Sound — 9
I am running several guitars through it pushing from a Peavey Studio Pro 110 solid state amp. It really sounds good on all of my guitars through this amp. It has three different settings Classic, Fat, and Tight. The Fat setting sounds amazing through my amp, and I plugged my LP into a Peavey DB amp and set it on the classic setting. Absolutely great sound, with a little tweaking, you can get almost any of the classic lead sounds from Clapton to the Allman Bros and I play some pretty good WSP and Govt Mule covers through it as well. The tight setting is a little more of a modern sound, I don't really play with it much so I can't comment on it.
Overall Impression — 9
I play in a cover band and we cover a wide variety of music. I absolutely could not go without this pedal. I have played through pedals that cost more than twice this much, and you aren't getting any better sound out of those than with this pedal. I love that its an easy to use analog configuration, because I like for things to be simple on stage so I don't accidentally mess something up. Its extremely durable. The only thing I would change is how touchy the knobs are, any little movement changes the tone dramatically, I would like a little more play in the knobs.
Reliability & Durability — 10
Totally dependable, I gig with it and wouldn't think of needing a backup. It is built very well. I actually dropped it on a cement floor and plugged it in and it was just fine. Solid construction and a really good value for the dollar!
Ease of Use — 10
This pedal is a super easy analog configuration. No need to even read any kind of instructions, its plug and play. The different settings are easy to Switch to and each provide a different sound. The knobs are a little touchy though, it seems as if the smallest movement changes the tone a lot.
