Sound — 4
I have Ibanez JS100, Zoom 505 #2 Boss MT-2, Marshall 2200 head. I hate clean sounds it can make your guitar sound really bad. All lows are distorted and nothing can help it. Acoustic effect sucks nothing but lows no clarity. Chorus not so bad, it could be better. Some distotions are good and I like them but some are shit, they have only lots of higs or lots of lows. I like flanger. But this effect for the preiss you can get it is good.

Overall Impression — 6
I play metal, rock, some jazz. I'm playing 7 years now. If this thing was stolen I wouldn't buy another one or another multieffect unit maybe processor. I like the priss of it and some things but it's not good if you want something really good and full of tone.

Reliability & Durability — 8
It's good. But that adapter suplies can causes you a lot of trouble.

Ease of Use — 8
It's very better then Zoom 505 #1. It's maybe the only very good thing on this unit U can learn it fast and the manual is ease to understand. You can play with sound and I like that all kinds of effects. But there could be bigger knobs on the unit.
