Sound — 10
I'm using this little gizmo with a Fender Strat and an Orange Crush15, for home use or small gigs, it has beautiful tremelo sounds which you can adjust for acoustic effects and so forth...the distortion on it is also very good, gets the best out of an amp, any amp!

Overall Impression — 8
For the styles I play (Punk, Alternative & Indie sort of thing) the pedal does me gr8, has a nice flanger effect which I have aligned next to my usual distortion effect which I have edited it to my own taste and the acoustic guitar sounds are nice too. Favourite feature of this pedal has to be the various different types of flanger and chorus effects. Down side to this pedal is it does mysterious things at gigs...

Reliability & Durability — 6
Very reliable, however, it did somehow jump from one effect to another when I was playing at a gig...

Ease of Use — 10
This is probably one of the most easiest pieces of equipment I have used, easy to edit effects, easy to change from effect to effect, no hassle, no fuss, does the job perfect.
