a really loud sound for the first second... I have to say this is the hendrix sound but you really need to play with it until you figure how to get a great sound out of it. // 9

Reliability & Durability: Very reliable, built like a brick. Its quite heavy and not that small. This unit will not fail you on shows, the leds always inform you whats your configuration right now and the buttons are heavy so you really in control of this unit. Gets the highest score for me here. // 10

Overall Impression: Great unit, its just what you are looking for if you want the hendrix sound or the gilmour sound or the... You get the picture. The unit will not come off your pedalboard ones its on it. I've found numerous songs I play I can use it in as a Vibrato and some songs as the leslie rotating speaker effect. This does the job anytime and people always ask me what I was using in this section or the other, most likely the answer will be the univibe. // 9
