Sound — 10
I use it with my flextone III plus and strat copy and it's wonderful. It won't change your sound, or make the amp sound better, it just changes what channel you're on. Tuners great. I personally think the wah is lovely, just gives you the basic kickass wah sound. Volume pedal goes from no sound right to the max.
Overall Impression — 10
Great match for any Line 6 amp owners, whose amp is compatible with this product. I've been playing for about a year and this is the only pedal I own so far. However I once had a Line 6 spider III and an FBV Shortboard, but I traded those for my flextone III plus. I wanted to get the shortboard again but I realized I don't need 32 different saved channels and that usually the maximum of different channels I use at a time is 3. And if I need to change my sound completly it only takes about 20 seconds to save a new preset if you know what kind of sound you want. Obviously I wish I could save more channels but $349 for the shortboard was just too much. And for 139$ this was just too perfect, but if you have the cash, get the shortboard.
Reliability & Durability — 9
Seems very reliable. I did use it at a gig and always bring it to jamming sessions or anywhere I bring my guitar. Although I am getting some squeak with the volume/wah I'm sure some oil will fix that. Also it comes with a very, very long chord to plug from the amp to the pedal.
Ease of Use — 9
Increadibly easy to use. Recall any four saved channels with increadible ease, and acually if you hold the button on the channel you're currently on the preset mode will go off and manual mode (whatever your amp dials are at) will kick in. But the downside is that you have to hold it for like 2-3 seconds so it doesn't switch immediatly to manual mode. So it's actually like a 5 channel footswith. To Switch to wah you have to push a little hard on the toe but it's not that bad. Nicely lit and has a built in tuner with tap tempo delay (adjust the delay just by tapping one of the switches). Manual is easy to understand but you don't really need it. And the buttons are a little close together so that's why I'm giving it a nine.
