Sound — 10
I have a Fender Stratocaster with a Seymour Duncan Humbucker installed in the bridge position along with a Fender Stage 160 amp. There isn't any feedback that I get from this pedal. The distortion is nice and strong and can easily be used for every playing style.
Overall Impression — 10
If this pedal were lost or stolen I'd need to buy a new one, I absolutly love this pedal and couldn't last long without it. I have a Boss DS-1 Distortion pedal as well as a Boss Metal Zone but this is defintely my favorite distortion pedal out of all of them and I can get the exact sound I was looking for. I play mainly punk rock and post hardcore music and the pedal works great for both. Overall it's a well built pedal and suits almost every genre and playing style.
Reliability & Durability — 10
This pedal is what some would call a tank. It is extremely durable and strong. I don't feel the need to have a backup during gigs it's that reliable. I think you could probably set this out in the street and let cars Drive over it without it breaking. If a warranty or some sort of damage replacement offer is given to you like it was me, don't bother since you won't be needing it.
Ease of Use — 9
This pedal is very use to use straight out of the box. It also helps that there are 4 shown settings in the manual so there is less time fiddling with it right away even though I suggest going back later and finding the perfect tone. Actually it has quite an informative manual that I think you should read.
