Sound — 9
I have a Jackson rr5fr, a homemade axe (named Godzilla) with a very excellent single stolen from a 1979 strat, and a Ibanez GIO. It sounds good with any one of those.its coming out of a Fender Frontman 15G. It sounds fantastic. If you were to chuck this into a Marshall jcm 800 2106 withn 4 400watt amps with celestion G12 speakers, it could kill a mammoth. The distortion is roaring.its a very strong sound. My favourite artists are Pantera, Arch Enemy, Metallica, Slayer, Mastodon etc... Its relatively impossible to get a dimebag sound, just because its so original. But the Arch Enemy blah blah, its easy to dial in a real brootal kick arse sound.
Overall Impression — 9
I play a mix of industrial, thrash, progressive and melo death, and it suits my sound perfectly. I have been playing for three years and bass three before that. I wish I had asked for an adaptor sooner. I love the sounds I can get out of it. It can go from Eric Clapton, to michael amott, to kirk hammett, to munky, in just a few seconds. Its unbeleivable. I love this thing...
Reliability & Durability — 9
since it is built like a tank, and it will not break anytime soon, I can rely on it without a backup, but it does eat through batteries, so the adapter is essential, for a gig.honestly, it takes about 20 minutes to kill a new battery. Its haevy, sturdy and is insane
Ease of Use — 10
this pedal is ballistic. Its so easy to find your sound... Just turn the knobs till it sounds good... Lol. Personally, I like my tone to be relatively sharp, so the treble is usually at 9 ish. But the good thing is the noise gate. I only use it only if I need to, like if I'm playing a guitar with some piece of crap single coil. But usually I like the fuzz.. The manual was easy to read and explained what every thing was.
