Sound — 9
I've only been playing for two years now, so I don't have any good gear. I'm using a Squier fat strat and a peavey practice amp (rage 158). Everything sounds great. The distortions sound much better than the distortion that the amp provides, but I don't know how it would sound on a good setup. All the effects sound great. I play Mudvayne, System Of A Down, tried some Mars Volta (failed), and a lot of Tool.

Overall Impression — 9
Overall I think it's a great pedal for me, a beginner. I don't know how it would fare in the hands or below the feet, as it may be of a professional. I would definitely recommend it to anyone, no matter what kind of music they play.

Reliability & Durability — 8
It is made of plastic, which sucks, but as long as you don't throw it, jump on it, or light it on fire while you're playing, I see no reason why it wouldn't last. As for using it at a gig, I played a song. Once. It worked, and I'd do it again.

Ease of Use — 10
This unit is very customizable. You can get so many unique sounds out of it, and editing patches is a breeze so long as you're willing to invest a few minutes in reading various sections of the manual, which is written clearly.
