Sound — 8
I use Ibanez guitars & peavey amps. Preset patches has a great sound, and I can tailor it to fit my sound by editing the patches. One problem I can notice here is the "hiss noise". It's audible on a flanger or a phaser effect during a clean drive. However, I can minimize the noise by using the Zoom Noise Reduction stage.

Overall Impression — 10
I play rock, blues and a touch of jazz music, and so far 06 is flexible. I have Boss MT-2, Ibanez TS & a Dunlop Crybaby Wah, but i love this little gem more. My favorite patches are EVH & VAI. 06 is packed with great sound modules at a reasonable price. I wish Zoom could do some improvements on switching between the patches. I recommend this gadget to all novice and intermediate guitar freaks.

Reliability & Durability — 8
06 comes with a plastic chassis (not recommended for drunkard guitar players). It has dual power supply (batt/ AC adapter). I have often use this gear on a gig and it didn't let me down yet.

Ease of Use — 10
Getting a good sound of it is simple. Just a glance of the manual and the frets' on fire.
