I got this unit in Memphis TN at yarbrough's music.It retailed in at a wild 495.95 list and I just assummed to forget about it. Well about a week later I went back and played through it and talked the guy's into hooking me up for about 300.00, they said sure . And the rest is history.

There are so many great things with this pedal, I mean the preamp is so real on it,it just blows me away.It uses COSM technology which is if you don't know (one wicked model maker).It has very realistic sounds of some of the most popular amps,and the distortions/overdrives are great too.Also for all you effects freaks, it has awesome modulation and pitch shifting qualitites.But the real mind blower is the delay, it is so versitile that you can use it in any situation,studio or live.Dude it's just all that and more ,and for the price ,it just can't be beat.

Well after raving about all the good stuff ,it's time for the bad.
ONE- GET READY TO GO ON AN EDITING TRIP.
TWO-THE LEVEL ADJUSTMENT IS ON THE BACK OF
THE UNIT (I PERSONALLY DON'T LIKE THAT).
THREE-THE FACTORY PRESETS SUCK.
Other than that it's all good.

The construction of the pedal is brutal,to bust this you gotta be pretty sick in the head.It just ain't gonna happen.And the quality is just great,like I said before for the price it just can't be beat.

Well the bottom line,you need to go try one,you won't be disappointed at all.For all the stuff thats packed inside,it's like spending ten grand or more.So just go try one and then shell out a few hundred and have a blast when you get home.
