Sound — 9
I personally use a 75watt amp with an Ibanez rg350ex. With all these as a combination it sounds really good. Some of te effects on the G2 are a bit weak but some of them are amazing. The only problem with the effects that I have is changing from one to another in the middle of a song. (e.g. Say ou wanted to go from effect 1 to 10. It takes ages). I have to admit though some of the distortion effects are really meaty and give great sound quality.
Overall Impression — 8
I play a lot of punk/pop punk songs ad the pedal gives me a great variety of sounds for each one. As there are lots of distortion effects on this it gives me a great sound quality. Finally, if I were you I wouldn't buy this I would wait and collect single pedal and create a pedal board. This option maybe a lot more expensive, but trust me if you have the money to do so I would for sure as pedal boards are the ultimate. You can get your favourite noises out of the guitar whilst looking cool on stage with loads of effects pedals.
Reliability & Durability — 10
I would definately depend on this pedal as it is robust and can take a few knocks. For a gig I would'nt take a back up pedal as it is a really reliable pedal. I have had this item for four years now and have not had to take it back for repairs or maintenance(touch wood) so far.
Ease of Use — 8
Fairly easy to use once you get the hang of it. Good effects on there but when you put the drums on to keep rythm whilst playing. The drums go really quiet when the guitar is playing and when the guitar is silent the drums go loud again. Does this on all amplifiers. The manual that comes with the G2 is quite complex if i'm honest as it goes into detail a bit too much and gets hard to understand.
