UTILIZATION

Very easy to use...Nothing but simple knobs that are clearly labeled...Plug and play...The manual is excellent and the presets give you a great start...Tweak from there....The sounds are just like the BOss pedals so I never understood why I don't see more of these around...

SOUND QUALITY

All my guit fiddles like this box....The OD boosts are excellent, there's compression that is ok, sound sculpting like a BBE, reverb that is passable, delay that is, well delay....There's also modulation that kinda sucks but I don't like chorus....

Overall, this thing is an all-in-one box that covers the ground of many BOSS pedals at a fraction of the cost....Worth every penny and built well to boot!

OVERALL OPINION

I like all the features....The OD Boost is nice...The reverbs are sufficient....They are all fine...If you have used Boss pedals before, that is the tone...For the price, you get a TON with this thing...

I don't like the fact that it has no loop...The 4 cable method would be nice with this...It also lacks usable midi...

This is a unit I don't use regularly but when I need something...It's an all-in-one BOSS pedal shop..

I'd buy again!
