Sound — 10
I use this with my Ibanez RG 220b, into a Line 6 Spider II (Spiders are shit no matter what don't ever get one.) This pedal along with my Dimarzio X2N pickup are what give me a good sound. The distortion sounds far better than any of the Spider's distortions. With this pedal you can get settings ranging from AC/DC rock, to Death Metal, with all of them sounding good. As of right now I have the mids boosted to give me an early Megadeth, early Metallica sound, however with the turn of a few dials I can get my sound close to Cannibal Corpse's sound.
Overall Impression — 10
I have been using this pedal for almost 3 years and it has only been good to me.I usually play metal/ shred and sometimes classic rock. With a few adjustments this pedal will suit each genre nicely. I just love this pedal because it gives you a good sound, even with a crappy amp. If this thing was stolen I would go out and buy another, and than claim sweet revenge against the bastard that stole it.
Reliability & Durability — 9
This thing is really reliable. Usually I have to change the battery once every 6 weeks or so, but that's because I use this thing a lot. For a gig, with a charged battery I would use it without a backup. When I was moving this pedal fell down the stairs from the 2nd floor to 1st of my old house. It was as if nothing happened only a small scuff but that's it. Trust me this thing is durable.
Ease of Use — 10
This pedal is awesome. It has controls for highs, low, and mids, obviously but it also has a control that adjusts the mid frequency. Getting the battery out is a little difficult, but that is this pedal's only major problem. This comes with a manual but I didn't use it, I just adjusted my settings on my own.
